This hotel is far better than average, but it is isolated from the town by a massive building site, which is both visually and aurally intrusive. Yes, you can use the board walk along the river, rather than the road, but it is breaking up in parts, and the fact that it is through the mangrove margins of the river... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and weren't disappointed. It is a lovingly restored colonial building but with a modern touch. The bedroom was great, very comfortable, nice bathroom, really good shower and extremely comfortable bed. They add little touches like sweet treats provided each day in the room. We had a view of the river, however, unfortunately,... More

We have just returned to Singapore from Malacca, where we stayed two nights at the Majestic Malacca. I felt that this hotel would probably be the "best of a bad bunch" in terms of the hotel options in Malacca. I am not sure that was actually the case. Positives: 1. Very friendly and warm welcome 2. Large rooms with all... More

This is one of the best hotels in which I ever stayed. Almost everything is close to perfection: - the hotel is not so big as many 5 star chain hotels, you feel really like a guest - upon arrival you are asked to sit down in the lobby which looks more like a cozy sitting place, you are offered...

This may be all there is in Malacca and if so, how dreadful. This hotel is located across from a construction site and close to abandoned houses in disrepair. There is a hospital to another side. Not only is there noise from this, but there is no insulation between rooms so if anyone uses the bathroom in the rooms to... More

We had a four day excursion to Melaka from Singapore last December. The reviews in Trip Advisor obviously attract you to this Hotel. In fact, it wasn't our first choice as the Casa del Rio has slightly more flexible rooms and is in a more central location. However, they we full so we "ended up" here. On this occasion fate...

We spent three nights at the Majestic and found it to be a well run, and comfortable hotel. True its a little way outside the centre, but it is walkable, and there are plenty of taxis. They have a good spa, with an excellent massage service - I had a back problem which got a lot better after my massage.... More
