Stayed there a night for a short getaway. Was looking for a heritage boutique hotel. Found this instead. Convenient location, squeaky clean and great service.

Rooms are small but you are out in the streets most of the time - Melaka is amazing! The gingerflower is good value for money. Breakfast is lovely but basic, and you will probably want... More

Unfortunately, one of our group members was taken ill, and couldn't come. Gingerflower graciously allowed us to cancel the room at the... More

A wonderfully clean boutique hotel with really friendly and helpful staff. Great location just off the main strip. What could have made this a Great stay was if the windows were somehow sound proofed. We got 2 rooms facing either side of the roads flanking this shophouse and the dizzying sound of thumping Karaoke music emanating from passing trishaws was... More

Location is very strategic, 2-3 mins walk to Jonker Street and the room was good enough for couples or w a child. Theres 2 reserved parking at the back of the hotel and a public carpark nearby.

Stayed for a night here on cny. The room is very small but neat and clean. The location is superb, only behind Jonker street. Breakfast is simple but adequate. A night there's security at main door where guest are required to tap their room card at the card sensor in order to enter the hotel, which I think it's good.... More
