This hotel is clean and well maintained. Free wifi in all rooms. The location is very good, KCF and food stalls just around the corner (i think that's why no catering service is provided inside hotel). Friendly staffs as well. Recommended for low cost traveller.

Stayed at this hotel for just one night, on my trip to Melacca... Very very basic, and gives you exactly what they promise. Clean room, a good bed and a nice bathroom with running hot water. 2 bottles of water come in free as part of the room price. A standard 2 star property, situated in a brilliant location... just...

Bathroom is clean, decent sized, with good, non-leaky fixtures. Beds are very comfortable. But room came without breakfast. Staff is helpful, comfortable with English & lent us umbrellas for our 2-days there... More

Our expectation towards the hotel as well. To our surprise,  Selectstar hotel- as many recommended in this site- is a nice and clean place to stay in.  Staff are... More

The hotel is quite rundown in the room. Everything looks old to me in the room. There is a strong carpet smell in the room. My wife and daughter after sleeping complaint whole body itchy. Not a good hotel to stay.
