I read your generally unfavourable reviews and booked anyway; three star accommodation usually has a three star price tag and since we only intended to sleep and shower in the hotel our expectations were simple. There is no doubt that the Malacca Straits has seen better days, looking a little run down at present, but the reception staff were friendly... More

Most hotels in melaka were fully booked but this hotel had rooms. When we reached there, our experience at the front desk revealed why. It was just massive confusion. The group infront of us had problems that left them visibly annoyed. The hotel did not have our reservation but thank goodness we had the print out. We complained to the... More

This hotel was way over-priced for what we paid. The women at the front desk kept us at the desk for 20 minutes prior to checking in because she had added additional charges onto our booking.com total but could not explain what they were for. We then said we wait until the morning and discuss with her manager which we... More

Good Service - after booking the hotel, the hotel noticed that they are not able to do verification for credit cards and requested me to do a transfer of the money to their local bank account. However, as a non resident of Malaysia, of course I won't have a Malaysia bank account to do transfer. After speaking to the staff,... More

Just returned from a one nighter in Melacca. As it's a public holiday in Malaysia this weekend the whole of Malacca was booked out leaving us with the proverbial Hobson's choice of hotels. Anyway, the Malacca straits Hotel is a reasonably priced establishment that lacks the frills or location benefits that some of the other hotels can offer. It's only... More

If you're going to stay for a night or two in Malacca on a business trip, I think this hotel is still okay because location are quite strategic... We're travelling in a group of 9 people so car park is the most important factor as we've 5 cars and 1 lorry truck which park nicely at the roadside... Since we're... More

The pillow on the bed really STINKS n SMELLS badly! There were no towels available in the bath room and we have to call... More

Low density hotel with better care of customers. Location within walking distance to dataran pahlawan. Suitable for those love to walk around with family and children.
