1. Hotel location is great and easy accessible to shopping malls, Pahlawan etc. It is just behind the Equatorial hotel. 2. Ample of huge car parks available. F.O.C. 3. Spacious room with good air-conditioning. 4. Please make sure the lighting in the elevator (lift) is working properly. The building already looks very old and dirty so don't make it looks... More

The room was of good size and adequately equipped. The bathroom was alright with the shower over the bath tub, which was not securely fitted, This resulted in some unexpected movement when having a shower, which was a bit unnerving. Breakfast was pretty basic with a very limited selection. However the cheerful staff did offer to proveide freshly cooked eggs!

Whilst it is fair to say the hotel is a bit tired the rooms are a good size and very clean with comfortable fittings. Every day we had new clean sheets,towels and toiletries. Being from Europe we can struggle with some of the more Asian type of breakfast this was recognised by the owner who had the kitchen make us... More

This hotel is run by my father. It doesn't look like much, but the rooms are really good. I have stayed there before. If you have any complaints, please send them to me. I am in charge of the complaints and hope you will come again. Thank you.

On a recent impromptu weekend getaway, i stayed at this hotel as most other hotels were fully booked. I was reluctant to stay here in a first place having read a negative reviews on them. However, as i really need a hotel somewhere near dataran pahlawan, i gave it a try to this hotel. Come and join my experience ...... More

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
