I have ordered the room with hard wood floor as per lonely planet's sugguestion. The room is dirty and I had to ask them to change bed sheet. The room looks really old. Internet was super slow at night. It is not so cheap as I paid RM200 for that. Not recommended.

We just wanted to spend a night in Melaka, and after an hour walk we found this hotel, which seemed ok for $60. The rooms are big, but apparently have no maintenance, so there was mould in the bathroom ceiling and the AC didn't work so well. Even worse than that was that the bed sheets hadn't been changed. We... More

We book a hostel near Jonker street but was not what we expected. So we hunted around and found this cute boutique hotel. Had to bargain for the price because we were a group of 6. In the beginning they did not budge but eventually they gave us a discount because we stayed 3 nights all int he suite room.... More

My friends and I decided to visit Melaka spur of the moment on a Saturday, and after many calls, this was the only hotel that had two rooms for the four of us. I was hesitant after looking at the rating, and now I know why -- it's filthy. Our room had all kind of bugs all over it --... More

Stayed for a night at this hotel, found it after searching hard for room to stay as Equatorial and many other hotels were fully booked. What a surprise, this hotel is located right next to Equatorial, an excellent location indeed. This hotel claims to be the first batik boutique hotel in Malacca. At MYR250 a night inclusive of breakfast for... More

We had the basic room. The room was large, beds firm, and the shower head was very nice. Staff is pleasant. The breakfast buffet is mediocre and I could have used a bedside light. For the money, it was a good place to stay.

I loved this hotel because it is strategically situated in the city centre. It is right behind Equatorial hotel and it is within walking distance to the new Dataran Pahlawan mall. You can get to Jonker Walk easily from this hotel too. In fact you can get to all the places of interest in Melaka by foot (if you're the... More

We booked this hotel because there were no other rooms left. Claimed to be the first Batik boutique hotel - and maybe even the last. The Hotel is inconveniently located behind Equatorial Hotel, which is another giant architectural mishap. To reach the place, you must walk on a narrow busy road hoping you'd not get run over by a car.... More
