“It's okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Stayed here for 4 nights. The room was clean and the toilet and shower were good. Pricewise, it was a little bit more than I wanted to spend but the accommodation was decent so I didn't mind too much. If you leave the hotel and turn left you'll head towards Jonkers Street which is great. Make sure you try the Chicken Rice Balls. If you turn right out of the hotel and walk to the petrol station, then go right again over the bridge and walk for 10 minutes you'll reach a little cake shop called Saint Merry on Jalan Munshi Abdullah street, it's opposite a large hotel. It is simply fantastic and amongst the best cakes I've ever eaten. It's definitely worth the walk there. Make sure you try the Taiwanese Cream Cakes and the freshly made pineapple tarts, which are much better than the ones in Jonkers Street.

We bought the package through GroupOn. It was Double Bed room. Found that the room clean and neat but it was a bit different from the hotel picture, i'm a bit disappointed. Everything was okay and satisfied, just the bathroom. The drain hole was clogged, they need to repair this thing which it disturbing your value time with water. We missed the welcome drink and breakfast because too exhausted sight-seeing around Malacca. My husband and I will come back if they improve the drain matters. Thanks!

My husband & I stay there a night for leisure, it was terrible experience. Sound eco was bad, can hear sound from all upstairs, down stair and neighbours..air Cond was very noisy, house keeping is bad, we saw cigarette butt near window, bed cover has smell and not clean. Worst part is the toilet, shower head has water dripping on & off, quite noisy. Sit wash closet cover was damn dirty, can see huge dark spot underneath it which make us feel awful.

Stayed for a night, Triple Room
Room & Bathroom : Clean & pleasant.
Buffet Breakfast: Basic, simple & tasty.
Staff: Friendly & helpful.
May stay again in the future.
Nearby the town.
The room is not very small since my 2 years daughter can play around in the room.
For those who are looking for a short stay, should consider this hotel.

We have stayed twise at this hotel, choosing it mainly forprice and location. Each time we have requested room changes due to smell or tiny bathroom. Staff are generally helpful. The breakfast is a basic affair but adequate. Easy access to thr river walk and the Jonker Walk.

Bed : Ok
Air cond : Noisy
View from small window(fr 4th floor) : Not much!
Price : Paid RM170 for a triple room with simple buffet breakfast, consider OK!
Toilet : Once shower, the whole toilet will get wet, so if you are with elderly, you have to dry the floor every time after shower!
Wifi : No
Receiption staff : Ok
Breakfast serving staff : Rude
Breakfast : White bread, fried rice, sausage, bean, mixed vege, water melon + cake, coffee/tea, starts 7:30am
Remark : They have "auto air freshener"(~every 30min) in the room, which I don't think is a good idea!
Hot water machine is outside the room!
We requested to see the room first, but not allowed!
Telephone in the room : Not working!

hotel may be haunted. the power supply for the room just went off. upon checking, there is no
tripping at the main switch. the staff came to the room to restore the supply, but still no power supply. Why????? must be haunted!.
the room also stinked strongly because of humid and wet carpet. aircond on, window open wide
for airing also didn't help. the staff are rude, not helpful and never admit mistake . especially, a chinese man manning the front office, very arrogant. just tell you off like that - if you are not
satisfied, then dont stay on, move out to another place where you feel better. afterall, they have
collected your money already,, they got nothing to loose.
this type of service, public relations, never go again and never ever recommend to anyone.
haunted and stinky hotel.
