You can can a decent hotel room for less than RM100 nowadays but yet this place is charging RM170 for a family room thats very old, ill equipped and with dirty sheets and pillows. There were no bottled water, telephone system doesn't work, TV was without remote, epoxy painted floors with no carpets, shower wets the entire bathroom and I don't know what else because I stopped myself from feeling further dissapointment.

This hotel is now called Permaisuri MITC Hotel Melaka.

Was going to Malacca with family for the Hari Raya holidays and had booked at another hotel. At the last minute decided to go one day earlier but the hotel booked was full and so were most of the hotels. Finally managed to get a triple room at RM200, the rest of the hotels were above RM400 and did not want to spend that much as checking in late.

There was nothing about this hotel that impressed me apart from it not being managed well & very run down. Many 50-80 room budget hotels are managed better in terms of cleanliness & facilities.

Check in was smooth and uneventful. Booked for triple, room only had two towels. Asked for the missing towel and did not come until asking another two times.

Extra pillow without pillow case and was full of smelly stain marks (as kept in wardrobe....it stank too) Room furnishing has seem better days, old tv. Bathroom very bare and had mold on ceiling

Breakfast was of low quality and most items ran out with replenishment very slow. Staffs not bothered to attend to guests unless they did not have a choice when confronted by guests.

All in all, the worst hotel that have stayed at.....suffice to say that will never stay there again.

I stayed there for one night, for business purposes. what I could see in this hotel is they are so weak in managing hotel esp their facilities. poor old furniture, small room (just can fit two small single bed), and the automatic key lock functioned poorly. dirty because when I check in, the toilet bowl still have a pee and not flushed!
This hotel still use a small 13inch box tv, WITHOUT WATER HEATER, basic toiletries and small closet cupboard. The main credit goes to their food for breakfast. food was good, helpful kitchen staff and although not much of variation, but still acceptable. location near MITC and just a walking distance. Mcdonalds also available nearby which is operated for 24hours.
I wont stay here again, and choosed to stay here at this hotel was a big mistake.

Room Tip: a good tips is dont stay at this hotel or you will regret.

Last minute decision travel to Melaka, sees this renamed Permaisuri MITC Hotel as among the few available hotel for the public plus school holiday weekend. Reading all the reviews, makes me wonder whether it is the right choice. Location wise, the hotel is in Ayer Keroh area, which means its close to nearby popular attraction (ie Zoo, Mini Asean, Planetarium, parks etc) and shopping malls. If you're planning to go to Melaka town a lot, you are better off finding accommodation in town itself as Ayer Keroh is easily 20 minutes away

Check-in was hassle free, even if its was a bit crowded at the reception when we arrived. Seems that the hotel is popular for functions as well. The rooms we got, a Triple Room, do not have a fridge and limited TV channel on offer. The bathroom does not have a curtain at the shower area, which makes the bathroom wet. and in general, the place are showing its age. Oh, just before I forget, as with some other reviewers, quite surprised that there are no towel in the room on arrival, but a reminder to the reception when we went out at 5.30pm settles it (when we came back after dinner, its there already)

The buffet breakfast spread has enough variety, and was OK. If its not to your tastebuds, McD is just behind the hotel as well as a few restaurant and food courts are nearby. If one is driving, ample outdoor parking space is around. This hotel could be a base for your excursion around Melaka. The hotel staffs are friendly, but I have the feeling they are a bit understaffed at this outlet :)

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors, it should be a bit quieter and better equipped

This hotel has been renamed Permaisuri MITC Hotel is strategically located in the growing township of Malacca International Trade Centre which is also the administrative and commercial centre of the state. Suitable for guests traveling in own vehicles. Conveniently used as a base for tour busses since it is located next to Ayer Keroh which has several popular attractions and ample parking spaces for vehicles. Shopping malls are just a few minutes away and food courts offering local dishes and fast foods are available within the vicinity. The hotel facilities cater for official, business and social functions. The rooms are not as one expects ~ just better than student hostels. Refurbishments are urgently needed to attract guests to return. Services need improvement.
