“Basic room with great selection of lunch buffet and dinner.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Stayed here for 8nights. The room was very basic with queen and single bed, slim TV, open cupboard, study table, kettle. There was no fridge available in the room. So advisable to finish your cold drink outside because if you bring your drink back to your room, there is no place to keep it cold. the bathroom have shower with hot water. If raining outside, you can here the water flowing through your room because there is a big white pipe at the corner of your room. And the hotel was far from city centre. Near to hospital, parkson mall, Aeon mall and few petrol stations.

Dear Sir,
We do not have fridge in our Superior rooms. The rest we have. As for the noise from the white pipe at the corner of the room when rain, I am afraid we cant do anything about it as it has been designed this way. Apologize for that.
Thank you.

stayed for 2 nite at the apartment building ( behind the hotel ) in 2 bedroom unit ( for 5 people ) . the unit is huge- love the bedrooms..can easily fit 10-15 people ( bring your own travelling mattress & blanket ) This apartment is very basic , not for fussy & clean freak kind of person ) , No kitchenette area , the small bar fridge - not working well ,have guarded & ample parking lots for guest
- bad "free wifi " connection ( you have to asked the hotel reception , for the password -when u check in )
- the bed are comfy., the air-con working but not cool enough .
- one 1 lift .
- they have ironing room at level 2 .
- the buffet breakfast spread ( at Kings Cafe )- not bad . But they certainly need to improve on waffle & egg section - very slow ! & change the bowl for the poridge - too small .
- location wise , very easily find ( just nearby -about 400m before melaka mall ) and infront of Pantai Hospital .
- they need to improve on their housekeeping - found fews plastic wrappers beside the bedside table ( on the 1st day -after checking in )
- they have "play area " ( just beside apartment building ) - swings & small wadding pool for toddler only )

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your feedback on your stay with Kings apartment sometime in May 2014. We will improve on the house keeping issue that you have mentioned in your review. As for the wifi facility, sometimes it is not very responsive due to heavy traffic on that day or particular hour. It usually happens when the Hotel is full house. Apologize for that.
Thank you.

Staying at their apartment few years back for 2 months. Not-so-good house keeping service as they will try as hard as they can to NOT tidy up your room. But the unit is big, big enough for 2 families with 4 members each. Buffet are nice. Breakfast are good. Beds are comfy.

Stayed at this hotel for a night, it was an apartment that i've got for a night. It is really basic and cheap.

+
- cheap apartment (MYR315), great if you have a big family and don't mind basic facilities, it will easily fit 10 - 15 people if you are willing to bring own sleeping bags, blankets and pillows.
- not too bad breakfast buffet
- nice hotel lobby, but do not expect the same in the apartments.
- ample car park space for guests
- nearby to attractions like zoo, mini malaysia.

-
- bad internet connection
- the room is in need of repair
- stained ceiling
- old bedsheets, it should have been thrown away and replaced
- beds are old.
- dirty sofa
- room furnishing should be replaced

However, if you are willing to lower your expectation, you should not be disappointed.

Stayed March 2014

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your feedback. Apologize for the inconvenience you encountered when stayed at our Kings Apartment 2 weeks ago. Our management has decided to upgrade and refurbish all the rooms and whatever amenities that need to be maintained at the Apartment. Work will begin in 2 months time. So your comments are timely and hope you will patronize us again in future.
As for the internet service, I noticed that the whole of March we were facing this problem. Our supplier has just reset and hope it will be okay now.
Thank you once again.

Thank you for your feedback. Apologize for the unpleasant smell that you had encountered during your stay at our hotel. We have rectified it. The smell probably would have come from the wardrobe. We had air freshened and ionized it.
Thank you.

We hired a rental car from Kuala Lumpur and drove down to Melaka. Highly recommend travelling like this by the way. I had purposely booked Kings online prior to arriving in Malaysia for the free and easy carparking and budget price and given reviews said clean and tidy. Location is easy to find with GPS, but being right by the main road and large intersection and opposite a hospital - the traffic and sirens are a bit noisey! It is clean and tidy but rooms a bit dated. Lunch and evening meals in restaurant are great - but breakfast a bit odd. Beware of the coffee - unless you like it very strong! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location is great if you have a vehicle - bit out of the way if you don't. Bukit Cafe & Restaurant just a short walk away past the petrol stations well worth going to - very cheap meals, great food, service is excellent. Overall the Kings did what we needed, a solid place to sleep - but not to hang out in.

Thank you for your feedback. As for the noise and sometimes siren, it cant be helped as the Hotel is located close by a Hospital and the main highway leading to the city of Melaka.
Coffee taste is very subjective. Some like it thick and some like it dilute. We will inform Kings Cafe and try to comprise.

Was there to attend an event in Melaka. Managed to book this hotel. Price is reasonable. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Food at the restaurant is good but the room condition and cleanliness is terrible. Got the joining room and both room has faulty aircon. Towels in room is very very old and dirty. Advisable to bring along your own towel and toiletries. If you are on a tight budget, this hotel is just the best. 30mins to Melaka town, good luck.
