“Great location and accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This hotel was found easily by our taxi driver. On check in we were given cool towels and a welcome drink and shown to our rooms. The staff were very helpful and friendly for our whole stay.

The rooms were clean and comfortable and quiet. We stayed in a deluxe room and loved the rain shower. The bed was firm but this is to be expected in Asia. Location was great with a minute walk to joker street and main restaurants. Breakfast was included with the room and this was eaten across the road in their cafe. It was buffet style with a good selection of food and omelettes cooked on request.

Overall we had a great stay and would stay again.

Extra friendly and helpful staff who introduced us to some great nyonya food. Nice modern clean rooms of high quality, set in a traditional courtyard setting, which really gets you immersed in the atmosphere of the old town. Superb location near Jonker st. The lobby feels like a shophouse with style and is cosy yet cool (literally), great escape from the humidity.

My second time staying in this place. First time I stayed on the ground floor just behind the reception. Not bad! I especially like their rainfall shower head. This time I stayed on the second floor still as awesome.

Location was the main draw for me to stay as it was just the street behind Jonker Walk (walk towards Geographer Cafe, turn left into the alley, and then turn left again and you will see the place). I usually chill out at Geographer Cafe so even at midnight the last weekend it was safe for me to walk back alone. =)

The staff are friendly and helpful with providing information of places (good for first timers!)

The room itself is clean and well maintained. Simple amenities provided as well. The beds are one of the more comfortable ones that I enjoy sleeping in (really!). Only thing was that there were no double bed. Even both times I went alone and stayed only a night. Both the rooms I stayed in was 2 single beds. So it was kind of a challenge deciding how and which to sleep in. =P

All in all. A nice, well located place to stay in. And definitely will be staying there again when I go back next year! =D

The hotel is located within the melaka old town, the weekend night market is just a stone throw away. The reception staff is friendly and very helpful, the hotel provides a map with all information on what to do and where to eat, very handy. The rooms is beautifully designed, lovely bed. There are a lot of nice little cafe around the area, the baboon cafe beside the hotel serves wonderful burger.

We booked the hotel last minute and were lucky enough to get the last two available rooms, which were deluxe rooms. We were there to celebrate by husbands birthday with friends. We were very impressed with how quickly the hotel replied our our booking enquiries and when we arrived at the hotel a member of staff came out straight away to direct us to the car park which is at the back of the hotel. The hotel is stunning inside and is like a tardis it is so large, check in was quick with a lovely welcome drink and a cold towel. Our room was G4 and we loved the design and the birthday balloons on the bed was such a thoughtful touch. The breakfast is at the cafe which is straight across from the hotel, there was a good selection and my husband said the omelette served here was one of the best he has ever had. The only downside was you only get one keycard/card so when I came back before my husband he had trouble getting in to the hotel and had to wake me up to get into the room. We are looking forward to returning and this will be on our list to bring family and friends.

Me and my group of girlfriends stayed here in 2 separate rooms - one superior room and one superior family room. The superior family room we had was on the 2nd floor at the corner and was spacious and comfy. The superior room on the 2nd floor was along the corridor was noisier and we could hear people walking outside. As the floorboard was creaky, it was quite disturbing for light sleepers. However, overall we could sleep well. Location was fantastic as it's very near Jonker Street with shopping and famous local food. Wi-Fi signal in our room was very poor when we were there, and we had to use it in the lobby. Overall, this is a lovely boutique hotel and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose the corner rooms for less disturbance from other guests walking along the corridor.

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. It was a pleasant stay as the staff at reception is very polite and helpful.
During checked-in, they will serve you with the welcome drink and towel while they verifying the detail. One thing that really impressed me is that, they even serve a drink to my 3yo daughter and without ice. How thoughtful they are!
The entire hotel is super unique where you can easily take picture anywhere in the hotel. The security of the hotel also awesome. You need to have the access card to enter into the hotel even from the main entrance. They will not allow any walk-in guest during night time.
The location is super convenient. It is just walking distance to jonker street and you can get most of the thing you need and see in Malacca.
Breakfast is awesome especially the laksa! However, they didn't serve it everyday cause when I ask again on the other day, the lady said they didn't serve it everyday...
However, there are some minus point:
1) the family room a bit too small (2 Queen size bed)
2) the toilet door not able to close tightly (might only good for couples..)

Overall stay is pleasant!
