“Perfect Place to Prepare for a Wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2011

My uncle arranged for us to stay here to prepare for our Chinese wedding, held in Malacca after our Australian wedding. The staff did a wonderful job, arranging everything via e-mail. In addition, we had very romantic gestures added to our room - double happiness stickers on the door and above the bed, rose petals, flowers, a bottle of wine and a full bath complete with rose petals! The hotel staff also arranged the trishaw driver to take my (now) husband to my grandma's house in preparation for our tea ceremony. Nothing was too difficult for the staff, who also pointed out the next morning that our little ceremony had made the back page of the Chinese newspaper! Fantastic location, particularly for those coming to Malacca to check out the touristy things - Jonker Walk is full of history, close to temples, and close to the Peranakan Museum. The hotel is safe, with the desk staffed at night and a key drop facility available if you don't want to take your key out with you on the town. Beautifully furnished with incredibly comfortable beds, and an air con to cool even the hottest people down.

Location is fantastic, right in the middle of the historical chinatown, close to most of the sights you might want to see in Melaka. Rooms are very spacious, with a huge and comfortable bed. The stylish design really classifies it as a boutique hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed just one night but really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed at the Jonkers for two nights and had a great time. The location is right in the area where the Chinese market is set up and it bustles with life. Walk out of the door and there are so many cafes and restaurants with a couple of minutes walk that you are spoilt for choice. The hotel is quiet and traditional and feels family run. If you want an upmarket boutique hotel as a base to explore Malacca and being right in the Chinese sector then this is it. And pretty good value for money too. Nice rooms all very well decorated and excellent bathrooms.

A very convenient place to stay: do not be worried about the hilarious karaoke stage at Jonker Walk, which shuts down at 11. Good and convenient car park, which is a blessing. Rooms large and light, though a little sparsely furnished. Bathroom fine. But not quite boutique: toiletries are a little basic; no teaspoons with the cups and sachets of instant coffee (and why provide horrible instant coffee when the Aik Cheong coffee roaster, the very best of Malaysian coffee, is just across the street ?), no bathrobe (indeed, no wardrobe), that sort of thing. None of this matters at all, but for the sake of having saved a couple of ringgit it slightly takes the edge off the the package, and makes it seem fine rather than lovely.

We spent four nights at Jonker Hotel. The room was very spacious with lots of old world charm. The staff were very helpful and gave good advice (places to go, organising transport etc). It was tremendous to be in the heart of the night market and so close to all the tourist attractions.

Stayed here for 2 nights. This place has all the basic amenities, polite and friendly hotel staff and is conveniently located at the end of Jonker St (night market on weekends) if that is your main hang out area. However, we were disappointed and disturbed by a few things:-
1) the ants infested in our room (room 106)
2) the bed was uncomfortable (ESP the pillows) and there is an awful creaking sound with every slight movement on the bed
3) the noise of EVERY footstep from upstairs (we were on the first floor and the footsteps on the teak flooring were louder and more annoying than the karaoke at the open stage downstairs).
You might be more comfortable staying at a cheaper hotel than this.
