“Great boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have always stayed in large hotels so did not know what to expect of a boutique hotel before we arrived. Read up the trip advisor reviews on this hotel, booked the rooms and am not disappointed at all. It suited to our needs as the hotel is conveniently located just outside the night market at Jonker Street. We arrived just as the market was being set up but parking was easily fixed as one of the guys at the front desk showed our driver how and where to park. Our numerous bags were delivered to our rooms without fuss. Staff very friendly and helpful. Love the rooms which were tastefully decorated with different themes. We offered to tip the young man at the end of our stay as we were so pleased with their assistance but he refused to accept. In the end we put the tip in one of their charity donation box. The hotel definitely made our holiday in Melaka more special and enjoyable. Do not be deterred by the noise from the stage. We found that to enhance our experience in Melaka. Further where our room is located we could hardly hear it and the music does stop at midnight.

Great job and we hope the service and quality continue to be of a high standard. Highly recommended.

We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the location and cleanliness of the place! There is no elevator, so be prepared for the stairs, but other than that, I would highly recommend this place. The staff were great, helpful and accommodating!

Room Tip: I would recommend a lower floor if you have heavy luggage.

The staff were friendly and extremely efficient. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The bathrooms are modern and well equipped. The rooms are tastefully decorated with a touch of the old and new. Location is great - at the archway to Jonkers street so you will never be without good food (refreshing even for Malaysian tastebuds) and interesting shops (antiques galore). The entire ambience of the area is steeped in tradition so you will not be disappointed staying here.

Our midweek stay was a very pleasant one, the staff were very helpful, and the room (101) was really nice, big, with a large bed, clean bathroom, and full of original features. We enjoyed our stay. It has to be said that there can be some noise from the room above, but this is down to inconsiderate people, not really the hotels fault, but they will sort the situation out if need be. Melaka is a nice place, vibrant, has some great food options, and everything is in walkable distance. Two days here is enough though.

Amy and Kahy were especially helpful and welcoming. There is no elevator, but staff carry your bags up. Kahy walked us down the street to a lunch place he recommended. We were on the second floor in the back and it was quiet. We liked it because it is right in the midst of china town and very convenient. Our plane left at midnight and the hotel was willing to let us stay until 8 pm. for 60% of the rate, which was very nice, so we could shower after a hot day before getting on the plane. We had a problem with the airline and they called the company for us. No breakfast, but great dim sum place on same street. room was very large. tub and shower.

Room Tip: Get one on the back, I'm told.

Booked this hotel through agoda.com. Checked in late evening to this hotel after our Kuala Lumpur trip. Had difficulty looking for parking as there were night market blocking the entrance to the hotel. We were tired after shopping and drive down from KL and what we need is quickly check in and have a nice rest to continue our journey next day.
After check in, we need to climb the narrow and a bit steep staircase to our room. Room has a nice touch and this is the reason we book this hotel. However, was disappointed as there was stain on the bed sheet. This should not happen for the price we paid. It's not a budget hotel and the management should be concern on the cleanliness.
We were tired and when we want to hv a nice sleep, the noise from the karaoke in front of the stage was disturbing.

I and my family were extreamly satisfied with your good service which provided to us.We were happy to stay in your hotel and thanks to all the staff.But I personally want to thanks Louis because he is really a helpful guy.My wife were suffering with gastric the night when we checked in,as we knew that along Jonker Walk there will be no farmacy.I contacted Louis and asked him where is the nearest farmacy,but he offered me to help me on this matter. I and my wife were so touch when he said that to us.Around half an hour time, he bought the medicine back to us.What a wonderful service from him.
I surely will recommend all my friends and relatives to stay in your hotel when they visit to Malacca, and for sure I will re-visit your hotel for the next time. =)
I rated all your services as 5 stars.

Room Tip: Back rooms are quieter....
