“Sunflower Hotel - Is it bright in here?!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

Superb value for money hotel. Well, certainly is right now when it's new. Nice concept of the shared bathroom, which is something certainly new to me in budget hotels. That most probably is the reason behind it's affordable price. Internet is normal and acceptable. One really plus point is the carpark lots right in front of the hotel,... FOC, 24/7, something that I must highlight since public car parks in Malacca is the only place in Malaysia where its also in operation on weekends and on Public Holidays!! Yes, that's 365 days per year.

Rooms are tight but also have a very pleasant, clean design which has simplicity at its best. Air conditioned of course not to mention also, have LCD tv's...Yeah, LCD tv's, branded one's, mind you. Quality sure is in place for the hotel as a whole. Staff are not too knowledgable about Malacca as a tourist destination but very, very friendly and always willing to help nonetheless. There's a meeting room too although I'm not sure of the rates or how is it like but as far as looks are concern, it's certainly above budget standard.

Nice, cheerful hotel that is easy to spot along the main road. Chinese restaurant/coffee shop just beside and also lots of other amenities such as sundry shop, clinic, post office...etc. \Well, it's just fantastic. I would give it 8.5/10 overall.

Oh yeah, they also have houses for accomodation (One Residence Stay) at the back of the housing area. Quite some walking distance from the hotel, certainly not adviceble to walk under the scorching sun, but once you're there in the house.....ulalaaa....
SHEER HEAVEN!!!!!!! I will not go deep into this one though but just a quick one instead. I would give it 9.5/10.

Certainly the best long term stay house concept that I've come accross in Malaysia. Wins hands down. U just gotta see it to believe. Enough said.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2010

This was the first time I visit to Sunflower Hotel. This is because the whole Melaka hotels were full due to SUKMA. Hence going round the town and I found out a new hotel called Sunflower Hotel. At first I was impressed by the cleanliness and friendly staffs service. I do not expect much because it is just budget hotel, but really impressed after I stayed for 2 nights.

Clean room with 5 star facilities like: Toshiba branded 32'' LCD TV with astro channels. Free wifi service, although not so fast, but enough for surfing facebook and youtube and emailing stuff.

They also provide shared bathroom rooms which is not my choice but a good choice for backpackers and students because the facilities are same, just the bathroom is outside the rooms, with cheaper price.

It was a business trip on a long weekend :-
1) Walked-in to Sunflower reason being, most hotels in Malacca were fully booked.
2) Pleasant check-in process - Joycelyn, Trisha & Adi at the front desk was very polite &
courteous.
2) My room which was the twin sharing - not too bad.
3) It was a shared bathroom, which I'm not very happy about! However, as I entered the
bathroom, it was very very clean and the water pressure was also good.
4) Even the housekeeping staffs greeted me...Impressive for a budget hotel.
5) The whole hotel is WiFi enabled...which was very convenient for myself
6) To town - 5 minutes drive only - Convenient
Overall...it was a pleasant stay with Sunflower Hotel. Recommended to all walks of life!
Backpackers & Business travellers - Highly recommended to try out this hotel. They also have homestay units.

Good job,
Business Traveller.
