“For a budget hotel, it has fulfilled its function”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at La Boss over the weekend. The stay was pretty decent. As a budget hotel, it has fulfilled its function.

I had a room on the 5th floor and the room was quite huge for a budget hotel. It was clean and the bed was quite comfortable. Some of the issues which made my stay less than perfect were:

(1) no slippers;
(2) no toiletries or mug to use in the washroom;
(3) the toilet, although clean, had a strong sewer smell emanating from somewhere in the toilet. I did not sight any leakage or whatsoever though.

The disco noise was not as bad as I thought. Overall, I had a pretty good night rest.

The breakfast selection was nothing to shout about but whatever they served was quite decent (bearing in mind it is a budget hotel).

Finally, I have to commend the staff for having the good sense to separate certain tour group who was having breakfast from the rest of the guests which I guess was to maintain order.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The rooms are new and clean, location is OK but that's about it. WIFI was not working, remote control for TV missing and have to be ordered and the worst was the attitude of the staff. We ordered a taxi at 9am the night before because we had to catch a bus at the terminal. But when we got a bit shaky after it was still not there at 9.15am the receptionist just told "it's not my responsibility, I can't help it"... I would not stay there again.

We stayed in La Boss (Malacca) during the Hari Raya holiday.We had to pay RM2 dollars for the TV remote controller while the channels were really limited which made the money paid totally not worth it. Lastly, there was no fridge, which means after a hot day out in Jonker street, you dont get that cold icy drink in your room.

stayed for 2d/1n on 21-22/7 Late check in . Simple , clean & new hotel . Great rain shower . Clean room . Bed is a little bit too hard while bed sheet is a lil bit itchy after our slept for a night.
Only one staff while we check in ,in good manner . Met with a group of china's tourist & their sound can even heard when we in our room . adequate breakfast with little choice as it's budget.
The worst part is , during the night we can hear the night club/disco sound beeping in the room during the WHOLE night from the nearby shop. And guess the disco sound only stop @ 5am in the morning . Hope they should improve this . As i only slept for 3hrs after the disco sound stop. That's killing.

this definitely for budget boutique stay.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 112 and can heard the disco beeping sound so clear & loud. avoid it .

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

It was the international dragon boat festival last weekend, we have a hard time getting hotels all over melaka. Even smaller ones like Marvelux, Syaz Meridian have all shouted full house. Thank god for my cousin who reccomended this new hotel but it was nothing to shout about.

claims to be 550m away from the two main malls in Bandar Hilir Melaka, but seems to be its a stone throw of less than 200m that's the + side i guess. Lots of renovation going on there, once into the hotel reception, there wasn't even any air-conditon switched on from concierge to the aisles along your rooms and mind you i was stung my mozzies. Reception was fast extremely fast, within 5mins i was in my room. The downside was i got a key and only one key card, we have 4 travellers and air condition is not centralised and the key card acts as a main supply to electricity and we were facing the west sun and the room took 4hours to cool down despite air con running at 16degrees celsius but view was alright you get to see partial seaview. Ask for room 528 1 king and 1 super single, room was humongous for a 114SGD price tag.

Toilet facilities includes rain shower but it was extremely dirty when we walked in, water hose beside W.C was spoiled. No mini fridge but generous space. Location-wise full of massage parlors both sleazy and orthodox ones. Food choices limited, you need a walk towards the other end of the road facing holiday inn for both day and night. There's a bar call the ANT bar nearby with Live Pole dance performance and mind you try to park within hotel compound if you are driving, my cousin's boyfriend got a parking ticket parking at the opposite hotel when they came for breakfast at the Herbal pork rib soup stall next door.

Room Tip: Get Room 528 if you are ok with West Sun. Very good views i guess, see photos

Average hotel but clean, that's the only reason why we stayed here. Toilet needs more lighting. Breakfast is minimal. Plus point is few eateries around.
