“Clean rooms, centrally located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We were a little skeptical when we made our trip to Malacca because communication with staff was purely through email and there was no reply to my request to confirm the meet up. However, when we reached the place and contacted the staff, they were expecting us and were fast to reach the apartment in 5 min time.

The apartment is like a shophouse, beside Famous Inn. It is good for families with elderly and children who wished to stay together instead of separate hotel rooms, but they should have a car to move around. Parking lots were available just below the apartment, and across was a 24 hour prata coffeeshop, so we felt safer.

Since we stayed for only 2 nights, there was no cleaning provided (the staff said house cleaning would be every 2 days). The only downside was in both toilets, there was no shower curtains.

Distance from the apartment to Dataran Pahlawan and Hatten Square was just 5 minutes drive away. If you walk, you can reach there in 15-20 minutes. Along the stretch of road, there are convenience stores, restaurants, coffeeshops and confectionary shops. Driving to jonker street was also quite near from apartment, about 15-20 min drive depending on the traffic conditions, though you need to drive across the bridge.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this place, and would love to stay here when we visit Malacca again.

Room Tip: This place is good if you have a car to move around in malacca. If you do not drive, then it's b...

Pictures of the interior shown in the website looked exactly same when checked in, liked it have newly renovated. Exterior look liked normal shop houses but didn't expect to have this service apartment there. Booked 3 units of family room with 3 bedrooms for group of 18pax. Rooms are clean and tidy, good beds except one of the room in all 2 units are provided towel blanket where the rest are provided with quilt blanket. Towel blanket can not keep me warm in air conditioning room in middle of night and got to wake up raise up the air con temp.
Toilets are clean and provided with towels, shampoo & shower gel. Nearby there are many nonya restaurants and there one coffee shop selling popular fish ball noodle. Have to do some walking to Jonker Street.

This is the second time we choose the same appartment.

The location is quite close and within walking distance to the city centre.

The management is kind to provide a discount for repeat customer.

The staff is friendly and helpful and even offer to assist in the payment of parking fine.

The appartment is cozy and comfortable.

Shower and hot water is great.

Room Tip: There are no swimming pool and fitness centre.

The rooms are clean and tidy with shower gel, shampoo and towels provided but the noise pollution from the main road disturbs my sleep throughout the night. Mosquitoes and the pillows makes it a little uncomfortable.

After staying with my family of 5, the following week to Malacca, I chose the same apartment again. It is the most coziest apartment I have stayed with family.
Water output for showering is superb
Exterior of apartment looks terrible and you would not want to step in but the moment you step into the apartment, our outlook completely changed.
Only problem : a flight of stairs to climb up and if your luggages are big and heavy, then it will be a hassle and a no joke climb.
Importantly the apartment is so clean and they provide clean bed sheets and towels.
I would recommend family to stay here.
