“Good for a short stop off”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The rate was reasonable, but not particularly good value for a budget hotel (about 300MYR). The rooms were very new and clean, but very sparsely equipped and simple. The hotel is in a newly developed area, so the location is quite far from central Melaka. There is a shuttle from the hotel to the central area, but it is still far better to drive. Free wi-fi and a simple breakfast is provided, which is nice. Overall a good stay for the night, but I wouldn't recommend staying more than 1 or 2 nights.

Overnight stay at Marvelux Hotel . It's basically a 3 star hotel built about a year ago in 2011.Had a bit of problem locating the hotel as my Garmin GPS device could not seem to find the coordinates published on hotel web sites. A good marker is the Bai Zhan restaurant nearby (it's a white sign on a white building !!!) - when u see it at a traffic light on yr left turn right and Marvelux is right in front about 150m away.

We booked a large family suite for 4 pax which was very spacious with two double beds and two LCD tv sets . Rooms were clean and bed was comfy. There was a nice large shower which was a godsend after a hot day in Jonker street.

No restaurants within 50m so until the new shophouses across the road are completed likely in mid 2013. Jonker street is only a 10 min drive away so I suggest your fill your tummies before heading back hotel.

Room came with excellent wifi and surprisingly good spread of buffet breakfast. Downside is no pool just a small gym . I would recommend it for a short stay for family with teens.

Overall it's quick good at the price of SGD90 per room. It's a bit far from the centre, but not a problem for me since I've been driving there. Not much to be expected for breakfast, but the variety should be enough for you. It's near to the seashore as well.

We stayed at the family suite. Mine is a family of 5, with children aged 4-11year old. The hotel is about a year old. The hotel room was clean, they provided free wifi, there were 3 cable channels on tv, in addition to their local channels, and I found a safe place to park in front of the hotel where the CCTV is located. Value for money.

Spacious.clean.2 king size beds. 2 TVs. Ideal for family. 10 minutes drive to town shopping and Jonkers street. Good value for money, when promotional rates offered. We got it at About RM 380 per night.

For the rate of this hotel, it is excellent value. Basic hotel but clean, good size, modern with LCD tv that comes with good clear channels, free wifi with good speed, bedroom slippers given as well as all amenities incl toothbrush set etc. No funny smell, sheets are crisps and clean and no stains anywhere since it is only 1 yr old.
Breakfast was basic with a few variety but no egg station. Free shuttle to jonker street / mahkota parade. If you are looking for luxury 5star, this ain't it. But if you are looking for a good 3.5 star hotel, this is an excellent choice. I would definitely come back again.

Very very simple room, without mini bar, iron and iron board, safety box.. no facility, less convenience to anywhere.. fnb outlet is okay.. parking also okay..

For the less expecting tourists is acceptable, if looking for extra, consider others which can offer better..
