“Decent and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Stayed 1 night in Marvelux Hotel. Easy to find this hotel as there aren't many developments in that area. A little too far to walk to Jonker Street but the hotel has shuttle services to and fro (i think at $5). Quiet part of town. Parking was along the perimeter of the hotel and seemed safe with a Security Guard around. Hotel reception staff was friendly and helpful.

Clean and decent sized room. The only issues are the bathroom door and shower glass door might risk knocking into each other, and the pillows were too soft. Other than this, overall was a good stay. Will be back.

Stayed in Marvelux during Mar Good Friday 2013. I book family suite for 4 adults. The place 10 to 15 min drive to bandar hilir and the hotel do provided shutter bus to bander hilir. The place is new and nice, I like it the place. The staff very nice and very friendly. I dont like the menu of the breakfast it on limited. The secuirty guard also very friendly. They recommended us to SeaFarer for seafood dinner, it very nice and it near to the sea. My kids love the foods. I think the Hotel need to improved in food or restaurant. try to have Spa and travel guide.

Room Tip: family suite for 4 adults value for money

This is my 2nd time staying in this hotel. I still love it even though I found that 1 or 2 items in the room are not as good as they've used to be. The room is spacious with comfortable beds and cable LCD TV. Perfect for tourists who opt for a lower cost hotel with some level of comfort. I really love the rain shower head in the bath room, it makes me never want to get out from shower. Since this hotel is located a little further from the tourists spot, transportation arrangement is required. Parking is along the road side outside the hotel but there are hotel guards so I think it's safe to park there. At least we didn't have any problem parking outside for the 2 visits. This hotel has now became my first choice whenever I visit Melaka.

The only thing I don't really like is their limited breakfast choice. The breakfast menu was exactly the same as my first visit which was 8 months earlier.

First impression of the hotel was that it looks very new.
Check-in was a breeze as we had made prior bookings. I was happy to be able to check-in slightly earlier than the actual stated check-in time, probably due to the room availability.
Parking is an open car park surrounding the hotel, but a security guard was stationed and making rounds.

Room was clean and just like the pictures on the website. Although nothing special, it was not too cramped either. Air-conditioning was fairly okay, and the bathroom had all basic amenities and an adequate amount of towels too. Rain shower water pressure was good and much appreciated. Heavy curtains successfully blocked out the morning sunshine. Everything was clean and adequate. Good facilities, and an ironing room nearby.

Breakfast was very basic, nasi lemak with condiments, congee, fried mee and toast, with some cake, tea/coffee and one type of juice. Cafe was clean and roomy, and the ala-carte menu (after breakfast hours) had some reasonably priced dishes, although we were unable to try them.

The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of Jonker street, which might be an issue for those without own transportation. However, I was informed that they do have shuttle services to the city. By car it is only a few minutes away.

Overall, I was satisfied with my stay here and would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs affordable no-frills accommodation.

Stayed in Marvelux during the Christmas in 2011. I don't know the actual cost of the hotel rates as we had it free thanks to Maybank Credit card. Room was big (it was a triple room if I'm not wront) with hugh balcony and LCD TV. It was hard to locate the hotel at first as we kept missing the turn but subsequently found it. I will only recommend this hotel if you are driving as it was quite a distance to makota area. Breakfast was just alright, nothing to shout about. Staff were nice and make up service was done well. I don't mind staying there again.

i am from melaka and i stayed at this hotel as my house was under renovation. the prices for rooms are really reasonable compared to other hotels in melaka. melaka has become such a famous touristy spot that hotels are blooming everywhere.
marvelux rooms although not fantastic are superbly clean and fresh. amenities are ample and a good value for the price you pay.
i got to know ms evon of reservations who is really kind and makes your stay extra special. breakfast is also good and ample to fill the stomach.
all in all a good value for convenient location which is accessible to all major attractions

Nice hotel with nice staff. won't forget their hospitality... check in and out was fast and easy. although was quite far from central malacca but wasn't really a problem since we travel by our own transport. stay in their family room with 2 adults, 3 kids (2-7 years old) and one baby. the room was cozy..... my kids love staying in the room. breakfast was good and staff service was excellent. hope to stay there again. thank you marvelux for the nice and efficient service.
