The Mahkota Melaka is a landmark hotel way passed its prime. And it shows as you make your way to your room. The single room key (not access card) for a 3 bedrooms units (3 families), the malfunctioned bathroom door lock, the faulty running tap, and malfunctioned air-con (1 of 3 rooms, found out late at night) were to contribute to a weekend break being compromised. The only saving grace was the relatively convenient location. The Mahkota Parade shopping mall is just opposite the hotel, and a few upcoming malls. For the famous Jonker Street, it is a good 20min walking distance under the Malaccan blistering sun. A Rm12 taxi ride (seats 8), hired from the hotel lobby is a better option.
The only few saving grace would be the view of the Straits of Malacca (from some blocks only). The shocker was the mini "queen" size bed. I wonder where does this queen come from ? The room was equally claustrophohic. I think the designer of the hotel realised the small room size and match with an equally small bed. The unit also have few power points for charging purpose, for instance, I had to pull the table lamp plug so that I can charge my handphone. The maintenance & housekeeping crews were prompt in responding to our complaint on the faulty aircon and forever running tap. Kudos for this. The hotel breakfast were nothing unusual and basic. I would not go back to this hotel, ever, if given a choice.
