4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

After reading the previous reviews, I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel was quite good.
Although the furniture and fittings in the room was old, it was clean.
My room faced the sea where a massive land reclaimation was ongoing.
The buffet meals served were good and the staff, friendly.
I would rate the hotel as above average.

Room Tip: Choose sea-facing rooms

The hotel staff is just efficient enough and the food just nice for me. Enjoyed the meals at there. The staffs have the passion to provide the quality service the guest. You guys should try to put Mahkota Hotel as your top choice if you travel to Malacca. The apartment concept just too nice for a family trip.

I stayed at this hotel from 11-13 September 2013.
Our official function was from 11-12 September. Stayed at Block 7 which was a twin sharing apartment (for 2 pax only).
I extended for an extra night on the 13th - this time was a two room suite ( for 4 pax) at Block 6 cos family members came for a holiday enroute to Kuantan.
There is a live band at the lobby, performances by a 3 Piece Filipino Band.
The room I stayed at Block 7 was facing a reclaimed area, so the view was not good.
At Block 6, our room was facing the pool - good and pleasant view. The pool is good.
The breakfast was decent, quite a number of choices.
I noticed that there were 6 tourist buses parked outside the hotel. This hotel seems to be popular.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Has a homely ambience in the room.
Mahkota Parade Shopping Mall is just across the road. Be careful when crossing the road.
Will stay again if I have the budget.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing inwards towards swimming pool. Outward view will face reclamation are which is...

Recent stay in this hotel was my third. Second on business trip as my maiden trip was for leisure. All in all, this hotel suitable for every sort of trip. Both hotel and apartments are well appointed and maintained. Check in/out was pleasurable experience with attentive, helpful and informative staff. Buffet breakfast spread is fair. The highlight of this hotel is the excellent location which is short walking distance to historical sites and cultural enclave in Banda Hilir. Malls and restaurants are nearby too. Comprehensive recreational facilities such as gym, tennis, table tennis, squash, mini golf, indoor games, playground for kids as well as swimming pool. Overall experience is way above satisfactory.

This is the second time I stayed at mahkota hotel after more than 10yrs. I booked a 2-bedroom apartment for my family of 5. It comes with a living room and a kitchen. Of course the interior is now more dated and not so appealing. Still I would prefer staying in an apartment instead of just rooms if I am with my family. The size of the apartment is quite big. I got a room which overlooks the sea. Saw a reclaimed land just next to the hotel. Do not know what will be built on it in future. Thinking that the sea view might be blocked if high rise buildings are going to be built on the empty piece of land. The apartment is quite clean. The aircon in the living room wasn't cold enough although the rooms were. The entire hotel has a resort feel as the compound is big with at least 5 blocks of apartments. There are lots of parking space so it is ideal for those who drives. Location wise, it is quite alright. It is next to Mahkota shopping mall. Most of the tourist attraction places are nearby. Jonker street is about 15 mins walk away. On the whole, it is quite value for money. Of course there are other options if one wants to stay in a newer hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor with a sea view.

Stayed with husband for 1 night for a one bed room apartment.
The room condition was bad. The whole apartment was with a kind of weird smell, we had to open all windows and doors to ventilate the air.
The toilet was bad too, the bathtub was leaking somewhere and after each shower the toilet would be flooded.
Even the only aircon in the apartment (which is in the bedroom) was dirty and the air filter was observed to be black!
Overall impression, it's a dirty hotel but if you can bear with it (like me and my husband), you would have a not-so-bad stay.
The location is great, near to every location that we wanted to visit - The Mahkota Shopping Mall, the Christ Church Melaka, etc etc.
