About 30 colleagues of mine and I stayed at this hotel for 1 night and 2 days to attend our organisation's retreat. As some of our senior staff came down from Kuala Lumpur, the nation's capital, the purpose of our short stay was just right as our hotel package was an excellent one. The check-in was effortless as the hotel staff took great care to make us comfortable. We have the advantage of two seminar rooms provided by the hotel management for our deliberations. For us as a group it was indeed a pleasant stay.
I stayed in a junior suite which was clean and no complaints here. Good airconditioning and shower but no bathtub. However, while the food spread in the main restaurant, both at breakfast and dinner, was quite good I find the quality needs some upgrading. Two of the staff in the restaurant were however excellent and took great care that our group enjoyed the food. On the first day, I went to the gym where I found the exercise gadgets are relatively old. Perhaps the management can spare some budget to upgrade the whole place and ambiance.
The hotel is also part of the Mahkota Apartment which is at a distance from the main lobby. I observe that there are many guests there with their families and small children. However, they are seperated by having their own restaurants and a swimming pool. Quite useful if you like to bring your own family members but can be quite noisy there.
If one likes sightseeing, Melaka is a fantastic place to visit as this is an historical city which was colonised for more than 400 years in succession by the Portugese (beginning in 1511), the Dutch and lastly the British. Thus one can visit historical places such as A Famosa, St Paul's Hill, Stadhuys, and old churches built during those days. Some of them are within walking distance from the Mahkota Hotel. One is also accessible to two shopping malls nearby.
