First the good: it's well located, being only a short walk from the historic centre and Chinatown, and next to two large malls, one of which has a good basement supermarket in Parksons, which is well handy for supplies, like cheap bottled water, crisps and other snacks. It also has a fantastic pool, which was quiet every time we used it, during the day or in the evening for a refreshing dip after a hot day visiting the sights in Melaka. The staff were really friendly and helpful, with check in/out a breeze too.
The room we had was a good size, clean and tidy but a bit tired. The breakfast buffet seemed a bit pricey, so we passed on that and got a basic cooked breakfast with drinks for two for 10 ringgit (total) which was fine.
