What a lovely little boutique hotel. You may get a little oh oh when you first see the front of the building but when the lobby doors open, a lovely charming hotel. The reception, the dining room and the bar are at the old mansion. The front office staff were always smiling and helpful. The rooms are in the new wing behind and very pretty. We were so happy when we first stepped into our room we just smiled. From black and white bathroom tiles to lion claws holding up the bath, was inviting. Everything was wonderful and with modern facilities in the room. The dining room was lovely, very pretty with nice linen like in the grand old houses of old Malacca. The chef made us a special peranakan dinner because I wanted something local. Now that was what I call service. They have a little bit of nostalgia all over the lobby. Nuts, biscuits and preserved assortments, things that kids grew up snacking during the 50s & 60s presumably.
A bit of a walk to Jonker Street and to the Hardrock cafe. Not far to walk to take a cruise by the river. No shopping malls near this place, you have to take a taxi. So if you like being near the mall, this is not the place for you. Also this is not a place for little children. This is a place if you appreciate the quiet old peranakan charm.
Service was top rate. They were all so nice, always had a smile. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
