2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

This was a very disappointment stay i ever had. The hotel looked reasonably ok from outside. Since the hotel has its own building, i expected it was much2 better than a motel type one. unfortunately, we were unhappy with the parking availability at the area, lack of breakfast choices during breakfast, not proper dining hall, dining tables. Room interior is so-so. even the room is quite spacey, but it needs a lot of improvement. new painting and decoration. sad sad sad...

This is my second time staying at prima hotel, this time the hotel is well equipped, the lift is working at least :). I stayed now at deluxe room, facing the jalan kee ann road. The hotel is very near to jonker street, for about 5-10mins walk along the river.

The breakfast can be improved, it is a very simple one, but hey you can't expect more from a budget hotel.

Parking can be a challenge, as in-house space is very limited. If it is full, you need to park the car by the road side, and need to get the parking coupon from 8am-6pm from the receptionist.

Room Tip: Choose deluxe room facing the road

We stayed 2 nights at Prima Hotel. The check in was pretty smooth. the room was as expected nothing fancy.. two single beds, a study table and chair, mirror, lampshades, the condition of the room and furniture was good and very clean. the view from the room was bad as it overlooked some dilapidated buildings... although the hotel address mentions that it's in Jonker street it is not. the hotel is about 10 minutes leisure walk to Jonker and the river side.. Overall not a bad experience..for 2 night stay.. we were mostly out.. therefor didn't mind.. later someone told us the hotel is built on a graveyard.. phew.. well we didn't experience anything spooky...

Do not stay in this hotel! They gave us a second floor room and our hotel room's window is not lock permanently as our parents room next door. Our room was ransacked ,all our handphones and cash were all gone!and till now I still have nightmares about it. We tried asking the hotel staff for help but they dont seem helpful and they do not even care. Maybe this happens all the time . Please ban this hotel!!

Good location, only about 100m to the nice river walk.
Room spacious but simple and having a balcony (that you almost can not use, since rooms facing south and it gets very hot).
Breakfast “buffet” is disgusting what you get offered and the way it is presented.
Coffe and tea probably only hot in the big container very early in the morning.

We booked this hotel for a short overnight stay in Melaka. The hotel offers free parking lots for visitors as well as breakfast. The rooms are basic equipped with AC and TV set (some pay TV channels available). The room is of adequate size and the beds are comfy.
The breakfast is basic, but filling (tuna sandwich and fried noodles). The service is helpful. Regarding the price level of other Melaka hotels this appears to be a good bargain. The city center is in walking distance.
