My wife and I arrived on Valentine's Day. The hotel brochure and professional photos promised 1) elegantly furnished, 2) well-appointed spacious rooms with 3) modern facilities and a 4)spectacular view of Chinatown.
Here is the reality:
1) basic and very cheap furniture
2) small rooms shown to me after first complaint
3) charge for tea bag and sugar
4) One room faced garbage piles below window, the other room faced a slum.
The security chain was broken from an attempt to enter and not yet replaced.
We were so disappointed with the false promises and disgusted when told they had only recently remodelled the hotel - we did NOT stay.
Suggestion: You can find better accommodation at less than half this price in the neighborhood.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel altogether.

actually I had been using this hotel whenever I visit Malacca for many years, due to its value and location. My recent visit there is a bit disappointing, mainly due to following,
- no in room safe provided,
- charge RM5 for extra set of Lipton tea sachets and sugar,
- TV channels is pathetic.
- bed side lamp is broken but nobody notice.
- paid S$ 70 for abovementioned Deluxe room not worth it anymore, because there are now more hotel choices in Malacca compare to last time.
Breakfast varieties still didn't change after all these years, fried rice, fried noodles, toast, congee, don't expect too much. Ironically, we ate at one roti canai shop just down the road(right hand side of hotel) which serve quite good roti canai(or roti prata). Can go there for bf if tired of the hotel's bf.

Room Tip: rooms at the first floor is not accessible by lift, either walk up half floor. or walk down half flo...

had been staying here for 2 nights from 9 to 11th Jan, there are good and not-so-good thing:

The good thing:
Check-in and check out is swift
Staff is very friendly and helpful
The bathroom is very clean and modern looking:)
The building itself is easily seen even in dark nights
WIFI speed is good

The not-so-good thing:
Walls are not sound-proof, you can heard people in next room talking
It is not very near to Jonker street as it was stated, it took about 15-20mins walk and the path can be quite dark after 9:30pm.
Hair-dryer only provided upon requested.

We saw quite a number of hotels/home-stay offering at lower price along our way back from Jonker to hotel. If you're looking for something like bed & breakfast, there's a wide option that is below RM70 (we booked at about RM140/night). But if you're very particular in bathroom cleanliness and staff attentivity, it is actually worth the money (and the walk) :D

p/s: we found a place at the same side of the road as our hotel, less than 5mins walk, which is selling fantastic char-siew rice during lunch time. the customers there were mainly locals:)

Really impressed by Mimosa Hotel service especially their efficiency in doing check-in and check-out. Attentive staff that provide baby cot for us when they saw that we came with a baby. Very clean and well maintained room. Private parking with security guarded. 10mins walk to Jonker Street. Great experience overall.

Booked this hotel because saw they had a family room which was quite big and it was true. Upon reaching Melaka Sentral, do board Panaroma Bus 17.

Reaching there was quite a problem for someone who isn't familiar with Melaka. We board the bus and asked the bus driver if he could help us alight somewhere nearby Jalan Bunga Raya and he just said we could alight nearby Mahkota Parade. But apparently from Mahkota Parade to the hotel itself is like a 10-20 minutes walk. I can't really describe well the direction there but basically the hotel is more into the Chinatown area of Melaka.

The room environment was nice, not noisy. The staff were helpful and friendly, can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't had them. Overall I enjoyed my stay there :)

The distance from the hotel to Jonker Walk is a bit far but still walkable distance.

Was shock that there was no dinner menu as the kitchen closes at 3PM, thus, I could not order any food at night.

The staffs cleared the daily breakfast buffet on the dot, unlike other hotels will extend for another half and hour.

The room I stayed in was Executive suite, but the room was not as spacious as other executive rooms in other hotels. It lack of some furnitures like sofa and the safety deposit box was faulty.

The hotel staffs are quite helpful such as in giving directions.

Overall, the stay at this hotel is average.
