“Basic, Cheap and efficient!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Stayed at this hotel for just one night, on my trip to Melacca... Very very basic, and gives you exactly what they promise. Clean room, a good bed and a nice bathroom with running hot water. 2 bottles of water come in free as part of the room price.
A standard 2 star property, situated in a brilliant location... just a 5 minute ride to the famous Jonker street, or a 10-15 minute walk, depending on how fast you walk ;)
The hotel does not have a restaurant, but there's a KFC open 24X7 just across the street (you can see it from the reception). Also, a number of street food options also in the same alley. Also, no swimming pool in the hotel...
Overall, a very good option for the budget traveller, or for an unplanned one (like us!)

Chose this in a rush.its a long way from the unesco old town .taxi ride seems to be 15 rm for most journeys.it seems more like a cheap business hotel .staff are helpful but the place is a little shabby but for the money represents reasonable value as our room had ac tv and en suite.hotel is right on a busy road and there does appear to be some bag theft in the area so taxis better at night.If you want low budget but with some inconvenience ...fine.if your main plan is to visit the old town taxi fares will soon mount up so would suggest you get closer to honkers road.

Had gone to Melaka & stayed at Selectstar for my birthday weekend in Dec 2012. Had booked this hotel at the last minute.

Rooms are spacious & clean. Bathroom is clean, decent sized, with good, non-leaky fixtures. Beds are very comfortable. But room came without breakfast. Staff is helpful, comfortable with English & lent us umbrellas for our 2-days there without any fuss.

The hotel is behind the Jonker street / old city & about a 10-minute walk from the Heritage area. The walk from the hotel to the Heritage area is very nice as it passes through an old Hindu settlement & you can explore a few very pretty, non-touristy temples as you walk. The area is quiet as well so that you can sleep in peace.

For food - there is a supermarket right opposite the hotel. Plenty of local eateries around the hotel as well. My favourite - the vegetarian Chinese restaurant right below the hotel which serves finger-smackingly-good food!!

I would stay here again without a hitch.

Its too late to continue our journey back to KL. BY USING TRIPADVISOR, we found this hotel within 5 minutes. 

Since this is an unplanned stay we keep our budget low. Our expectation towards the hotel as well.

To our surprise,  Selectstar hotel- as many recommended in this site- is a nice and clean place to stay in. 

Staff are very polite. 
Registration is simple and fast.
Car can park outside hotel. 

Highly recommend for low budget travelers and for those who just look for a nite stay. 

The hotel truly knows what business they are into and serving the right customers right.

The hotel is quite rundown in the room. Everything looks old to me in the room. There is a strong carpet smell in the room. My wife and daughter after sleeping complaint whole body itchy. Not a good hotel to stay.

When i went to Selectstar hotel, the lobby's environment is given me very comfortable and the service very excellent. When i went to the room, the atmosphere very comfortable, and the washroom is very clean,and didn't feel smelly. The surrounding of the environment of room very fresh and ventilation. So next trip i go to melaka i will choose Selectstar hotel as my first choice. Thanks
