“Great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Recommend this hotel for travelers as it is near main tourist attractions and shopping locations.
It is just next to the famous jonker walk and also the shopping malls. Everything is within walking distance.

The hotel amenities and facilities are clean and well-maintained. The staff is friendly too. We are pleasant to find that the hotel offers rooftop BBQ every Thursday and also has a jacuzzi at the rooftop which overlooks scenic view of Melaka.

The only thing is we find the bed too hard and a little small. For those who drive, parking lots for hotel visitors are limited. You may have to purchase parking coupons to park at public lots. The area may still be a little noisy at around midnight due to the location. But it is acceptable for me.

The hotel is very near the jonker street which is in the walkin distance... Next to the police station so I suppose the safety is good??? The room is quite spacious... The bathroom is very nice... It's just that the air conditioner not really cold... I stay at a quadro room which is not really cold enough...

This is my 1st time visiting Melaka. I found the fact that public transportation is quite expensive and could become problem. Choosing right hotel with right location in Melaka is a key.
Except if you rent a car, the only transportation is served by taxi or bus or rickshaw (with limited access and high tourist price).

From Melaka sentral bus station, i use taxi and pay RM 20/way to Aldy Stadhuys since I can't find the Melaka Panorama free bus service. Some said that the bus is not operate anymore but some said it is still operate but not under panorama melaka. Because i saw all panorama melaka bus is for commercial. Beside taxi, you can follow bus panorama melaka no. 17
and stop right at stadhuys and just walk for less than 50 meters to hotel. I saw many tourist wait for this bus number.

To my surprise, it is really in the middle of any major tourist locations.
Everything is in walkable distance ( except going to Melaka mosque straits ).
To Stadhuys, St. Paul, Christ church, jonker street, a fomosa, dataran pahlawan, shopping parade, etc is in walk distance. you don't need to hail a cab for sightseeing.
Even, the melaka river taxi pier is also near, just couple metres from hotel.
To Jonker street is so easy, just walk to river, cross the bridge and you entering Jonker street.
Bus stop is also in near the river. trust me, the location is unbeatable.
Tips : ask tourist map from reception since at Melaka Sentral bus station, i didn't see any free brochures or map available. It is really crowded there, maybe because it's hari Raya.

The fact that i like is, even it is in very central location, when i am in the room, i still can sleep very well and not disturb with any noise. After exploring Jonker area, I founded the other fact also that some famous hotels at Jonker street are really in centre of crowd since the market will just closed about 2-3 AM most every night. Except, you are looking for such chinatown ambience then it is okay to stay there.

reception is always nice and friendly, also ms ain. thanks to her because she help me lots in booking a taxi.
the only concern is the building is old (an history building) so the hotel is not as chic as any modern minimalist hotel. but it is kept clean and i have no problem with that. Beside, that's the reason why visit Melaka, right ? to feel ambience of history.
The hotel still using carpet and the bed mattress is rather hard, but still, I can sleep very well.

breakfast is served by set menu ( option of nasi lemak or toast/bread ) plus a glass of coffee or tea. At night, there's not much you can do except walking at Jonker street, shopping at parade, or sit at the bar / restaurant. Aldy hotel provide the quite comfortable sitting area in Bamboo Restaurant. They provide live music ( solo keyboard ) performance each night plus big LCD screen to watch soccer game.

Overall, i'm glad that i choose Aldy Stadhuys to stay with since i'm for me as 3 stars hotel, their location is perfect. value for money.
However, if you want a 4 or 5 stars services, you can choose Casa Del Rio hotel ( right across from melaka river pier ) or other 5 stars hotel which located farther than Aldy (near shopping parade.

If you don't mind
1. hard rock mattres
2. noisy air con,
3. limited car park,
4. teeny- tiny room this hotel is alright then.
Because this hotel is in the heart of heritage , historical centre . All are within walking distance, you could save a lot of time. Unfortunately Jonker street was rather quite and a lot of shops was closed.

Room Tip: I don't know, its only 4 story probably not much options.

Aldy's is well placed for all the attractions of Melaka - the historic buildings or the tourist tat, take your pick.
The rooms were basic but slightly dingy and the aircon barely adequate to cope with the hot night.
Breakfast was good and of the evening meals, laksa was the best. The Irish type stout was very good.

This hotel was adequate, and as it was cheap that was okay. Lacked a personal touch, but was functional. Did appreciate the black out curtains, which helped a good nights sleep. Bathroom was not over clean,towels were slightly grubby. Safe was practically on the floor.
It was a shame the much advertised hot tub and bar on theroof was not functioning.But Melaka is fun and you can't have everything!
