“Good and LIKE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

The room is clean, simple, comfortable, with all the basic things. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is good, walking distance to historical places, Jonker street and also shopping malls. The hotel has its private parking lots. It's good to park car in the inn and walk around.

We booked the Family suite with the Best Available Rate from the website (discounted from rack rate by 39%) and added the extra bed for RM40.

The confirmation and clarification emails were replied to promptly, and the phone calls answered politely.

The approach to the hotel appeared simple, but unless I was looking over my shoulder and watching for it, I would have missed it on the bend towards the Equatorial. We had to make a huge loop to get back to it.

The Family Suite was adequate on its own but very tight with the extra bed.

Cleanliness was fine, and the staff were unusually helpful, patient and friendly! The location was outstanding, but yes, the KTV Karaoke lounge next door threw a heavy beat into the complex.

Room Tip: Make sure you add your preferences ahead of time in the comments section. The staff are extremely po...

Have been staying in this hotel since 2009. When ever there is any business trips to Malacca, this would be the hotel to stay. Reasonable price and since I only need a place to stay for the night, there are no complains regarding the hotel and the service. The thing I like most is the jockey parking service, and is walking distance to Dataran Pahlawan and Mahkota Parade as well.

there are 6 of us are elderly who also patients to Mahkota Hospital. the hotel near to hospital, just need 5 minutes on walk. and location full of food also near to Hatten Square and Dataran Pahlawan Mall both only 3 minutes walks. they had special price for medical check-up

we are living in other building (there are 2 buildings of Fenix Inn) only separate with Starbucks coffee shop. our building doesnt have a good lobby like the main building but its clean and comfort also Fenix inn provide coffee break from morning till 5pm. this is good after a long medical check-up the elderly can drink a hot sweet coffee for free.

the only Fenix miss is ELEVATOR, I quiet felt sorry for the elderly for climbing up the stairs (not so high around 20 steps each floor, if you are young its not a big deal). If Fenix provide the elevator then it will be PERFECT hotel for me

Room Tip: choose first floor (ground floor had NO rooms) for elderly and the stairs is not so big, gotta hold...

I stayed at deluxe room for one night. Friendly staff, hotel is clean & located at strategy location. Will stay in the hotel on my next visit. Highly recommended for budget travelers and family where the hotel is for rest purposes.

I have been a repeated customer for the past few years.
Hotel price is about 50% cheaper that the 4-5 star hotels across the road.
Pahlawan Megamall and Mahkota Mall are within walking distance.
Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.
Can book hotel van to nearby attractions, but sometimes van not available.

Room Tip: If you are booking room for 3-4 persons, book family room which is bigger than normal room. The fa...
