The location is great, 2 minutes walk to all the main sites and restaurant you will go to, fort, jonker walk. Yet located in a quiet street, quiet enough you will not hear the night music buzzing. There is nothing fantastic about the hotel itself or its service. The owner is a no nonsense guy, will not likely go out of his way to help you in a sticky situation. Clean enough beds for those who are not too picky. Triple room and family rooms available is great for the budget minded. Most rooms are not carpeted, I like that because its less dusty. Some don't like that as it can be more noisy. Good value for the location. The 4* rating is purely for the Location, Value and Sleep quality NOT for the service. I stayed here every time I am in Melaka for 15 years. No complain.
