“Great Swimming Pool, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

The holiday inn definitely surpassed my expectations with a nice sized room, gorgeous swimming pool, decent spa, especially for the price we paid ($75 per night). Cannot be beat. With my IHG Platinum status, we also had lounge access, which saved us a lot of money on breakfast and late afternoon appetizers that basically became our dinner. Overall, definitely worth a visit if you are traveling in Melaka.

This was our 4th stay at the Holiday Inn Melaka, we also go for the Sea View with a view of the Golden Mosque in the background. The hotel has a Great Swimming Pool, Good Central Location, Spa, etc. The breakfast is nice also.

I would stay again if this hotel can build a bridege or walkway to the Mahkota Shopping center over the busy motorway.

Yes, that's right. It's the best in Melaka town. Although it's a 4-star hotel by rating, it has the best facilities/amenities and is very much better it's rival hotel. It's locality is good as it is on the fringes of the busy part of town, so traffic flow is better. However, the choice of food and beverage needs improvement although it has a good offering at this moment. The is an Italian restaurant called Sirocco Kitchen & Bar that offers excellent food and authentic Italian cuisines. A nyonya restaurant serving local delicacies would be a great addition and highly recommended as it shall make the dining experience even more enriching. The breakfast is good and there's plenty of choices to choose from. The service of the front desk staff is excellent and very friendly. Overall, it's the best hotel in town with the newest and well-kept facility in town.

The place is close to the major tourist area and shopping malls. It looks like relatively new. Good amenities, rooms are with double glazed windows and clean. Very good staff. Some problems with plumbing in the bathroom, which seems to be a problem for many Malaysian hotels. If not for that, I would give the highest rating to the hotel. Cheap buffet with variety of foods. However buffet menu is rather designed for Malaysian taste.

Stayed at the hotel 3 days 2 nights. Unfortunately the first night ruined most of the stay there. I checked in almost midnight so the front desk was prompted but may be less friendly. Was given a corner room which was bigger but the door would not lock. Call for assistance & they responded quite fast but the door problem could not be fixed the soonest. So they exchanged my room at my request to a room few doors down. The new room was a practically the same as the previous one but smaller in size, no rain shower head & got a connecting door. It was like a feel when you got a taste of better things but end up with a somewhat a good thing. The staff did try to made up by extending the check out time to 2 pm.

Room was good, view was better as it is facing the sea. There is a pool but didn't try it. I did want to go to the gym but the staff there may misunderstood me as she mentioned it was not free even for stayed in guest. Didn't bother to ask again after she had said that as she didn't really speak English nor Bahasa. Parking bay at the hotel was aplenty & securities seems to be on duty.

Location wise is good as it is near to a mall and other attractions like A Farmosa, St Paul's Hill & Taming Sari Revolving Tower. You just need to cross that big road to get across as there was no pedestrian bridge in sight. Didn't try the breakfast buffet there so can't comment on the food.

Room Tip: If you get the corner room, stay there no matter what. :)

Nice hotel not quite centrally located but only a short walk to the man central area once you learn how to cross (under) the busy road and also very near to two big shopping malls. There is a minibus that will drop you at and pick you up from the shopping malls or close to Jonker Walk, the pick up time is a bit unreliable. Hotel staff are helpful and friendly. Swimming pool is nice but can be busy in the mornings and evening. Breakfast is not bad but could be better - breakfast time ends at 10.30 which actually means they start clearing away from the food at 10.20 so if like to tun up for breakfast at the last minute you will be disappointed. Rooms are standard Holiday Inn style, the sae you get anywhere. I think a 'Straits View' room is worth paying extra for because the other side of the hotel has the busy road running alongside it.

Room Tip: Straits View

The hotel room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The buffet breakfast was good. Service was reasonably good despite the crowds. Location was a little far from the old town but we were happy to drive or even walk to old town. Good view of the sea. It is a pity that there is no beach access here though it was by the sea.
