Right beside melaka river will you find this splendid hotel named Casa Del Rio. Surely fulfilling my expectations. I adore the Portuguese inspired interior and exterior, exquisite rooms with huge bathroom equipped with rainshowers, rooftop swimming pool with a small bar, a fully functional fitness gym, a restaurant bar right beside Melaka river. Only downside is how sub par their... More

I loved my stay here. The architecture recalls the era of Melaka as a Portuguese trading colony. The hotel is right on the river with walking paths along both sides. It is minutes away from the historic sights. The staff was friendly and helpful in planning and in making me comfortable. The room was large, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The... More

Casa del Rio was our first stop on a 2 week adventure in Malaysia. We arrived after our 13 hour flight and 2 hour car journey from KL feeling very exhausted but were greeted by lovely staff who made us feel very welcome with cool towels and a gorgeous lime and ginger sorbet.

Great location within walking distance to Jonker Street, Heeren Street, Melaka River and Red Square. Lots of local eateries around the hotel. You will be spoiled for choice! Ample and secure parking in the basement. Cold towel and welcome sorbet at check-in. Our river facing room was very spacious, well appointed and clean. Loved the rubber duckie in the bathroom!...

We really had a great time in Melaka because of Casa Del Rio. Very strategic location. We parked our car since the day we arrived and only drove it back when we checked out.(even they did clean the guest's car windscreen and windows..) Just need to walk to the nearby attractions such as the Jonker Street, A'Famosa, Stadthuys etc. (can... More

First time we stayed at the hotel and it was a good change from the usual hotel nearby. We liked the personalised service (refreshment on arrival, night service for the room) and it was a refreshing and more relaxing setting. The river facing balcony was a good hang out for the kid to play with his toys. Proximity to Jonker... More

It was a last minute decision for a weekend getaway for the family at Malacca before the kids go back to school. Did an online check for hotel recommendation and quickly shortlisted two candidates (I've been to Malacca before but would prefer to try out different hotels). Gave them a call and was glad that Hotel Casa Del Rio was... More

A lovely hotel, no two ways about it. However, it's let down by poor staff, especially on check-in. Lack of high table at the reservation area means staff flopped onto low chairs, looking sweaty and tired probably due to the open air, non-aircond lobby. Very unprofessional. The staff were also more interested with chatting with one another instead of attending... More
