The hotel is simple but need to clean out more especially toilet. The water is very low pressure and yellowish colour. My kids get sick after play in the jagguzi. Very spacious. The famous satey celop is very nice and that is the only food around. Oth food stall is soso only

This is a great boutique hotel. Situated in the heart of Melaka. A great location within walking distance to most attractions. Great food can be found near the hotel - traditional, Malay, Chinese, Indian & baba nyonya cuisine are easy to find. For travellers with cars, abundant parking spaces are available. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Hotels... More

It was my wife and I's first visit to historic Melaka and for history/ art nerds it's was incredibly interesting and we were surprised by the number and quality of the museums. The Sterling was a short walk from the major tourist attractions, breakfast was sufficiently varied, room was comfortable.

This hotel does not live up to it's four star reputation. I booked two rooms, a family deluxe room and a standard deluxe room. The family room was for my parents and sister, the room was very spacious and the decor of the bathroom was nice and modern but the wallpaper in the room was peeling off and the over... More

A historic looking hotel that does a have a pleasant feel of yesteryear. Unfortunately it fails to match it with facilities that compare to it's four star rating. The hot water supply to the shower was patchy in the mornings with a couple of cold showers being endured. The door to our bathroom would make a loud sleep disturbing noise... More

The hotel's location is within walking distance to Jonker Street, and a manageable walk to the shopping centres (though we took a taxi instead). The hotel room is quite good, where the aircon is cool enough to provide relief from the outside heat. The walls are also relatively soundproof - we couldn't really hear the kids from the next room.... More

A delightful little mini Raffles look alike hotel. The staff were always friendly with a wide smile. Thoughtful little gestures such a container of iced water with tint of lemon was placed at the reception. The rooms were huge for the size and the bed was very comfortable(Just the way I like it). Toilets were huge and very clean. The... More

I spent 2 days 1 night here with family. We booked the deluxe family suite with jacuzzi. The room was spacious and the bathroom with jacuzzi was amazing. Free breakfast was provided at the rooftop restaurant. They served good food but with limited choices. Hotel staff were friendly. Location of the hotel was just perfect for me. 1 min to... More
