Stayed this hotel somewhere at last year with jaccuzi room. Great outlook with the huge and clean room. The hotel provides own private parking and walking distance to jonker street and world heritage spots. For those who worry about the heavy traffic, this is the best choice for staying!

An over-priced hotel considering what's on offer. Good location, close to Jonker Walk, but no restaurant on site and no room service. Breakfast options quite limited. Service is ok, but not quite 'Sterling'. Lovely colonial facade.

This hotel is listed as a 4 star establishment. Has parking that is safe and hotel itself looks wonderful at first but it is a facade. Lifts are old and there is no concierge/ doorman. Breakfast was good and room was relatively clean though dated. Also walking distance from the historical district but we drove to the centre of Melaka

Hotel is not as swanky as in the pictures, you probably have to lower your expectations a little. Some parts of the hotel seem a little worn and the layout is also a little weird in that the corridors are long and with lots of weird turns. That said, the rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean (we booked 3...

Booked the queen's suite for 4 adults and a kid. Plenty of parking. Interior is a little dated, could spruce up with more greens internally and externally. Can do a better job creating contemporary in a dated building. Ventilation can be better along the corridors to the room. The room is lacking in some hints of colour against a plain...

I've book a deluxe double suite with jacuzzi at the price of RM390. the experience is bad and totally not worth it. Jacuzzi is so old, function buttons are not explained properly. It took us so long to figure out how to manage the tap. Worst of it, no separate standing shower despite the large room space. We are expected...

This hotel is listed as a 4 star establishment which it most certainly is not. The hotel itself looks wonderful on arrival but unfortunately that is a facade of what you will find inside.
