We booked the room with the river view balcony off-season. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet exceeded my expectations for a boutique hotel. The hotel was an old Dutch style building (similar to the Heeren street museums). The only bad thing was that the traffic outside the balcony was noisy and woke us up too early on... More

It's very cute. Right next to Jonker street. About 2 minutes walk. 5 minutes to get to the church. The girl who had the morning shift was very very friendly and help us get to know what to eat unlike the night shift girl who was rude and unfriendly. 5 minute walk to the Calanthe Art Cafe and 5 minute...

The Gingerflower is located in the heart of old Melaka, within walking distance of whatever one would want to see. Clean and bright, with a friendly staff, the only complaint we had was with the breakfast. Despite a good selection coffee and tea, and interesting local food, the breakfast was generally cold, even though the dishes should have been served... More

The good: Gingerflower opens right onto most of the things one would want to do in Melaka. So one does not have to travel far at all to eat well or see the sights. This is obviously very important. And the price was right. The breakfast was pretty good too. Cheers. The bad: Gingerflower describes itself as a boutique hotel.... More

The room is very clean, bed is comfortable and a balcony with river view, the one and only room in this excellent boutique hotel, no point staying in a 5 stars hotel that doesn't provide you with this luxury. In addition, the staffs here are nice and friendly as well. The only shortfall is the weak free wifi pending further... More

Shop house renovated into a beautiful boutique hotel. 2 mins walk to San Shu Gong, the beginning to Jonker Walk. Excellent location being in the middle of everything. 4mins walk to red hse and 8 mins walk to St Paul Church. Basically, once you check into the hotel, you need not drive out as nearby attractions are all walking distance.... More
