The hotel is old but has been refurbished. The walls has been repainted and the toilets are clean. The rooms are really big, spacious and clean. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. There is a swimming pool in the hotel. Parking space are also available to park your cars. Very close to Dataran Pahlawan, about 5 mins walk. Lots... More

The hotel is old no denying that. They have closed down the restaurant which means that they do not provide breakfast. I thought that was a bummer till I saw the room. It was amazingly big for the price we paid and comparing to all the hotel rooms I have stayed in before this, I must say this hotel room... More

It is located in a good location. It is within walking distance to the St Paul's Hill, A Famosa and Jonker Walk areas. There is no need to drive if one can cope with walking. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food served for breakfast is also good.

1. Hotel location is great and easy accessible to shopping malls, Pahlawan etc. It is just behind the Equatorial hotel. 2. Ample of huge car parks available. F.O.C. 3. Spacious room with good air-conditioning. 4. Please make sure the lighting in the elevator (lift) is working properly. The building already looks very old and dirty so don't make it looks... More

The room was of good size and adequately equipped. The bathroom was alright with the shower over the bath tub, which was not securely fitted, This resulted in some unexpected movement when having a shower, which was a bit unnerving. Breakfast was pretty basic with a very limited selection. However the cheerful staff did offer to proveide freshly cooked eggs!

Whilst it is fair to say the hotel is a bit tired the rooms are a good size and very clean with comfortable fittings. Every day we had new clean sheets,towels and toiletries. Being from Europe we can struggle with some of the more Asian type of breakfast this was recognised by the owner who had the kitchen make us... More

This hotel is run by my father. It doesn't look like much, but the rooms are really good. I have stayed there before. If you have any complaints, please send them to me. I am in charge of the complaints and hope you will come again. Thank you.

On a recent impromptu weekend getaway, i stayed at this hotel as most other hotels were fully booked. I was reluctant to stay here in a first place having read a negative reviews on them. However, as i really need a hotel somewhere near dataran pahlawan, i gave it a try to this hotel. Come and join my experience ...... More

I read your generally unfavourable reviews and booked anyway; three star accommodation usually has a three star price tag and since we only intended to sleep and shower in the hotel our expectations were simple. There is no doubt that the Malacca Straits has seen better days, looking a little run down at present, but the reception staff were friendly... More
