“Disappointed”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

My family and I checked in for a night during Chnese New Year .

The room was big , but it has musty smell and not well kept . It definitely need rebrushiment .

We asked for additional towel .We did not get it as it was hotel 's policy to provide only 2 towels per room . Furthermore , no WIFI in room .

I believe we can always get a better and cleaner hotel within the same area at the same

I will not recommend Avillion to anyone who wish to visit Malacca.

My family and I stayed for only one night. The room had a fridge with complementary bottles of water. Something I could not stand, though, was the bizarre carpet odor in the corridor. I had to stop breathing when I got off the elevator till I reached the room. Wifi is free only at lobby, which is not unusual. It takes only 20 minutes on foot to downtown Melaka. At some point during my stay, I went to downtown, took a look around, and came back within an hour. to me it just an ordinary hotels like other hotels..its just fine to get 1 or 2 night rest in this hotels.

My family and I stayed for only one night. We were skeptical because we read some pretty bad reviews of the hotel on tripadvisor.

When first entered, we found the design of the hotel to be quite nice. It had a nice greek theme to it and there was a really nice dome design in the lobby.

Then, we were handed the keys to our room. We entered the room and found it to be only satisfactory.
The desk had old stains on it and it looked dusty. It was also missing a few knobs. That is the same for the cupboard that held the TV.

The TV was an old one but that doesn't really matter. What annoyed me was when you open each drawer, you will find it to be very dusty.

Other than that, the safe deposit is not free. They require your credit card. I find that shocking because, well, safe deposits have always been free to me.

Then, the wifi is only free in the lobby. In rooms, you have to purchase it and it's rm5 per hour.

The breakfast also sucked. It was terrible food. Anyhow, at least, the noodle soup was alright and the egg counter was okay.

The aircond in my room wasn't cold at all. It was only alright. That was a little annoying.

Other than that, the hotel was alright. It has a nice swimming pool and a pretty good gym.

The hotel also provided shuttle bus to destinations such like Jonker Street however, the timing of the buses are only 12pm, 3pm and 6pm.

But the hotel is within walking distance, about 20 minutes away from Jonker Street. My family and I walked.

The service in this hotel is very good. The staff are kind and friendly.

So all in all, a pretty good stay.

I had to stay for two nights here and was a bit afraid to check in because of somewhat poor reviews. In my opinion, the hotel is quite alright, if not perfect. I have not stayed at other hotels in Melaka, so I don't know the general standards in the region. I presume, however, that the hotel would probably above par in the area.
Bed was good, although there was stain and a cut hole in the bed spread. The room had a fridge with complementary bottles of water. Something I could not stand, though, was the bizarre carpet odor in the corridor. I had to stop breathing when I got off the elevator till I reached the room. Wifi is free only at lobby, which is not unusual. It takes only 20 minutes on foot to downtown Melaka. At some point during my stay, I went to downtown, took a look around, and came back within an hour. In this regard, I might as well say that the hotel is well located. The cafe at lobby provides buffet, which seemed like Malaysian food with some more. I found it okay. I have not been to the gym/pool.
Overall, the stay was better than I had expected.

Hotel had all you could ask: big room, spacious bathroom, decent breakfast. But it is a 15 minute walk to get to the old streets or river. Staff were very helpful. Good value in terms of quality of accomodation. I just didn't like the position of the hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights during school holiday in December 2012. The hotel is located in town centre and is easy to reach. The hotel lobby with it's stained glass cupola ceiling (perhaps inspired by the La Louvre) is awesome.

Pros
1.A department store "The Store" with McD inside is located across the road on the left side of the hotel.
2.The hotel is surrounded by everything you need to look for or buy.
3.The room is furnished with everything fridge, hair dryer and so on.
4.Parking is abundance if you're driving (the aisle in parking bay is quite narrow, an alphard would have tough time).
5.The rate is reasonable.
6.The pool is big and quite empty at most times and the gym is fully equipped.
7.The hotel has a shuttle to major destination in town but latest pick up is 6 PM.
8.Free breakfast is average but you can have omelette, croissant or Melaka nasi lemak (with chicken rendang). Taste ok.

Cons
1.The room looks tired with analog TV. Free channels are crystal clear while Astro channels are garbled. We don't watch TV a lot so this is a pass.
2.They only 2 bath towels and there's no hand towels. You need to call for additional towels needed.
3.The twin beds are small and can't fit 2 person.
4.There's only 3 plastic cloth hangers in the wardrobe, bring extra of your own.
5.No free wifi in the room, however free wifi is available in the lobby.

Well, this hotel is good if you don't set your expectation too much. It's a 4 star anyway.
