“Another wonderful experience!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Courtyard @ Heeren for 4 nights recently. It offered everything we wanted: great location, walking distance to all main attraction places; great value, with healthy breakfast included; wonderful staff members who are forever ready to help and so down to earth; and not to mention the beautifully converted traditional Baba & Nyonya house...it takes you to another era, best for those who have deep appreciation for Malacca's unique culture.

Just stayed there 2 nights in deluxe room G6 on the ground floor. As many reviews here have mentioned, the place is really trendy with loads of charm and character. (however, the room I got with its gaudy flowery wallpaper and old floor tiles wasn't really to my taste). The queen-size bed was rather small for the size of the room but it was comfortable enough. The rain shower had good water pressure and constant hot water. The breakfast space was lovely and the buffet provided was adequate. The young staff were well trained, friendly and helpful. My car was OK, parked in the uncovered reserved space on the back lane.

The above made the stay quite pleasant and satisfactory. However, there are some cautionary comments here:-

* When we first entered the room, the air was musty. It was OK after having the air-cond. on for a little while.

* There wasn't much natural light and ventilation in the room; the little and narrow courtyard by the bathroom couldn't receive much light from the glazed roof high above. A room on the upper floor would probably have been brighter/better.

* Due to the many nooks and crannies, there was a little dust and dirt in the room. Don't expect it to be spotlessly clean.

* The electrical wiring running behind the wash-hand basin to the fridge was shoddily installed and rather dangerous.

* The open wardrobe concept is nice but 4 clothes-hangers were just not adequate.

* There was a fair-sized centipede on the shower cubicle wall one morning. Luckily, I saw it before it could do any harm.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floor for more natural light and ventilation, and possibly less noise too!

A local friend recommended this place, location is excellent, just minutes away from what melaka could offer. We were greeted by friendly staff throughout our stay. Room is nice, comfortable bed. For their breakfast buffet, you dont get many slection like those big chain hotels, but its sufficient considering the size of the hotel.

There is a nice little cafe beside the hotel, very artistic little place. Great place to have a tea and relax

I was in Melaka for just 2 days as a break from Singapore. Melaka is only a 3 hour drive from Singapore and is worth a visit. We stayed at the Courtyard and were very happy. It's a bit more expensive than some of the others but this one has a lovely feel to the place, there are a lot of newer soulless hotels in Melaka. The staff are lovely, the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. I would definitely stay again!
When you are in Melaka make sure you walk the full length of the river on the board walk first thing in the morning. Walk up river on the left then cross over and come down river, great photo opportunities! It only about an hour walk but allow an hour and half for stopping. The river cruise at night is also worth doing.

We were so glad we stayed at this boutique hotel in Melaka, Malaysia in Nov 2012. From the time we entered this hotel, we loved the decor, and the wonderful staff. They made us so welcome here. Special thanks to Helen for her wonderful communications by email before our arrival. Jester with his warm personality welcomed us into this hotel and was very helpful with our questions and speedy check-in. Also a special thanks to Christopher for all his servive at the cafe. These three plus other made this a very memorable stay for us in Melaka. I would highly recommend this hotel Why stay anywhere else? This hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to the museums, restaurants, and shopping. Truly an experience I will never forget. Nice, clean contemporary rooms and bathrooms in a heritage building. Breakfast included, too. Breakfast buffet was really nice with fresh cooked eggs any style you want and a multitude of other goodies, ie fresh fruit, different ethnic selections as well and very good, nice strong coffee to start the day. I will definitely stay here again the next time I am in Melaka. I will always remember Helen, Jester and Christopher's smiles and hospitality when I think of The Courtyard@ Heeren.

Been travelling alot to Malacca for many times.. staying at Courtyard for the very first time... Nice and cosy place for a semi antique nyonya boutique hotel.... At least you wont have the eerie feeling just other hotels along Jonker street area... Price is reasonable for the services and amenities you get as compared to other hotels around Jonkers... The room deco was comtemporary style... And i like the shower area the most.. Haha ... Not to forget... The bed was so comfortable... Am not sure its because i am too tired or what... But i really slept throughout the night..Got up for breakfast at the building opposite the hotel... Greated by this young man who is so courteous and smiling.... Food overall... Mixture of american breakfast as well as some local delights... Yogurts... Fresh fruits... Breads... Egg cooked based on your preferences... Cosy and warmth dining area.... Most importantly, the location is superb.... same row as Puri and Baba... And its near to the junction connecting to Jonker Street... Save my time driving and looking for parking... Oh ya not to forget... They provide parking... If you dont know the direction... Always ask for help... Overall, i enjoyed my stay and looking forward to stay there again...

For the price we had paid, i think this boutique hotel is rather overrated.

The rooms are rather small, but clean. But what is annoying is the auto air deodorizer that dispense every other short interval, for a light sleeper, this is disturbing. Hotel compound is compact, and hence, when a phone ring in the middle of the night or when some one speaks in the courtyard it can be heard in other rooms.

Plus points : Very good locality to Jonkers' walk and eateries
Good breakfast quality and staff services.
