“Historical stay!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Great location and the hotel is very neat and clean, friendly staff especially Jeff at the front desk. We booked just a normal room yet it is very comfy for both of us and the toilet quite small but in a good way...clean and neat.. Definitely will stay here again..

Front of house and the rooms were the highlight of this hotel. Jeffery went above and beyond the call of duty to assist his guests, truly exceptional, in all the hotels ive ever stayed in and there have been 100s this chap was truly the most helpful concierge / front of house you could ever meet. The room was cool, modern and quirky and the food was pretty good too. I would highly recommend staying here during your visit to Melaka.

I can't imagine that the location can get any better than this for Melaka, you are so close to everything that is worth to see there.
The rooms are excellent although the lobby area could do with a little updating, but don't let that put you off, I would still recommend this hotel very highly.
In addition to which the staff are very helpful and pleasant.
I would definitely stay here again.

I chose this hotel to be close to the night market and it turned out to truly be in the middle of it. We happened to be there on the Saturday night of the Chinese New Year celebration. The entertainment stage and TV crew coverage stations were right outside the front door, and some of the talent was even using the hotel lobby and facilities to change costumes, and relax a bit. The manager was very concerned that the commotion and noise would bother or disturb us. On the contrary, we found it to be an exciting addition to our weekend in Melaka. We were assigned a room at the back of the hotel, and even though we went to bed well before the celebration ended, we heard absolutely no noise from the street. The room was recently renovated and very well decorated and stocked with many of the extras that the "boutique" description implies, and more. There was even a lovely and sturdy Jonker Boutique Hotel shopping bag provided. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bathroom had a bit funky lay out and there were 2 steps leading down into it after the bathroom door is opened. That is one of the reasons for the 4 stars, instead of 5, because I think it could be a potential hazard in the middle of the night for a groggy sleeper's bathroom break.The other reason is that in spite of a confirmed, printed booking with the room rate clearly stated, the clerk was trying to charge a higher "special weekend" rate. I did not get upset, but I was methodical with my steps to convince him that I would not be paying the higher rate (including my husband and I discussing that we should probably call the driver to come back and get us), and he eventually relented when I got out my phone to call the booking agency, Asia Rooms. So bring a printed confirmation with you and be prepared to stand your ground if there is a rate issue. It was a rocky start, but the manager appeared quickly after that and made great efforts to smooth things over, which was an acceptable conclusion to the problem. And yes, there are stairs from the lobby to any of the rooms, and no elevator, but we did not find them to be a burden. Help is provided, if needed. If we visit Melaka again, we will definitely stay at this hotel.

I am compelled to share how wonderful the management and staff at this lovely boutique hotel were. We asked them to organise a taxi for us, the driver was terrible... to cut a long story short they handled the situation marvellously (even though it wasn't their fault) and were anxious to foot the bill. For advice they were also great. I don't often write reviews but said I would for these guys because they were actually exceptional.

This hotel has the perfect location if you like being where the action is, particularly on the weekend when the night market is on. It could be a little noisy but really you should be out soaking it up rather than in your room. Staff were very friendly and happy to help. There's a little restaurant right next door which has good cheap food. Room was clean and had a bath and separate shower. Newspaper was delivered daily. Next time we're in Melaka we'll be staying here.

Nice clean rooms and good size bathrooms. Parking lot makes it very convenient if you're driving.

Surroundings are pretty much the main attractions and everything is within walking distance.

Do walk softly as the floors and walls are probable wooden base since its an old structure.
