“Great boutique hotel and excellent location”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

We had a short break in Melaka and stayed at Jonker Boutique Hotel. The location was excellent - right in the heart of Melaka's Chinatown which is really buzzing at weekends. It was a bit difficult to find by car (especially with the one-way system). But good secure parking. Rooms were spacious and comfortable and tastefully decorated. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the hotel was excellent value. Would certainly go back!

I stayed at the Jonker Boutique Hotel, I really felt like home.

The reception staff are very friendly, helpful, sincere and honest. Service was great, cannot asked for more. The room is very cosy and comfortable except for noisy neighbours upstairs.

I would like to say a big thank you to: Amy, Kalai, Kay and Jasmine. Guys, good job, keep it up !

Happy Easter.

Room Tip: Room facing the main street is good if you like to view the performance on stage. My mum loves it...

We stayed here for two nights last week. Prior to checking in and paying we were shown a very nice room at the front, overlooking the main road (room 101). Having read earlier reviews, I knew noise might be an issue and so I made a point of asking the reception staff about this, twice. We were assured that it was only noisy at the weekend due to the street market, and not during the week (we were there on a Wednesday and Thursday).
This turned out to be a complete untruth. We were in bed trying to sleep when we were disturbed, after 10pm, by noise from a loud karaoke bar across the road. The noise continued until some time after 1am. Not only this, but but we could hear every footstep in the room above (every time they visited the bathroom, boom boom boom…) - it sounded like elephants as the ceiling had no sound insulation. I hardly slept that night due to the ongoing disturbance.
At 8am we were disturbed by banging and drilling in the neighboring building!
I complained to reception about the late night and morning noise and I was very angry to be told that yes, it is noisy at the front (they obviously knew about the karaoke bar and the building work). It was clear that in order to fill a room, they had lied to us the previous day. Great!
They moved us to a room at the back (not so nice as the previous, but still at the same rate!), but the neighboring building was pretty much a construction site - banging and drilling. The lady on reception (who appeared to be in charge) assured us that it finished at 5pm and did not start until 10am. I questioned the 10am start, as we had been disturbed at 8am that morning, but again I was assured that 10am was the case. Well, again what rubbish. The following morning the building noise started at 8am.
We were checking out that day anyway, but I did raise the matter with reception and the young woman there laughed, saying that the building work always starts early! I could not believe it - one untruth after another. And the staff making the false claims were doing it in front of their colleagues who, at the later stage, were the ones telling us the contrary. What is going on here? Very disappointing.
When we checked out we were overcharged as they had not included the discount we had been offered on arrival. However, I pointed this out and the bill was amended.
The worst thing is that we had looked in at a couple of similarly priced hotels nearby and knew we could have been staying somewhere better, and probably for less money.
These were the last two nights of our holiday, and the lack of sleep and dishonesty of the reception staff just left us with a bad taste. It spoilt things.
This hotel is overpriced, especially bearing in mind that breakfast is not included.
The hotel was clean and the staff very friendly (but that does not make up for lying).
I do not recommend this hotel and will not be returning.

Room Tip: Avoid the noisy rooms at the front of the hotel, overlooking the main road (unless you are a heavy s...

An excellent hotel, very centrally located with helpful staff. The room was very spacious, as was the bathroom, with good facilities and very clean. Extremely good value for money. Would be happy to return.

Of course the price are not cheap.
But certainly one of the best. Location wise it was good.
You will find Jonker Street right at your doorstep which is perfect.
Right next to it you will find a foot masseur, just in case you walk around too much and need some real massage to your tired legs.
Parking wise have no problem, the private parking is limited though but in any case parking is cheap, like 5RM a night something like that.

We stayed for 3 nights recently and had the most wonderful time from the moment we arrived. The location is superb in that it is right in jonkers and walking distance to most of the heritage sites in malacca. The room is spacious and clean. But the highlight of our stay was the wonderful staff. Right from the moment we arrived, we have experienced the best hospitality malacca has to offer. They have gone beyond their call of duty when they assisted us when we had car trouble. Nothing is too much for them. We are so grateful to all of them. We would certainly recommend this gem in malacca and will most definitely stay there again the next time we return.

We had a really pleasant experience, location is excellent (right at the entrance of China Town), parking lot for your car rental is included (Melaka downtown is pretty crowded, this is really a plus) and the room we had was big and comfy. Despite being on the Main Street, was absolutely quite and even the Friday market didn't bother at all since at 23:00 everything stops, even the public square karaoke.
Only minor thing with the breakfast: available in the Jonker cafe, not included but at a very reasonable price, variety is not much (omelettes and toasts),especially if you have any intolerance (my wife is gluten intolerant). Overall excellent
