“Value for money, good for the family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

We drove from Singapore to Malacca as a family holiday, booked the sunflower bungalow (service apartment), clean and decent for a place in M'sia.
We were able to fit 2 cars in the pouch, the apartment has got 4bedrooms and 4bathrooms (1bedroom and 1bathroom on level 1 and the rest were at level 2), a dining area and also a living room area, fully air conditioned and also includes a washing machine!
The only downside was that the fridge was a little too small as it was only a bar fridge. Won't affect much if you are not the kind that prefers cold drinks, anyway, we were able to get ice/cold drinks from the nearest 7-eleven store (a common 24hr convenient store in Singapore and Malaysia).
It's not very safe in Malaysia, but, this place has got its staff riding bicycle around to make sure guests are safe! Double thumbs up on this.

Will definitely stay here if i'm going to Malacca again.

We drove up to malacca from Singapore as a family holiday

We booked sunflower hotel as it offered reasonable pricing for a bungalow which has 2 storey, 4 floors, 1 living room x 1 dining room x 1 kitchen, 3 x bathrooms..

The quality of the bungalow was of good standard and there was a car porch which can accomodate 2 cars.

The check in was swift and efficient.

We stayed 2 days 1 night as a transit place for a wedding in Johor. The hotel located at slightly off town but still consider not far from main attraction.

For those who travel with car, this might be a good place to stay. The price is reasonable and plenty of parking. The room is a bit small but comfy and enough to stay.

The breakfast is at downstair with ok quality and with a coffee or tea.

The only suggestion is the toilet for women is limted where else for me, there is more rooms and more spaces, should arrange the other way round where usually women take longer time to get ready.

Stayed here with sister for 2nights. My sister chose and recommend this hotel as she said it's price is reasonable and the room is ok too. I just followed as we had no much to choose from. Hmm.. the room is ok, clean and neat. Staffs there are nice. What made me happy is that, they provide hair dryer freely, it's FOC! as i knew many hotels would ask surcharge for those services. We stayed for 2nights and provided 1bottle of drinking water each day. Breakfast is provided at sunrise cafe which located below the hotel but we did not take it. A lot of parking place in front of the hotel. It's quite quiet in the night since it's not located at the bustling street. There is also a few of astro channels, such as ESPN.. What let me down is, we had to share bathroom. There was no attached bathroom in our room. We need to walk a short distance to bathroom to have a bath. Location is not very strategic, a bit far from town.

We are a family with three young children, stayed in the four bedroom villa two nights in the beginning of april.
First it was difficult to find the hotel as there are few JP 1 streets in Melaka and GPS brought us to a different place. But when we finally found the hotel, I was pleased it was clean and nice and the stuff was very pleasant. We arrived late and there was no food available in the hotel so they bought some food for us in a local restaurant. I found it very nice of them.
The house was big and spacious and very clean!
Two things I did not like:
1. Not enough dish in the kitchen. We were 5 and there were only two bowls for soup. No cutlers at all, we had to call for it.
2. The doors were squeaking terribly.
The location was very convenient, in a quiet residential area. 5 min from the centre of Melaka, better to have a car.
Our overall experience is very good and I recommend this hotel for a family.

Ps there were no swimming pool and fitness and it's by mistake I gave it bad rating (don't know how to remove it!)

I stayed at the One residence terrace house, handled and managed by Sunflower Hotel, along with 7 friends. The terrace is at the residental area just at the back of Sunflower Hotel.

AWESOME..!! That's all I can say. There's 1 master bedroom and 3 normal rooms. The master bedroom is so spacious..!! Even king size bed just cover 1/3 of the room area..!! You can play futsal in the room lah..!! Other rooms got 2 super single beds in each room. EVERY ROOMS have it's own toilet, which we shouldn't have to fight to bath or pee first..!!

We bought a promotion at MATTA FAIR on March 2012, consist 3D2N accomodation, breakfast for 8 people for 2 days, BBQ dinner for 8 people for 1 night (so plenty of foods, which myself and 7 of my friends couldn't even finish eat all of it), at the price of RM588. As i can see in the current brochure, the normal price is about RM470 per night, excluding breakfast etc. We were so grateful with the promotion.

Fast check-in and the amoy in the reception smile always. Fast wifi even been shared on 4 laptops. Satelitte TV. Spacious house. Really really big. 2 storey house mah. Car porch can put 2 cars. BBQ at the porch itself. The house on the arriving day was so clean.

Just 8 minutes from Banda Hilir..!! Drive out from the hotel area, 2 turns, straight road, there.. Bandar Melaka..!! So, you can go to menara taming sari, stadhuys, a famosa fort, hang li poh well, eat asam pedas, jonker walk, and so much historical places, just less than 10 minutes from where you are staying..!!

Have a microwave, a small fridge, no stove, no oven, dining with a table for 8, can rent a bicycle for RM10 per day to use it to town. Many shops and lots of restaurants nearby. I stayed at 4 hotels in Malacca before, and this is the best..!!

If you go with friends more than 6 persons, it's totally value for your money.

Travelled with 3 other families. At first I was vary because this was not a hotel or a renowned chain but am pleasantly surprised to find an entire terrace house to rent for the night. There is a living room, dining area and kitchen, in addition to four nicely appointed room. The decor is basic but tasteful. So u will feel comfortable. Great for large family outings. A home away from home. Kids just love the space. No pool.
