I have stayed at many fine hotels around Asia, not only during my current seven week trip to this continent but in years past, but this one was superb in every way: excellent and roomy accommodations with a view of the river; superb location --- a three minute walk into the heart of Melaka; an incredibly pleasant and helpful staff, starting with Susan who seems to be the supervisor of much of the staff cohort and who is most responsive and capable; an excellent array of breakfast choices; and a very positive response to my request to extend my check-out by two hours. And the cost was quite reasonable indeed.
Not only that, but lots of "little things" -- e.g., in the public restroom, a dispenser of mouthwash with little disposable cups to use; a dish of sweets in the room; a scented (!) souvenir book mark to take home; even some whimsical items like the little "rubber ducky" perched on one corner of the bath tub.
Did I mention that the bathroom was large and lovely as was the walk in area where one finds a closet plus plus. Oh --- very comfortable furniture on the balcony overlooking the river.
In short, one terrific property with all the right "touches."
