The rooms were good, but small. The room and bathroom was clean. However, the flush in the bathroom was not working. That was a problem. Also, we were not allowed to check in till 4pm even though the hotel's check-in time says 12noon. The owner cited the reason being that the "rooms were being cleaned". That is not acceptable as we arrived at the hotel only at 2pm and they had 2 hours to clean the room before our arrival.
Also, we were asked to check-out at 11am itself even though the hotel policy states that the check-out could be done till 12noon.
Finally, do not ask the owner to call a taxi if you are going out somewhere. We asked for a taxi to be called to get back to Melaka Sentral bus station. First of all, we were asked to share the taxi with two other hotel guests, and we had to pay RM30, each, for the one way transport to the bus station. However, we had paid just RM20 overall for two people while we took the taxi from the same bus station to the hotel, while we were arriving at the hotel. Maybe the owner has some deals with the taxi drivers to get some commission for himself.
If not for these inconveniences, it would have been a pleasant stay.
