“Average no-frills hotel”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Average hotel but clean, that's the only reason why we stayed here. Toilet needs more lighting. Breakfast is minimal. Plus point is few eateries around.

This hotel is very new(just a few months old) and is located convenienty near big shopping areas and eateries. Places of interest are also easily accessible. The room is quite spacious and it comes with a comfortable king-sized bed! They have lift and parking space too. There is also a good spread of menu for breakfast.

I stay one night at this hotel. I walk-in without booking and was attended by a nice counter staff. Stayed at the Exective King room and the room condition exceeds my expectation. The hotel was new so that was no foul smell and the bathroom (with rainshower) and bed was all in good condition. The room decor was special and spacious. However as the hotel was fully book, they could not entertain my request for extra pillow. Hotel is about 10mins walk to the shopping malls and there are plenty of eating houses next to it. Parking is plenty but unsheltered. Check out time is 12pm but if u are late for 1 hour they charge RM10 which I feel was reasonable. Overall had a great stay.

The Hotel is very new, also smells new when we enter the lobby...very affordable. Parking is free everywhere.

THe Executive King that we have is simple yet neat and neo-retro but only 2 soft-pillows. Break1st is good for the price we paid but exhaust out-put is needed; too much frying in the dinning area choke-up the air that we have to leave soon. As I have said that its very new, so new that staff have problem getting things done fast enough. Corridors is not air-conditioned so can be really stuffy. A disco-teq near by that pounded till dawn..:(

Other than that the hotel is surrounded with lots to Shoppings and Historic sites to see. Especially the old Chinese district called Jonker St & China-Town...bargaining is a compulsory or you pay 50% more!

Round the corner is a Noodle & Porridge Restaurant; served beautiful seafood. 4 dishes we had, cost us only RM$95. Dumb-up!

Chicken-Rice Balls NOT recommended.

Stayed in this hotel in July just 1 week after its soft opening.

Location is not fantastic. Its further inside Melaka Raya. Fenix Inn will be a good choice, very accessible to attractions.

Bathroom flooring was not well smooth and sharp edges cut my toe resulting in a big wound.
No "First Aid Kit" in the hotel. Manager has to go out and buy, which by the time was way past 30 mins later and i have already bandaged with portable first aid which i brought along for travel. First Aid is a basic necessity.

Only rainforest shower is available which makes it not really easy to bathe if u do not intend to wash from head to toe.

Check in/out was slow. Hotel had no record of my booking even though i have booked through Agoda and is able to furnish the voucher. Staff claimed they did not receive/saw this booking. Check-Out took a long time even though the taxi was waiting. Staff did not know how to operate the system. Require a credit card deposit of RM50 upon check-in but didn't know how to release the amount upon check-out. After numberous tries, recept produce a receipt claiming the release is done.

To my horror, when i am back in Singapore and check on my credit card bills, the amount is not release. Called a few times back to the hotel before a staff called back and informed that their bank is having a problem and will release the amount the following month. However, its now End of September and i have yet to hear from them. Send a feedback via their website also received no response. Made a call to them yesterday (yet again and wasting more money on international calls), a staff claim she is not from the front desk and not able to help. Its the next working day and have yet to get a response from them. Either the staff or the management is really turning a blind eye.

Would caution travellers of this hotel.

We were given 1 access card for a twin sharing room. It is so inconvenient especially when 1 party need to go out and the other party can't have a peaceful sleep because he/she must open the door when the person returns to the room. Even with a very valid reason e.g. the person was sick and needed a complete rest, the hotel staff can't issue a 2nd card to the other party. Once the card is taken out from the slot, the electricity is automatically cut off.
Also the bath area is without a glass door and all the water splashes out to the outer floor.
As such, this hotel is only suitable for single occupancy if the hotel management doesnt change the stupid policy.

Hotel is new. Check in wasn't quite smooth as friendly front staff claimed computer system was down. 2 lifts serving a few floors of rooms. In spite of this, there was minimum wait for the lifts throughout my 2 days stay over 2 public holidays (hence high occupancy) :-)

I LIKE the rain shower, non-centralised airconditioning in the room, indirect lighting in the room, comfortable beds, plasma TV, and the general cleanliness of my room.

I DISLIKE the fact that there is no fridge/mini-fridge in the room, no writing table, no chair, pillows and bedsheets smelled of ex occupant's body odour (I am sure he was a man that perspired a lot!), no disposable shaver provided, and that the room faced a building under construction that looked abandoned, and very loud music from night clubs and bars nearby.

Hotel is quite conveniently located to 2 major shopping centres in Mahkota area. 5mins walk to Mahkota Shopping Centre, 7mins walk to Dataran Palawan. Can be a hike to Chinatown and Little India.

As a whole, it was a good experience. I was happy to have chosen La Boss after having investigated some other budget hotels in the vicinity. I think I have paid a relatively high price for the room but it's 2 major public holidays during my 3 days 2 nights stay so every other hotels in central Melaka were either booked out or had their prices jacked up a lot.

Room Tip: Apparently the cheapest deals are those offered via the hotel's official website (as advised by...
