I was traveling as part of a group. We arrived at the Sunshine Inn after a very sad experience at another hotel(?) in a Persian area in JB. The rooms were gorgeous with comfy beds, good lighting and electronic locks on the doors. A very nice surpise at what we expected to be a substandard 2 star hotel. This hotel is NOT substandard for its rating at all. Although for the inexperienced, the in shower hot water system was a learning curve! he he. The staff our group met could not have been more helpful for us. In fact they arranged our charter bus back to JB for the next day at very short notice! Absolutely wonderful people!
P.S. If you speak chinese, there is an excellent restaurant down the adjacent alley and around the corner, but they do not speak english and the menu is in chinese as well. Great food but!

Stayed one night with two friends, good wifi reception. Clean rooms and toilet. Looks recently renovated. I thought the room quite small. Its away from the crowd, but close to the attractions. Breakfast was some bread n banana, which I didn't take. Overall good stay.

It was our first stay in Sunshine Inn.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

Pros:
Hotel is very new, and the staffs are nice and friendly.
The room is clean and tidy, facilities are all great.
Attached hairdryer, comfortable bed, the air-cond works well too.
TV's good, there's some astro channel available.
Wifi is also available in the room and it has good connection.
Bathroom is rather small but very clean, and it's equipped with rainfall shower.
Parking space is also provided for the hotel guest. It's just opposite the hotel and directly across the street.

Cons:
The room smells kinda unpleasant to us. But still bearable.
We just open the window to get rid of the funny room scent.
Water pressure is rather small, hope that they can improve on this issue.
Location is actually quite far from Jonker Street, but closer to Dataran Pahlawan since it's located in Malacca Raya.
But this shouldn't be a problem if you drive.

We enjoyed our stay here as we had our extra bed ready for us as requested. The hotel put my mom's room very close to ours so it was easy for the kids to shuttle back and forth. Both our rooms were at the turn of the corridor so they were larger than the others. Noted another friend who booked separately from us who had a newer, a bit smaller room which included a day bed in the extenion (airconditioned) where it was formerly wasted outdoor balcony space. The renovations were well done. We will definitely stay here again if we travel to Malacca.

Great stay at sunshine inn, location is good as is near to the shopping mall and 10min drive to Jonker Street. Hotel room (standard) just enough for 2 paxs but hope they can clean the smoking smell in the hotel room when there is sign of NO SMOKING.

The inn is part of a shop lot, a few storeys up. We were given a room right above the reception area. Bad idea. In the middle of the night, a man was arguing with a woman right on the street below our room (in front of the inn). Even with the windows shut, we could hear the whole fight and it didn't help that it was already 4 am in the morning. The bout lasted around 40 mins (felt a lot longer than that) since I could only fall back to sleep a bit after 5 am. Get a room at the back of the inn, far from the street.

Decor is interesting, facilities are alright since it's been open for less than a year. Has wi-fi, enough TV channels to keep you occupied for the nights since nothing much happens in the area past 8pm. They allocate parking lots for their guests so that's a plus.

Room Tip: Anywhere that's not near the streets.
