“Could be better”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

First off, I'd like to say that I really like the spacious and comfortable rooms. It was perfect for my family (with baby in tow). Let me list out the pros and cons:

What's good:
1. Very clean, spacious, modern rooms with modern amenities.
2. Two TVs, so some get to rest while the others can watch TV without disturbing them.
3. Tight security with RFID tagged room card keys.
4. Value for money.
5. Great security for your car if you're driving

What's not so good:
1. I still can't believe the counter staff told me there's only ONE baby cot in the hotel. Were they expecting only one family to visit at any one time? Makes me wonder why they have more than one family room in this hotel. Our baby had to sleep in a couch leaned against the bed.
2. RFID tagged card keys meant only 1 key for the room. Not adequate for a family if a few should decide to go out late nights and come back without disturbing the rest. Or else those remaining in the room have to sleep without airconditioning?
3. Weird wardrobe design: They've got this panel in front of the hanging rack, presumably to conceal the clothing hung there, but it would be great if this could swivel to open and close. Else, it's very ergonomically challenging to even hang our clothing in the wardrobe.
4. A little far off from central Malacca but since we drove here, this was not an issue.
5. Lousy breakfast. Lots of flies in the cafe.

Room Tip: Near to the road, so try to opt for higher floors.

Spent a day in Melaka at the Marvelux. The hotel was nowhere worth the amount charged (about 210 MYR).

a) For starters, the hotel is far away from the city center and tourist attractions.
b) The rooms are basic and do not even have basic amenities like a safe, wardrobe, not even a notepad.
c) The room was full of mosquitoes and cockroaches, and when we requested for a repellent, we were given a room freshner!!
d) There were noises at the hotel all through the night, over and above the traffic noises heard even on the 4th floor.

Overall, the service, amenities and location were more to the standard of a budget hotel, if at all.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The rate was reasonable, but not particularly good value for a budget hotel (about 300MYR). The rooms were very new and clean, but very sparsely equipped and simple. The hotel is in a newly developed area, so the location is quite far from central Melaka. There is a shuttle from the hotel to the central area, but it is still far better to drive. Free wi-fi and a simple breakfast is provided, which is nice. Overall a good stay for the night, but I wouldn't recommend staying more than 1 or 2 nights.

Overnight stay at Marvelux Hotel . It's basically a 3 star hotel built about a year ago in 2011.Had a bit of problem locating the hotel as my Garmin GPS device could not seem to find the coordinates published on hotel web sites. A good marker is the Bai Zhan restaurant nearby (it's a white sign on a white building !!!) - when u see it at a traffic light on yr left turn right and Marvelux is right in front about 150m away.

We booked a large family suite for 4 pax which was very spacious with two double beds and two LCD tv sets . Rooms were clean and bed was comfy. There was a nice large shower which was a godsend after a hot day in Jonker street.

No restaurants within 50m so until the new shophouses across the road are completed likely in mid 2013. Jonker street is only a 10 min drive away so I suggest your fill your tummies before heading back hotel.

Room came with excellent wifi and surprisingly good spread of buffet breakfast. Downside is no pool just a small gym . I would recommend it for a short stay for family with teens.

Overall it's quick good at the price of SGD90 per room. It's a bit far from the centre, but not a problem for me since I've been driving there. Not much to be expected for breakfast, but the variety should be enough for you. It's near to the seashore as well.

We stayed at the family suite. Mine is a family of 5, with children aged 4-11year old. The hotel is about a year old. The hotel room was clean, they provided free wifi, there were 3 cable channels on tv, in addition to their local channels, and I found a safe place to park in front of the hotel where the CCTV is located. Value for money.

Spacious.clean.2 king size beds. 2 TVs. Ideal for family. 10 minutes drive to town shopping and Jonkers street. Good value for money, when promotional rates offered. We got it at About RM 380 per night.
