After a long day of searching and scouting for a place to put up for the weekend in the busy Malacca town, we came across the Sterling, a mini-grand boutique hotel which is a real jewel and located 2 minutes from the best Satay Celup (Capitol) in town.
From the minute we walked in, the staff were nothing less than helpful, especially Mr. Tony Yew who showed us all the available room types before we made a decision. He even personally drove us to our car which we had parked a distance away at Heeren Street lead us back to The Sterling. (talk about personal touch)

As this is a new hotel, we were lucky enough to be offered their promo rates (yes, very reasonable for what you get!) and enjoy a very clean and pristine rooms! We settled for the Reiley a very spacious room, which came with it's own Jacuzzi. Almost all rooms come with a jacuzzi, even the grander ones with the outdoor Jacuzzi! Perfect for couples or even family I should say!

Other amenities like complementary wifi (although it didn't really work out for us for some reason), personalized stationary (yes, all thought of!) carpark (big problem in that part of town!) and most of what you find in 5* hotels.

Dinner at the rooftop was also a wonderful experience... Lovely ambience with choice of indoor or alfresco (some of us managed to watch have a clear view of the eclipse that night!) Price of the food is reasonable for the quality.
Set Breakfast was also delivered to us in our rooms the next morning (albeit a bit late but that's easily forgiven!)

A new boutique hotel with top rate local staff, all very attentive to your needs.
Wish we had found it earlier and spent both nights there! Will definitely be coming back for more!!!

Keep it up!!!!! *2 thumbs up*

Room Tip: They're all good!!!

Its a perfect retreat where the where the boutique is within a purpose built colonial style building in the heart of heritage city of Melaka.

Rooms are very cosy and spacious. Broadband internet available. Service is personalized and for guests who drive, there's a perfectly ample onsite parking.

The dining room gives a strategic overview of the Old Melaka City and food commensurate with the expectation.

A must try is all the rooms with jacuzzis. Really a great comfort to relax, unwind and a perfect weekend gateway.

Room Tip: Try the rooms with Jacuzzi, especially Brighton.

We booked a weekend trip on the 18th Nov - 20th Nov at The Sterling Malacca. We stayed in the Brighton room. The location is great, near A. Famosa, Museum Seri Malacca, Stadthuys, Dataran Pahlawan, Menara Taming Sari & also Jongker's Street, to name a few. The hotel is excellent, with modern & trendy accessories. The personnels were nice & friendly We enjoyed our stay very much & will visit again. Thank you Sterling!
