Stayed a night at The Sterling. Found the hotel through tripadvisor and was not expecting much. I usually stay at Hotel Equatorial whenever I'm in Melaka. The Sterling turned out to be a hidden gem.
ROOMS & HOTEL: the rooms are of decent size with a King sized bed, small side tables and chairs, 4 very strategically placed power points, excellent shower facilities (rain shower, shower head & body massage jets). Toilet space is efficiently used. The bathroom floor is non-slip and dark coloured. Theme of room is modern chic - clean lines, dark colours and comfortable. The parking is good, no underground carpark to navigate. Security post faces the carpark lots. The hotel is new and looks well taken care of till now. Food for breakfast is not a huge variety but its serviceable.
My room's aircom (all the rooms were affected) broke down and the service staff were very apologetic and.polite. they managed to swiftly deploy a fan for every room to ensure air circulation. They also waived charges for the room for that night. Prior to this, the aircon was locked for whatever reason, when we called the recep, the maintenence came by the room really quickly. All staff whom I encountered all spoke really good english and problems were resolved efficiently.
LOCATION: it is about 5 mins walk to jonker street via jln bunga raya. For shopping at Hattens, it's a walkable distance if you have a map. Should take about 10mins.
I would stay with The Sterling again as the service is more personable and friendly.
