Recently got back from my 2D1N trip. Here's my 2 cents' worth..
Room is big and have ample space for walking. Place is kept clean, bright and simple. Beds are comfortable too though cant compare with Casa De Rio Melaka. Do request for high floor rooms and sea view as we saw some rooms with windows facing close each other.
The hotel lobby looks grand but empty. Think they will need to rethink the chairs and tables positioning etc.. It did not look welcoming for us.
Maybe it's a new hotel, the reception and house keeping staff were a bit slow in delivering their service. Waited for an hour for check-in when we arrived at 3.30pm. We were many waiting at the lobby too, some were frustrated as they have to forgo some of their plans. However, they did offer to call us on mobile so we can walk & shop around first. Generally, the other staff were friendly and was prompt in replying to my emails before I got there.
Hatten Hotel indeed has great advantage in terms of location!! Good shopping & good food surrounding her!
Located in between major shopping centres of Melaka. Dataran Pahlawan Melaka and Plaza Mahkota are just one traffic crossing/ one bridge connecting away. Short cut to Plaza Mahkota and to use the hotel exit near the lift (exiting to the digital mall where the hotel is). After exiting the glass panel door, walk straight and use the door in front (there's a snack shop on the left). This door exit to the service lift and where security guard was, and in front you can see one small road, cross it and you are in Mahkota shopping mall. For Jonker street, you can want to walk over using the road beside Equatorial hotel. There's a short cut from Detaran Pahlawan shopping mall food court. Was told -- find the food court and walk up to the back street and you will enter the road heading to Jonker street. Expect to pay RM15 from hotel to jonker street if by cab. Coming back from jonker to hotel, you may want to try taking the public bus no. 17. The bus stop is just in front of the red historical buildings a mini bridge away from jonker street. Just tell the bus conductor you are alightling at Mahkota, only RM1 for that trip for about two bus stops away. Press the bell once you see Detaran Pahlawan on your left and Mahkota on your right. The bus stop is just outside Detaran Pahlawan, then take a stroll back to Hatten Hotel.
In terms of good food around Hatten, one must try ....
Nadeje Patisserie Cafe for its Mille Crepe @ Plaza Mahkota. They are located in the shopping mall, however do not look inside the shopping mall for its shop, they are facing the main road at the other end of the entire Plaza beside KFC.
For Nyonya food, walking distance from the hotel either Makko or Ole Sayang Nyonya restaurant. These two are very famous but do check out their day off. I think Makko off on Tuesday and Ole Sayang off on Wednesday. Walk out of the main hotel lobby, turn right, walk straight and cross a small road then continue straight into the shop houses. You will pass by Fexin Inn on your right, then you will see Makko on your left. For Ole Sayang, continue walking straight. You will pass by a Phamacy, hair salon and Secret Recipe cafe on your right. Ole Sayang is a one or two shops away Secret Recipe cafe on the right.
Overall, the stay was very pleasant for our short trip!
