“sitting pretty”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Allow a day or two to get accustoned - and you'll appreciate the 2 bedroom/2 toilet plus a kitchenette appartment next to Holiday Inn, a notch cheaper, servile and superior in no small measure, the buffet spread and the biz centre facility included (as we travelled without a laptop). To cut it short, me and wife found none of the flaws levelled by some reviewers, rather some harmless routine manifestations and standards like the bathtub's plastic turning yellowish in this climate. I never regretted having chosen this hotel on the price value and location basis, particularly so after the city river cruise. There's seems no option so well balanced, so healthy and so close to eventful spots. Please note there's no beach along the Melaka shoreline, but the hotel is sure to add one after the work will have been finished. One point less for the absent animation and for the terrible pop band exerting in the pub. But then those are hard to come by in Malaysia.

Room Tip: Do not insist on seaview - there's nothin' in it. Take the block nearest to hotel administra...

Age-wise, this establishment can be considered dated in view that at one time, it occupies the prime real estate that attracts millions to Melaka. At first glance, the exterior facade looks promising but expectations can descend very quickly as you checks in to the room. Our rooms was an hour after the official 2pm check-in but it wasn't ready till we decided to move in to the rooms anyway. We took a 2-room apartment with a non-functional kitchenette and a common lounge for the TV. Cleanliness can be better and reminisce of those chalet apartments in Singapore. It's mostly a DIY fare where you need to get your own towels from the cleaners, refill your water from the cooler outside, doing your best to be thankful that the beds still hold together and that the toilet flush is working. TV/cable channels are patchy but at least there's decent reception. Beds are hard but comfortable enough for the tired Jonker Street shoppers. Location is definitely a plus as its walking distance to the nearby Mahkota Parade shopping mall and eateries. The poolside is child-friendly so no worries for anxious parents. The service staff seems to be trying their best to appease demanding guests and its really no fault of theirs for the less than stellar language transactions in view that the hotels serves mostly local guests rather than overseas.
If you are looking for top-notch service and immaculate accommodation, I suggest checking in to other newer establishments.

Room Tip: Avoid the 2nd floor at the block housing unit 9XXX if you don't mind the musty stench from old c...

Hotel is a bit old. Smoke smell in the room. When check-in, cups from previous occupants not washed. Stuffy outside. Some rooms air-con not cold. Lift door not able to close properly. Card keys were not properly bar coded. Service too slow. Nobody to attend to guests when contacted room service.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms from block 5 which is nearest to the lobby. Also, contact the hotel before checking in...

The location is good and the pools are really nice, but that's about it. the room was out dated with a very small bed. The bed sheets had holes in them. Our toilet was broken but they did fix it fairly quickly. I couldn't get the hallway light on coming out of the elevator when we got home late at night. It's not worth what you pay!!

Stayed for 1 night. Free parking provided. Strictly check in after 2pm. Counter staff service was good. Received rooms keys but only 1 room able to access. Stuck outside for the other room as the key seems to have error. Bathroom was not that clean. Shortage of soap and shampoo and water from the bowl is yellowish after flush. Shower water pretty small. Overall feel not worth for the price paid.
