We stayed at this hotel for 1 night during a business trip. When we arrived at the front, the car jockey helped us to park our car. They do not have their own parking, so the jockey would park our car at the school parking area which is 5 minutes walk from the hotel. They would however take the car for you whenever you want to go out. No extra charges but it would be nice to tip them for the trouble.
We entered the lobby area and the decor was modern with traditional baba nyonya elements. They even have a mini museum behind the reception area next to the outdoor garden terrace. The hotel interior makes us feel like we are in a traditional baba nyoya building with modern facilities.
We stayed in a standard room, 2 single beds. The room was actually quite ok, worth the money. Bed was comfortable, good air-conditioning, and bathroom was clean. Breakfast was included, at the outdoor garden terrace. Buffet style, food was ok, considering the reasonable price we paid for the room + breakfast.
At night, we walked out of the hotel onto Jonker Street (about 5 minutes walk behind the hotel) and there is a night market selling traditional malacca food, clothing, crafts. We recommend you try their authentic nyonya food: otak-otak, pai tee and laksa which can be found at many food vendors at the night market. There is also a well-known chicken rice ball sold at the chung wah restaurant. It is about 15 minutes walk from the hotel.
We would definitely recommend our friends to stay here, as the hotel is located in jonker street, where it is lively at night (night market) and close to museums.
