“Simply Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Everything about this hotel was absolutely delightful, from the initial greeting with a cool face towel and a cup of tea, to the wonderful spa treatment. The service was great and the hotel staff gracious. This is one of the best hotel experiences I have had in all my years of travel.

The hotel has a great spa with a wonderful choice of treatments but the high point of our visit was the tour with Chou. She was a great guide. She really enjoyed showing us around malacca and shared her knowledge of the city and its' history.

The friendliest hotel we have ever stayed at. Service plus and always with a warm sincere smile. Everytime we came back we had such a warm welcome and it felt like coming home. The Majestic has lots of old world charm. The restaurant has a great feel to it. The location is excellent - you can enjoy the walk along the river to Jonker Street. Miss Chew who offers a daily walking tour is wonderful and the tour highly recommended. Kai was a great bartender and introduced us to a few new and delicious cocktails. The bathroom can become part of the main room in your rooms which was very cool. We loved our stay at the Majestic and it made the wonderful gem that is Melaka even more special.

We spent the weekend in Malacca and the Majestic hotel was the best part of the trip. The room was very well appointed. The bed was quite comfortable. The toilet was very pretty with the retro bath tub and the open set up.

The breakfast was super. I ordered the Majestic omelette which was a meal itself. The fruits were fresh and sweet.

It is near enough to walk to the main sights. There were a couple of good restaurant nearby which locals go to like the Lee Crab restaurant just behind the parking.

The one improvement is the noise coming from filling the bath tub from the room and upper floor. Other than this, it was a great relaxing weekend.

but overall, it was still a gorgeous property exuding class and elegance from a bygone era. I would definitely return if my decision were only based on the warmth and hospitality displayed by the service staff and the aesthetics of the room which by the way was breathtakingly beautiful. However, the rather thin wall between the individual rooms would undoubtedly make me hesitate. We were rather lucky during our stay to not have had to contend with crying babies or raucous children but the sound of toilets flushing, doors shutting, closet door slamming and vacuuming in the hallway would certainly be a concern for a light sleeper like myself. Thankfully, I had with me my earplugs which helped reduce the noise level substantially. Perhaps the hotel could study the feasibility of implementing an adults/couples only floor or install better soundproofing? The hotel should also look into the gap between the glass shower door and the floor as there was sure to be a mini flood after each session. By the second day, we had to request for a few bath mats to soak up the water. Other than that, the claw-footed bath tub was a dream to use and filled up surprisingly quickly. The location of the hotel was also slightly off putting as it was a good 15-20 minute walk to Jonker Street so unless you are well adapted to the heat and humidity, be prepared to spend on cab fares during your stay. I am sure guests would appreciate a regular shuttle service to Jonker Street at a nominal fee.

This was our second stay at the Majestic Malacca in 3 years and I'm very pleased to say that their standards of excellence were as fantastic as ever. The only thing that has dropped is the room price due to newer competitors such as Casa del Rio, which is great for the consumer. The rooms were spotless and immaculately turned out, and the whole experience was outstanding. The spa is excellent as well.
Downside: the location at the end of Jalan Bunga Raya, which is 15-20 minutes' walk to Chinatown. If you really need to be in the Jonker Street area, then based on location alone, you might want to consider a hotel which is closer. But for second-timers who want to have a more intimate and off-the-well-trodden path, the Majestic Malacca would be right there in terms of choice.
