“Majestic rooms”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Being regular visitors to Malacca, staying at the Majestic was unavoidable. The rooms were picture perfect. The morning breakfast were not to be missed; unlike other hotel stays, our boys woke up early to attend everyday. The hotel lobby was filled with many jars of goodies...peanuts, prunes, cookies, biscuits of yesteryear.
Nearby, there's a Chinese kopitiam that sells lots of local fare & our favourite was the nyonya chang.

When the taxi pulled up to the hotel, I admit that I was disappointed. The hotel is crammed in among new construction. But that's Malacca, not much green space and lots of construction. But when I stepped into the lobby, I was taken back one hundred years. The interior of the hotel is historic and simply beautiful. The service is outstanding and the rooms are cool and elegant. Make sure you take advantage of the free walking tour offered each morning (except Wednesday, I think). In addition to the major sites in Malacca, the guide, who is native to the city, offers you glimpses of the back streets, with tales of current and former residents. A lovely hotel in a fascinating small city.

The Majestic Malacca is a 1920s mansion restored by YTL to a boutique retreat. Its a charming heritage stay option to immerse yourself in Malacca's vibrant and rich cultural history.

Located along the Bunga Raya road, its about a 15minutes walk to the old city, nearby attractions (Melaka Riverside) and Jonker street. Do plan a morning or evening walk to these attractions as Melaka weather can get extremely hot. Tip: The hotel offers a complimentary guided historical walk.

We were greeted warmly by the staff, and welcomed back each time we returned.The lobby area provided little local treats and a colonial elegance for lounging/reading. The swimming pool and gym is small. Dining at the hotel is scheduled at 7:30am - 10:30am (breakfast), 12nn - 2:30pm (lunch), 3:00pm - 6:00pm (tea) and 7:00pm - 10:30pm (dinner). Breakfast was satisfactory nothing fancy or interesting.

The hotel also offers a spa village with therapies based on the blend of Chinese and Malay culture. Turned down service was unique, the service staff left us a plate of Peranakan sweet treats.

The hotel provided a map with a self-guided walk around Melaka's historical landmark, however, the river boardwalk was closed for construction and we had to take another route to Kampung Jawa.

When we travel for personal pleasure, we do like to stay in hotels that are outside of the typical big 5 star hotels mainly because we want to learn more about the local culture, meet and talk with local people, and enjoy the warm atmosphere generated by the staff and us appreciating mutually every sign of the ‘random kindness' so hard to experience these days. The hotel is truly amazing place to stay in - from the main lobby, library, dining room, pool side all the way to the rooms. We came here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and felt like royalty from the moment we walked in the lobby - we were greeted by the manager of the hotel, were seated with refreshments during the check-in time and at the same time learned about the history of the building going back some 90+ years. Our room was full of surprises every day and night - from the flowers and refreshments to the bath with rose petals to little treats waiting every evening. The hotel staff is incredible – everyone did more than we could ever expect. From greetings to serving the food and occasional coffee and tea to helping us with tips on what to see in this historical city. The personnel smiles and is helpful naturally – not because they were told - something really rare these days. We enjoyed the cooking class and the massage in their spa as well. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to slow down and enjoy every moment of their stay. Our next stop was in Cameron Highlands Resort, some 400 km north from Malacca – hotel management arranged for our transportation to this hotel with utmost care – from the taxi with flat rate, packed lunch to the last minute refreshments and local food / snacks while waiting for the taxi all the way to extending their care to this next hotel. We will never forget this strongly positive experience.

Beautiful little place that renders the old charm of the city during colonial times. Nice decoration made of wood and ceiling fans, great level of service coming from all members of the staff. The breakfast in particular was a real treat, with a choice of house made banana pancakes or cinammon French toasts for example. The room was really elegant and comfortable. The location is good, with a 10mns taxi ride to get to the old city or market areas. The swimming pool is rather small and not ideally placed so that you barely get any sun during the day. There were only a dozen seats available so you might choose another place if you are looking to sunbath. I have also noticed an extremely noisy water system inside the rooms. When the room located above ours wanted to take a bath or a shower, our room would get very noisy until the bath is full or the shower is stopped... I found it very strange and not acceptable, really. But I guess the hotel has to deal with an extremely old water / pipeline system and that there is not much that could be done about it apart from destroying everything and rebuild it from scratch. Even if this was really troublesome, I still feel that the hotel deserves a good five stars for the level of service and for its atmosphere in general.

We stayed at the Majestic for two nights in September. Only a 15min walk to the town centre, lovely along the river. The service was genuine and fantastic, from the tea upon arrival. We enjoyed the food for breakfast and dinner as well!
