Hotel ground, facilities and room are very nice decor and comfortable. We loved the room: large, bright, with large and very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom and old style bathtub. All in colonial style, clean and updated. Staff very nice, polite, helpful and attentive. We stayed over Christmas and all hotel was nicely decorated. Great breakfast. The best choice if you stay in Melaka.

Room Tip: Any rooms is probably great.

Had 5 nights in this excellent hotel. It was like stepping back to a far more civilized time and place. The staff were excellent. Look out for Min who is a real sweety. Highly recommend staying here. If only all hotels were run like this one. Top marks to all the staff.

Nice service in a hotel with an interesting past. Strengths are excellent service, nice rooms., very nice city walk from hotel. , proximity to river boat trip station. Weaknesses are odd absence of privacy of bathroom toilet, non/insulated door/ensuite between rooms, location somewhat off the historic center (about 15 walking minutes). Breakfast was ok, but meager by Malay standards. Dinner was good, but not exceptional and rather expensive. In a year rtime the view will be destructed by an ugly high rise that the Malaccan City Council approved and that could cost themn their assigment as world heritage. Constant haggling with taxi and bikle drivers and non/fixed taxi fartes are a nuisance in Malaysia at large.

Room Tip: avoid rooms with a door to next room `en/suite', river view is good.

We loved this hotel. We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 children (toddler and infant) in one room. It was the perfect size for us. The bathroom is separated from the room by sliding shutters (so not much privacy if you need it:) and includes a large claw-foot bathtub and separate shower.

The staff at this hotel were wonderful. Always friendly and helpful. They even packed a small lunch for our bus trip back to Singapore. Much appreciated when the bus stops at a small place on the side of the road that has nothing appetizing.

The hotel lobby is extremely welcoming and has all of these wonderful nonya snacks that I grew up with like salted plums, almond cookies, coconut milk caramels, preserved sweet olives, etc. I loved it! Every evening, we came home to a small nonya kueh (cake) and it was delicious.

The breakfast was really nice. Good selections.

The location of the hotel was perfect. Just next to the river and about a 10 minute walk to Jonkers.

A beautiful hotel with old world charm without being too opulent, charming decor, excellent service and good breakfast spread. The bed was so comfortable I just melted into it and slept like a baby! The spa was also great with an interesting hair ritual. Everything you can ask for is well taken care of, but of course, one would not expect anything less from YTL! The nonya kueh that is placed in the room after every turn down service is so delicious, welcome drink and yummy snacks that brought me right back to childhood were all wonderful. A great place for a quiet retreat. Love the library the most!

This hotel was once the home of a rich Chinese merchant - an absolutely stunning building, the attention to detail is amazing.
Staff are incredibly friendly, especially Poshan and the Front Desk team.
Breakfast was fantastic - best waffles I have ever had in my life, and the rooms are spacious, and very luxuriously appointed.
You feel like stepping back in time once you enter this hotel, it's definitely a relic of a glamourous, by gone era!! Will definitely be back, thanks!!!
