Almost certainly the best hotel in Malacca. And Impressive service recovery on a couple of occasions. Dont expect fab views from the rooms.
Small boutique hotel with about 46 odd rooms and a handful of suites. Don't trust the GPS/google map - it gives the hotel location at the wrong and opposite end of a one way street.
Some room gremlins: air con not working well (room temp 28 deg C); fridge was good at keeping contents at room temperature; shower contrived to simultaneously drip cold water from rain shower above whilst dispensing warm water from hand held shower head. Hotel managed to rectify those issues within the first day.
The BEST part of the experience had to be the bed linen, mattress and pillows - they are to die for. I pulled the bed apart to get the suppliers name. northernasiafeather.com . In Singapore. Have already ordered some for the house.
The connecting room sound proofing isn't up to much: I couldn't fail to hear the non stop natter from my room neighbors. Fortunately (for me and them) I dont speak a word of Chinese....
No room wireless - you have to head down to the reception for that. Intermittent signal strength and sometimes none at all.
Oddly no formal room service, but if you ask nicely they will provide a restaurant menu and let you order from that. When the wrong food was supplied on one occasion, all charges were waived. Overall, good quality food. The bar prices may make you weep however: RM20 for a beer. Head down the street to the Discovery bar for a cheaper ale.
Very attentive staff.
Probably not a place for the kids and family, but as a couple get away, near perfect.
PS If you have fair skin, don't go running at lunchtime in a singlet, unless you want to look like a gweiloh on their first trip abroad to the tropics. The noon day sun will turn you red in the blink of an eye. Trust me on that one...
