“Great idea, poor management.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Went with family for holiday in Malacca. Malacca is a nice place to visit during NON festive season but alas we went during the festive season and the place is jammed pack. Rented this house that is 10mins away from town centre. Good for big family like mine as there are 4 rooms that can sleep 8 adults comfortably. Breakfast is depressing. Upon check out, the receptionist accused us for stealing one of the towel. The house came with 8 towels, 2 in each room, but in the pea brain of theirs, one room must have 2 towels(meaning you cannot remove one towel and place in another room) and hence they claimed one of the room missing one towel. After 40 mins of checking, then they found the towel. The receptionist did not even apologise. She said in a very annoyed time that we places the towel in other rooms. The house is value for money.if you go in a big group but the attitude of the staff just ruined the holiday for us. The towel is as dirty as floor mat and it is very insulting to.be accused of stealing the towel.

I had a most wonderful time staying at One Residence from 15/6 to 17/6. It was a double storey terrace house with a huge living room with 4 bedrooms (3 on the upper floor and one on ground level). It comes with individual attached bathrooms to each bedroom. The master bedroom is awfully huge with a king size bed. The other 3 bedrooms come with two single beds. The whole unit, I would say, can take in easily 20 people (sleeping in sleeping bags in the living room or the master bedroom (which can take in 8 -10 people, space not a problem)).

The place is very big and clean with microwave, free wi-fi and the basic toiletries and amentities of a hotel stay.

I am unable to share if this place is near to the shopping area as my extended family chartered a private coach at our disposal for the whole duration of our stay in Malacca and thus, commuting in and around Malacca was not an issue to us at all.

If you google One Residence, the pictures you see from the internet is what you get. So I am not loading any photos here.

Every morning, there will be staff to change your towels and replenish the free sachets of coffee and tea and do general housekeeping. Breakfast is provided. The hotel, Sunflower Hotel, which manages One Residence and which is about 5 mins away from the cluster of 25 terrace units that it manages (i was told) will send over the breakfast trays to us. There are a few choices to pick. Generally, bread toast, scrambled eggs, sausages, sandwiches. You just need to submit your choice to the Hotel receptionist the day before.

Even though this is a row of terrace houses, the walls are soundproof and so it is really peaceful and quiet once you retire to your own unit to rest after a day out shopping or sightseeing. On the whole it is a really great experience staying at One Residence, especially with a group of family members, having the space to sit around and bond.

I will definitely return to One Residence again if I am travelling with my group of family members.
