i had stayed in multiple hotels scattered along jonker street, but for our wedding we wanted a special hotel that would mean something to us. The thing ith jonker street is that most of the fanciest hotel doesnt have the malacca river view, only the street view, and on weekends the noise from the bars block pretty much all the peace of mind. so i walked along the fancy hotels, doubled back then walked along the malacca river side to find hotels there. I came across a budget hotel and requested to look at their rooms. they had the standard cheap brown bedding synonymous with all budget hotels. but this one just threw me off. They had such a laid back entrance, homely bar (where can you get a homely bar in a boutique hotel?!) a traditional Gujarati swing, a group of mismatched wood and rattan chairs and a great view of the malacca river, flowing into the sea and a clear view of the church across the river. The room was great, it was by far the biggest hotel room we've had in all our years of staying in hotels.
Room 6 on 3rd floor has:
a tv but i totally didnt see it
a china tea set
private balcony facing the river with quiant table and chairs
a huge bed
fan and air condition
I requested their best room for my wedding night and we were given room 6 which is on the highest floor, the 3rd floor. mind you that they dont have elevators so you will have to climb up each time. well, what can i say. i fell in love with this place and would definitely come back next year
one thing which i wasn't really happy about was that the lady promised she would give us roses and candles free of charge but when she emailed me she listed these things with price list so i had to tell her to cancel it and just get the bucket of ice and wine glasses.
