This is a real Heritage hotel in perfect location of old Chinese part of Melaka. The choice of such hotels is not so big in this city if compared to Georgetown, Penang. Here the hotels are either very cheap offering shelter to young people or modern situated in tall buildings with no soul in it. But this one is real and authentic.
Gingerflower Boutique hotel is the best choice when you are looking for a place to stay in the very center of the city with all the historical sites incredibly close by and at the same time if you looking for a comfortable room. The hotel offers everything that a picky traveler might ask for. The rooms are very clean and fashionable.
Among disadvantages: rooms are really small, there is place on for the bed which is however very big and nice to sleep on. The personnel behaves itself very noisy in the evenings, they are shouting and laughing downstairs and don't care about the guests trying to get rest. Please don't hesitate to raise claims about it otherwise you won't be able to sleep as there is no sound proof as usual.
There is free public parking behind the hotel. Please make sure you have arrived before 4 pm on weekends. It is easier to find place to park that way and you will be actually manage to drive these narrow streets that will get flooded with thousands of people later on Saturday.
