Check in and out was quick and efficient. No tourist information available in hotel lobby and no hotel information available in room. Bell boy when checking in gave us a photocopy of a street map of central Malacca. Staff were all friendly.
Room was adequate clean and the beds comfortable. Our room faced onto the busy street so the higher the floor your room is on the less street noise you get. Our air conditioner temperature we could not re-set but the room was kept reasonably cool. Ironing board and iron was available for use by the lift.
I think we were probably the only westerners staying at the hotel at the time. We found the breakfast a bit limiting in choice as obviously the hotel caters for their mainly Asian clientele. Breakfast took place in an open dining area just off of the lobby, There did not appear to be a hotel bar or if there was one it was well hidden.
The swimming pool is located on the roof and is small but adequate with good views over the city and the surrounds from there.
The hotel is not exactly central for the tourist attractions but is close to the river which is pleasant to walk along down to the Jonker St area but not so direct. If visiting Malacca again would definitely stay closer to Jonker St.
