-Not worth for your money; the rate is too expensive for the hotel/room/service condition. Rm 189/nite. You could get much better brand new hotel in town with much cheaper rate.
-Room condition is not acceptable. The mattress is totally lousy; i doubt that they change the bedsheet after people checkout; no aircond n tv remote

If u would like to have a "stress-free" vacation, think twice or more before u decide to stay here!!!

after reading others review, we were expecting the worse. However, after checking in, it is not as bad as the review. No cockroaches, toilet were clean, except for the carpets were old and dusty. Our room were facing the road, thus vehicles sounds clearly disturbing our sleep. The breakfast were edible, but they did not refill the food until we requested them to do so. We enjoyed playing in the swimming pool.

Room Tip: Request a room facing swimming pool

The location was not close to any attraction and we had to cab to anywhere. Each cab trip cost at least RM$15. Plus you have to wait 15-20 mins as they have to call a cab. Service at front desk was poor. After we checked in, we had to cross the road and walked 3 minutes to another building where our room was. My next trip I will definitely be staying elsewhere.

They do process On-line reservation which is a sign that someone is assigned to Read their Mail : )

Our choice was the 1 Room Apartment which proves to have ample space for a family with young children. There's a decent living and dining area but I can say that some push is required with especially the carpet cleanliness.

Roughly situated at 2.8Km from Jalan Kota (St Pauls) plus they fact it do provide shuttle service to town makes it an option worth considering if you're looking for a place with a Decent Swimming Pool around the same price range.

Dining should be less of the worry as other than an In-House Cafe, there's a few local restaurant and stall on the next block.

This apartment style hotel has an air of faded glory, but was excellent value for money. The bedroom was huge with a separate kitchen/living area. Needed some minor maintenance, but was a nice spacious place to stay with free in-room wireless access and a great buffet breakfast. Also has a swimming pool. The downside for us was that the Agoda website described this as being in the centre of Melaka. I did this booking "on the run" with limited internet access so, my fault, did not check the map properly. It was nowhere near Melaka old town. The hotel runs a free shuttle bus, but this means it's not easy to go back and forwards during the day if you want some downtime at the hotel. The staff certainly made up for this with their helpful attitude (especially Jennifer) and they went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay.

What a terrible experience!
Our room was full of cockroach, the staff was rude, the hotel has a bad localization and the breakfast was a kind of joke.
And it is expensive!
