Seri Costa Hotel-Resort
Ranked #79 of 167 Hotels in Melaka
Reviewed March 21, 2011

Good location with reasonable walking distance to Jonker Walk, historic places. Room was not clean as I was bitten by bedbugs and had to visit the 24hours Mahkota Medical Center in the middle of the night (4+am). I can see dust collected on the wooden bed frame and cupboard. Buffet breakfast is average (so-so). Not recommended for those who have sensitive skin medical issues. The carpark is provided but it is not free of charge. The hotel will provide you with 8 pieces of carpark coupons and you have to buy extra coupons from them if you need more times to shop around the areas without driving out (please bear in mind that parking is free from 6pm-8am daily).

a strategic place to stay especially if u wish to have a free and easy trip around Melaka.
a lots of food store and shops around this Hotel.
only walking distance to most of the popular places.
Room is clear and the crews there are nice.

a. Location wise - Good - 5 mins walking distance to Shopping Malls / 10mins to Jonker Street.
b. Room Cleaniless - Average. Bedsheets + Pillow sheets, etc are clean except the floor carpet + furniture is old. Room are big for family of 4 pax
c. Breakfast - Nothing special. Porridge / rangdang / rice / bread / juice... no more....

Overall - Acceptable as you only pay minimum to stay at hotel which is nearby the malls / church / jonker street for 4 pax. Maybe couple might not be worth as room rate almost same for family room. Not a romantic hotel..

I went to Melaka the first time with my parents, siblings, cousins, and a couple of my young nephews (under 7). I didn't have much expectations because the hotel didn't look so impressive on the outside. Even the lobby is just okay.
The room that we booked, however, was simply amazing. I think it was a family suite (couldn't be too sure because my sister booked it) and it had 2 twin beds in the main room, plus a bunk hidden between 2 walls, zen-style. A small corridor leads into the main bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a slim closet. The main bedroom is spacious and it has a high-ceiling with windows through which the morning sun creeps in to wake my sister up (because she took the main bedroom).

The bathroom was spacious and pleasantly clean -- that's honestly the best part of it all. I cannot tolerate anything less than that.

The location of the hotel is just amazing, because it's within walking distance with shopping malls, restaurants, and tourist attractions.

I would definitely come back to stay at this hotel if I visited Melaka again! :)
Wonderfully affordable and exceeded my expectations!

We were stayed for 2 nights in Family Room for 8pax with RM580nett/night. The room was clean & spacious that better than what we had expected. Previously was worry about the room condition since referring many negative feedback posted it on its review. The location is walking distance to Mahkota Parade around 10mins & Jonker Street around 15mins. At night by walked to Bay Lounge & Terrace in Hotel Mahkota Melaka around 10mins from hotel, enjoyed with live band performance there. =) Hotel served with simple breakfast such as porridge, nasi lemak, toast, noodles & drinks. Extra headcount for buffet breakfast is RM22/pax. Hotel staffs are friendly & helpful.

I find the superior room, king size bed,the soft type pillows,and the quit-cover type of blanklet suitable for my needs. The bath area is spacious and clean,but water pressure is not strong and water not hot enough.Aircon must down down to the lowest temp if not room feels very warm. However my room is facing the sewage plant, not smelly though. I like the view and is able to see which directions to go and explore the places nearby.There is a tasty noodle and porridge coffeeshop which I think is good and inexpensive.Must try a cafe serving yummy "thousand layer cakes" There is quite a few other coffeeshops serving japanese and nonya food for those on a budget and dont care to go and hunt for delicious food.

However the free breakfast looks pathetic but taste ok. Alot of small details like table setting,the utensils,napkins and menu looks old and dirty. The staff got too friendly and ask alot of personal details which make my friend uncomfortable while we was eating.Never get too friendly with the staffs,they seem unable to respect guest privacy.

Walking distance to MAHKOTA & PALAWAN shopping mall, the newton food centre ok for
drinks only,food dont look good. In the evening, take a nice walk to the famous Christchurch,shipwreck and jonker walk is very dead and quiet in the weekdays.

Overall, location is very good,but not for those who wants to cozy up in the hotel room most of the time.Book thru the internet and skip the breakfast for better rates.
