Reviewed July 25, 2008

We stayed one night only because for the fact all the other hotels were fully booked. The hotel is being renovated and the rooms were done quite nicely and quite spacious. But you can still tell that it is an old hotel by their smell of the carpets.

Location wise is not convenient, well there's Mc Donald's in walking distance but that's all.

The breakfast is not recommended because it's seems like they are used to serve group travelers so the quality of the breakfast is not being taken care of. The Malaysian specialty of Nasi Lemak is served not quite their usual standards.

Oh well, can't complain so much that's why I moved to another hotel the next day.

went there for a business trip and the hotel, from the outside is nice but when u enter the room, it was dark and looks dirty. and i was right, crocroach was seen 'playing' in the drawer.

then next morning, the housekeeping knock on the door, it was early in the morning and we dont want it and we got scolded by them...wat the?!

then for the breakfast, food was bad, service was bad too. and after that, the naza service center guys came in for breakfast? i was shocked, how can their own staff eat with the guest?!

so, for all of u, the service is bad. tat will be my last time staying there and i swear i wont stay there anymore

Dear otyew of Kuala Lumpur,

Thank you for your comment in TripAdvisor. We regret your experience during your last visit to the hotel in July 2006.

We wish to inform you that we have since renovated all our rooms and facilities beginning October 2007 and due completion end December 2008.

Measures have also been taken to ensure that all staffs are trained according to the new image we are trying to project that is the Naza Boutique Hotels.

Please take this as a personal invitation to visit and stay with us again at Naza Hotel Melaka or feel free to contact me personally at 06-288 2288 or my mobile, 016-668 5485 for further clarifications.


Thank you and best regards.

We travelled as a group of 40 for the Santa Cruz mass on Sunday. We have been using the Naza for a couple of years now. This year, amongst my family members who occupied in total 6 rooms, the following took place:-

1. My sister's room - phone out of order. Insisted and finally changed room.
2. My brother's room - unmade when we checked in - ants dropping from ceiling right to his bedspread. He went out for lunch while the staff tried to rectify the problem. Came back a couple of hours later and was told they can't solve the problem. Changed room.
3. My room unmade when we checked in. Went downstairs for lunch. Came back and decided to switch on the aircon before taking a shower. The noise from the aircon unit was horrendous. Called twice before maintenance came and rectified this problem. Finally went to have a shower. Water pressure so strong that shower head literally jumped out of socket and hit my leg. Could see that shower head was already faulty and water spewing out every which way wetting the entire bathroom. Had a shower very carefully making sure that water pressure was low whilst doing so. Still bathroom floor was so wet that I had to use my towel to wipe the floor so that my daughter does not slip.
When my daughter went to shower, she took out her towel and noticed makeup stains (foundation) all over the bottom. We used that to wipe the rest of the floor. Called housekeeping for towels. Housekeeping came in with 2 towels wanting to know what was wrong with the other 2. Explained the situation and she told me that she would inform maintenance about the shower-head.
Left the hotel at 6.30pm and still no sign of maintenance. Went down and informed reception to get it rectified by the time I returned.
Returned at 11pm and noticed straight away that soiled towers still on bathroom floor and shower head still not replaced. Called reception again and they finally sent a maintenance guy who had a spare shower head in this hand. He spent less than a minute replacing it.

Walls thin. Dubious characters in the hallway between 2 and 3 in the morning. Saw 2 guys loitering in the corridor. Finally, they went to a room opposite mine and knocked. A female opened the door to them looking both ways before closing the door.

A male guest from another room uses the corridor frequently to smoke and walks round the corridors to do so.

Went for breakfast buffet at the coffee house next morning. They forgot the juice and had to be reminded. Refilling was also very slow. Coffee and tea came mixed with sugar. Beverages without sugar or with less sugar had to be specially ordered. No sugar satchets available. They had to be dug out and because there were only 2 staff, this took quite some time. No teaspoons available for stirring the beverage. The cutlery drawer did not have any. They had to go somewhere else to get the teaspoons.
Not enough serving spoons for the dishes and therefore you could see when something in red was used to scoop up the salad dressing. Cereals with milk but again with no sugar. No separate soup spoon provided for the cereals. You had to use the spoon provided on your table. However, after having had your cereal, if you wished to go for the main dishes which were either porridge, 'nasi lemak' or salad or fruits, there were no extra cutlery for you. We had to resort to using the same cutlery over and over again.
Service was very bad!

Will definitely not use the hotel again. Despite the renovations, hotel rooms very badly maintained with stains on the carpets and rooms have become very shabby.
