I wouldn't mind staying in this hotel again. My husband and I decided for a short getaway to Malacca last weekend and we didn't want to spend much money on accommodation.
I spent almost 2 days researching for a decent hotel because I know hotels in Malacca especially the ones near the towns are over priced. Once I stayed in Hotel Puri, which had very good reviews. Although it was clean, the room itself were small & stuffy and for the price of RM230++ per night, I felt cheated.
So this time, I tried to book Aldy's but it was fully booked. My second choice was Mimosa Hotel. The hotel itself was ok.
Lots of other members commented on different things, so here's a summary of what I have observed during my stay, having read their reviews before staying there.
Lift - smells old, but I wasn't bothered. I have been to 4 stars hotels in Thailand that doesn't have lifts. Plus, I booked the room, not the lift, so nothing much to complain about it here.
Wifi - was available from my room (2nd floor) and it was not near the lift. Reception was good. And it is free.
Breakfast - was just enough, though limited, and it is buffet. And it was tasty! I enjoyed the nasi lemak sambal they served on Sunday morning. Coffee was GOOD!
Room - spacious and clean. No comforter though, air cond was in good condition (in fact I had to shut down in the middle of the night as it was getting too cold). Mini fridge, coffee/tea making facilities available.
Bathroom - Does give away the age of the hotel, has a bathtub though not too inviting. Just nice to get a quick hot shower and get ready.
Location - walking distance to most of the historical sites, Jonker walk. Jalan Bunga Raya is one of the little known places in Malacca where you can buy cheap cloth, shoes and jeans. So walk around a bit. Madam King's is a supermarket which is right next door (right of the hotel).
Parking - limited during the weekends. If you're driving, try to reserve your weekend nights for a good walk from the hotel, and leave your car at the hotel. Jonker walk is really in walking distance.
Booking was made through the Hotel website (the cheapest rate on the net) and I paid RM138 nett (tax+breakfast for 2) per night. Parking is free if you're a guest. Daily newspaper are given free.
