I'm coming back to stay at this hotel again during the recent school holiday trip.... This time, I managed to book 2 rooms side by side which can be accessed through the door inside the room.... I already book the rooms 1 week before this trip and by the time I reach the hotel around 12:30pm, I was told that my room is ready eventhough the check-in time is 2:00pm... Thumbs up for their housekeeping!!! Rooms is comfortable and we have a nice view of Malacca town... Nothing much I can comment about the hotel rooms... As always happened, the car park is definitely full as there are limited parking space in the hotel so the hotel staff are friendly enough to guide us to another public parking space opposite the hotel or you can choose to park at Renaissance Hotel which is also just opposite of Orkid Hotel and you can claim back the parking money when you check-out the next day...

I have stayed in the family suite for 3 days 2 nights. The front counter staff are friendly and helpful. Our room situated on level 9 allows us to have a glimpse of Melaka. The room itself is rather old but the management has managed to keep it clean and tidy. I particularly love the lounge setting as it provides a working table for my 2 toddlers to do colouring and drawing. Just one thing though, since this is a family suite, there should be 2 wash rooms instead of just 1. Oh yes! this hotel is definitely not for fussy people.

Arrived in Malacca last Saturday 12th July to spend the final 2 nights of our 20 day trip around Malaysia, Bangkok and Singapore. The travellers were my wife, myself and our teenage daughter. We had booked all of our travel and accommodation over the internet from our home in Australia and had no insurmountable problems during our trip. The last 2 nights we deliberately left unplanned in case we wanted to extend our stay in Singapore.
We travelled to Malacca by train to Tampin then took a local bus the 30 or so kilometers to Malacca sentral bus station which is a fair way out of town, then took a taxi to the city. The Orkid hotel looked quite presentable from the outside and the fellow on reception was helpful and showed us the available room which was a family room on the 9th floor, it appeared fine and we agreed to stay for 2 nights at 300 Ringits a night, including breakfast.
What a mistake. Within 30 minutes of turning in for the night the all pervading smell of deeply ingrained stale cigarette smoke became apparent throughout the suite, all night long our daughter was awake coughing and my wife developed an extremely bad headache, myself an 8year exsmoker felt very nauseous and could not sleep. We got through the night and went down to breakfast to find not one palateable dish, the toasters were faulty and the butter rancid.
We packed, checked out and took a wonderful room at the Holiday Inn for only a few Ringits more.

It is a 2star rating hotel. basically the room that i stayed in is clean but the carpet in the room is kinda old. the room is equipped with self controlled acon, a 21 inch tv with all the local channels and ESPN, a kingsized bed, hotshower, an electronic safe and extrapillows (inside the cupboard)

it cost me around 150++ for that standard room with all those ammenities above. the downpart is... no internet connection! the hotel is a 15 mins walk to Jonker's Walk and one has to pass through India street or chinatown to reach JW. it will be a nice walk in the night but during the day, the weather will be very hot.

overall, its a worthy hotel for an averaga stay. good night sleep is assured.
