The front desk staffs are friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is good. The restaurant staffs are efficient too.

Only minus point is getting across the main road is a probem for young and old.

Room Tip: We got rooms facing the pool and the straits of malacca.

I was here for a 3 day business retreat. times were spent in lectures, conference, meetings or discussions. The hotel is geared for functions and the services were up to the mark.

The coffee breaks and lunches were pretty good.

I stayed on the club floor. The privacy of the club lounge was a welcome relief after the days work.

The room was clean.

The hotel has a very young crew. The lack of experience was amply made up with the enthusiasm and a system that function.

I would consider this hotel again for any business meeting or getaway.

Easy walking distance to the historic centre (or free hotel shuttle bus) and fabulous location looking over the Malacca Strait. A well-equipped gym and excellent infinity pool. Good sized, pleasant rooms and helpful staff. Hotel is kid-friendly with several activities in addition to the large pool. Lobby bar is pleasant, restaurants are a bit deserted. Negatives are having to pay for wifi (2 hour complimentary usage applies to first night only) and unreliable travel service - my pre-ordered taxi on departure was over 20 minutes late. Free wifi is available at a couple of the restaurants/bars on the Jetty opposite the hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Holiday Inn Melaka and wished we had stayed longer. All staff members were extremely courteous and friendly. Our room was on the 15th floor with views of the Straits - it was so peaceful just sitting looking at the view and sipping on a drink before going out. The bed seemed quite hard when we first tested it but it was very comfortable and we had one of the best sleeps we have ever had. The easy chair and pouffe were also very comfortable. There was a nice swimming pool area and complimentary gym, sauna and spa bath facilities. The location was perfect and we walked everywhere although there was a courtesy shuttle bus available for guests. There was a shopping mall opposite and another on the other side of that. We were a little disappointed that the hotel restaurant was Italian cuisine - we wanted to eat Malaysian food whilst in Malaysia so we had to go to outside restaurants. This was not a problem but we thought it strange that no local cuisine was available. The hotel will allow you to check out at 12noon, store your luggage and use the shower and change facilities to freshen up before leaving for your flight. We chose to pay for a late check out which was half the normal room rate but worth every penny as our flight was not until midnight. We had a great time and would recommend this hotel to all travelers.

Room Tip: Request high floor with straits view

wht more can i say. . . aft chk out frm naza we rushd to holiday inn melaka. granted early chk in and an extra bed at no add cost. u cn imagine hw much we appreciate this hotel aft staying for 1 nite at naza hotel. world of differences btween the two. comfy beds pillows, spotless clean furniture- bt no tub. breakfst was great and services needless to say. . . enjoyed evry moment. just take note that mahkota parade wasnt exactly short walking dist( u hv to walk and cross the highway or walk further down to cross at mahkota hotel traffic light) hotel location facing the bck of mahkota parade. but shuttle provided bt im nt sure of the sched. pool is vry basic no slide watsoever. one more thng i noticed only blue taxis use meter but red n silver taxis u hv to bargain and sumtimes argue for the fare. got to know uncle saad who drove blue raxi. he is honest and polite forty sumtin man. u cn call his no for pick up or sight seeing if u dun want to be cheatd by other raxis. he will switch on meter evrytime wzout fail. overall stay is good and definitely recommend ths hotel to everyone. . .

Been lodging in this hotel ...maybe 5- 6 times over the past 2 years, each time we were in Malacca. It has never failed to impress me with its efficiency at the Reception and the order and cleaniness of the rooms.
Most Malaysian Hotels deteriorate very quickly due to sloppy maintenance standards. This hotel is one of the few which did not.
Front office, main lobby staff are invariable polite and helpful.
Only inconvenience is the rather circuitous route to get in and out of the Hotel..

Room Tip: I prefer rooms with city view. The sea view is dul
