“A home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

This hotel never disappoint me. We have stayed there at least 3 times. The last time, we left our phone upon checkout and only realised it when we reached Singapore. The hotel has kept the phone for us! This recent trip, they upgraded our room to one with Straits view and bought us to the executive lounge while they get the room ready, even though we were a little early for checkin at 11am. Special thks to Ms Farah.

Great swimming pool. Good gym. Great rooms, with the choice of hard & soft pillows. Good sized room with sufficient lighting. Cozy decor, good location as it's only a 5min walk to the mall. Excellent Italian restaurant at reasonable prices. Friendly staff. What you would expect from Holiday Inn everyday. Predictable, reliable & always a good experience.

The location is really good. My room had a view of the water. There is a little Jetty with some reclamation/construction going on. Once the project is done, the view should be really good.
The rooms were nicely appointed. The pool looked clean and nice.
The hotel is very close to all the local attractions.
The hotel breakfast was pretty nice. There was a very good selection of food.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

First time being in Melacca, didn't really know how to go about walking around etc etc. Staffs were friendly and helpful, gave us a map and explained to us what we needed to know. fyi there's a shuttle every 2hr to central area (to and fro) ; but we decided to just walk cos its actually very near - thus location wise is great. Plenty of food around the area, so that's good. Hotel was clean and view was nice. I think the only thing lacking was free wifi, its chargeable at 24RM per 12hr i think. Other than that, everything's just great.. Spa was nice too. :)

Room Tip: Maybe could request for room facing the sea? Mine was facing the city, thought sea view will be nice...

The Holiday Inn offers excellent service, a great location, nice rooms and good amenities that go well beyond your typical Holiday Inn. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend it to family & friends.
Pros: personal, attentive service; walking distance to the sights of Melaka and the major malls in town, contemporary rooms, pleasant club lounge, recognition of Priority Club membership
Cons: large, high-rise hotel (only a con, if you have an issue with that...)

We staid here for a weekend getaway and it was our first visit to Melaka. We received a very warm welcome at the front desk, including a drink and a cold towel. The check-in took a little time and the front desk manager used the time to give us an overview of the highlights of Melaka, a map, etc. She also offered the local number and her direct number, should we need any assistance during our stay - a very personal touch! If your Holiday Inn experience has been mostly with US properties - this is a whole different world!
We were assigned a suite on a higher floor with a view of the strait (I'm a Priority Club Platinum member and this represented a free upgrade - thank you!). The room was very spacious, with contemporary furniture and a large bathroom with separate shower and tub. The bathroom amenities were standard HI fare.
We checked in early and waited for our room in the club lounge. They offer coffee and free wifi all day. We returned later for drinks and snacks and breakfast in the morning - all complementary if you have a "club room".
The hotel has a very nice spa. We had a massage there. The massage rooms are little chalets on the pool level, making for a very pleasant environment. Both therapists were very good (4-stars)
They have a very nice infinity pool - unfortunately it was closed due to a private event (wedding). We checked it out the next day and there are very few lounge chairs - so if you have your heart set on relaxing by the pool, you'll have to get there early to snatch a chair (I deducted one star for the "spa" category, because there is not enough space around the pool for a hotel of this size).
The hotel is in a great location, just across the street from the major malls in town. The malls are all connected, so its very convenient. The old town and Jonker Street (night market) are in walking distance (about 15min) or a short cab/tricycle ride).
I'd stay here again and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor with a view of the Strait

I was checked-in to the hotel on 15/10/2012 an arrived at10 pm. The reciptionist done the registration so fast. Having supper at the escen restorant with italiano foods. The room was so clean and greener king bed size. Hihgly recommended to business traveller that want to stay one night only. The worst part, the room can hear the noise from the Arena club especially when it the middle of night. Nice view from my room facing the pulau melaka. Checked-out on 16/10/2012 next morning with the fresh sea air. There were serving western, local and signiture dish. I like to stay again in this hotel.

Upon arrival, staff welcome us with sincere smile and served with welcome drinks at executive lounge. Room are nice, spacious and my kids really enjoyed their holiday. In fact, we really prefered to stay in the room rather than going out for shopping and outing. The staff are well trained, friendly, helpful n most important is their sincere smile. Just wish my appreciation to Miss Michelle that make our stay most memorable and enjoyable one.
Definitely will come back to Holiday Inn whenever we spent our holiday in Malacca.
Bravo to the Management & all the staff for everything
