This is my first stay at Holiday Inn Melaka. I have not been to Melaka for the past 5-6 years or so and Holiday Inn was not an available choice back then. I was overall impressed with the property, service and price point of the property after having spend 2 nights here. Allow me to elaborate on a few factors -

Locations wise - Pretty central, just across the road to Mahkota Shopping complex and Mega Mall which is about 10-15min walk to Jonker Street. Have to add that it's a highway that one has to cross to Mahkota, and that can be a bit challenging with older folks and kids. An underpass would be great.

Well appointed hotel - quite a well up kept project despite being around for a couple of years. Bears some nice touches like aroma oil burners in the washrooms. Attention to details is a good sign of a well kept hotel. Rooms are well kept and service prompt.

Good service staff - well trained and helpful from the front desk to restaurant. Well done!

Kids friendly - Very family oriented with the kids eat free programme, which was great when we were having the BBQ buffet. The spread of food and standard of cooking were good. We came away quite impressed with this. Breakfast buffet was also decent. On the rooms, while there were rooms with the the attached double decker beds for family, we were not able to secure one due to too few availability. Would be nice if there were more such rooms and a kids playroom if possible.

Didnt get to try the Tea Tree Spa which was a pity as we were impressed with the one at Holiday Inn Batam.

Overall I would recommend this as one of the best hotels to explore Melaka town from which in itself has enjoyed a renaissance of sorts.

Great place to stay with friendly staff. Rooms are large and clean although are getting a touch dated now.. but still very very good. The Sirocco restaurant downstairs is fantastic with great Italian meals.

Pool and spa are unreal and well worth a visit..

One word of caution regarding room choice is that if you wish for an ocean view room, make sure it is high up in the building as the Arena Nightclub at the jetty can be heard until late in the night.

Check in was a breeze. front desk lady, savinder, was lovely and could even remember our names and faces.batter leaving a request which was promptly fulfilled, she even called my room to check if everything was alright. She really set the tone for the stay! good job, Savinder!

F&B manager Joshua Lee was also excellent in meeting our request for a large table of 10 despite the restaurant being full. Same for Steven.

Hotel was well kept and clean. V child friendly, esp with the kids eat free. They have some rooms with a kids sleepeing area which was a real hit, though these rooms are v limited. Maybe they can have more?

Overall, fantastic!

Booked a last minute stay at this hotel, was not disappointed at all. Wonderful Service, Professional staff and every request we made was addressed promptly despite the hotel running 100% occupancy. We requested for an extra bed and by the time we returned from our tour of the city, the extra bed had been neatly arranged in our room with exactly the type of additional amenities we had requested for. Hotel room was well appointed, all equipment functional, had exactly the right amenities that afforded the most comfortable stay including an in-room safe, iron and ironing board ready in the closet, rain shower, clothes drying line, tea making facilities, flat screen TV , hairdryer and a complete set of essential toiletries. Pillow choices, firm, soft were available in room. I was truly impressed with the excellent service and the lovely aromatherapy scent that pervades the entire hotel. Kudos to the management - well done indeed!

Room Tip: I believe all rooms should be quite good.

Staff were very helpful. The room was big and very clean. It's in a great location. The shuttle is very convenient and there is also a bus that stops just outside the hotel. I would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: There is only a jacuzzi for men
