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.
