We booked a three beds room in this hotel. The price was quite high because it was during Christmas time. Staff was very kind, helpful and courteous. The hotel is an anonymous chinese-style huge hotel. Rooms at big, not very clean. Warm (not hot) water. To go to the city a car is needed (10 minutes drive) or a taxi....

Really worn down room. The towels provided really smelly. Bed very hard. Carpet really dirty. They charged exorbitant price! Stay here only if other places fully booked. No breakfast provided. Very far from the city and not even near to the beach. Don't know how they survive when they are this horrible.

Having read the online reviews, we have no choice but to book this online due to the crowded and fully booked Malacca hotels in the town. My disappointment with this hotel is :- 1. Shower heater not working, 2. Shower soap dispenser empty and not able to dispense after refills, and 3. Aircon condensation causes water drip on my clothing....

This hotel is very over priced and badly maintained. Given the price we were expecting a hotel with just certain standard level. The first disappointment was that we had to pay 16% extra's(10% service tax and 6% local tax). The second disappointment was that it was too far from the center to walk, so every time we had to take...

This hotel rated as 3 star but the furniture in the room look like a budget hotel. Instead of a set of sofa, there are a square folded leg table and 2 folded chairs.Luckily the room is spacious and matress is still in good condition. I definitely won't come here again for the amaunt of rent.

Open reception counter. Slow operation. Limited variety of freak fast menus. Not clean and poor furniture. Sealing of room was very high, which was good. Even elevator lobby was open. Regarding its location, it was very far from the city area of Melaka. About 10 minutes drive distance. Totally my wrong selection.

The hotel looks old, but the cleanliness is good. Breakfast is average. Rooms are spacious. They have a spacious lobby and we can avail Wifi at the lobby. Over I can rate it as an economical average hotel.

We stayed there for 2 nights. The rooms are sparse and color was green all over the hotel - inside out. The hotel does not have much character. Well outside town and it was NOT easy to get to and from this hotel - taxi service is not great. The hotel does not have their own taxi. Lobby staff was...
