Free parking and walking distance to the night market made this an attractive option and it was a bargain to boot. The room was ample-sized and king bed was comfortable. Compare this quality to a Hampton Inn and you won't be disappointed. The staff is friendly and the room we received was quiet. No bells or whistles - but it...

I’ve booked a Deluxe Double Suite with Jacuzzi at the price of RM 354 and spent a night at this hotel on 24th April 2017. The most fascinating element of this hotel was the colonial design building and location. The Hotel situated in a convenient location, within walking distance to the old historic quarter and some good food places. BUT...

This is a good mid tier hotel. It has seen better days, but the people are friendly and has that homely feel to it. So long as you can over look the tears in the carpet you will have a great stay. The real advantage of this hotel is it proximity to Jonker St. It is no more than 10...

We enjoyed the jacuzzi so much.... Comfortable place to rest and they also have ample parking lot. Breakfast is awesome as they provide variety choice of foods from local to western. WiFi provided. Easy access to Melaka Central and there is convenient store in front of the hotel.

The hotel is strategically located so we walked to Jonker Street and the other tourist sites we could visit. It helped us save money since we wouldn't need to pay to park our car. The service given was pretty good - receptionist kind, friendly and helpful. The security guard cum concierge helped carry our bags into our room. However, the...

I think the most fascinating element of this hotel was the exterior aspect. It looks great from the outside but for me that was it. The room was small and not very inviting. What was to be a room on the balcony actually was a room with no vieuw at all. Maybe cause of late booking in high season, but...

Stayed in 202, reached the corridors to the room there was a very damp carpet smell. The room also had the same smell. It was unpleasant. The location good as it was walking distance to jonker and morning breakfast was alright.

We have ordered a room with jacuzzi but it haven't been used for long time so the water was so dirty of dust from the system so we couldn't use it. Also the safety box and cooker didn't work and and after 24 hour try to fix some of it. The location is great og breakfast fine.

Read some reviews about how nice this hotel looked on the outside but run down inside. Well it didnt looked too run down to me. Got a room for 5 overlooking the courtyard. Free inhouse private parking for hotel guest and i managed to park infront of the hotel entrance where i could see my car directly from my room....

The room is old, not too well maintained with moldy smell. Someone even left a plastic packet of finished beverage hung by the door at the jaccuzi area to "greet" us. *yucks* The jaccuzi seems overworked too. Limited breakfast spread. So, the only plus point of this hotel is the location. It is within walking distance to Jonker Street.
