This is a great little place to stay if you have a car and want to stay away from the congestion of Melaka town. It's located less than 5 minutes away from the Portuguese Settlement with limited local shops around and a restaurant right beside the hotel. There is ample public parking, but do note that from Mondays to Saturdays, you will need to buy parking coupons to pay for parking.
The room was kept very clean. I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom, the latter also kept spotless. Do note that it's a wet "Asian-style" bathroom, where the shower is located very close to the toilet. However, there is space to store things to ensure toiletries are kept dry, and there are also slippers provided for you in the room to use when you shower.
Downstairs, there are 2 bicycles for rent at a rate of RM10 per day. However, the bikes were not in great condition (their brakes need to be fixed) and the staff advised me not to rent them. Being stubborn, I did and survived (!), as I wanted to ride to the Portuguese Settlement. It was a good ride on a "China-style" bicycle - terrain is flat but do expect some traffic and on-road cycling.
