“Poor Location, Dated and Poor Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2011

The hotel's decor is dated and equipment very old. The old CRT TV could barely hold a still picture. The pool was serviceable. Breakfast was barely acceptable and boring. The buffet dinner was cheap but bland. Overall, very poor food. Location wise, everything around the hotel except the 7-11 seems to close in the evening. If you wanted to eat something other than the poor hotel food, it is a very long walk or catch a taxi to town.

Room Tip: Roooms have shower over very high bath, probably unsuitable for the elderly or physically challenged...

If you needed to stay in Melacca and there was nowhere else to stay this hotel is clean and relatively quiet. It's price however implies a level of charm and service which is woefully lacking. The rooms are old and tired, with the furnishings worn and poorly functioning (no hot water, blocked sink, mouldy shower curtain). Service was civil but disinterested. Drinks in the bar were appaling. Sweet warm white wine which had clearly been open for some time. Overall a tolerable but disappointing experience.

Old hotel that has been around for decades. Despite going through renovation and refurbishment, it was still very disappointing. Rooms were old and the furniture was the same. The walkway was gloomy and the doors of the room have never been changed. Room equipped with a CRT television, probably 21". Certainly not a 4 star hotel as claimed by the hotel or written on many other travel agent website. A spiral drive up 2 storeys to the car-park, with no security barrier or toll-booth, meaning, anybody can just drive up there and park their cars, making security questionable. Room door security is via a magnetic swipe card and the same card is used to activate the electricity. Kettle was old and worn out too, with brownish stains inside.

Internet is chargeable at RM10/hour or RM30/day, which is very expensive. Lobby was nice and pretty, but I rather have them spending more money in the room than lobby.

Location is good though, less than 5 minutes walk from the scenic Malacca river and 15 mins walk to Jonker Street and Stadhuys. There is a convenience store right in front of the hotel, opposite the street.

Paying RM430 for a room at a hotel of such standards is just way too much. Lots of other better hotels in Malacca, especially those up and rising boutique hotels, which only cost a fraction of that price but twice the room comfort and facilities. Yes, it's true!

Room Tip: Not worth the money, for the Deluxe Room.

We went here for a short break, with friends. Check in ran smoothly. Breakfast not included in our stay and quite expensive, I thought. Rooms good we had a deluxe with jacuzzi bath, toiletries etc. The room was very big, clean, fruit plate was a nice touch. The pool area looked nice and could have done with a couple of repairs, ie some tiles broken around the grounds. They ran out of Jack Daniels, but did get a bottle for us. The disco was closed !!!, we were not informed about this and would have liked to use it. The hotel is very central and not far from the attractions in the area. We would return, but would like a better price with breakfast included.

very average hotel- nicest part of it was the lobby! The rooms are relatively clean and spacious. It is in a good location only 10minute walk from the city centre but in Melaka all hotels have a good location because the town is so small! There is free parking in a safe area which was the reason we chose the hotel. It is a little over priced for Melaka but they do a great breakfast! Nothing bad but nothing to write home about!

Room - decent but air con not that good. No qiblat signage. Bed single twin (superior) were not that firm and suppotive.

Toilet - basic amenities provided. Water pressure good. Hot water functional. Tub small - one size does not fit all. ;)

Pool - neither olympic sized nor suitable for serious swimmers. Big wading pool rather.
Jacuzzi available but small. Toddler's pool just sufficient.

Parking - limited on 2nd floor. Its free though. Might not fit if there's a big function.

Lift - parking lift leads to lobby and rooms. Perhaps hotel needs to beef up security by placing guards.
