This boutique hotel made use of every inches of the place for the comfort of their guests. Small room but compensated with middle-high decor and deluxe shower concept. Perfect for solo or duo travellers that are looking for affordable and satisfying short stay.

For the price, this is a great little hotel. Don't be put off by the ramshackle approach. Inside it's clean and comfortable with helpful, friendly staff. Be warned, many of the rooms have no outlook, just a little atrium and some have no windows. We went for a larger one with a balcony and were very glad. Can't say we'd have sat out as it's not a romantic view! But gives you a sense of space and somewhere to dry clothes. Efficient use of space to turn reception into a breakfast area.

Dear Lindy L, Thank you for taking the time to review the Gingerflower Boutique Hotel. We hope you had a great stay with us. We are indeed a heritage boutique hotel housed in a turn-of-the-century Peranakan conservation townhouse located with the UNESCO World Heritage site of Melaka. As such, many of the original features of the building have been beautifully restored and preserved, and in keeping with the original Dutch-Straits Chinese architecture, many of the rooms have windows that look into the original airwell atrium space within the building. There is only one room in the hotel with no windows - this is due to the architecture and conservation status of the building. The description of the room is mentioned in the booking engines, so that guests are aware that this particular room has no window and can choose to avoid booking it if they prefer. Staying at the Gingerflower Boutique Hotel is indeed akin to staying in a fragment of history. However, so that all our guests have a comfortable stay, we have ensured that all the ensuite bathrooms are modern and contemporary, clad with Italian white marble and fitted with rain showers. It is great to hear that you were very glad to have chosen our larger room with a balcony with a view of the Malacca River. It does provide a sense of space, and even somewhere to dry clothes. We are happy that you have found our hotel to be of good value, and also that it is in a great location. We hope that you had the opportunity to walk to Jonker Walk and to many of the other places of interest (such as Christchurch, Dutch Square, the Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum) which are minutes away from the Hotel. We would love to have you stay with us again when you are next visiting Melaka. Many thanks again, and with warm regards, Jo

I booked this boutique hotel from recommendations in the Lonely Planet. Room was smaller than expected and no windows except for a shutter to a tiny courtyard. Nice comfortable bed and pillows was a plus. Breakfast was limited and lacked variety. Pastries were stale. Staff pleasant but could be more proactive towards guests. Location great to china town, cafes and market.

Dear 561nicp, Thank you for posting a review of our hotel. We are very sorry to hear that your room was not to your liking, but we are glad to hear you found the bed and pillows nice and comfortable. Our hotel is a heritage hotel, and is housed in a beautifully restored conservation Peranakan townhouse. We have preserved many of the antique features that make up the unique architecture of the building, such as the antique Peranakan tiles, frescoes and airwell. In keeping with the original Dutch-Straits Chinese architecture, some of the rooms have windows that look into the original airwell courtyard space within the building. Our hotel does have rooms where the windows face the outside (street view), and we will be very happy to accommodate you in such a room in the future. Please simply let us know upon making a reservation. We will feedback to our chef regarding your comments on the breakfast. We sincerely apologise for the shortcomings as this is not our usual standard. We will certainly look into this matter. Our location close to Jonker Walk and many of Malacca's historical and cultural places of interest and famous food places makes our hotel a convenient location to stay. We hope you were able to explore on foot many of the sites that make Melaka a unique place to visit. We thank you again for choosing to stay with us and we hope to welcome you back soon. With warm regards, Jo

A great location one street back from Junker Walk. A single width shop house so the rooms are off a long corridor. Some of the rooms only have windows to internal courtyards and are also quite small, however, they are priced accordingly. Our room was a delux room and had a small balcony that over looked the river, which made it very bright and cheerful. The staff are very friendly and helpful, Ripon, who cleans the rooms was always sparky. Breakfast, included, is a mix of local dishes and toast and pastries, and is OK, but we preferred to venture out and eat at one of the many local establishment that open for breakfast.

Dear 680tonyw, thank you for taking the time to leave a great review for us. The Gingerflower Boutique Hotel is indeed a turn of the century conservation Peranakan shophouse, and we have preserved these features and architecture befitting of it being in a UNESCO World Heritage site. The rooms with windows looking into the internal courtyards (airwells) are part of this historical architecture. We are really happy to know that you have enjoyed your room, and that our hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Please let us know if you are coming by Melaka way again in the event that we can help you out with planning your trip. We would love to have you back at our hotel again. Many thanks again and warm regards, Joanne
