A hotel with character, charm and so much to give in not so much space! Very elegantly designed, it sits unnoticed on a busy street. BUt upon going it, it's like you've teleported to some ancient Malaccan place. Everything in this hotel screams art! The small things is what they go for and they do it in a BIG way!...

Hotel decorations are unique and detailed. Quite a bit of antique and antique-like collections, which made the hotel worth visiting. However, as it's a boutique hotel, the compound is rather small. The room is relatively small as well for the price.

I chose The Settlement Hotel as my place to stay during the weekend trip to Melaka. It was an amazing choice! Such a different experience than staying in the busy and noisy Jonker Street area. The place is located near the Portugese Settlement in Melaka, and just 5 minutes driving from the main attractions of the city. The hotel claims...

Had a wonderful 3 nights stay last week at The Settlement Hotel. Though nestled in the bustling city of Melaka, the hotel was unexpectedly quiet and soothing. We arrived at approximately 9am, driving from Singapore and pre-registered for a fast check-in. Was told to come back at 1pm and sure enough, the room was prepared for us. The front desk...

The Settlement Hotel has earned my five-stars rating thanks to the friendliness of the staffs, excellent location (a lil out from crowded and busy Dataran), astounding surroundings with relaxing decorations and the cleanliness of the room and hotel itself. Mind you the pool is a dip pool which I think is not recommended for infants. Breakfast was awesome, I get...
