We stayed for one night. Misleading ad by roadside. The actual room rate is about RM50 more than the large "special rate" signboard. The receptionist said the special rate applies everyday of the week, except on that day we check in. Hmmmm... Our room was uncarpeted. Settling in, we soon found that it was terribly dirty. The windows ledges and...

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during my business trip. Surprisingly, this hotel is much better than what I expected as the rooms are quite huge. At least, much better that the previous hotel that I stayed in Malacca. The reception staff is very helpful and friendly. Not hesitate to change the bath towel as minor water leaking inside...

We came here a few days sight-seeing and we had heard that this hotel was very nice. Well, it is very nice in some areas but in some other areas needs to change. The check in and service was very good, very pleasant staff. The staff are malay and did all they could to help when needed. The room on...

I have ordered the room with hard wood floor as per lonely planet's sugguestion. The room is dirty and I had to ask them to change bed sheet. The room looks really old. Internet was super slow at night. It is not so cheap as I paid RM200 for that. Not recommended.

We just wanted to spend a night in Melaka, and after an hour walk we found this hotel, which seemed ok for $60. The rooms are big, but apparently have no maintenance, so there was mould in the bathroom ceiling and the AC didn't work so well. Even worse than that was that the bed sheets hadn't been changed. We...

We book a hostel near Jonker street but was not what we expected. So we hunted around and found this cute boutique hotel. Had to bargain for the price because we were a group of 6. In the beginning they did not budge but eventually they gave us a discount because we stayed 3 nights all int he suite room....

My friends and I decided to visit Melaka spur of the moment on a Saturday, and after many calls, this was the only hotel that had two rooms for the four of us. I was hesitant after looking at the rating, and now I know why -- it's filthy. Our room had all kind of bugs all over it --...

“Don't bother to stay in a suite unless you love a spa bath, all the rooms are large but in a suite you also get a spa bath. We had one but didn't use it - wouldn't be surprised if it didn't work very well anyway!”
