Good location

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Dec 2023
Good location, convenient for bars and restaurants and yet quiet. We had a twin room on the first floor, beds comfortable but room small. Main issue is soundproofing, you can hear when someone upstairs is using the bathroom. But, as you're out for most of the day, it's not a big problem. We did feel it was a bit pricey for what we got though, maybe because it was during Xmas.

Checked in on 2/12/23 with 1 standard twin room, the experience is totally bad.

1. Super limited parking lot provided

3. Bedbugs found on the bed

Reviewed 4 December 2023

Stayed for 2 nights, the location is awesome; tucked away at the back of St Paul's Hill, 5 minutes walk from the busy Jonker Street. The room is clean, spacious with a brutalist design. Small complain about the concrete countertop that served as rack for towels, a table, a wash basin counter and a divider between the bed and the glass-walled bathroom; I hurt my leg by accidentally kicking at the sharp edge of the counter top leg, while get down from the bed. The edge of the countertop showed sign of "chipping" meaning I am probably not the first person to have kicked it. I booked the room with the back alley (it's the main entrance to the hotel) view. The parking is free, the WiFi is free too but unstable and kinda slow. Overall, a good stay and won't hesitate to return again and hopefully they deal with the countertop design.

Room tip: Best suited for self driving. E-hailing might be difficult due to Jonker Street blockade.

The staff and the location of the hotel are great! Our room was quite small, though, so we had to be innovative to store our big luggage, and we wish a (folding) chair could be provided. We had to always sit on the bed or go downstairs to the common area.

The hotel is tucked not far away from the heritage core of Melaka. It's well kept and very chill. You can easily walk to Jonker and any other locations such as bunga raya from the hotel. The different streets to and from the hotel are well lit. There are also some interesting local food near by for example Teo Seng Teochew Porridge, Kwang Ah Kopitiam, and Hong Seng Wonton Noodle. There are about 8 free yellow box parking lots outside of the hotel. I had a lovely experience here.
