Not a 5 Star Rating!
Checked in for 2 rooms around 3pm but was only given 1 room. I need to wait an hour plus for the other room to be ready. I got the room around 4.30pm. What a joke for a 5 star rating hotel! If I encounter it another time, I will not stay here anymore :p

Best hotel in Malacca
I always stay here on trips to Malacca and wasn't disappointed this time. First time I've driven to Malacca and the free basement car parking was great.
