Charming peranakan theme hotel by the river”

Aava Malacca hotel lived up to expectations. A small boutique hotel a short walk off the bustling Jonker Street. A tranquil oasis, set by the malacca river. There is an infinity pool at the back - but we did not use it as the weather was rainy and cold. Breakfast served is simple local staple of either nasi lemak or fried bee hoon. Tasty! There was also white/wholemeal sliced bread which you can toast. On the last morning, perhaps due to smaller guest count - we could order whatever we wanted, ie eggs however and how many, with croissants. Staff were warm and friendly with always a ready smile. Will come again!

Classic Suite is Great”

We stayed at the Aava Malacca for 5 nights in September and the Classic Suite looked just like the photographs on the hotel webpage. The Aava is in converted Chinese houses on the riverfront in Malacca and the owners have done a magnificent job with the conversion. The Classic Suite had the advantage of being the room closest to the upstairs swimming pool, which was also beautifully clean. We had a lovely restful time at the Aava Malacca with it being only a short walk from the tourist attractions of Malacca. We found some lovely coffee shops and cafes nearby as well.

Great location!”

We enjoyed our stay at Aava Malacca, especially the location along the river. The only negatives were that the website showed a window, but a lot of the rooms either don't have a window, or they're internal windows (to the hallway, etc). They charged for juice and yogurt at breakfast, which, to me, are things that should be included. The room was 'okay', but nothing special. Our room had a connecting door, so you could hear pretty much everything going on in the next room. The staff were friendly and the lobby area was beautiful. If you can get a discounted rate then I highly recommend, but if you pay full price there is probably better value elsewhere.

Charming environment ”

Very good option for Malacca centre. Three minutes walk to busy centre, but no noise from the centre since just off the edge. In a charming area of small local shops, it’s a beautifully restored, atmospheric straits house ; the added bonus is it has a small swimming pool on first floor that looks over the river. Perfect for cooling off after being a busy, hot tourist ! Spotlessly clean throughout, super bathrooms, good breakfast & very helpful staff. Loved staying, thanks so much, Aava Malacca !!

Receptionist was of helpful as well and provide alot of information with details just to make sure we're well taken care of. Would definitely recommend this place to stay as it is also in the vicinity of heritage site you don't need a transport at all as most places are at walkable distance.

ABSOLUTELY WORTH THE MONEY FOR STAY”

Cleverly designed and restyled to its former glory. Nestled within a heritage row, close enough to Jonker Walk yet away from its hustle and bustle. Aava has a sense of calm and serenity within it.. being in the building brings inner calm and quiet that is so peaceful and restful. Direct hotel access to the riverwalk gives you great access to walk along the river to soak in Melaka's river splendour. Nice and friendly staff all around. Good and adequate breakfast spread to start your day. A must stay in Melaka!!

Amazing stay!”

Dear Aava Hotel, this isn’t the first time I am here in Malacca. I used to work here for two years and since then it had grew on me. I thought nothing more could surprise me until I stayed in your hotel. My husband wanted something more local and more cultured - and I came across your hotel. We stayed at the grand suite and it was all worth it. It was clean, quiet, and the location is just amazing. We enjoy walking around everywhere from your hotel. We love it so much we made a feature of your hotel in our newly established Instagram. Sadly you don’t have a profile, but I came here to give a review instead! We would definitely come back next time. . Till then!

Such a fantastic place to stay”

We arrived to a very warm welcome. The staff were lovely. Our room was lovely and perfectly situated. Everything about it was perfect. The room was spacious and well laid out. Very clean. The patio was perfect to sit out on and watch the river. There was a lovely infinity pool which we only found time to stick our feet in while our room was being tidied up the next day. It was a little on the cool side but as Melaka is quite hot and humid this was a lovely relief. There is parking across the road. Breakfast was simple but really nice. The coffee was good. Everything was clean and tastefully decorated. I recommend the Aava to anyone going to Melaka.

Amazing and beautiful hotel”

We love this hotel! The place is so pretty and unique in it's own way. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was good and spacious. Another good thing is, this hotel is located 1-2 streets away from Jonker Street (6 mins walk). You can park at the hotel parking or open space parking and just walk to Jonker Street. Breakfast spread was basic but the nasi lemak was really good. However, the hotel can improve by having additional drinks i.e Juice, besides serving coffee and tea only. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Pretty hotel with peranakan decorations. The grand suite room was big and spacious with 2 TVs and 2 basins in the toilet. It was a very comfortable stay for my family. The staff were polite and attentive. There was a car park opposite the hotel with limited lots. The distance to Jonkers was about 8 mins walk and there was a back door in the hotel facing the river. The only thing was that the shower water turned hot n cold intermittently in the morning and we have to keep adjusting the temperature. Breakfast was simple and good as a starter since we ate along while out. My children enjoyed the nasi lemak breakfast the most. Overall, a lovely stay for us.

Better than my expectation”

I booked the hotel although I was quite apprehensive about the quality and service it could deliver. The hotel provided parking space opposite the road which was a bonus. My children enjoyed the swimming pool overlooking Malacca River. There is no kids pool but the shaded pool is nice and the depth is OK for a 11 year old. The hotel is still new so the facilities in the room are not too worn out and feels new and clean. Breakfast is simple, not too fancy and there are choices between cooked food, bread, fruits and cereals with milk.

Excellent Penarakan Hotel”

I have left the sharing of the #Aavahotel to the last. This is a newly converted Paneraken house: stately, simple yet stylish. It's located at the upstream of Melaka river, near enough to the bustling Jonker Walk, but away from the din of trishaws, blasting their neon-lit techno-canto-bollywood pop music. The room was comfortable; some of the rooms don't have windows - I would call this a common features of converted boutique hotels in Melaka - which to me wasn't a problem as windows were hardly opened anyway. The breakfast was limited though, some nasi lemak and soft-boiled eggs with coffee, but again, why bother to compete with offerings within a short throw away?! As a whole, this is a great place to stay, as it's not too expensive, quiet and very convenient.

Interesting & beautiful decor is the highlight of this hotel. This is followed by the super comfortable room that was equipped with basic necessities which was convenient for us. Breakfast was nice. Jonker Street is just a 5minutes walk from this hotel. My elderly father enjoyed the proximity of this hotel & the nearest mosque. All and all, a very pleasant stay. A word of caution, please keep the receipts of any payment made safe. Just in case a member of the staff gets overwhelmed during check in & lost track of payments made.

I wish we could have stayed longer here, i would definitely stay here again. We took the Family room, on ground floor. The room was spacious, clean with everything you need. Location was good, staff were friendly and helpful with directions and good service. Simple, sufficient, made to order breakfast with great coffee! Absolutely loved the comfortable beds with many pillows too. Bathroom was huge with lovely bathtub. Toiletries had a beautiful scent. The hotel itself is well kept with beautiful peranakan antiques and decor in the lobby and breakfast area too. Jonker walk is within walking distance. Amongst many other restaurants and cafes. A most delightful place to stay for some R & T.
