The best choice in Melaka”

Although I only travelled alone, I chose this apartment as my accommodation in melaka. The price is quite affordable for a solo traveller and it's really quiet and of good conditions. You can enjoy the gym and swimming pool with no additional charge by using your room key. Although it has a short distance about 20mins walk from the apartment to Jonker Walk. However, using grab to book a car is quite cheap and just about 5 mins can reach Jonker. I strongly recommend tourist who are travelling in Melaka choose to stay here.

Clean and New Homestay but Bad Check In Process”

The homestay was very clean and very new and well kept. Swimming pool was clean and well maintained. However, the checking in process was horrible. It was raining heavily and we had to park by the roadside and contact the person in charge to enquire where to check in and to obtain the room key. We weren't even told that there was a shaded car park below the hotel until we noticed it ourselves. Apparently, there is a small shop lot opposite the hotel (which was hard to recognize without any proper signage). Suggest that the checking in process to be improved further. Very happy with the room and facilities. The air con in the room was not very cold. Suggest to improve this too, lifts were also dirty and plastered with construction materials.

Farel was extremely helpful throughout our entire stay. We made an honest mistake of booking 2 rooms instead of 1, and he went out of the way to call up his superiors and even spoke to Agoda customer service which eventually refunded us back the charge for the extra room! Room was really spacious and clean and they basically have everything you need. The view from the master bed room was stunning, nothing much we could have asked for. It makes us feels like home. Only downside is that there are no Wifi available in the unit.

It is a self-check in apartment. Near to every tourist attraction. Oh! and there are like 3 blocks of bubble tea shops next to the apartment (yeay!). The door are hard to lock/ unlock since your room key are welded to the access card. some tips: if you put the water bottle in the fridge (even without opening it), you still have to pay. overall it is a value for money.

The unit have spacious space. For a living room, kitchen and masters. But, for second bed, not really suitable for adults/couple. And the bathroom, got water heater and all, great since i got a baby on the trip, but the toilet kinda tight. Am xxl in size thus the toilet is not really comfortable. The kitchen utensil provided, except scissor/knife. Got water heater and refrigerator. The terms and condition is lengthy, not visible through Agoda though. The check in&out process is quite simple. Living room is spacious, if you bring Toto, you can fit more adults as got air conditioning and fan in living room as well.

Very clean and nice environment. Spacious and airy twin bedroom apt. Minor improvement is to have a curtain for shower area to minimise wet flooring. But as for the apartment parking, it would be helpful to have arrow signage, as ascending a long ramp and facing a flat wall, does not indicate to driver to make a sharp left turn. Likewise for descending ramp, being as narrow and prone to car scratches.

Bad Experience stay”

When we reached the location/the building trying to check in for our room. There is no reception counter for The wave residence. Their reception counter was at another building which is opposite building across the road. Next when we where assigned to the room and we got our key and we check in, room was nice and high floor with nice city view. The TV channel was not able to see and try to search for other channel was showing no signal at all, not a normal TV channel that can watch. 3rd days morning before we checking out at 10am, we wanted to take shower before we leave Melaka to next destination. Guess what? All water from the tap and shower head was light green in colour (same like sugarcane water). So i when don't to the reception to inform them how come the water colour is like that? The unfriendly reception told me that they have no idea for that also? and next he told me he need to check with the main building tenant to fine out??no more staying here.

We work hard to deliver an exceptional guest experience, and it’s apparent in this case, we fell short. At the time, you were staying with us, TV channel was not in service and experience dirty tap water during your last day stay. For the inconvenience, it caused, I am sorry.

Unit is quite nice and comfy, equipped with items that we would normally need, including kitchen stuff. This place is mostly great. Worth the money. One small thing to comment - found quite some small ants on the bed in the smaller bedroom, which is not good as I have a 7 month old baby sleeping with me. Other than that, everything else was great! Would recommend this to others too.
