It is everything they set out to be, a fairly priced hotel with a river view and very near to Jonker Walk.

My 3 days 2 night stay in RC Hotel was excellent. I booked an executive room on agoda.com but i did not ask for a king size bed because i was not aware that I can put in a special request during booking. I was disappointed when the room i got was a twin bed arrangement. I informed the reception and the lady on duty immediately put me at ease by looking for a room with king size bed for us. We were so happy when she upgraded us to a room with river view and a super king bed. During our stay, she answered our many enquires on how to get to different places of interest. We are really very appreciate of her help. We had our dinner in the hotel during our first night stay and the food tasty. We also enjoyed the ala carte breakfast on Sat and the buffet breakfast on Sun morning. Another plus point is that the hotel is close to Jonker street. Overall an enjoyable stay. We would definitely recommend out friends to stay in the RC hotel.
A weekend Getaway”
I booked 3 nights for a deluxe room and was upgraded to executive deluxe (FOC). Room was big, clean and bed was very comfortable. They even have 3 options for pillows which amazes me. The hotel's back faces the river, beautiful scenery. Get information from May at reception. She's very knowledgeable for directions and food recommendation. Breakfast was average. Nothing fantastic. A la carte from menu. Boat rides can be booked from the hotel at RM10.90. Do it in the evening where it's cooler. It's less than 10mins walk from RC Hotel to Jonker Street. Walking distance about 20-30mins (depending on pace) to Hatten Hotel, Equatorial Hotel, Makota Parade and Pelawan Dataran (shopping centre). The night markets in Jonker Street operates in the evenings, every Friday and Saturday. Will definitely come back again to RC Hotel.
i would highly recommend RC Hotel to people, the hotel is not very big but they have extremely comfortable room especially the bed! big enough and comfortable. very clean room with all the necessity especially bathrobe which most of the hotels does not have. Love the toilet, shower area is separated with a door so that i don't wet the floor during bathe. I had nasi lemak for breakfast and especially love the rendang chicken serve that morning. Although there is no aircon at the lobby, the morning breeze gives me a very comfortable and relaxing feeling! very convenient too, 5 mins walk to jonker street and food all around. thank you for the service! i will definitely be back!
peaceful and friendly hotel in a great location”
We loved our spacious and quiet room on the 3rd floor with a sitting balcony overlooking the river. The bed was big and comfortable and the shower had good pressure. We enjoyed having breakfast by the river and walking along the river path. The hotel can arrange river cruises as it has its own boarding point. Lots of nice restaurants and cafes within easy walking distance and Jonker street night market is only a short walk away. We stayed 3 nights which was about right for us. All the staff was extremely friendly and made sure we had a lovely time. We recommending staying at the RC hotel.
Good Location, good staff”
This hotel is located within 10 mins walking distance to Jonker Walk and the famous chicken rice ball restaurant. It is quite new but i think it's refurbished from an old hotel because it didn't look new in the bathroom. The room we stayed in is smaller than how it looks in the picture. And there is a foul smell coming from the bathroom. Hotel staff were very helpful and nice. Limited breakfast selection but taste good. This hotel doesn't provide parking space within the premise, so if you drive there, parking can be a problem. We were lucky to find a parking lot right opposite, by the street. Didn't feel safe but the hotel guard helped to keep an eye on it. Overall, the stay with RC hotel is alright and I'd come back again if I ever visit Melaka again.
Pleasant stay in a cosy hotel”
Had a pleasant 3-night stay with toddler in tow. Check-in and check-out were fuss-free. Room was always well cleaned by the time we returned in the late afternoon. Location is ideal for those who want to explore the historical streets nearby, including Jonker Walk. What I liked about the RC Hotel is that it isn't too high density in terms of rooms, while being a few notches above a small guesthouse or backpackers inn.
Clean and Convenient”
Totally enjoyed our stay at RC Hotel. The hotel is located behind Jonker St, thus making it very convenient. The staffs were friendly and helpful. My wife and I enjoyed our stay at RC Hotel. The only drawback is the lack of parking places, but with Jonker St being a Heritage Zone this is to be expected. They have a security guard that will assist you with parking if you are looking for one.
Very happy with my stay :) ”
My stay at RC hotel was a really pleasant experience. The room was spacious and clean, nice big bathroom with a rain shower. Bed was very comfy and many pillows to choose from. :D Their front office manager a Miss May provided excellent service too. Thankful for her help and friendliness to all the questions me and my travel companion had. Good location to the Jonker, heritage area. It's not smacked at Jonker street, just a 3 min walk to Jonker, so i appreciated the quieter location it was at. It was also only a 10min walk to the Dataran Palawan mega mall.
Lovely spot, nice rooms, nice staff”
We loved our stay at RC Hotel! The price fluctuated quite a bit, but in the end we were happy with what we paid. The rooms are quite spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Also enjoyed having breakfast outside near the river in the mornings. Easy walk to everywhere or a quick Grab ride for things further afield. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Great Getaway, nearby attractions”
Near attractions; jonker street, malls, historical monuments, nice stroll along the river etc. Nice little hotel, quiet & peaceful unlike huge hotels with throngs of tourists. Staffs were pleasant & helpful. Our stay was indeed a pleasant one. Value for money. However, breakfast could be better. Our Saturday morning breakfast was a la carte set with free flow of fruits, croissants & drinks. Sunday breakfast was better; buffet spread although taste could be better for Malacca standard. Enjoyable stay nonetheless. :)
The best hotel ever”
For a 3 star Hotel, this is a great hotel, the location for the hotel is near to jonker which is the best, the receptionist ilham is the best, I highly recommend this place but if you're travelling with car, you need to find your own parking space, probably cuz of the location and not the hotel fault. I've read the review for this hotel before I choose this hotel and everything is great and not like what they say, staff is really friendly and most importantly is, the price, my room is a superior room and I pay Rm 88 for 1 night so what you pay is what you get, believe me that..
Dear Raihan, Thank you for your review and rating. We are glad that you had a great stay. We look forward to seeing you again. Best Regards, Online Reservation, River Cruise Hotel.
Good stay at RC”
Had a good stay at RC. Room was big and clean and comfortable. Walking distance to Jonker Street.. nearby tourist attractions and shops. The staff were very friendly, quick and polite. Room was very nice and clean. I enjoyed my stay there and will definitely come back again.
Nice hotel, great location...only one complaint”
We had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly and attentive and worked to ensure you were pampered from the moment of your arrival by providing a refreshing welcome drink and cool towel with a jar of cookies at reception. The facilities were clean and clearly reflected the newness of the hotel in a positive way. The location was fabulous if you want to be near Jonker Street. Sitting at the outdoor cafe/bar on the river at the end of the day also was a wonderful way to relax. My only complaint is that a rather strong smell of sewage permeated from the drains in the bathroom. I was told this often is the case when it rains, which it did while we were there. However, the sewage smell was present even before the rain and rather detracted from our time in the room. Regardless, it was a lovely hotel and I'm not sure if the sewage smell is something you just have to deal with in all establishments or if it was specific to our room.
Love our stay at this hotel!”
My family and I had a wonderful time at RC hotel! Staff were very helpful and friendly and location is convenient. Will definitely return here when I visit Malacca the next time!
Good Location, Comfortable Stay, Friendly Staffs”
Location: Walking distance to Jonker Street Carpark: This was a concern initially as from forums many said there's only 2 lots and they are usually reserved. But the hotel staff managed to secure lots for us with security guards. Overall safe and convenient, car is parked just outside the hotel. Room: Big, clean and comfortable. Staff: Friendly Overall a good stay, will definitely recommed RC to all my friends and family. :)
Great location boutique hotel”
We loved this little boutique hotel, situated right by the river. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Lovely staff. Great location, close to main attractions. Good restaurant on site. We would definitely recommend RC Hotel.
Fast check in. Very friendly staff. Great location - easy access to all the historical sites. I took the river suite, beautiful view of the river. Will definitely be staying here again. A hotel can make or break a holiday at times. RC hotel made my holiday a great one!
Exceptional with High Standards”
We had a very comfortable stay at RC Hotel: cozy bed, soft pillows, clean bed sheets, above expectations customer service. Location is perfect too. The walk by the river to the tourists spots was relaxing and entertaining. Will stay here again if coming back to Melaka.
It took us a while to check in as it has a very small reception, probably as it did not have as many rooms. The guests before us had some deposit issues and the staff (trainee) was unable to handle very well. Although they had up to 2 other staff arrived to handle that issue, they completely ignored us until I insisted to be served and checked in. Rooms are truly spacious and luxuriously decorated but one of the rooms had bad smell emanating from the toilet. I wonder if it is becos hotel was converted from old shophouses. Anyhow, we are quite happy with the rooms so we didn't make an issue out of it. One of the rooms had a huge bed, bigger than a king-sized bed, comfortably sleeping 3-4 persons. Hotel was well located, most places was walking distances away n not too near crowded or noisy places. We walked everywhere to explore the heritage and historical sites. They served set breakfast and their restaurant faces the river, which was lovely to have a meal in the morning as it was very nice, charming and breezy and during the night for beer or wine. Staff are warm and friendly, just maybe not as well trained. Perhaps a professional Manager doing his rounds will help improve matters n straighten out their priorities. We love this hotel and if we ever return to Malacca, this with definitely be our choice stay.
Another historical stay in a nice hotel”
This hotel situated in the Jonker street and beside the lovely Malacca river. You can take a cruise from this hotel (they have their own jetty). Night scenery is lovely. They have skybar ont he fift floor with a splendid view of the whole Jonker street (old town). Nice stay.
