    Located right next to the river and only a short relaxing walk to Jonker Street. The night view was definitely worth it. The bed was extremely big and room was comfortable. However the hot water in the shower didnt seen to he working and the ventilation in the room was really loud.

    The hotel is located at riverside and few min walk to all attraction around the heritage area. The breakfast is limited and they only have 6 main dish to order and throughout my stay my children didn't get the pancakes for breakfast which is one of the dish in the menu.

    Ants in 313”

    The pros - We liked the big rooms and strong air conditioning. There was also a small balcony. The bathroom is also spacious, with good water pressure and consistent hot water. The beds were comfortable, with super singles in the room where we had twin beds. It is also near to Jonker Street (about 7 mins walk) and you can take a pleasant walk along the river just behind the hotel. There is a lift so it’s good for groups with luggage or elderly folks. The cons - the WiFi was intermittent. Out of the 2 rooms we booked, 1 room had an odour which smelt like bad drainage. Another room 313 had an infestation of ants like another reviewer mentioned earlier. It seems they couldn’t or didn’t take care of the problem. The tiny black ants didn’t bite, but it was disgusting to see them at the pantry table (where you find the kettle and coffee/tea) in the top . They were on the bed as well. There was also a perpetually damp patch on the carpet near the closet.

    The staff is really nice, help me a lot, thankful to them. The location is also good, very close to the Jonker street. The only thing I suggest to improve is the kettle in my room, the bottom is black. I guess it was burned by previous guest, need to change a new one. But it did not make me trouble because the pretty nice staff help me to get the hot water when I need it. Thanks for staff again.

    Plenty rooms for improvement”

    Couldn’t rest/sleep well due to poor air ventilation, stains on wall, leaky air-condition with odd odour, and doors are rusty. Kitchen fumes crept into room at 6am and whole room was filled with pungent smell of garlic. Only one card per room, and hotel unable to accommodate more. Two bathroom slippers supplied and will charge for third pair. Basic service. Only consolation were the spacious bed, and close location to jonker street by foot. Could be better if only they’d try harder.

    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..

    Excellent location but nothing else”

    Location is this hotels biggest asset. It’s right by the river, historical attractions, numerous cafes and restaurants, malls and Jonkers street, all this my wife and I visited on foot. During our 3 days and 2 nights stay, the only time we needed a vehicle was when the concierge arranged a taxi to bring us to the bus station. Check-in process was a bit rough from the receptionist and when we arrived to the hall for breakfast I had to look for the waiter who was busy on his cellphone. Housekeeping made sure our room was clean throughout our stay and I’d also like to commend the receptionist/concierge during our check-out who took the initiative to arrange a taxi to get us to our next destination. The in-house restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. I never tried them for lunch and dinner but don’t bother getting breakfast. The pastries and fruits are all-you-can eat and you order hot breakfast entrees from a menu. You’re better off checking out the many cafes nearby otherwise you’ll question the freshness of the fruit and bread selection. This four-story hotel has a colonial look and adds to the historical vibes of Malacca itself. Its quite beautiful on the exterior, the lobby is decent and the tiny, slow elevator needs much improvement. Our room that we booked was spacious, even the bathroom was quite spacious but during our stay we never had a steamy hot shower, lights were too dim and our closet emanated a musky odor that could never be aired out. At least the AC worked and the bed was decent. Value for this hotel is in its location and nothing else.

    The best hotel located at the most tranquil yet culturally filled spot in Melaka.”

    Perfectly situated in the quiet area of Jonker, it's only a 10-min walk towards the busy Jonker Street Market. And during your walk, you will definitely see so many cafes and bistros you m̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ ̶w̶a̶n̶t̶ must try (the hotel is next door to the WIld Coriander, which is a great place to brunch). Tip: I booked the top floor balcony room for a weekend: buy some food and spend the early mornings with a cup of coffee on the balcony.
