    Exceptional stay! Highly recommended ”

    A little beautiful quaint hotel within the heritage area. A row of prewar houses nicely restored, located on a quiet lane yet still in the centre of attraction. Check-in and check-out was swift and easy. It’s one of the best value for a really nice little hotel I’ve never gotten. Room and bathroom are clean. Microwave, water dispenser, coffee, lounging area in the lobby. Some reviewers complained on the call to prayer coming from the mosque, but it didn’t bother me at all. Public carpark lots right in front of hotel and main street (parking rate: 80cents/hour, RM6 all-day parking; 8am-6pm). I’m so happy with my stay at Spices that I can’t wait to recommend it to my friends.

    Beautiful and cozy place to stay”

    I stayed in the loft room for 2 nights for 3 ppl. The space is enough for us to move around and relax. There is a balcony with the a space for 4 ppl. The room is clean. The bathroom is separated wet and dry zone. The famous place for food street, street art photo spot, good restaurants and cafe are within walking distance (china house, le petit four, Kimberly street food hawkers). If you want to be away from noisy street, this place suits you. I definitely come back and stay here again.

    Loved it”

    Location is perfect. Walkable to tourist-y area but not too busy that you cant sleep at night. Its a bit hidden at a corner which is nice privacy-wise cos my friend stays at another boutique hotel around here and complained they couldnt sleep at night cos the road is busy and theres vehicles/people passing by all the time. Very cosy, clean, and feels a bit home-y. Spacious room too, my kids could run around the room without bumping into each other

    Really spiced up our day”

    Our first time here, we booked a family loft and a family room. When we first entered the lobby for check-in - we already fell in love with the ambience and concept. Everything was just instagramable . They have coway water filter at their lobby very convenient indeed. Staffs were friendly during check-in and check out. The loft room was just nice. My family really loved it. Good size, s really clean and comfortable. The water pressure was good. In fact, everything was perfect. Will repeat again next time.
