Staffs are friendly and professional. A staff named AV even gave a tour of the entire 6 rooms in the facility. Love the deco, felt very homely, actually it was the ex home of the Governor of Melaka. Definitely will come back again.
Nice Property but some location needs Upgrading”
The property is located very close to the Ayer Keroh turn-off and is far from Malacca. If you do not have a vehicle, it is difficult to get to and from Malacca if it is the purpose of visiting this locality. However, its location has its own merit; it is quiet because there are only 6 rooms in this big mansion. We were the only guests during our 1-day stay . The property is very elegant and nice, but it will be much better if we have come here with several groups of friends. The room that we stayed in is large, but there are obvious leakages on one part of the room. It has not been attended to , and should have been. There is a Jacuzzi bath in the room but the most disappointing part is that there is sediment in the system so it is shocking to see the debris in the bath after the water is drained. Regular cleaning should have been carried out. The person, Dai who attended to us is absolutely immaculate. He is helpful and willing to share. In general, it is a good experience.
Hidden gem in postcolonial Malacca”
The Kahaani is without exaggeration a unique former colonial governor's mansion skillfully transformed into an intimate hotel in a quiet corner just outside of historic Malacca. Rather than pick one of the many Malacca coast hotels available I chose The Kahaani for its proximity to lake Tasek Durrian Tunggal's historic mosque Masjid Datuk Machap (in the Chinese village of Kampong Machap Baru) where I attended a cultural event, but I did not expect such luxurious space, marbled and parquet floors, stately stairwell, high ceilings, nineteenth-century furniture, astounding mirrors, and the attentive hep of the staff which is nothing short of pampering. In the treadmill room I also discovered the Malay marble game Congkak and enjoyed playing several sets. I also had a chance to sample two exceptional restaurants in old Malacca which I recommend: the Kocik Kitchen (Nyonya Sino-Malay cuisine) where I sampled my first mangrove nut chicken dish and the shaved ice pandan desert, and the Parameswara Ikan Bakar in Umbai over the water, across from Pulau Besar island, where I had the best grilled fish ever. Without doubt the best hotel experience and most pleasant stay!
Our 1 night stand.”
Very nice interior ambience, clean and very friendly & helpful staff. Good place for a well deserve peaceful relaxation. Quite out of the city, therefore for shopping is not so convenient as it is about 30mins drive away. Also a good place for family gathering function.
Peaceful short gateaway”
I have no problem with the costomary suites room.. it is so spacious, clean and nice except few things as per below :- 1) water pressure in my bathroom sink was very slow. 2) No butler service as mentioned in the hotel website. I need to go down myself to the kitchen to get the hot water. 3) Phone in the room is not working to call for service. 4) wifi is very slow. My son need to go down to the hall to download his game. 5) No towels provided in the swimming pool area. I need to go up to get the towels. Location is good. Easy to look for restaurant and the attractions places.
Good price when you get it right”
This would be a hard-pressed place to get at a good price were it not for the special Agoda deals which allows you to snap up one of the rooms at a great cost allowing you to enjoy this mansion stay for a unique experience.
Superb! Must Try”
This used to be the official house of the Governor of Malacca. It has only six bedrooms and is managed by a hotel company. I realized later that the upper range rooms have better value at not so high price. The location is superb - near the highway, and near MITC, where there are plentiful of shops and attractions of Ayer Keroh.
More then just feeling at home it is a dream place”
Everything that you wish for is here, except for having a restaurant, but that is fine as we could drive out to get food and see Melaka town. It was a very nice stay and I look forward to coming back soon.
luxurious homestay experience”
Friendly and attentive staffs, clean environment and presidential suite style room. Feel like you own the whole mansion when only a few of you staying at this private yet out of town mansion. Make sure you've the phone number with you because the gate is closed most of the time, in case the bell doesn't work, phone call is the only way to get back to your room.
The hotel used to be the governor's house so there are only 6 rooms; 2 premier and 4 luxury. 1 premier and 1 luxury is on the first floor and the rest are on second. The furnishings were OMG AWESOME! Felt like a king. Getting the premier room gets you butler service and can have breakfast anywhere and anytime you want. GREAT for those on honeymoon or if family can book ALL 6 rooms, then you have the whole compound to yourselves...
fantastic stay with attentive staff”
The overall stay is fantastic with very good attentive staff who give you one on one attention. There is a very good personal touch when I was staying there & the butler service there is absolutely the best. Will definitely go back to stay again.
Great stay. Kak Ros is so nice and helpful.”
Paid rm300 for Rebana Suite. Huge luxury room, clean bathroom but no bathtub. Was the only guest staying at the time so practically had the whole swimming pool to ourselves. Kids enjoyed. Huge pool area for the little kids but still need close supervision as there were no barriers around the deep adult pool. Breakfast was served just in front of the suite door, overlooking the pool. But kinda dissapointed to be served roadside nasi lemak bungkus. But quickly made up by the americano upon request. Yes they have an espresso machine (at your disposal I believe, kak ros was so nice I felt shy to ask). We were also served orange juice and some traditional kuih.
clean and friendly”
Rooms are very nice and clean.
Fantastic residence, warm and friendly staff. Amazing grounds and amazing rooms. Only small downside was that it's a little bit of a drive from Jonker St and the main Malacca town (25min drive). However the residence and rooms more than made up for it.
Great for families and business travellers”
This little gem of a hotel allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of Melakka and to get a feeling for the lifestyle of the colonial era in a beautiful garden villa setting. Although it is a bit far from the inner city, taxis are quite cheap and the staff will call one for you (it is no problem to get a taxi in Melakka even in the early morning hours). The hotel is particularly recommended if you are attending some business in the MITC area. It is an easy and safe 10min walk along the main street (even though I didn't need to, because the staff went out of their way to drive me there). I would also recommend the place for families, since the garden/pool area is beautiful and the rooms are very spacious! (I think I had the smallest one and it was more than enough - much bigger than the picture suggests) Plus, the hotel feels like a luxurious museum and there are many things to discover for the little ones. Another bonus is the staff, which is very friendly and professional. If I really had to look for a minus point, I would perhaps say that the breakfast could have more variety. It is very tasty, but didn't change much for the few days I was staying there. If the hotel would change the breakfast every other day (and perhaps included more fresh fruit) it would easily get en even higher rating.
Loved the place, but be prepared for the state of the pool!”
I absolutely loved staying here and wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Kahaani again. However I will flag a few things so other travellers are not disappointed. The Kahaani is in Ayer Keroh which doesn't really have much going for it, BUT it's really easy to get a Grab car so that's not and issue. The room I was in was a bit tired in places, so it doesn't' pay to be hypercritical. The pool is amazing! But not properly maintained! I can understand that it would be a huge undertaking but this is the aspect that disappointed me the most. I am pool mad, LOVE them. The pool was cleaned just before I arrived, but still had quite a few floaty bits so I asked for the filter to be run, which improved things greatly. However, I still wouldn't put my head under as in the back of my mind I was still concerned about the water and the level of chlorination. Abang Zai and his Team were fantastic and couldn't do enough for me!
Stucked in time”
The room is so beautiful and comfortable that you will end up rolled up inside the comforter on the bed watching TV the whole day instead of going outside. The staff was super good. check-in here if you want to escape from your normal boring bedroom at home.
Nice place....friendly staff”
Recommended to stay if you are looking for an experience beyond reason.... have a feeling of at home. It has it own uniqueness and you can feel like staying at the palace. Very quite.... suitable for whom looking for privacy. Staff treat you like family.We love the place.
Low value for money ”
No doubt that room and building is pretty, but that's about it. The room has a strong musky smell, the aircond is too underpowered for suck a big room causing us to sweat the entire night, water from the tap was literally brown, breakfast was so so, and upon check out we found out Amex can't be used. For the amount we paid, which is slightly more than RM600, it definitely does not feel that it's worth the money. Don't think we would stay here again.
The Kahaani Hotels Review”
The Location is good as it inside housing area. Not much traffic.. very very near MITC and Malacca government department. I love their suite and their staff which is super friendly! I'm only disappointed that they have no in house chef for night or afternoon meal. This hotel was previously the Malacca governor house! So it quite exquisite. I love their hotel for their peacefulness as there only 6 Room available. It feel like it our own home. . . . But there are a few stuff that are spoil in their suite when i arrive.. but i have no much complain as its just minor problem
