    Strategic location, not so friendly staff”

    Had 1 night stay at this hotel, the room is clean and strategic location to tourist attraction & jonker Street, but the staff is not so friendly and super limited parking lots. If you are driving, suggest you to park in the noon near hotel and grab / walk out for dinner. Overall a pleasant stay.

    Quiet place within the busy tourist area”

    If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay away from the busy city centre but near enough to walk to the all the attractions (5-10mins walk), this is best place to stay. With its own pool backyard tucked away behind the busy main roads outside the palace's gates. Rooms are clean with basic amenities.

    Great Value....... Love it”

    this is one of the best value for your money, has a great location with almost all the historical places within the walking radius, the room is very clean and cozy, with a team of staff that is very friendly and helpful and most importantly not once i see a frowning face great job.... the only few things that i have an issues, 1st the wood floor arround the the pools i suggest the management take the initiative to properly repair or change the wooden floor since it's very dangerous to have a fragile wood that can cause serious injury, 2nd is leaves in the pool at least the management could assign someone to clean the pool from fallen leaves few time in a day, lastly please include more channel for the tv... overall this is still a great place to stay.... and would recommend it to other.... and will sure stay at this place again...

    Walking distance to Jonken street and local attraction (less than 10mins). However, walking back to the hotel at night can be quite dark even thou there are street lights around. Besides the location, everything else is great!

    Short and sweet stay”

    There is everything to love about this place and nothing NOT to like. Love the location which was just a stone throw away from Jonker Street. So once I parked my car, I was able to explore by foot. Staff was very friendly and very approachable. The room were super clean and love the layout, simple yet very tastefully done. I was given a room with the Garden View and I fell in love with it. Love the light that the huge window brings in. Breakfast was a bonus, to have something simple yet satisfying and convenient if one is lazy to go out and just want to enjoy their remaining stay. I would definitely return.

    Super clean with great view and helpful staffs”

    We stayed here for 1 night. The check-in process was quick, we were given a tourist map which covers most of the area. It only took few steps to the Holland Church and Jonker Walking Street which are the center of Melaka. The place really made up our time here. The view is stunning right over peaceful green garden. You have access to the swimming pool at the back of the hotel. Lobby area design is also cool. Definitely will stay here again when we are back to Melaka.

    My favourite parts are great location (just few mins away from jonker) and friendly staff. I also like that they have a pantry with drinking water provided. Provide parking, but on first come first serve basis, and the parking is actually not gated. Breakfast was very simple. The room was a little small, but clean room with nice view, overall it’s a pleasant stay

    For somewhere a bit different....”

    The Rucksack Cartel is an unusual hotel. The delightful rooms overlooking the nearby gardens are spacious and well equipt. Below there are different accom options off the central common area that had books, games and the outdoor pool. I found the wifi a little challenging to use and the walk home at night a bit spooky on my own, but this hotel is very close to everything while still being quiet.

Also didn't realise this hotel also has a swimming pool.Even better. Close to the centre of town( 5 minutes). Would definitely recommend.

    Enjoyable and relaxing stay”

    We booked a premiere deluxe king room but was upgraded to a garden suite upon arrival! Everything was great. Room was clean, bed was comfy, great garden view, staff was professional & friendly. It's located near to jonker street yet far enough to have a quiet night sleep away from the busy streets. Several other reviews did mention about limited choice for breakfast but it wasn't a problem for us cz whatever was served was enough to fill our tummies and satisfy our taste buds. There are also plenty of Instagrammable corners around this place so good news if you're an avid social media user (haha). There were also books and magazines provided so u can chill by the pool/at the lobby with a book if you'd like. Parking was kinda limited...But we managed to secure a parking spot by arriving slightly earlier than the check-in time. Since we travelled by foot throughout the rest of our stay in Melaka, our car just stayed put at the parking area. Overall I enjoyed my stay here very much.
