    Above average”

    I booked the family room, that comes with Jacuzzi. So the highlight of the stay is the jacuzzi in the toilet. The children absolutely love the jacuzzi. However, the downside of having a jacuzzi in the room is the musky smell of the room caused by the constant wet carpet in the room.

    As Historic as Melaka”

    This is a very old hotel that fit well with all the historical sites and museums of Melaka. We arrived very early, 4 hours prior to check in. The staff is very nice and helpful, they let us park our car in the lot and keep our luggage in the store room. We then walk to A Famosa, about 10 minutes or so from the hotel. From there you can explore all the historical site on foot. We did all the museum, Stadthuys, Christ Church, river cruise, Taming Sari Tower, and Jonker St. That is how near the hotel is to the major attractions in Melaka. We walk back to the hotel at night. (A word of advice., the road in some part of Melaka is narrow, some section do not even have pedestrian lane.) We arrive the the hotel, beautifully lit. It’s like visited another historical part of town. The room we have is spacious and clean. To our surprise, we also have a Jacuzzi waiting for us. Overall, it’s a wonderful place to stay in Melaka.

    Room carpet has smell and not well maintained”

    Room was not clean properly found mineral water bottle under the bed. Complained about the leak in the toilet and the cleanliness, they change us to another room. Dampness smell from carpet is not so pleasant. Don’t think I will stay here again. Location very good, right in the middle of the Melaka city, walking distance to hard rock and to jonker street. That’s the plus point

    Decent hotel and good location”

    The size of the room is nice unlike the rests of Malacca which is a little cluttered. It's close to the Malacca town, 15 mins walk, so it's not so jammed. The hotel parking has security gantry, somewhat felt safe since we drove from sg. the wifi speed and coverage is not splendid. There was only reasonable connection in 1 x 1 metre area in our 9 x 4 metres room.

    The place was awesome and value for money however last minute the hotel informed breakfast would not be served and will get refund. There is no any notice about it upon check-in. Other than that, it is nice location to stay.

    Pros - Right inside Malacca's Little India. Capitol Satay Celup is nearby. A few little shops and eateries all around the area. Lots of carpark lots. Love the jacuzzi. Cons - Cleanliness can be improved. Location wise not the best, but still acceptable.

    Great value from Sterling Boutique Hotel in Malacca”

    My wife and I spent 4 nights in The Sterling Boutique Hotel in Malacca in mid-April 2019. Superb value at a low cost. Extremely large and bright well-appointed suite-style rooms. Jacuzzi-style bathtub-shower complicates showers though water flow excellent. Staff cheerful and helpful. Good breakfasts I attractive roof top setting. Superb location very short walk from major museums, historical points of interest, Jonker Way and Melaka River. The Sterling was highly recommended to us and we certainly will recommend it highly to any visitors to Malacca.

    Very good”

    The room was quite big (Superior Family Suite) for 3 adults or kids (2 or 3 children). The room is clean but the temperature for shower cannot be adjusted. Luckily the water is warm enough for us. There is no iron and ironing board in the room. Still, you can use the iron and the ironing board at the corridor. The room air-conditioning is well maintained and can cool the big room. Their breakfast is quite good and you can choose from local food and western food. You can eat the breakfast at the indoor or outdoor at the rooftop. The best part is you can enjoy your meal while enjoying the city view from the rooftop. There is car park around the hotel and free access for the customer, but very limited. It is small but there is access card to enter the car park. If the car park is full, there is a private car park but you must pay RM5 per entry. In front of the hotel there is 24hr conveniences store and local bank. The hotel is not far from tourist attractions. You can walk or using public transportation. Overall the hotel is good, value for money and suitable for families. The surrounding is quite even though the hotel is beside the busy road. :)

    Gave only 1 room door access card when we had 3 adults. Not even 2 cards.”

    Staff were so unwelcoming to the request for an extra access card. Kept saying no more card and hotel management rules. If one member of the family is resting in the room and other goes out, with one key you cant leave the electricity and aircon on and rest cause the other person need the card to come back late. Lame excuses.

    Generously, spacious room for the money. Staff was especially attentive and helpful. Essential oil diffusers were around every corner, not sure what their purpose was? To cover up mustiness? Also had to call engineering to repair our shower fixture. Facilities were beginning to show wear & tear. Breakfast options were extensive, perhaps less is more mindset should be implemented, so quality could be increased. Overall this hotel met our needs for an overnight in Malacca

    Insufficient breakfast ”

    The hotel offers buffet breakfast from 7.30-10.30am, but after 9am you might not get any food. I have seen a group of 4-5 people being told the kitchen is closed. The hotel cooks only a tiny portion of each item; for example, 5-6 small pieces of chicken or fishes, pieces of 2-3 potatoes. So you will find the food containers always empty. Even the butter they put so small quantity that it finishes within minutes and you have to wait for them to refill again after few requests. I noticed most of the containers including the fish, chicken, squid and even simple soups (plain veg soups, they don't offer some good ones) are almost empty at 8am. Even if one stays in this hotel, I recommend to get a without breakfast option and eat somewhere else. AGODA should give its customer a breakfast not included option to book for this particular hotel.
