“Lousy Breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

This is my 2nd stay at this hotel. location is good, the space of room is small, I think the hotel need to have a Big renovation for its room. Furniture looks old and dirty, the door of the wardrobe spoil, i can't even open it. The breakfast is the worst one I had in my life, the variety is so limited, and the food taste bad. Noodle, eggs and even the toast bread are all burned. I just wonder what type of chef the cafe had employed, the food taste worst than the one I paid at other roadside coffee stall. Maybe this standard is only mean for barget hotel.....

The great thing about this hotel is its location, just 5 min from Melaka's main attraction Jonker Street. Just walk along jalan Portugis (the road in front of the hotel) fo 5 min and you reach Jonker Street, a must-go for tourist to Melaka. If you drive, this is a good place to stay, park your car here and just walk to Jonker street, instead of getting into the traffic jam and wasting hours before you can get out! The room is small but adequate, everything is basic but sufficiently clean, for RM 108 on week day (or USD 36), what else can you ask for? And this price is plus breakfast for two. Yes, the breakfast is relatively simple but adequate, and the coffee is rather good! So even though i have something else to comment on, but consider the price and the location, i don't want to complain anymore!

My trip to Malacca, staying for just 1 night in Family Room. The space of room just enough for us to fit 3 person attached with big bathroom. Lobby a little bit crowded as they are doing some renovation. These hotel have elevator and provide wi-fi in room.

Walking distance about 10 minutes to Jonker Street,returning to hotel a bit confused as we lost on our way to hotel ..:D

Overall, room and bathroom that we've stayed were clean and satisfied with these hotel.

I have stayed here everytime I travel to Malacca annually. For me, this hotel's location is good. It's only 5 minutes from Jonker Walk. For the rooms, it's reasonably priced. The rooms have been upgraded from since the 1st time i stayed there- they added kettle (previously, we just have to take water from the water cooler outside the rooms), hair dryer.
There's astro channels on TV too.

The bad part is that the parking space is limited and the breakfast has minimum varieties.

Location first , price second. For visitors that unfamiliar with one-way roading system and with minimum patience in finding parking space, this would be an excellent choice as it's only 5min walk to Jonker St. Should incorporate sheer curtain layering for privacy and allowing natural light. Soiled and dirty carpet need immediate attention - not possible to walk bare foot after shower. Plentiful hot water with rain bath showerhead, big plus. Weak wifi signal (Free). Breakfast provided were below average , but did enjoyed their strong thick malacca-coffee, should provide fresh milk instead of coffeemate. Adequate Tv channel. Part of reno in need for touch up ie toilet door. Ashley spotted in roon although we did not asked for smoking room , luckily room did not smell itself.

Room Tip: Pick this only for conveniet of location.

The hotel gave me a room that I am quite satisfied with the bed and bathroom during I am checking-in. However, I was choked after few minutes in the room and decided not to stay in this hotel due to the bad cigarette smell in the room. This hotel does not have smoking & non smoking room.

When I was back to lobby and ask for checkout, the manager came immediately and asked their staff show me a better room. At the end, I was stayed back in Hallmark Hotel and pretty satified with the room.

The Hallmark Cafe that just beside to the hotel charging a very reasonable price for the food.

Overall the staff are friendly and dedicated, especially the manager. The price of the room is cheaper than the hotel in town centre.

Stayed for 1 night at hallmark for its location as it is near to jonker street....less than 10 mins.

Managed to secure a family room which is rather spacious despite having 2 double beds. Room is not exactly clean. It is quite well-used and run down. Some of the fixtures are either spoilt or not working. The carpet has seen better days. Clearly the rooms need refurbishment. The beds are creaky and lacks support. We had backaches after sleeping on them. The air-conditioner is not working well too. Bathroom is big though. By the way, they are now renovating part of the lobby. Hopefully they refurbish their rooms too.

Front desk staff is quite efficient and pleasant and check in was a breeze. Breakfast provided is measly and definitely not for fussy eaters.

There's a eatery in a seperate building just next to the hotel but it is only opened for business at night. We enjoyed the Chinese seafood dinner there and it is reasonably priced. We will come back for the food if not for the hotel stay.

Overall I would rate this hotel as average. Their rates are quite attractive but I would rather pay a bit more for better room comfort and amenities in other hotels.
