“Poorly Maintained”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Pros: good budget price, and friendly staff

Cons: wifi only works downstairs, wallpaper peeling off walls, windows unsealed with mosquitoes and other bugs entering the room, only one SMALL blanket for two guests, towels provided were old and musty, bathroom clean but rusty

We had the triple room with shared bathroom. The room was basic but did the job, the walls were quite thin so you could hear some of the other guests from time to time but as seasoned travelers we just popped our ear plugs in at night! The wifi also didn't stretch to our room but this wasn't a major issue for us. The bathroom was fine - hot water and a semi powerful shower. The location was ideal - 5 minutes from jonker walk but without the noise from the busy street. You get what you pay for so don't be expecting a 5* hotel! The real gem about this place is the staff, Mr Lee the manager went out of his way to show us around Chinatown and pointed out all the best local places to eat (the Indian round the corner is amazing!), the other staff were also great and really helpful in directing us around.

We stayed in the triple room with shared bathroom. It was a small but clean room with aircon. Very nice owner. He showed us the good places to eat and he even drove me to the doctor when I was ill. Good location, good price.

The location is good, near with the jonker street. I would recommend the rooms with attached bathroom. Bathrooms and toilets were clean throughout our stay, with hot water and rooms were tidy as well.There is wifi and the signal is strong enough. There is no elevator so some people might find it troublesome.
Staff provide good service and helpful.

Good services and take care of customer's needs as well. Hotel security is safe, it's complete with full alarm system. The location is convenient, and won't be disturb with noisy environment at night. Will still choose this hotel if I'll travel to Malacca again.

Travel with my sister and my daughter, thru Agoda I booked one room for 3 persons, share bathroom. When we arrived, we found out that our room is in 3rd floor (wooden under the roof ) and bathroom is in 2nd floor so we decided to add money to have a room with bathroom Inside. Next day we were given a room in 2nd floor, small and very dirty, the floor was wet by aircon, the curtain in the bathroom is 2 newspapers so after 2 nights we asked to move to ground floor. We were given a room for 2 persons, difficult to sleep 3 of us on 2 singles bed but no choice we preferred to stay in this last room because of the cleanliness.
Disappointed with the management of this hotel, although the location is good, near Jonker walk...

Room Tip: Upstair, the rooms has no isolation, wooden dirty and you can hear all noises . Downstair the rooms...

Just a block or so off jonker street near the river so it's central to everything but quiet. I had a double-room with fridge, tv, and bathroom. The room was more than adequate for the price (90 ringgit). Staff are also friendly and helpful.
