“Spacious & Nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013

Had stayed there for at least 3-4 times almost every time I visit Malacca, prices I would consider reasonable. Hotel Lobby looks grand, very professional too. Staffs at the reception are friendly, car park was big enough & security was pretty good I was pretty comfortable with having my car parked there. I would in fact recommend the hotel to have the carpark covered for their guests easy access.

Rooms are big bed are comfy with ample pillows given, bathrooms are clean too. Thai restaurant food was nice with very comfy ambience, prices was reasonable too. Thumbs up! Room service was at an affordable price too & it was fast in sending up their food. I would say that with a budget hotel standard they have in fact won in many ways they should have been rated higher. The hotel is also near to 1 of the hypermarket Jusco, I always do my groceries shopping before I head out to the expresway

The hotel is definitely 1 of my favourite choice to stay when I am in Malacca.
Cons: is pretty far away from places like Jonker street

Room Tip: Parking is super cheap if you will shop for groceries @ Jusco before coming back car park is big eno...

The hotel is easily located (right beside the main road and not far from Ayer Keroh exit)). The hotel lobby doesn't seem like a budget hotel at all and the staff was friendly. I was rather impressed with the cleanliness of the room. For budget hotel standard, the room were big, clean and tidy (we had connecting rooms). The room decor was very basics and simple. Breakfast provided were average (not much varieties), and the ambience for the cafe were pleasant! This is one of the good budget hotels I ever stayed in and I won’t hesitate to stay here again in future! In short, it's still worth a stay!
For those who want to avoid the traffic jam in town area, this hotel would be good to stay. It is near to shopping malls and attractions like zoo, parks, etc.. It is also not very far from town.
On the down side, having located near to the main road, it could be noisy at times. And if the front car park is full, the next one will be quite a distance (at the back of the hotel).

The Kings Hotel has two blocks viz., the hotel block that fronts a busy thoroughfare and an apartment block at the back of the hotel block. I stayed in a studio apartment which was a large room with a bed, a sofa and a dining desk, with a bathroom and balcony. The location is midway from the highway toll exit to the Melaka town. Opposite the hotel is a medical centre.

The furnishing of the studio apartment was just average and of 2.5 star quality. However the room was clean and the same goes for the property. There is a large car park in front of the apartment block, so those who drive would have no problem finding parking space.

This hotel is suitable for those who are visiting friends and relatives in the vicinity. It is too far from the Melaka town where most points of interests are located. Although nearby there is a zoo, recreational forest, butterfly park, etc., there are some higher-quality hotels in that area.

I would say this hotel is just a place if you want to have a clean and comfortable place to sleep. What surprised me was the quality of the breakfast buffet comprising local fare. The spread was thin, but the quality was better than I expected of hotel of this class. The nasi lemak, chicken rendang and some other dishes were quite authentic.

We used this hotel because i thought it would be easy to get to from the motorway , big mistake . The hotel is right beside a busy road, so noisy you need cotton wool in your ears to sleep . The room was large but felt like a prison, bare walls, mould in the corners, holes in the bathroom ceiling and generally grubby worn out everything .
The best thing was the free breakfast which catered for most tastes .
You would be much better to pay extra and have a hotel nearer to the centre of town , a taxi will cost you as much as we found out .

The Hotel location is ideal to many quests who have stayed here but the traffic noise at night cant be help I suppose. Its next to the main road leading to the city. The rooms are big and well maintained. We have looked into the bathroom that you mentioned. Its rectified and we keep maintaining when ever we receive comments or complaints from guests. Thank you.

Book a superior rm for a night stay on 4th jan. Easily spotted along the main road. Also have a private carpark at the apartment side, feel quiet safe parking the car there. Room are generally clean n neat. If you are no fussy type, it's a good place to stay for a night or 2. Aircon is abit slow in cooling the room fast. My friend who stay next door is not so lucky, her room aircon is abit noisy even though is on low. Free Wifi - password provided on request. Good!
Breakfast provided - local style food like Nasi Lemak(coconutilk rice), Mee, chicken rendang, chicken ham, mashed or wedge potatoes, .....bread, porridge. Fried eggs. :)

Pancake don't take good, taste abit sour. We order plain and the other with peanut butter. :( !

Will come back next time. About 20 mins drive to the Melaka town center.

I am glade that I booked through Agoda.com for my Melaka trip last week ago.
The Prima Hotel that I and my family stayed was a small but pleasant one and was given two rooms on the 1st level connecting to each other.
Room price was reasonable, room was clean, pillow, bed was comfortable and towels were change every day.
The toilet floor was slippery when it's wet and the drainage was very slow (need improvement).
During the last August review I read, the lift is not working but now it's still not working either. Hope the hotel will look into the matter as it's very inconvenience for some elderly people staying at the hotel.
