“Cool hotel with great interior design”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

Very pleasant stay with great rooms. Loved the interior design of the place. Towards the tail end of Jonker Street, right by the stage, which is fairly easy to find when you actually get to Jonker Street itself. However, if you are coming from the Malacca Central Bus station at night, it could be quite a hassle. Need to deal with rude taxi drivers touting their services at crazy prices. Was disappointed that the staff didn't try to make effort to arrange for taxi service for pick up at the bus station even though I had emailed them beforehand to explain that we were 2 ladies arriving late at night. It ended up being quite a nightmare getting from the bus station to the hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It is very cosy and warm and the decoration in the room and the lobby leaves a very relaxing, clean and serene feel. The location is superb and has easy access to all main areas in Malacca. All the staffs are very friendly and helpful - was attended by Loius (hope it is the correct spelling) and Jasmine - very sincere and warm service. Would definitely come back again!

Great little hotel in terrific location to Jonker street. Rooms are on the small side but cosy and bed is super comfortable. No lifts and stairs are hard work. Reasonable breakfast served downstairs for extra price. Big tip would be to stay here on Friday Saturday or Sunday nights when the night markets are on as otherwise it is very quiet . Night markets have great selection of street food, shopping and entertainment at your doorstep. Really enjoyed our one night stay and massage place next doors is good too!

Room Tip: go for ground floor if you can't handle stairs

2nd time to Malacca. Stayed in Holiday inn during my first visit and decided to try this hotel as I had a good experience in a boutique hotel in Kuala Lumpur and this was the only boutique hotel which has room available on my travel date.
I brought my father and he had difficulty walking up the narrow stairs but nothing could be done by the management.
The room design is not as I expected. However the cleanliness is acceptable.
Location is good as it is located in china town but we had difficulty looking for the entrance of the parking because the access to the entrance is blocked due to night market.
We did not really sleep well till midnight as there were karaoke at the big stage in front if the hotel.
For the service side, couldn't comment much as we did not really get in touch with the staff as they were probably busy with other guests due to busy weekend. The owner can probably consider hiring more staff to provide better service just like other boutique hotel which has more personal touch

Thankyou to the staff at Jonker Boutique. We had a fantastic stay.
Staff and people very friendly.
Lovely clean hotel.
Great location. Walking distance to everything.
MWifi was available.
Markets on the weekend so if you dont like a little noise, not for you... but adds to the atmosphere.
Food fantastic... beer and cocktails very cheap and yummy.
Little India a few streets away has amazing food... Beautiful place to visit.
Thankyou.

We really enjoyed this little hotel, for its elegant rooms, spotlessly clean, nice bathroom, friendly staff and perfect location in old Melaka. If you are there Friday and Saturday nights, beware the noise from the street market goes on late - but that's the reason we were there! Breakfast was at the little café adjoined to the hotel and was, well, basic western, dry toast, an egg, not really great - though really cheap. Still that's fair enough considering how good local food is. There are a couple of places within 5 minutes walk where you can find a more "western" breakfast if you need it.

We selected this hotel due to the close location to all the attractions. We checked in during weekend, check in was quick and easy. What really let us down is the noise, noise are coming from another room and we could hear footstep from up stair as we were place in the 2nd floor. And its a saturday night, there is a stage outside the hotel, people are singing through the karaoke machine till close to 11 at night. I do not fall asleep easily, and these noises makes for an unpleasant night. The management could consider thickening their walls. Luckily its just for a night as it was a short getaway for us.

Other than that, we had a great time having all the good food melaka could offer. High recommend this place, limau limau cafe for their terrific smoothies and juices

Room Tip: If you can, go for the room on the third floor and avoid the rooms at the front of the hotel as it i...
