“Far from the center-but decent breakfast.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2012

We stayed here in early Sept. for a nite as we couldn't get any place near the center of the city. The hotel is decent but its a good option only if u have a car to drive. Otherwise you have to take a taxi to go back and forth from the tourist destinations. The doors are a bit thin. Easily disturbed when people pass by your room.
Only place near is the Old Portuguese Settlement.

The hotel lobby was beautiful, clean and looks posh. Front office service staff were ok. TV doesn't seems to be working well, giving pretty distorted visual and noisy. Bed is -- like what the rest have said: too soft!! There are cups and instant coffee packets in room but strange, no spoon, and they don't provide spoon! One minus point is that the hotel is too far from city, we had to cab around, which is about RM15-20 per trip. Breakfast is slow and poor variety of food, service staff doesn't look trained, serving with pretty bad attitude when we were there.

I dont mind about the parking issue or far from the town. The most important IS the interior of the hotel was absoloutly gorgeous. The service was nice and the decor ( painting ) was garrish but interesting. The price is very reasonable for a nice and comfortable staying.
My room is totally beautiful,clean & comfort!

Actually it's far from the Jonker street, the famous landmark of Melaka. If you drive then it will not be a problem for you.
The hotel is quite near the Portuguese village in Melaka, which is a area that nearby the sea and many famous seafood restaurant over there.
The junior room is small but comfortable。 The hotel also provides free buffet breakfast and free parking area for guests.

The 5 star boutique with 1 star price on its website is misleading.
I don't mind that it doesn't have 5 star facilities, but the place could at least try to earn 5 star cleanliness to support its claim. It sadly did not.
The first thing I did upon entering the room is to clean the toilet. It is not filthy, but dirty enough to annoy me to do something about it.
I booked a junior room, where the bed is located right between two walls. I was again annoyed by the amount dust/hair/dirt collected at the side of the beds. It seems that no one bothers to clean the gaps besides and underneath the bed. Judging by the amount of dust, I think its untouched for at least a month.

The bed is not even 1-star quality. It's so springy that it felt cheap. It's probably the worse bed I've ever slept on.

I got the room for half the rate through deal site, so I would say it's still worth the money.
At normal rate, I will definitely avoid this hotel.

Check in is quick, got an upgrade to family room (2 queen, 1 single), although the room size is the same :p but appreciate it.
Below is my check list :
Room size : 5/10, small but better than most shop lot hotels in Melaka, there is balcony +1
Cleanliness : 4/10, the pillow some has stains but the worst of all, one of the towel has period stains! other than that it's quite clean, as those are changeable items.
Pillow : 7/10, nice for the price, given contoured pillow and synthetic pillow
Bed : 5/10, Queen bed super bouncy, not recommended for people with back ache. Single Bed, super hard, recommended for people with back ache. Quite extreme of both types.
Toilet : 6/10, small but good enough, love the power rain shower type and includes body shooter :)
In hotel entertainment (IHE) : 6/10, 32" LCD TV, for that price, it's good!
Parking : 3/10, Open Air parking, but if you are lucky enough you would get the front parking.
Location : 5/10, Not within walking distance to most major spots, building on it's own, not shoplot
Breakfast : 7/10, Nice open air dining which is not hot as the building blocks the sun from the breakfast eaters and food is not bad!
Staff Performance : 9/10, very friendly and helpfull!
For business : 7/10, will be good enough
For Leisure : 7/10, bouncy bed, let your imaginations go wild.

Room Tip: Next to it, there is this Kuih Kampong place, where I have eaten one of the best Popiah Daging in my...
