“The best holiday at Casa Del Rio...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

Love everything about the hotel , the location, the friendly staff, the spacious room,the pool, the interior design ( Spanish Style), the food. Everything was perfect. The only thing the room service menu is too limited. We ordered lunch Chinese Fried Rice and CDR Club Sandwich from Room Service . It was really delicious but we order the same dish again for late dinner it was so different, the taste and presentation. CDR should maintain the quality of the food. I am going to CDR again this year.

Ideally situated in the historical heart of Melaka, it is a brand new hotel along the river. It is a attractive a,d trendy building with a bar and a restaurant overlooking the river. I am not convinced about the decoration "old Spanish dark wood " . Nice pool on the roof.
The service was impressively inefficient but the staff is so friendly and so willing that you forgive everything.
Overall, I think it is expensive for what it is (and for Malaysia) but it is probably the best upmarket choice in central Melaka.

Room Tip: overlooking the river even if more expensive

I was there with my wife over Christmas 2011. It is opened on 6th May 2011, so it's still very new. From what I heard, it is under the same management as Hard Rock Cafe.

The hotel is situated very close to Jonker Street. There is a free shuttle bus to and fro the 2 megamalls in Melaka. There is free parking for hotel guests and is secure underground parking. Very frequent security patrols. There is also a comfortable library with internet access, with free coffee and tea for hotel guests. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Very personalised check-in.

Our room is very clean and spacious. Well designed too. Our balcony faces the river and you can see lots of things from the balcony. There is free wifi in the room but only limited to 2 devices per room. The passwords given is valid for only 24 hours after which, you will need to call up for new passwords.

We had breakfast in the hotel. You get to choose from a set menu for the main meal. The chicken meat in the "chicken rendang set" is a bit dry. There are some bread and pastries which are in buffet style. Fresh fruits are available too. The waiters and waitresses are friendly and attentive.

Will I stay here again? Yes, of course!

Excellent service, extremely cozy rooms, delicious meals.

The experience at Casa del Rio was amazing. Personalised check-in, special breakfast menu. And the best of all is the little details that was put into the rooms (rubber duckie for the bath tub, a "buku 555" for note taking), things that you cannot find in a normal hotel...

Furthermore, by staying there, you will get a 50% discount on Hard Rock Melaka merchandise.

I would also like to thank Mr. Mohd Noor Ithnin for assisting us and also for his warm hospitality. Also, to Stephanie for her humbleness and accepting her mistakes and countlessly apologising...

I really recommend this hotel...

It was a family holiday where we didn't want anything to go wrong. We were not disappointed.

Right from the start, Casa Del Rio's staff got everything right. On top of that, the rooms were simply amazing! Yes, there are cheaper places you could stay at in Melaka; trust me, I've been. But they simply cannot compare to the luxury you'll experience here.

Room Tip: Choose a room further from the bar on the ground floor.
