This hotel is only 3 years old and is in the perfect spot to explore Malacca. Just a two minute walk to Jonker Street and all the action. It has a fabulous rooftop pool with one of the best views in town. The pool bar has 1 for 1 happy hour from 4-6pm which was a great way to unwind after walking all over town during the day.
The body wrap and massage I had in the hotel spa was lovely and very reasonably priced compared to equivalent hotels I have stayed in.
We stayed in a studio king which was very spacious and well appointed with a view of the river from our balcony. No smells from the river at all unlike other reviewers have mentioned.
The buffet breakfast was surprisingly good - Malacca is not a town to come to for fine dining. The local food is far better value and tastier than the attempts at fine dining I have sampled in various places in Malacca.
The staff went out of their way to be helpful in every part of the hotel we used. The only negative I have is the hotel towels were stained, although they were clean. Seems to be a problem endemic to Malacca hotels and not something that really bothered us.
