We were here to accompany a friend from Thailand. Since he has booked this hotel through a travel agency, we just followed.In spite of all the negative recent review i read from some other reviewers from TripAdvisor, we were very happy with what we encountered for our 2 days 1 night stay.
First, the check in was smooth, then were given an early check in because it is a weekday, they have empty room available. We got room number 708. It was clean and comfortable, nice view overlooking the Melaka River and the Straits of Melaka from a far. The location is just great. We just strolled along the Melaka River which is just beside the hotel as it is situated at the riverbank. We can even buy the River Cruise ticket at the hotel counter and the pick up time from the hotel is at 9am, 3pm and 8pm. The ticker is very cheap: MYR10 for local & MYR15 for non citizen.
We walked across the bridge (Jambatan Pasar) about a few hundreds meters from the hotel and continue walking... and there is the historical center of Melaka civilization. If you like antiques and local cuisine, this is like heaven for you, The Jonker Walk. If you visit this place during the weekends (Friday to Sunday), you can explore the night market here.
In the evening, we crossed the Jambatan Hang Tuah to the open air cafe opposite the hotel to enjoy dinner, music and a few drinks. We feel so relax being embraced by the beautiful surrounding of Melaka River at night.
