“Not bad for the price”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

I booked this over last weekend long easter.

Service is not bad as previously mentioned here as the staff were friendly and nice.

Room size is big and reasonably clean. For the price I cannot complain more.

Overall I would recommend this hotel due to it price/location and good service.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

The receptionists are very rude. When we reached there, 3 of them were sitting down and minding their own bussinesses, did not bother to greet us and all had their moody face on, especially the ones named Kulan and Ifa. We even asked to check in and had to wait for someone else to come. We decided to pay using debit card, but somehow the system was down so we have to pay with cash. Took around 20mins just for them to check what was wrong, and did not bother to apologize at all and asked for cash. We did not bring enough cash. Yet, they asked us to just go to the bank and cash out in a very very rude manner.

Warm hospitality shown by the Frontliners, especially Duty Manager Kamal and the Front Office big boss himself; Encik Halim . Being a Hotelier, I am very impressed with both their professionalism shown in handling the Reception, taking good care of the lobby area, fulfilling my needs ( as I celebrated my Wedding Anniversary there ) , indeed I shall come again to stay there !
The only setback ; The Restaurant during breakfast was very crowded and a little bit out of control, as I can see a few hotel guests unable to find a seat (including me & my wife). I am aware that it is during weekend and public holiday, but the F&B team can always come up with ideas to tackle the situation. As there are saying that says : "A Hungry Customer will become an Angry Customer " if things turn out NOT as expected . Hope to see improvement during my next trip there !

I never stay this hotel. But I will need to give a big big compliment to the staff over this hotel, especially Ms. Kulam.

I was booking this hotel on behalf of my friend. Her parents and friends were about visiting Melaka for 4 nights. They are O.K.U (deaf-mute) group of people. Ms. Kulam took a good care of them and very compromising when they requested to cancel one room on the spot.

Guys please take consideration of this hotel whenever you are visiting Melaka :)

The hotel is perfectly situated in Melaka with only 10 minutes walk down the river to get to Chinatown or Jonker walk in Melaka.
The price is very low, so they delivered exactly what was expected however the aircon in the room was very noisy and not very efficient. And I had no warm water when i was taking a shower around 9AM. Maybe i was up too late.
The room was clean and had a great view.
There was breakfast, but it was very basic.

I won't complain too much, cause when you're in Melaka you wont be staying in the room for long anyway. They should fix the aircon though.

Room Tip: I got a room ending on a even number and it had a great view. Ask for a high floor with even number...

When we arrived we were checked-in to our room in less than 10 minutes.

Room was okay. Bed sheets were dirty.

Breakfast was good; their fruits were nice but if you're not fond of Malaysian cuisine then you can suffice on omelette and bread w/ jam, butter.

Staff was helpful. Location was good.

Hotel is right in the middle of the town. The room was large and good with basic facilities, good breakfast and friendly staff. I got the room facing the Melaka River and viewed at the famous Melaka River Cruise boat passing by. Good for budget traveler and probably the best option to stay in its category. I hope the satellite TV should have more channels.
