“Melaka riverside hotel”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Wana Rriverside hotel has great view of Melaka river front. Front office staff are courteous and friendly. Lobby air cond is cooling and nice. However our room located at level 5 air cond wasn't cool enough. Tap water was muddy needed to run for few mins to get clean water. Everytime turning on tap water it made high pitch noise which is really annoying. Shower room without door, water always splash out all over the bathroom floor. Room sound proof is poor, can hear all sort of noise till midnight. Like the buffet breakfast.

A small hotel located in a very beautiful location. The Hotel rooms are pretty only especially the bathrooms. Food outlet are limited in the hotel but rite across the rive the hotel is equipped with the towns best bar's. Staff in the hotel are friendly but there is still much space to improve. The highlight of the hotel is the Lake Side location. Hotel entrance is still pretty small.

Room Tip: Request for the Lake side view rooms

A small hotel located by the Melaka River.When you are dining you can see the river cruise passing by.The place used to be busier but now it is quiet. The room is clean and comfortable.Wifi available. Very near to many historical tourists attraction sites.

Decent rooms! You get a great view of the river and it is at a great location. The breakfast was not really great and there was no wifi in the room! They do not give you more than two bottles of water in a day even if you agree to pay for them!
Things to do in melaka-
TIP- extremely small town nothing much to do you can walk around the city
You should take a river cruise which is pretty good tells you about the history of the city and all.
You can easily walk down to jonkers street which is 20 mins walk from the hotel (dead in the day amazingly happening in the night) there is a square right before jonkers street which is happening in the day time
You would want to ride on the popular rickshaws which look really cute and are lighted up( you should take a rickshaws tour in the day which takes you around all he historic places around costs about 25rm ) it is not exactly a tour you could simple ask a rickshaws driver to tAke you around and even bargain with him ^_^ .... You should surely try the street food in jonkers street and the bakeries !
Please do not hesitate asking me about things to do in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Venice, Rome, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore you can email me mehra.sanchia@gmail.com for information happy to help ^_^

The location is good and the hotel takes advantadge of that. We arrived at one o clock, with reservation, and they didnt let us in our room. They said they had no rooms available and they were cleaning ours. And in fact they didnt let us in one minute before two o clock. Most hotels do, they didnt.
But the worst thing was that the whole floor smelled a lot like tabaco, although it was a non smoker floor.
Average, but not good.

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.
