“What a mistake”
Reviewed 30 March 2011

Well, not too much to say about this place. Booked it on-line and suffered the consequences. Pictures of the apartment looked great, BUT, they must have been taken a long, long time ago, or they have a show apartment somewhere in the complex. Got to have been the worst place I have stayed in for a long time - fortunately it was for only one night. Basically this is a condo block where people have bought apartments and are renting them out for holiday stays.

Had a two bedroom apartment. Some sort of air conditioning in each room, but nothing in the lounge area. Minimal bedding or towels, and even if you used the towels they where so thin you would have taken a long time to dry yourself.

Bathroom/shower was a toilet seat and a house with a shower head - suggest you put the toilet paper somewhere were it won't get wet before you have a shower. It's also en-suite to the master bedroom, so anybody wanting to use the toilet has to walk thru the master bedroom to get to it.

Kitchenette was interesting but I am guessing used little. Fridge/freezer was switched off but would have been off little use anyway as the door didn't close.

Had a TV in the lounge, however it was older than the building itself, so couldn't even plug our kids portable DVD player into it.

Room Tip: Don't bother, look somewhere else.

Children enjoy the pool. Living room no air-cond, but enough of air-conds at work and in the car, so at night open all windows and doors, very breezy, some family members need to put on blanket at dawn. Walking against the traffic, can find Newton with all local food. Will certainly visit again!

Service was helpful and informative. Service was welcoming and friendly. The apartment was roomy, unpretentious, clean and confortable. Lovely view of pool and Straits of Malacca. Very central location within easy walking distance to shops and and places of interest. The family thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Good value. Will certainly recommend to my friends when they visit Malaysia.

The price for 3 bedrooms is good value for money. It is not luxurious, but it is really a great place to stay if you are travelling with a large group. The rooms are clean and spacious. The living room and kitchen are also furnished with the necessities. The location is a bit out of town, but with a car, any part of Melaka is a non-issue. There is a seafood restaurant opposite the apartments, a Chinese restaurant (Beizhan) down the road and a biscuit/local products shop (Yong Sheng) next door to Beizhan.

  • Liked — Good value for money, clean
  • Disliked — There are residents staying there.

This is really a budget service apartment. We stayed for one night after a day outing to Melaka from Kuala Lumpur. We had a 3 bed room apartment. There is no air conditioning in the living areas (only a ceiling fan) and this is rather unpleasant given the high humidity and heat. The rooms are air conditioned but one of them wasn't working too well. The apartment is very run down and very basic and poor quality furniture. During the night we could hear loud music coming from the neighbouring nightclub

  • Liked — Nothing
  • Disliked — No air conditioning in the living areas. Not cheap given the price paid.
  • Tips/Secrets — Very basic accomodation
