Reviewed 1 June 2012

Had the most enjoyable family gathering there, Aunty Sue from Melbourne, Cousin Mae from Singapore, and the rest of us from KL and Ipoh, total 14 of us including children. Stayed in the 3-rooms suite on 14th floor, can see the town and the sea, breezy with Malacca sea breeze. said only air-cond in bedrooms but surprised to find living hall also has air-cond. And the 2-rooms unit face the pool and sea, very nice view. Big living room. also good sea breeze.

Ample Parking Space, Good security at entrance and at ground floor of each block. Lots of trees make shades for the pool ... Everyone... adults and children enjoyed the big size swimming pool. lift a bit slow but children get to learn patience. Overall Staff cordial & Nice Clean Unit. did not use the kitchen though, Malacca food too fun to explore, it's a holiday! Sure recommend to friends and come back again

Room Tip: Choose higher floor unit, nice view and nice breeze.

Frankly, the place is rather out of the way despite the bus stop located just outside.

Apartment was rather sparse, tv had one channel, and the aircon in the master bedroom was awkwardly positioned in such a way that it didn't help much if you're trying to cool off on the bed.

Bathtub was filthy, and the shower head came out with dirty brown water when it was first turned on. The hot water faucet on the lower shower head was also faulty.

The fridge door couldn't be closed properly so the fridge wasn't of much use.

Also, as there was only one lift, there was an ocassion where we waited a good 10mins just for the lift to be empty enough to get on, and if you're on the 10th floor or smth, you don't really wanna be taking the stairs.

Rooms extremely basic. Lift is old. Corridors are dark and dodgy looking.

Our family of 7 adults, 3 kids stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. We got lost for 2 hours since the map provided by the hotel directed us to Jalan Merdeka 9 instead af 9, Jalan Merdeka. Since I was not the one doing the booking, I did not even know the hotel's name until the day of traveling.

Our family travel in 2 cars, but the management only provide 1 set of keys & security tag (gate security at guard house & to go up the lift) Hence 1 car will need to explain our 1 tag-2 car story each time we want to go through the guard house.
Pros:
1. 2 pools (1 baby pool with slide). My daughter enjoys this but suffered from mild skin allergy after our trip.
2. Reasonable security. By the way it is situated next to the Banda Hilir Police station / hostel.
3. Reasonable clean
Cons:
1. Water heater's shower holder leaks.
2. 2 toilets, 1 ensuite for master bed, another common area toilet. Common Area toilet has no place to hang clothes / put toiletries.
3. Bumpy & creaking bed
4. Sofa that has seen better days
5. Location - about 15 mins drive to the all the happenings in town.
I doubt we'll stay here again, mainly due to location of this apartment.
All attractions are so Jonker Street centric, the traffic jam to go out & back to the accomodation is quite tedious.
With the time & petrol spend in the car, better pay a bit more to stay in a equivalent hotel where you can just walk..

Room Tip: ask for room overseeing the pool

Had a family vacation in Melaka last week and decided to stay in Garden City after much research and surveys. Price was affordable. We stayed at the Premier Suite, just enough for our family of 6. The reservation counter staff was helpful and gave a fast service. We were reminded about switching on the main power at the power box when we enter. The unit is clean as well as the rooms and toilet. Garden City a great spot as it is middle of town and walking distance to Melaka Raya. We just need 5mins drive to the shopping centre (Mahkota Parade & Dataran Pahlawan). Jonker Walk is also a 10 mins drive away. Definately an enjoyable weekend and shall come back again!

Room Tip: Always inform the reservation staff on the number of people who are travelling with. They will sugge...
