Reviewed 10 February 2014

Location was great, just 10 mins drive away from the noisy and bustling downtown. Charming decor with antique dotting around but not overwhelming. Split level from the lobby to the dining area with high ceilings and the vast open space was welcoming. The room we stayed were spotlessly clean and spacious. Great comfy pillows and amenities. Love the bathtub, very luxurious. Love the free wifi that kept us connected everywhere in the hotel. We had dinner at the hotel, wide selections of local food to try and was surprisingly delicious. What was most impressive about the hotel is the friendliness of the dedicated staff, the front desk, waiters, chamber maids were all superbly friendly and always smiling. We only had a one-night weekend stay but we will definitely be back again for more. A true gem in historical Melaka.
Thank you for making our stay a memorable one.

Managed to get a room here as most of the top hotels are fully booked.
Room is not bad but the location is inconvenient without a vehicle.
As we are oversea traveller, we do not have a car to Melaka. Public transport is not available at ease in this town. This hotel is located away from the town centre (attractions) and we always need to get public transport to the heritage area which is the main purpose for us to visit Melaka. Walking there is very far away and taxis around the town charged the rate without having a meter. We were charged RM$25 going to the town but was charged RM$35 going back to the hotel.
However, getting food around the hotel is not as bad as there are hawker centers around the hotel

A place where you can relax……
Staff is courteous and helpful. Good hospitality. We had stayed a deluxe room and the room was clean, spacious. The beds and linen were clean and perfectly made.
Overall, I had a good experience and carry lot of good memories from The Settlement Hotel. Will definitely be back to this place again due to its nice ambiance and reasonable room rate.

A friend helped us book this hotel for one night during CNY. We arrived with the car and couldn't find the car-park but at the drop-off they told us to hand them the keys and they took care of it - valet service free of charge. The hotel is quite new and we had a great room with big bathroom (316). The minibar (water & soft-drink) is compulsory. The roof garden is nice (not much of a view though) and they served delicious cakes and tea free of charge. We enjoyed the pool in the morning and had breakfast there. The breakfast was simple but in a nice ambience.
There is a busy street passing by but in the room we couldn't hear any noise - in the bathroom though we could hear passing cars.

When I reach there, it really see like a normal hotel at outside, but once you step in, you will realize totally difference from outside look, from the front door step till the room, the decoration really great, even for tiles. Not only that, the hotel manager can even explains to you why the owner build like that. After hearing the that. I find that The name "Settlement Hotel" really suitable for it.

For those who like to take photo, you really can not miss it either, you will surprise to see some of the unique & antique furniture.

Great hotel with unique decorations and themes, combining antique furniture and modern art. Every piece of the artwork, furniture and design has its own story to tell.

Not a huge hotel, but it has everything inside: meeting room, ballroom, swimming pool, spa service, etc....

Love the room especially the goose feather-filled pillow, so soft and comfortable, I can guarantee you'll have a good night sleep.

Good location with just 10mins drive to town and major landmarks in Malacca.
