I booked two rooms here recently for my family (couple with an infant) and for a larger family (5 people) we were travelling with. Both of us were quite happy with the hotel in general.
I booked directly through the hotel as I wanted to be sure they could accommodate the larger family of two adults and three children within the hotel's family room suite. They were able to do so at no extra cost for the third single bed and the suite was great with a separate bedroom for the double bed and one for the single beds with a living space and balcony overlooking the river. The rate we paid was RM338 (which included breakfast) was quite remarkable for such a large space in such a good location.
The double room was not anywhere near as spacious and didn't have an external window at all but was still comfortable.
Both rooms had great air conditioning facilities (a must in hot Melaka) but no fridge. Bathrooms don't have a shower cubicle but i didn't find this a problem. All rooms come with free wifi.
Breakfast was very basic and minimalist with only a few Asian breakfast options, toast and coffee but was sufficient enough to get you started for the day.
The hotel was quite noisy throughout the night but I put this down to some disrespectful guests as opposed to the hotel itself.
The location is great as it's right on the river and the main attractions (Jonkers st, Pink Church, etc) are about a ten minute walk along the river and the walk is an attraction in itself with beautiful buildings and pretty bridges to see along the way.
Parking is free and ample here as well as very easy to access. This was a great feature for us as we have a very large MPV.
Staff at the hotel were quite nice and friendly. We were able to extend our checkout time by two hours with no problems at all.
Overall, I feel 906 Riverside Hotel is much better for larger groups or those willing to book a larger room for the view and space. Based on the aesthetic and ambience of the double room, I think there are nicer hotels within the same area for a similar price where I would chose to stay next time. However, I would definitely book this hotel again when I'm traveling with another larger family or with another couple wanting to share the family suite as these rooms are great value for money.
