“Affordable no-frills inn in the middle of everything”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

I went on a cycling tour from Singapore to Malaysia. Our group booked rooms for 30 of us at Fenix Inn.
It is a no frills hotel and very affordable. The rooms are clean, has a TV and hot showers. I am also particular about clean rooms and bed. The room are clean and bedsheets fresh.
The key selling point of this inn is its proximity to the shopping, massage spas, restaurants just mere walking distance.
I enjoyed myself at this inn as I find it adequate for a tired traveler who just want a hot shower, a quick meal, a massage before jumping into a comfortable bed.

Room Tip: Ask for room not facing the main road. And if you hate climbing up the stairs, ask for a room on th...

We went to Malacca as a group of friends and had booked 2 triple rooms. The rooms were without windows, and one of the rooms were located near the staircase. Hence, each time someone used the stairway, we could hear the footsteps, thankfully we were heavy sleepers.

Fenix Inn is located near shopping malls (with movie theatre, karaoake, arcades) and there's even massage centers opposite it. One of the malls were recently renovated and started bringing in international brands such as uniqlo.

Overall the rooms were clean, sufficient for a one night no fuss stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were finally given a room with window overlooking the main road. Good. The window was important to us as we feel claustrophobic otherwise. Bed was a little hard - we had backache the next day. A bonus was that it overlooks 'Little Nonya'. Nice eateries nearby. New dim sum restaurant a street away. Good and Chinese food, reasonably priced, at Transasia Restaurant nearby. Free valet parking service. Generally, polite and helpful staff. Thanks.

Room Tip: Room with window if you like to look out. Main building has better wifi connections.

Though this small establishment, it's just simple with no frills. Affordable for most, families can book multiple rooms for parents & kids without burning a hole in anyone's pocket. Staying here, you're smack in the middle of all the shopping, movies, eateries & restaurants.

We stayed here for 1 night for a short trip.

Pros:
1. Close to malls
2. Close to main historic attractions
3. Free valet parking service
4. Fast check-in

Cons:
1. Shower head and pipe wasnt clean - there was fungus growing on it.
2. Cleaner vacuuming the floor at 8AM while we were still sleeping
3. You can hear noise from the next room

We had a very pleasant 5-day stay. It is just next to 3 large shopping malls, including the new extension of the high-end Melaka Megamall. Only 15 minutes' walk to Jonker Street. Staff were extremely helpful and responded to our concern of unreliable FREE wifi seriously. They made us free machine coffee 7am-5pm on request. When we booked the hotel shuttle to the bus station, the Duty Manager drove us in a car early in the morning. As there is no elevator in the 3-storey building, ask for lower floor if available. It was not hard to carry our heavy suitcases to the first floor.

Room Tip: Lower floor because there is no elevator.
