Reviewed 7 June 2014

This Hotel is ideally situated for shopping and sightseeing. Its clean and comfortable but the food leans towards local cuisine even though its 4* so don't expect meat and two veg to be on the menu.
I opted for a club room is it worth it ? I would say yes the lounge is on the third floor with a nice terrace where you can while away the hours over free tea and snacks. Light food is available lunch time and evening and if you are not a big eater then this represents good value. Staff are very attentive and helpful. and generally the Hotel is clean and the rooms large and airy with a good range of toiletries. Its note really a 5* but good value.
Tip if you are over 55 make sure you ask for the lunch time buffett (hi tea ) as its half price

Room Tip: High floor either side should be ok

We went in March this year dering school holiday. I was attending a workshop and my family tagged along. The staffs was great and very helpful..we were greeted at the entrance and ushered to the counter. Check in was smooth. The room was comfortable and clean. The meals was great..large spread and tasty. We loved the grill selections. The location was within walking distance to the malls, night market and Taming Sari 'the of melacca'. But need to cross a busy double lane road..have to be careful. Swimming pool was great but lots of people. So we went early in the morning and late in the evening..could have the whole pool to ourselves. The pool was located at a higher floor and able to watch nice view of the town. Overal satisfied and definately would come again

Well known hotel located within walking distance to most historic places in Melaka and also to the popular night market of Jonker Street.

The hotel staff were very attentive, and helpful. Free shuttle service was also provided to the city center, and last but not least, don't forget the location map that comes along with some discount coupons for attractions around the city.

The hotel is just across the road from Mahkota Parade, Hatten Square and Dataran Pahlawan, so if you need to shop or just hang out, there's plenty to choose from.

A few items to consider:
1. The hotel has a very busy main road right in front of it. So if you're thinking of crossing it to get to the malls, you'd need to be really careful.
2. There is a club on the corner of Mahkota Parade (Mixx) - you're sometimes actually able to hear the music from the hotel.
3. The shuttle service is free, but you should

Room Tip: You'll be able to get discount coupons from the Hotel front desk (it comes along with a map) - v...

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for choosing Holiday Inn as your preferred hotel in Melaka and for taking the time to share your recent feedback.

It is disheartening for me to learn about the hiccups with your air-conditioned during your recent stay. Through my conversations with the maintenance crew we realized that there was a faulty valve in this rooms. This defects are due to 'wear and tear' and has since been rectified. I have asked my team to conduct checks on all our rooms and advise me accordingly for my perusal.

I appreciate your constructive feedback which has further our passion to strive and seek for continuous improvement.

I hope that this minor event will not deter you from returning to Holiday Inn Melaka and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

I rated 7/10 when the staff at the front desk requested me to do so. She then asked how the hotel could make it to 8 or 9, who I quickly responded that the service staff at breakfast (2nd level) ought to be "more attentive". The room was above average though clean and well-lit. The hotel location is not the best but the staff at the front desk and concierge made it up! The buffet spread was amazing but did not really enjoy it as the air condition was really weak! And, my room was in complete darkness twice for a few seconds in the wee hours that woke me up! Sigh..

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for sharing your recent experiences with us.

I have met the breakfast crew and agree that there are areas for improvement. I will be reviewing the operations at Essence during peak hours to better support the demands of the business.

I also can relate to the darkness in the room as I experienced it myself due to the power disruption caused by the state / local electricity board that affected the power supply in our hotel and the neighboring hotel. In times like this, the hotel's generator will start automatically (between 5 to 10 seconds) and support the hotel's power supply.

However, I do appreciate your constructive feedback and I look forward to welcoming you in the not too distant future.

Warm regards,
