I've post a genuine and honest review earlier about...

The Wana has deteriorated since our last visit. It's a bit run down and some of the hallway carpets are badly stained. While the service was courteous, the breakfast buffet was very limited. There's a general feeling of being left behind. After all there are many newer, more attractive places to stay in Melaka these days. It's a shame because...

I stayed here on an overnight trip to Melaka. The location is great and close to everything you want to see. Right on the river...I have a nice view of the river. There is also a large dancing fountain just outside of the hotel. There are multiple shows nightly with colorful lighting. Easy walk to Harmony Street and other attractions....

Can I give 0 stars? This is quite possibly the worst place we've ever stayed at. Where do I start... - check in took 1/2 an hour whereby they took an imprint of our credit card even though we'd already paid and there's no mini bar - roof is leaking - toilet is leaking - no room service - floors...

If you have long holiday trip for your family and budget is your consideration, and the minimum requirement is good quality bedding and spacious room. This hotel will...

Check in procedure was slow at first. After that, I was walking to my room, the trashbin at the elavator was full of garbage and filled with unpleasant smell and nobody seems to do something about it. The room itself is old, the TV, telephone everything and the bathroom still have some hairs on it. When almost going to bed...
