          Small room but strategy location. Walking distance to jonker street (suggest not to drive due to bad traffic and limited parking), Mahkota and Pahlawan Shopping Mall are just opposite the hotel. And free parking is provide by the hotel too.

          First, Explorer Hotel is in Malacca and not in KL. Yes,the hotel serves Halal foods. The breakfast serve are simple Malaysia noodles and rice and not much side dishes.
