I have stayed in this hotel with my partner for one night and we were very satisfied with the location, room size and facilities. The hotel is walking distance to the historical sites and there is a big mall next to the hotel. The check-in time was 2pm but we have arrived at 1pm and they allow us to check-in. We were given a newly renovated room with seaview. The room was roomy and modern. However, there is a paint stench in the room due to renovation. Another downside is that the TV reception for most of the channels are not good. All I can see are snowflakes on the TV. I have patronized the Peranakan restaurant in the hotel and the decorations, furnitures in the restaurant is very Peranakan and we liked the design very much. The size of the dishes in the menu are either medium or large size and the waitress said that since there are only the both of us, they will customize the dishes which cater for 2 person. That's thoughtful of them. This is my first time been to Malacca and I will stay in this hotel again if I ever visit Malacca again.
Recommendation: Jonker Walk, Chicken rice ball and Peranakan food.
