Wouldn't say this is the best hotel in terms of service and cleanliness but the location is really great if you are going over the weekends to enjoy the night market at Jonker Street.
ROOMS - Booked the Quad room. Cleanliness was not the best but acceptable. Air conditioning was superb and it cooled the room really quickly. Read some reviews about smell coming out from the toilet piping etc but it was generally fine for me. Experienced it once for a short 1 hour and the smell was gone. Television channels were extremely fuzzy but didn't really bother me as i didn't really watch it. Free Wifi in room.
BREAKFAST - Again, not the best. Small variety. Better off grabbing something light and heading out for a heartier breakfast. Some of the recommended food like Poh Piah Lwee and Jonker88 are 5min walk away from the hotel.
LOCATION - 3 min walk to the happening Jonker Street / Night Market. 15min walk to the clock tower/ famous red building. 15min drive from Melaka Sentral Bus Terminal and would only cost u 7RM if you take a GrabCar. However, if you are looking to stay near shopping centres, it is best to stay on the other side near Hatten Square.
This hotel is different from your regular new and pristine hotel. If you like the rustic, peranakan look that have a tinge of Malacca culture, this is the place for you.
