Positive Reviews

A warm welcome to Melaka...

Travellers often describe the owner of the property as very kind, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the city. New visitors are particularly grateful for the directions, maps, and suggestions provided.

Clean, comfortable rooms...

Guests describe the rooms as sparkling clean and simply decorated, with comfortable beds, fairly strong Wi-Fi, and hot showers. Most rate the hotel highly in terms of value for money.

See the city on foot...

Guests like that the hotel's location is within walking distance of the city's best attractions. Fit travellers can walk to Jonker Street in a breezy 10-15 minutes, though most find it takes 20 minutes or more, particularly with young children in tow. Guests are also pleased to report that there are plenty of places to eat nearby, including a Chinese restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel.

Negative Reviews

A high traffic area...

Guests often comment that the hotel is located close to a busy intersection, and travellers in front-facing rooms have found traffic noise to be an issue well into the wee hours.

A hidden gem...

Some guests have expressed difficulty finding the hotel, noting that the hotel's discreet entrance is somewhat overshadowed by the Famosa Chicken Rice Ball's eye-popping sign. Travellers also note that the hotel does not have a 24-hour front desk, so guests arriving after the check-in time should make prior arrangements with the owners.
