Overall, our experience was excellent, and good value. The highlight was the included breakfasts which were outstanding with ala carte egg dishes - eggs benedict anyone - and real quality with the nasi lemak, cheeses, meats, juices, mei siam, fruits, even a latte prepared for you. The staff were all welcoming and professional. The room was large with a separate...

Excellent boutique hotel for the businessman or family. Large and well equipped rooms with nice views. Very near to the tourist spots. Look out for their sumptuous "big breakfast". Easy parking. Book early.

The room is big enough to be called a suite. The atmosphere is relaxing and the view on the river is wonderful. The staff is skilled and helpful. On the rooftop the swimming pool is probably the best of Melaka due to the view. Even if drinking a cocktail on the rooftop is nice I'm not sure it's the best...

We stayed here for two nights to explore Melaka and strolled along Jonker's street. Perfect place to stay, very spacious rooms, excellent services. Breakfast offers a variety of dishes, just fresh fruit could be a bit more attractive! :-)

I stayed here with my parents and son for a couple of nights in early January. The hotel is beautiful, clean, and full of staff that really understand what customer service means.

This is large Portugese/Spanish style hotel very well located right on the river side and next to the historic centre. We could easily drop back for cooling swims in the very high heat. The staff were very helpful, arranging for a seafood restaurant visit one night and taxi for the 20 mins ride each way, and although heavily booked, they...

My wife and I enjoyed staying in this hotel. Very good location - within 150 metres from Jonker Street. The staff are cheerful and helpful.

We stayed at this hotel back in 2014 and we booked the Deluxe River View. We love the room so much, it was cozy and romantic at the same time. The room size is just okay, not much space. There was a 2-steps staircase in the room which is not so suitable for family with baby/toddler as they may climb...
