The Sterling Boutique Hotel Melaka
Ranked #32 of 169 Hotels in Melaka
Reviewed 13 November 2017

This small hotel has a nice external facade and this is probably what you pay for.
Otherwise it is very ordinary. Good thing is that they have a carpark but because of the one way streets in Melaka city, you need to make a big loop to get to the hotel. If you decide to stay here, it is better to walk out instead of driving. Car parking is horrendous in the city centre.

The famous Capitol satay is round the corner and you can also walk to the red building and Jonker's street and Hardrock Cafe.

Hotel is clean and in good working condition. Rooms are large and comfortable.
No major complains here except that you may probably find better deals.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet

It's locally centrally to all the places of interest.. Got mini marts around.. Food shops nearby too.. Very clean and perfect for family to stay with small kids.. We enjoyed the stay so much and no flaws!

The room was clean but the highlight was the jacuzzi in the bathroom. It was just right for relaxing after a day out walking and was just the thing to prep for a good night’s sleep, after being warmed by the gentle massage of spraying water.

Check in for one night stay for family room with jacuzzi for the family short getaway holiday.

First room
- toilet flush malfunction
- floor carpet wet due to the jacuzzi leaking ( the staff inform they knew the problem when changing room , still they still offer the room for us ) damn unprofessional is not that they do not have others room.

Second room
- on the mist of showering with my son in the jacuzzi suddenly heard “pop” sound of short circuit . I was damn worried both of me and my son will be electrocuted however fortunately I still able to write the review . The unfortunately thing is both air conditioning and the jacuzzi is out of service . Guess what , no more jacuzzi for us. Room replacement again .

Due to no more family room their purpose an option for me. Can I offered you a queen size room for you family ( I think the receptionist is lack of common sense , she offered queen size bedroom for 2 adult and 1 children . If I want to be cramp like that why I go booked the family room ) after Neoh with them only they want to offer the link room for us ( 1 queen and 1 twin single) due to my son already hungry I left immediate after room changing.

Room 3 & room 4
- guess what after we come back to the hotel , one of the bathroom shower not working , I need to move all the thing to others room for bath . Damn irritating and tiring.
- my son is crying like hell due to he unable to play in the jacuzzi .It really not my day , my holiday mood has been ruined.

I dunno how the hell this hotel get 4 star
-crappy service by reception ( untrained personnel)
-unreasonable high breakdown of utilities ( even knowing changing room still they did not perform checking before let us stay)
- most importantly safety of stay , I believe 1 time of changing room due to facilities breakdown is acceptable , second time is bad luck however for third time the room still breakdown I called “NO MAINTENANCE AT ALL" . You dunno what will happen to you because of the equipment / facilities failure .

Please totally avoid this hotel , there are plenty around Melaka . Don’t even think this hotel ,what written in the website when come it might all broken down.

The staff were generally helpful and tried to make our stay comfortable. However, we had a problem making card payment for our stay when we arrived in the early hours. This embarrassing situation was only resolved with a payment by American Express. The breakfast was mainly aimed at local tastes rather than European but there was enough choice to get by. There were rather too many flies about, a local hazard obviously, but not enough effort made to cover the food. The room decor and fittings were a little tired but were clean. Overall a good budget hotel for a short stay.
