“Clean and basic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

This is a relatively new, small hotel towards the Friday, Saturday and Sunday Malay night market end of Melaka, within 15 mins walk of Jonkers St. We found that it had that 'new smell' of fresh paint and the cleanliness that comes from not being used yet. We booked over the internet about two months prior and stayed over the New Year period. On checking-in, we were asked to pay for the full stay in advance. We were surprised at this and said we would pay for one night's accommodation and assured them that we were seasoned travellers and need not pay prior to receiving the service. The rooms were rather small, had a kettle and cups but no coffee or tea and there was no bar fridge. When we asked for some ice, they supplied us with a small bag of ice which someone obtained from a nearby restaurant. We placed our drinks on ice in the sink. On the internet, we were told that the rooms had a safe but when we looked in our room there was none to be found. When we queried this, we were told that our room did not have a safe. Each room had an ensuite bathroom, however the toilet was in the same room as the shower (similar size as on a yacht) - if you dropped the soap in the shower/toilet area, it was somewhat difficult to pick up due to lack of space. Shampoo, shower gel and soap were provided along with toothbrushes and tissues. We stayed for 5 days. There was no place to put our toiletries, nowhere for bags/luggage other than the floor, 3 coathangers were provided but there was nowhere to put remaining clothes for more than a night or so. There was a queensize bed which was pushed into the corner up against a wall leaving about a one metre space on the opposite side. An LCD tv hung from the ceiling. Considering we were paying approx. $50 (holiday surcharges included) per night, for the location, proximity to many attractions, restaurants and markets, we spent the rest of our allocated money on food, drink and entertainment over our stay!

Room Tip: Away from noise/light of the night markets on the weekend - they can go on until 2:00am. Pay extra a...

The hotel was almost fully-reserved on the New Year's Eve but luckily I have managed to make a last minute booking of its twins room. I made my reservation through phone call but I feel that the hotel should make some improvements on its reservation service. I sent them a confirmation email to state that I have made a deposit payment through internet banking but their reply was not as friendly as I have expected. The least I expect was a direction map to the hotel as the one on their website was not that clear.

Anyways, the hotel was strategically located near the shopping malls and Taming Seri (5-10 mins walk). It is about 10 minutes drive to Jonkers Street on a good day (no jam) and there are food stalls everywhere within walking distance (there was a night market on Saturday). I would say the room, although windowless and small - is worth the money for its cleanliness and strategic location.
