      Good location friendly staff

      No windows if off light, total darkness if on toilet light, green window makes it eerie

      The housekeeping was not properly done. The pillows were very dirty and there were significant yellow stains all over the pillow case. When we tried to call the reception requesting for a new pillow, the receptionist sounded unfriendly and frustrated. When the staff came to our room, he seems not to believe us that the pillow is dirty and wanted to make further checking. We were very disappointed with the service as we thought that they will exchange the pillow for us but instead they just came to check about how dirty the pillows were, as though we are telling lie or picking up over small defect. After seeing the stains, the staff brought back the pillow back and he just changed a new pillow case for us. Overall, we were very unhappy with how our problem was being handled. In fact, the blankets were also dirty but we did not bring it up as it wasn't that significant. No apologies rendered to us at all.

      It is good for the design of the house, very Chinese traditional.

      waitress seems know not enough about the Melaka.

      The location is very good. We were able to walk to the places that we wanted to visit

      The rooms do not have windows

      Its close to Jonker St and most of the heritage sites, so if u are thinking of a budget, decent and convenient place to stay in Melaka, this is it.

      Its pretty noisy, not from the streets but from the hotel guests. Their sound echos thru the long hall way and sound proofing isn't fantastic.

      The staff are very friendly. Location excellent, right next to Jonker Street. I like the room design.

      Musky smell from the pillows; insufficient car park space.

      The building itself is very old so values. It gives nice and interesting atmospher like in a old Chinese movies. That was an amazing experience.

      The organization and running skill for staff was not so professional. Seemed like hotel staff don't communicate each other well, so if any inconvenience happends we had to repeat things againa and again. That was frustrating.

      The location of the hotel is excellent as it is close to most of the places of interests in Melaka as well as nice eateries. The room facilities are comfortable despite the price.

      The breakfast could be much improved.

    • Group of friends

      Nice and cosy. Very relax atmosphere for a good get-away from work. The location is just a couple of minutes walk to the night market.

      The tv channels are very limited that's all.

    • Older travelers

      it was a charming old building with a lovely relaxing central courtyard. The room didn't have a window but the room was still nice.

      I suppose it would have been even better with a window but that is the price to pay for an old building.

      Right next to Jonker Street, hence never too far from good food...

      It met my expectations of a budget hotel. The bed is comfy and even though we didn't get the room with window, it is a blessing in disguise 'cos we ended up waking up late. The breakfast provided was minimal but very tasty. I'm not sure why some reviewers mentioned that they have to choose between mee goreng and western food. All of us gets to eat both mee goreng, toast, scrambled eggs, tomatoes and baked beans as much as we want. The lady keeps replenishing the food which makes it always warm. The environment is laid back, I love it and I enjoyed it. And to top that, it is just opposite to Jonker's street....shopping!!

      The location of the hotel is very good being just around the corner from Jonker St. The hotel room was quite basic and the aircon did take about an hour to cool the room down. We didn't have a room with a window and perhaps it would have been more pleasant with a window. All in all though, for the money, it was a reasonable place to stay.

      Walking distance to popular tourist street. Clean, good basic amenities. Maintained historical features. Friendly and helpful staff. Private parking.
