Positive Reviews

Ideal location for exploring the area

If you want to stay right in the centre of Malacca where you can easily walk to many major attractions, this motel is an ideal choice in that regard – a sentiment shared by many previous guests. Jonker Street and the Stadthuys are both a short stroll from the property.

Friendly staff

Most former visitors have applauded the staff members working at the accommodation. In general, the customer service was labelled as warm and friendly.

Clean and tidy throughout

Despite complaints on occasion, the majority of past guests had favourable feedback for the motel's cleanliness. From the rooms to the bathrooms, the entire property was often said to be well-maintained and clean.

Negative Reviews

Cramped and basic rooms

The accommodation's rooms have proven to be a source of criticism for numerous previous visitors. As well as being basic with very little in the way of amenities – including private bathrooms in some cases – the rooms were said to be small with limited space for moving around.

Noise can be troublesome

Thanks in part to its central location, external noise was a problem when staying at the motel. In addition to this negative point, former guests have noted that the soundproofing of the rooms was ineffective in blocking out the noise.

Security issues

According to the opinion of numerous past visitors, security measures at the accommodation could be improved. Along with a supposed lack of personnel on-site on a 24-hour basis, the doors were also described as having old lock systems and can be opened somewhat easily as a result.
