My partner and I booked this guest house two days before our planned arrival through Asia Rooms. When we arrived at about midnight the man working there had not received our booking and we had to wait for him to process it. He showed us our room, a double with air conditioning. We immediately regretted our choice to stay here.... More

Budget hotel. No frills but quiet and comfortable and in a good location. Fridge not working and no tea or coffee but had a kettle. A few tea or coffee bags would have been appreciated. Staff were helpful. Enjoyed Melaka and breakfasts at Hari Aum around the corner if you like roti for breakfast,

It's a small and clean lodge, situated in the back streets, near the heritage centre. Recommend it for its location, budget and friendly staff. Near Jonker street with lots of food options nearby. Had a thoroughly enjoyable experience in Melaka, positively recommend strolling by the river in the evening .... Great photo opportunities ... Overall, it's a different experience than... More

This place wasn't much 3 years ago, but at least it was clean. The same friendly lady at the counters, calling everybody "Darling", the same ladyboy assistant, but the rooms are smelly, the AC in urgent need of replacement, and the small fridge better left unopened. After one night we moved to the ABC hotel next door, which is brand... More

Kota Lodge is a good place to stay if you don't want to pay a lot and want to be near, but not in, the Heritage Center. Although there is no food at the hotel, if you ask, the staff will point you in the direction of an area with "hawker" restaurants for dinner and a nearby cafe for breakfast.... More

Had a great stay here. Owner May is a real bundle of energy and even cooked us up a cup of local brew coffee. Rooms are clean, shower hot and strong, we even had a wee balcony. Short wander into the Jonker Walk area so perfectly placed. The price was great value for money.

With an excellent location (once you find your way through the metal gate and the buildings straight to Jonker Street), friendly staff, budget prices and clean rooms, Kota Lodge boasts good value for money in the heart of Malacca. Laundry, nice restaurants, Internet cafe and a 7-Eleven are nearby. Just don't expect a 5 star hotel, because Kota Lodge doesn't... More
