The hotel is just a walking distance to most attractions- river cruise, melaka church, hard rock cafe, the 'big boat' and malls. Their buffet breakfast will surely provide you the energy to roam Melaka's historic sites while fighting the scourging heat of the sun. Stayed August 2014.

Pro: The location is a stone throw away from town. Would be very good hotel if you have car coz they have underground carpark which I'd feel is a little bit more secure than parking on the side of the road. They also provide some toiletries like shower gel/shampoo and lotion. Con: Certainly value for money. Just don't expect 5*...

Well situated, as the name suggests, on riverside. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with all amenities. It's an old facility which has been decently maintained and gives you an old aura from its corridoors onwards. No frills may be expected but it was a fair stay overall. Those parking their vehicle in the basement may be disappointed to drag their...

We got a room the aircond remote cannot adjust anything. And the room I request is for single bed queen size, they give us double bed. The hotel nearby the music water at the night time only. Also the view of river is not there during our breakfast because of the renovation.

Stay once last year was OK. However this time it terrible. The aircon was noisy, the water sink jammed, the water flow out was brownish. I stay here as it near jonker. But will not returned again until renovation. The staff is however friendly, that why I give 2 stars.
