I read your generally unfavourable reviews and booked anyway; three star accommodation usually has a three star price tag and since we only intended to sleep and shower in the hotel our expectations were simple. There is no doubt that the Malacca Straits has seen better days, looking a little run down at present, but the reception staff were friendly...

Most hotels in melaka were fully booked but this hotel had rooms. When we reached there, our experience at the front desk revealed why. It was just massive confusion. The group infront of us had problems that left them visibly annoyed. The hotel did not have our reservation but thank goodness we had the print out. We complained to the...

This hotel was way over-priced for what we paid. The women at the front desk kept us at the desk for 20 minutes prior to checking in because she had added additional charges onto our booking.com total but could not explain what they were for. We then said we wait until the morning and discuss with her manager which we...

Good Service - after booking the hotel, the hotel noticed that they are not able to do verification for credit cards and requested me to do a transfer of the money to their local bank account. However, as a non resident of Malaysia, of course I won't have a Malaysia bank account to do transfer. After speaking to the staff,...

Just returned from a one nighter in Melacca. As it's a public holiday in Malaysia this weekend the whole of Malacca was booked out leaving us with the proverbial Hobson's choice of hotels. Anyway, the Malacca straits Hotel is a reasonably priced establishment that lacks the frills or location benefits that some of the other hotels can offer. It's only...

If you're going to stay for a night or two in Malacca on a business trip, I think this hotel is still okay because location are quite strategic... We're travelling in a group of 9 people so car park is the most important factor as we've 5 cars and 1 lorry truck which park nicely at the roadside... Since we're...

The pictures on the website for this hotel was so deceptive. To my disgusts, the room has got a very strong smell which doesn't goes off even after we tried to air it for a while.

“The soundproofing is quite good, but better to go for a higher floor away from the road, which is busy all night.”

“Don't bother to stay in a suite unless you love a spa bath, all the rooms are large but in a suite you also get a spa bath. We had one but didn't use it - wouldn't be surprised if it didn't work very well anyway!”
