First impression, the hotel is smaller than expected. Luckily it was comfy with extra comfy beddings and pillows. Quite generous too with the pillows and bolster. We stayed in the deluxe family room so it was reasonably spacious. Room was also spotless and sufficient amenities...More

About
Description
Step away from the hustle and bustle of city life and surround yourself with luscious greenery, where you’ll be greeted with a picturesque garden view as you wake up in The Rucksack Caratel - Garden Wing. Soak up the More rich heritage of Melaka in attractions such as the Melaka Sultanate Palace and Christ Church that are a short walk away. You can also grab souvenirs or personal loots in Dataran Pahlawan and Jonker Street – both minutes away from our uniquely heritage-blended hotel. Besides being close to numerous attractions, The Rucksack Caratel itself is a mystery adventure, waiting to be unboxed. Less
