Cyclamen Cottage
Ranked #18 of 222 Melaka B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 December 2016

I can see cottage's efforts on their breakfast, drink, room cleanliness, adequacy of toiletries and service quality.

However, as the room had no ventilation system, it needed cold air to hydrate moisture (caused by shower) in the room. Due to the air conditioner in room Kunyit was not working properly (indifferent temperature between 16c or 28c), the room was moist and damp. Besides, wifi was often working, and unable to be connected frequently.

Conclusively, I will not revisit this inn again, but those who want to try nyonya-styled inn could give here a try.

Room Tip: Must check the air conditioner timely

I went to Melaka in a school trip, staying in Cyclamen Cottage for 5 nights, and it was an amazing experience because we occupied the whole cottage hence it was very casual and chill. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in a big group because it makes it gives you more freedom and you don't have to dress formal all the time because you might be the only ones in the cottage at that time. The staff is very hospitable and helping, making is a very comfortable experience.

Room advice: Take a room on the ground floor for easy accessibility to entrance and kitchen and not wanting to climb up and down every time (there is no lift). If you want peace, choose a room on the top floor. Don't choose 'Asam' as that's the noisiest.

Room Tip: First floor is quieter but ground floor has better Wi-Fi

Came here for a school trip and it was a lovely experience. Had a very spacious room to share with only one other person, facilities were great and convenient, and had great sleeping quality. Overall, had a very pleasant stay with all my school mates in this historical location.

This is a delightful, small inn in a former army barracks that has been restored. The barracks were from one of the historic periods of Malacan history, and everything is authentic. The owners were wonderfully accommodating. All in all, a very nice visit!

A classic Peranakan style hotel amidst a quiet neighbourhood with a beautiful garden. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated with old quality furniture. In-house cafe brings you back to old Colonial days with typical British Breakfast served with Nyonya delicacies. I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and classic Straits Chinese or Peranakan cultural artefacts. This historical heritage hotel is also reasonably priced and right across the road is a gourmet boutique restaurant that provide healthful servings of unique home-cooked specialties.

Room Tip: Lower floor a must if you have a heavy luggage
