“Amazingly Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The service and staff here were impeccable! Everyone was amazingly friendly, helpful, and generous. From the front desk and lobby staff to the club lounge and housekeeping staff, there was an incredibly personalized and professional feeling from everyone. Rooms were very clean, bright, and comfortable. The pool is huge and great for swimming laps or just relaxing, but bring sunscreen and flip flops because the sun is brutal. Wish we had more time for the spa.

Location is good too, close enough to everything but far enough from the crowds. The Jetty is a pier for clubbing, bars, and restaurants right behind the hotel, and two malls are across the street, so there are lots of alternatives to sightseeing. Its best to go sightseeing in the morning before the sun gets too intense, stop off for noodles or Indian cuisine for lunch, then hit the pool or mall in the afternoon to beat the heat before going out for the evening. Wish we had more time here.

Room Tip: Stay on the Club floor with a Straight facing view.

The Holiday Inn Melaka is the most delightful place to stay. Just far enough away for the hussle of Jonker street, but easy walking distance to the old part of town and all it has to offer. Breakfast has to be the most amazing experience and has something to suit everybody. The pool is a great place to start or finish the day and the wonderful beds offer a fabulous nights sleep. The room is spotless and the housekeeping staff fast and efficient. The sauna and steam room are well maintained and ideal for getting rid of the aches and pains from a big day of exploring this historical city.

Room Tip: Book a Straits View room for relaxing with a water view

The town of Melaka has an ambiance that's so endearing to the tourist, and to enjoy everything that the town has to offer, there is no better place to stay in than Holiday Inn, which is within walking distance from all the best attractions.
The staff is very courteous,and helpful.The rooms are very well kept and the sunset from the sea facing rooms was a very nice spectacle. The swimming pool is also very inviting.
The CBD is just across the hotel as are the main places of interest.
It was a very nice and comfortable stay for us

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms that are sea-facing offer a grand view of the sea, especially in the evening, and a...

Great view , great room , great location , the only setback was the fruit plater in the room - stale strawberries . I surely can't complain about Holiday Inn services as I did not experience any F & B or other amenities but I think I will stay again the next visit

Room Tip: If you want a sea view where you can look over the island and the ships passing through you have to...
