We decided to go with Hatten Hotel Melaka for two reasons. One was that I plan to bring my 4 yr old to the Coral Wonderland Aquarium which ia just across the road from Hatten. The other reason was tha Mahkota Parade was not far away, So my wife could go for her window shopping terapy. Check in was smooth cause we chose to check in on a weekday. Melaka gets really congested on weekends as well as holidays, especially roads around the historical sites. Ample parking is located in the Hatton Square which will be a difficulty upon weekends as customers for their shopping complex also share the same parking lot.
Hatten Hotel is enormous and also hectic especially on Chatterz their all day dining outlet up on level11 especially during breakfast. The room we got was rather large that had a living room with a sofa and a flatscreen TV. There's even a flatscreen TV inside the bedroom. There is no bathtub merely a shower stall and that is okay with me as we hardly use bathtubs nowadays. Our room overlooks the swimming pool on the 12th floor and so my 4 year old couldn't keep still in the room. Especially when he saw the stream water fountain firing right out of the bottom which was located next to kiddie swimming pool. The swimming pool is located on the12th floor along with the Gymnasium as well as Spa. There's a small bar at the poolside named Splash which serves drinks. You will discover just two food outlets as in Hatten Melaka, one was their all day dining restaurant named Chatterz and the poolbar named Splash. But food really should not be difficulty as you'll find so many food outlets all around, in the Mahkota Parade or also Hatten Square.
The thing which some might find problematic is the carpark, you have to go to the lobby or the11th floor. From there you must change lifts to go to your floor by putting your keycard into the slot in order to reach your floor. But this is a excellent difficulty with regards to each of our safety as non inhouse guest cannot access your floor.
The hotel is located near the Historical sites in Melaka. So you can park your car in the hotel and walk around, you don't have to drive the traffic jam. Also near to lots of food outlets and nightlife.
Melaka has a wealth of places to stay. Most of them are located in Chinatown, but keep your eyes peeled as with so much competition, and being in a historic city, means that the hotels are often unique, full of character and some are pretty cheap too.
I stayed one night at the Galileo Guest house in july 2012 and enjoyed the place a lot.
I had stayed the previous nights in another place and was about to leave, but had a bit of a cold so i decided to give it another night in Melaka and try a new Guest House and that was a very good choice.
Galileo Guest House is run by very friendly and hospitable people and the place is very clean and decorated in a quirky and charming way with lot's of color.
The receptionist showed me around the place when i got there and quickly pointed out to me that they had a cat at the guest house, just in case i had allergy towards cats.
I am a cat lover so i was totally fine there, but i thought it was very thoughtful of the guy to think of that.
My room was very nice and very clean andeven had my own personal computer aswell as free wifi.
I had no bathroom in my room, but they had shared bathrooms and that was fine with me.
Espcially when i think of the very fair price i was charged (55 Ringgitt cause it was a weekday).
This is a really nice place that i can only recommend if you want to stay in a small place where you can feel right at home.
Very service minded people running the place and very clean.
Hotel sixty Six is a typical modern day budget hotel that you see many of in Malaysia and i quite like these places.
they give you a small but functional room with air con and bathroom and the place is clean.
My room at the sixty Six was really small and i was travelling by bicycle and having my bike in the room and that was rather cramped, but i managed to get by.
The first two days i was there the place had endless powercuts, but it seemed to be the entire street having that problem so i will not blame this on the hotel.
My room cost me 50 Ringgitt a night which i thought was ok.
The hotel was run by a friendly family who were very easygoing so this was an ok stay for me.
Not a place i would rave about, but they deliverd what they were suppose to so no complaints from me.
Cheap and functional.
Hotel Puri had been booked out so decided to call this guesthouse which also belongs to the same management
warmly greeted by the person in charge of the phone and given a discount when aware of my long connection with Hotel Puri
catering to all visitors, Hotel Puri is for the discriminating travelers, Harmony Lodge is where you go when Hotel Puri is full or you only want to pay half the price and down the ladder is Cheng Ho Guest Hotel which is a basic guest house down the street 8 dollars cheaper
wi fi available free of charge
breakfast at the Cheng Ho Cafe, an added plus
at 88 RM for two, it is a bargain
one block from jonker street
right in the centre and you can walk everywhere, which is important in malacca
robert, very friendly who mans the desk
Stayed in the hostel for 1 night. Good location which is nearby hawker centres, shopping mall and all the main attractions in Melaka. Basically the town itself is relatively small so it is doable to go through all the touristy spots for 1/2 a day to whole day.
The room I had is decent. Aircondition is working fine. Blankets & towel need to be rented for 2 ringgit each, which is not a big deal. The hostel is well maintained and clean (though not really insanely spotless). You need to take off your shoes/sandals when going about the common room and into your own room, which is fine too. Though, I would have opted to still use slippers.
Bathroom is clean. There's a hot shower which is separate from the toilet, and a lavatory outside. Breakfast is free, which is bread and jam. tea is also serve. But I decided to just have mine in a nearby restaurant. Food is something that I splurge into anyway wherever I go.
WiFi is up and running fast within the hostel too
Overall, it is a nice place to stay over the weekend. Highly recommend it to fellow travelers.
We booked a triple sharing room via Asiawebdirect. Room rate is RM 82.85/room/night (include booking fee). The room is air-conditioned; although the room is not big but it is clean. There are no beds but thick mattress are provided. We stayed on the second level of the guesthouse and our room is in the hallway beside the 2 common bathrooms. It can be a bit noisy especially when the guests walk on the wooden floors on the hallway. It is definitely value for money for budget stay at a good location.
It is very convenient as it is directly located on Jonker street.
To say that the rooms here are small is a total understatement - they're minute - the smallest I ever slept in. My room just featured a mattress on the floor and measured about 8ft by 5ft with no window but it, strangely, had a/c. However, this place is very new with sparkling new communal bathrooms with hot water showers and toilets and a nice communal area downstairs with internet PC's and a kitchen where they serve breakfast which is included in the price of the room. I paid RM30 back in March 2009 but I think it's normally priced at RM35. It's fairly well located near the Tamil Methodist Church in Chinatown. OK, unless you're claustrophobic.
Aldy Hotel is a 3-star boutique hotel tucked away in the heart of Melaka.
It is in the "Red Centre" ot the “World Heritage Site” (UNESCO) of Melaka where many of the famous structures and landmarks are all painted in distinctive ochre red .
The hotel is adjacent to places of interest such as St. Paul Hill, Porta De Santiago, Little India and Mahkota Parade, the biggest shopping complex in Melaka.
Several restaurants and bars, a roof top restaurant as well - great views from here.
A great place in the middle of the historic area.
4 June 2010
We were not able to stay there because they were fully booked, however we were helped to find last minute alternative accommodation.
You can stay and trust this Tang family operation, in the middle of old town. (see their unique qualities).
We went to visit Tang family later afternoon, and were offered the use of their internet facility, free of charge ! Mrs Tang understand the needs of travellers to make what ever travel arrangement ie onward travel or contacting friends and family.........
we went there the next day morning for breakfast.
We were offered a set of coffee/tea, mee / beehoon, or egg burger or egg boiled, fried or scrambled and toasts. for the value of RM 3.50
They also cater for walk in travellers.
It is a between 2-3 star 5 storey high hotel. There is a very small lift at the left hand side of the lobby. Parking space is adequate with a 24 hours security guard. The room is getting old but very clean and free from dust and damp smell. Bath room need some refurbishment but it is clean with a bath tub. If the management could just lower the room rate to around RM110 nett, it will be a good bargain. My stay cost me around RM148 nett including breakfast and a set lunch for two pax during school holiday season. The hotel is located strategically in town centre.
It is around 10-15 minutes walking distance (Out from the hotel lobby, turned left and walk until the end of the road. Walk ahead and cross the road at the right hand side.) to Stadhuys, Museums and A Fomosa. Also very nearby to Jonkers Street (1 Km) where there is plenty of food such as chicken rice ball and cendul. At night those who know the direction to Capitol Satay Celup at Bukit Cina, can actually walk there because it is rather crowded and parking is a problem. You will be surprise that along the Jalan Bunga Raya (where Mimosa hotel is located) is actually quite vibrant with food stalls, night market and shops. The small Madam King shopping complex is just at the same row right hand side of the hotel.
Free Wifi is only available at the lobby and Coffee House. My room at the 5th floor has very weak signal, thus cannot access to Wifi.
Aldy Hotel Melaka is a 3-star boutique hotel tucked away in the heart of the historic Melaka . It is a sanctuary in the midst of historical landmarks, tourist attractions and shopping complexes .Situated in the "Red Centre" of Melaka where famous structures and landmarks like the Stadhuys, Clock Tower and Christ Church .
Its a nice, clean hostel. Location isnt too bad - its about a 10-15 min walk from the center.
I was only there for one night so didnt see too much of it, but the lounge area was nice and seemed good for meeting other travellers and the shared toilets and showers were all clean. It is surprisingly large and I did get lost getting to and from my room!
I decided to splash out and treated myself to a double with a/c and ensuite bathroom which was really nice and seemed rather new.
I was met at the bus station by one of the guys from the hostel and he was really helpful by pointing me in the right direction of the bus in to town and gave me a little map showing how to get there from the bus stop. Normally I would never take a room from a tout at the bus station but I had prebooked my accomodation through haystack - even though they had no details of my reservation there was no problem with getting a room.
Overall a good experience and I'd recommend it to other travellers.
One note - the phone numbers for the hostel on haystack and in Lonely Planet do not work.
Unless its a busy time of year you should be fine to just turn up.
It has a nice roof top terrace to chill out on. And if you take a taxi they try to use the services of a gentleman who I think was called Albert - he is SUCH a character - i have never had such an interesting cab ride! I wont say any more than that just wait till you meet him!
Just my 2 cents worth on the Aldy Hotel. The location is unbeatable - its literally one block
away from the famous red town square (Stadhuys area). Its at the foot of the hill which has the
ruins of St Paul located on top. At the foot of the hill on the other side lies the Malacca sultanate palace, the declaration of independence and the famed A. Famosa fort. If u dun want to climb the hill, just head right and there is a whole row of musuems. Walk past those musuems and you easily reach Mahkota shopping parade, the megamall of malacca. Turn left instead and you end
up at the red square where u can visit Christchurch, Stadhuys museum or buy lots of tacky
souvenirs!! The Malacca river is next to the square and you can try a cruise there. Across the
river via a bridge is the famed Jonker street . Be sure to check it out!
The hotel itself is relatively cheap, good value for money. Rooms are spacious and clean.
Service is good but the reception wont give u a morning call before 730 am! I had a special
promotion whereby I paid RM18 extra to enjoy all the items in the minibar! It was
psychologically thrilling to be able to guzzle all the criminally expensive items in the minibar:
2 cokes, 2 sprites, 2 Carlsberg beers, 2 cup noodles, 1 pringles, 1 mixed nuts, 1 cashew nuts, 1
pkt Doritos, 1 pkt Cheezels; not to mention the convenience =)
Breakfast is included but not a buffet. Choose the big breakfast set - it will fill you up; oh
and get the Aik Chong Hainanese coffee - its real good!!
As above. Why hasn't anybody reviewed this hotel before?!
What could be better than bunking with a bunch of VTers by the sea? Not much, I tell you! And, not only that, but I got to sleep in the 'girls'' room, with three other female VTers, all of us curled up on a mattress and box spring!
And, it was cool and spacious...and we were all tired and hot...(not to mention, a bunch of us were also injured) that it was a great place to relax and recover!
