    Nice, quirky hotel

    Had a lovely stay here for 3 nights. Melaka in general was a lovely place, and having this hotel tucked away from all the crowds was also great. Our room overlooked a nice garden and was fairly clean. The entrance to the hotel was always really quirky more of a hostel feel which wasn’t a bad thing. The pool was also an added bonus as it’s always nice to cool down after the heat throughout the day. So overall for what you pay this is and excellent little place which I’d highly recommend if your in Melaka for a short stay.

    Comfortable and friendly hotel with lovely views over the Sultanate's garden. It's in a quiet dead-end street just 5 min walk from the central town square area. Breakfast tasty, decor groovy and pool small but pleasant.
