The room is a bit too small for 4 person. The renovation workmanship is poor and the design and decoration need to be improved to increase the aesthetic value of the room even though the room rate is reasonable.
It was nice hotel if you wish to stay in a quiet neighborhood. However food and beverage outlets for halal food take a cab about 15mins drive to Malacca Central. If you need a cab, get a hotel staff to call as there is hardly any where you can flag by the road.
I have, on previous occasions, stayed at the Renaissance (now Ramada) and the service is no comparison. I spoke with the new manager and he is trying to teach new techniques to old staff, but is obviously is falling on deaf ears. The reception staff were not very welcoming and the concierge does not start until midday and the reception staff have no idea about things that tourists need to do. They didn't even know that there was a bus direct to KL airport, so I went back across the road to the Ramada and got the information immediately and when I was leaving early morning there was no one at the door and no one asked if I need a taxi - I didn't because in the meantime I had learn about the local buses - much cheaper than the taxis. The hotel is really very nice but I would opt for the Ramada in future.

we booked three junior suites for a sunday night stay recently. the hotel is magnificient overall. we were allocated the rooms facing the sea. the staffs are young but very friendly. we love the design of the room. to top it all, we were suprised that on a monday morning the buffet breakfast was extensive. many choices of fresh local and western food to pick from. the location of the hotel is perfect for walking distances to major tourist spots.
i hope the management will improve the tv channels....it hurt to watch world football in the room. the tv is not sharp and blur. will surely come back again.
