Over The Majestic Malacca
Dit hotel ademt de historische sfeer van de stad waarin het gelegen is. Het koloniale verleden is overal in de details terug te vinden. Toch zijn er ook moderne kanten aan het hotel; het verleden wordt geëerd, terwijl er gebruik gemaakt wordt van de gemakken van tegenwoordig. Dit ziet u ook terug in de prachtige kamers. Deels traditioneel ingericht maar met moderne gemakken als een televisie en compleet ingerichte badkamer. Het hotel biedt u daarnaast een spa voor een stukje extra ontspanning en beschikt over een bar en restaurant. Zo heeft u alles binnen handbereik!

Malacca is een gezellige stad met veel overblijfselen uit het kleurrijke verleden van Maleise sultans en Portugese en Engelse kolonisten. Ook de Nederlanders hebben hier hun sporen achtergelaten, zoals de opvallend roodgekleurde Christ Church en het Stadthuys. In de nabijgelegen St. Paul's Church liggen zelfs nog grafstenen met oude Nederlandse teksten.
U kunt Malacca bezoeken op een dagtocht vanuit Kuala Lumpur, maar het is ook zeer zeker de moeite waard om hier ook te verblijven. Dan ervaart u de stad en de sfeer op haar best.
"Value for money 4/5 stars quaint hotel"
I have been to Malacca numerous times. It is the first time I have managed to book this hotel. The frontage of this quaint hotel is a refurbished traditional Malaccan villa which the reception, restaurant and bar is located. The accomodation block is constructed at the rear of this villa. The receptionists are all friendly and helpful. At several points in the quaint reception hall are large bottles filled with mini-biscuits, nuts and sweets for the guests to help themselves to. This was very nostalgic of the 60s. The cold towel served upon arrival was indeed refreshing especially for my wife and I after a 2.5hr drive from Singapore. The receptionist brought us to our room and served us tea from a tea basket which was common in the 60s. The tea basket was used to insulate and keep the hot tea warm. There was both a bathtub and shower cubicle in the room. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom by 2 sets of sliding doors. The bed is comfortable. We like it to be firm. The hotel is conveniently located for one to access the famous tourist street, Jonker Walk and the Red Square. There is also local food nearby. Indeed our 1 nite stay was very pleasant. We booked another hotel for our 2nd night in Malacca beforehand. If not for the non-cancellation package which I signed up for the next hotel, I would have preferred to spend another night in The Majestic Malacca. I will definitely go back and stay at this hotel when I am back in Malacca again.
I took a cooking class with chef Khay Tamano. It was held in an outside courtyard in a beautiful setting. Chef Khay Tamano explained the cooking of the sambal terung (eggplant with seminal) and pong teh (a chicken dish) very clearly and gave me many hints about the making of the paste for both dishes. I would highly recommend this class and if you are lucky enough to have our chef you will be more than satisfied.
Days before our trip, I called the hotel to ask for suggestions in what bus, drop off point, etc. since my sister and I were flying to Singapore & would take a bus to Malacca. The front office staff was very helpful. Our hotel reservation stated that check-in time was 3:00 pm but when we arrived at past 1:00 pm we were immediately accommodated. The front office staff was very gracious and even suggested places of interest that we might want to visit aside of course from the heritage walk. I love the way the welcome tea was served. A knock on the door in the evening surprised us with a plateful of Malacca sweets! This was my second time in Malacca (first time in Majestic) so I was expecting the same (impersonal) hotel ambience as the one I first stayed, but the Majestic truly surprises!
"Beautiful hotel. Way too noisy."
Everything about the hotel is beautiful from the lobby to the rooms. Absolutely tranquil in appearance, and the rooms are very comfortable. Great beds, lounge, bathtub.... Unfortunately the sound proofing is horrible. We could hear every drop of water running through the pipes anytime any room near us turned on a tap. That was mostly ok, as it's a gentle white noise that didn't really bother us, but it was noticeable. If you're really sensitive, this could be a problem. Unfortunately, on our last night we had a very noisy family move in next door. They smoked (against hotel policy), and the smoke came through the openings around the adjoining door. Our room smelled worse and worse. The family seemed to have several guests, and there was a lot of noise - doors slamming, loud voices, furniture moving. We called the front desk, and they did offer to move us to another room, but this all started at 10PM, so we were already in bed and didn't want to get dressed and pack up. We asked reception to speak with the guests about the smoking and the noise, and they seemed very reluctant. They said they would, but we never heard the phone ring next door or anyone from the hotel go to their door. Eventually they must have gone to bed, but they got up ridiculously early and we were treated to excessive amounts of throat clearing (from all that smoking, I guess). At check-out, we were expecting some mention and possibly some consideration of the unpleasant experience we had reported, but none came. A low point in otherwise good service. We overall loved the hotel, but I'm honestly not sure what we'll do on our next trip to Malacca.
"A classic hotel - a good find"
This hotel's rooms are in a modern building that is adjacent to a charming old building that holds reception, the restaurant and the bar. There are rooms and areas to relax in the reception area for a drink. The breakfast was not a stand out but was perfectly adequate. As others have noted the rooms are an open plan and the configuration of the bathroom does not guarantee absolute privacy or discretion. Having said that the rooms are very pretty and the sleep quality was fantastic. This was a very comfortable mattress! The main sights are all walking distance and the hotel is has eateries close by.The swimming pool looked inviting but we didn't try it as it was raining during our one afternoon in town. The hotel was very happy to help us organise transfers. I would certainly stay here again.
