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.
"Lovely building shame about the food"
We ate in the restaurant when it was the " soft launch" of the celebrity chefs menu, sadly! There must have been meltdown in the kitchen. Perhaps the celebrity chef should have been in the kitchen and not in the restaurant talking to diners! We waited, along with several other people nearly an hour for our food. When it arrived it was lukewarm and of a very poor quality. My " local" chicken dish was tasteless, I hardly ate it. I could continue but that is enough! To the credit of the hotel manger, he very quickly saw our displeasure and made no charge for our meal or drinks. Let's hope things improve ! The old building is vey attractive , the bedrooms however are in a modern block. We were not keen on the bathroom being behind sliding louvre doors thus making it part of the bedroom, but that is personal preference. What we disliked most was the poor soundproofing. If someone used the shower in an adjacent room it was very loud. The hotel is some way from the history centre which in the heat is a disadvantage. We stayed in a sister hotel to the Majestic in The Cameron highlands and were much more impressed with the standard of food and service there. Sorry Majestic.
"Majestic it was."
Found the Majestic to be a very nice hotel with very pleasant staff. The room was very pleasant and first impressions of our room was wow. The hotel had been a private house but now had been extended as a hotel.
"Not feeling majestic..."
Went to stay at Majestic Melaka on Christmas Eve with family to enjoy a stay at a luxurious hotel. However, the experience we received was way below my expectation. What can be improved: * Some welcome drinks would be nice. When we checked in, we were told that we had to wait for around 1 hour as we arrived early. It would be nice to have a glass of cold welcome drink while we wait in the lobby for our rooms after a long drive. * Service with a smile. When our room was ready the staff brought us to our room, I guess she had a bad day cause there was a permanent frown on her face as she zoomed ahead of us while we were struggling to keep up pace with her with our bags and 2 young kids. I would be fine with a small smile and she asking someone to help us with the bags. It was a long walk from the lobby to the hotel room. * Have a little patience when dealing with customers. When I asked her if we can change our complimentary dinner with some tea and cakes as we have dinner appointment, i was rudely answered with a "No!" When I ask why, I was told "Price difference!". When I inquired if the tea and cake is more expensive than the dinner for 2, I was responded with a bigger frown and an "I'll check" which I suspected was code for "No! stop asking". Didn't get to change to tea in the end. I would be fine with a polite explanation that it was the hotel policy to be inflexible with these changes. * Give your guests clean cups. The hotel do provide a pot of tea and matching cups in a very nice tea holder after we enter the room. However, there were lipstick stains on 3 of the 4 cups! I thought it was the cup design but the stains came off when I washed it in the sink. What I like about the hotel: * There's a fan in the room in case the aircon is too cold. * To be fair, the doorman and car park attended was very polite and attentive. In summary: * Basically, these are the experiences I would expect from a 3 star hotel, not from a luxury hotel.
"Nice Colonial Hotel"
The style of the hotel is lovely and central.Decor of room -very colonial which is nice with modern ammenities Even though we booked 2 rooms with twin beds - they were not able to accommodate and only provided one room with twin bed.
"The place to stay in Malacca"
The Majestic is a charming hotel, brimming with nostalgic style. It's not opulent 5 star luxury but it is a delightful place to stay. The original hotel has been turned into the public areas: on the ground floor a small bar, a lounge area where afternoon tea is served and reception, with the breakfast room upstairs. All the rooms are in the new block behind the original building: the extension has been done with style and the character of the original building has been preserved. When arriving stay alert: it's a rather unannounced and sharp right turn into the hotel itself. But it's a lovely driveway and entrance; the staff will park your car for you in the car park beside the hotel. Pluses: very good staff and service with lots of smiles; well-appointed rooms; good breakfasts (although the berry jam seemed to appear on all waffles, french toast etc. so let them know if you don't want that); very pleasant atmosphere. Negatives: rather a lack of privacy in the bathrooms - sliding louvered doors block sight but not sound; although we didn't eat dinner there, a friend said that their meal wasn't outstanding and that they started hoovering around them at 9:30...Melaka is famed for its food and we ate out (good recommendation by the hotel for local peranakan food: Manis J, just 5 minutes walk). There is a small pool and a small gym: 3 or 4 cardio machines, some cable machines and a limited number of free weights - it's compact with not much floor space, fine for a workout but you wouldn't want too many people in there at once. Do take advantage of the free guided walk, which was really interesting - a couple of hours when you see local craftsmen and the back streets as well as the usual tourist sights. Many hotel visitors have visited Melaka several times and you may end up (like us) having a private tour. We took a long time exploring and ended up seeing the Stadhuys and A Formosa ourselves, which is a good way of doing it. It's 15 minutes by foot to the historic centre: an easy walk, although there is some (inevitable) construction going on which means that some of the sidewalks are out of action. Most visitors to Melaka are day-trippers (either locals or Chinese tour groups) and note that some of the local eateries will close at 6 or 6:30. If you escape Jonker street and the unbelievable tourist tat around the Stadhuys then you will come across some delightful bars and cafes along the river or down the back streets (have a local drop in Sin Hiap Hin in Java St.).
