We stayed in this hotel for 2 days and 1 night. It’s a modern hotel building with inside (basement) parking which gave a safety feeling for us (unlike some hotels with adjoining malls which has the same parking lots for the hotel and malls guests). The reviews that we read are also very good. So far, nobody mentions about the long queue at the restaurant for breakfast, trouble with the hot water, or has to wait very long for the elevator (unlike other hotels which have that kind of reviews). So this was my choice since the first time we decided to go to Melaka.
The location is also very good, it is near to some shopping malls, sightseeing in Melaka, restaurants, and even has shuttle bus to Jonker Street and Dataran Palawan Mega Mall.
Surprisingly, although the pools looks ordinary, but we loved it so much. The water was so refreshing. I liked this one better than in Philea (in Philea the swimming pool’s floor is made from rocks which gave an uncomfortable feeling to my feet. So I was happy when I felt the ceramic floor in the swimming pool in Holiday Inn).
The staff was also friendly and helpful, and the check in and check out process were also quick.
The boy said it looked dangerous to swim there because he couldn’t see the edge of the pool, and I said it’s called infinity pool. He was still afraid until I showed him this:
We absolutely loved the breakfast. It had many variation of food, and it tasted delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. Although it was crowded, but we never run out of food because the staff replaced the food quickly.
This is a recommended hotel for families (kids stay and eat free). Minus point was that the hotel only gave free wi fi in the lobby. So this was what we did in our spare time:
