A great place with all the trappings of luxury...the hotel is not in the centre but an easy 15 minute walk to the centre of malacca...there are many typical places to eat too close by and a shopping mall about 5 minutes walk away.

If you are looking for five star bling, you won't find it at The Majestic. However if you want great service in tasteful understated comfort, then this small hotel with an intimate feel is made for you. I would particularly recommend Bob who is a great front of house ambassador and went to extraordinary lengths to satisfy our various requests.... More

We loved this beautiful hotel. The reception area and upstairs dining area are an original old building, the hotel extension behind has been well designed and decorated to maintain the atmosphere throughout. The service was exceptional. Bedroom was clean and elegant. Loved the bathroom! Wifi was good. Breakfast very good but buffet tables could have been replenished a little quicker.

Beautiful old building housing the reception, bar and restaurant. A small outdoor pool lies between this building on route to the Spa and bedrooms. Our room was spacious and I liked being able to close off the bathroom. The staff are so friendly, helpful and efficient which made our stay very enjoyable. It would be nice to have a more... More

Beautiful hotel, away from the touristy madness near Jonker and yet within walking distance. The cleanliness is immaculate, the service top notch. Facing the Morten village, there're money changers nearby and the mall across the street at the newly-built The Shore.

This hotel is a charming colonial mansion stands in the heart of Malacca. The river and waterside path right in front of the hotel. Take the river boat by night; the boat almost drop off within steps to the hotel.

Very pleasant hotel in excellent location, but poor food. Staff polite but appear inexperienced. Evening restaurant lacks any atmosphere. Wouldn't rush back. Feels as if the hotel,is geared to short stay tourists.
