Rooms are large and affordable, also clean. The best thing, when you come to Kota Lodge, you will feel in your home. Because, people behave like your family since they are so sincere ☺ Another thing is that you can arrive all of places from this hotel by walking. Briefly, If you come to Melaka, you should choose Kota Lodge hotel to save your money, and feel good ☺

Plus: Great location. Near Jonker street and famous places. Ms.May - owner hotel very nice and polite. This is an ancient Chinese hotel.
Minus: Small room. Our group was booked 2 family rooms. 1 of there have not freeze inside. Everything in this hotel maybe "old", haha.
There is no soap in the bathroom. The towel holder almost come off. The bathroom was without a latch for a day. However the staff is friendly and helps a lot in showing the direction to go certain. Highly recommanded to those who are looking for a cheap and near jonker street to stay!!!:)

Room Tip: attached bathroom is a plus

Fantastic choice of a hotel for travellers on a budget but not to the extend of a backpacker's budget

Pros:
1. OMG the location is amazing! Jonker Street is a few mins walk away. It's near enough for walking, but not too near that it's too crowded2
2. Sun May Hiong Satay, Pak Putra, Limbongan Burger, Nancy's Kitchen are all within 1 km away! We walked to all the places, so at least you burn off what you eat! and Kedai Kopi Soon Yen (great nyonya laksa, duck noodles, nyonya kuih!) is only ~2km away!
3. Simple but adequate. Really basic amenities but it's really just a room to return to at night. It has an attached bathroom & honestly that's all i wanted =)
4. Enough free parking for guests.

Cons:
1. Room walls are thin; you can hear everything LOL
2. Is super, super, super simple...basically a bed, a table with mirror, and a TV =)

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Try asking for rooms at the back...else it's a bit noisy as walls are thin

We stayed for 2 nights in Kota Lodge in a triple-room.

It looks a bit run-down but overall, serves it function well as a cheap place to rest after a tiring's day of exploration.

We were given the last room on the first level, which was way back of the hotel (they have a second level, accessed by staircase). It came with a dedicated shower/toilet and is a conducive room for resting - quiet, away from the road. Room was fairly clean, I swipe the floor with a moist wipe and hardly any stains were picked up.

Amenities: soap bar x2, flat-screen television, clothes hanger (can ask from the staff if not sufficient or not provided in the room), a table with 2 shallow drawers (we placed out luggage on top), free wifi. No water or kettle is provided, you can walk to the pantry located next to the check-in counter and serve yourself hot/cold water. They provide coffee/tea in the morning from 9am to around 11am.

Location: located within walking distance from the Jonker Street night market (takes place ever Fri-Sun). Small shops along the walk to Jonker street sells a lot of traditional snacks that are hardly seen these days in the city. For other attractions within Malacca, if you have an elderly and kid(s) in tow, it is best to drive and park in proximity to the heritage attractions.

Room Tip: Choose the room at the back of the hotel which is quieter.
