We stayed a night at the Majestic over Chinese New Year. Traffic getting into Melaka from KL had been horrendous, so the easy parking, cool lobby and gracious welcome from the hotel manager and staff were a relief.
Hotel amenities, including bar, reception desk, lounge (with afternoon tea service) and restaurant are located in an historic mansion house. It is obvious that the mansion has been restored with loving attention to detail. With the CNY holiday, everything was also festively attired with red bows, lanterns and bowls of oranges.
Rooms are set behind the mansion in an 8 or 9 story building. It is located next to a hospital that lacks charm, but the rooms and hotel itself are thankfully oriented away from the hospital toward the Melaka River. The bathroom was incredible -- old, colonial style with new fixtures. The clawfoot tub was a relaxing way to shrug off stress. Some travellers, however, might not like the fact that there are no fixed walls between the sleeping area and the bathroom -- sliding wooden doors partition the space.
The hotel is located just north of the colonial area of town and Chinatown is across the Melaka River. But both areas are just 5 - 10 minute walk along the shaded and lively streets. The hotel offers two free walking tours of the city each day.
We enjoyed the buffet style breakfast. Delicious fresh juice and our servers remembered to offer more tea/coffee as we ate.
We would stay at the Majestic Hotel again.
