Hallmark Hotel Malacca Town Reviews
5-Star Wannabe at a 2-Star Price Jan 12, 2010
I hadn't heard of the Hallmark hotel before my weekend trip with the family to Melaka.
I wasn't expecting much in terms of rooms, especially when I've stayed in 2-star hotels before that looked and felt old, ones where you can smell the damp from not airing the rooms after the airconditioning is switched off for a long while...
The hotel occupies about 80% of a block of four-storey shop-offices along Jalan Portugis(Portuguese St), but we hadn't seen any street signs leading up to it. We actually got lost and had to call the hotel for directions. A minute later we arrived and walked into a typically Chinese-owned hotel, with the obvious fonts that spelt Hotel Hallmark on the front desk, and some watercolour painting of bamboos that acts as a backdrop for the reception area.
Once my dad checked us in, we headed to the elevator (another surprise!) that took us to the 2nd floor, where our rooms were. We booked three Superior rooms - one double bed and one single bed - and were spread out pretty evenly, with a room of either side of the floor plus the third just near the elevator.
The rooms were amazing, for a 2-star hotel! Clean sheets, nice firm beds, and sleek furniture, including a 19 inch flat screen tv. There were even extra pillows hidden on the top shelf of the wardrobe. And all had windows.
The bathroom came with a high pressure hot and cold shower, while the toilets had bidets. All this for the price of MYR145 nett per night, including breakfast for three guests.
They even have family rooms that sleeps four, at MYR175nett per night.
It wasn't too bad a place to stay, especially when you're with family.
Most important, is the location obviously. The Hallmark is located within walking distance to Jonker St., as well as the historical A Famosa ruins, the Stadthuys and St Paul's Hill, among others.
