The Straits Hotel & Suites Melaka

Last weekend my family had a short 3 days 2 nights fun vacation in Melaka. We stayed at The Straits Hotel & Suites Melaka which is located in the heart of historical city of Melaka and UNESCO World Heritage site. There are 352 rooms designed elegantly for maximum comfort. This 4 star hotel is within walking distance to most tourist attraction spots such as The Stadthuys, St. Paul's Church, Jonker Street and A'Famosa. It is just 2 minutes walk to shopping centers.

When I walked into the hotel lobby, I saw a very spacious and comfortable waiting area with complimentary orange juice, cookies and snacks. There was a cafe where you can buy other drinks and snacks too. I felt very relaxed here and my children loved to eat their cookies.

The friendly staffs at the receptionist area were fast with my check in. They collected RM 100 refundable deposit and RM 8 for heritage tax for 2 days. The staff told me to get a parking card at Level 1 by giving the parking management RM 30 refundable deposit. This is because Straits Hotel & Suites building is connected to Novotel Hotel and both share the same parking spaces.

There are four types of rooms - Deluxe Twin, Deluxe King, Premier Suite and Straits Suite. My family stayed at the Straits Suite room and Deluxe King room which were linked through a door. Both these rooms had a balcony and comes with comfortable king size bed, LCD TV,  kitchen cabinet with a sink and complimentary mineral waters, coffee and tea, toilet amenities, shower, free wifi, mini fridge, wardrobe, bathrobes, safety box, hair dryer and slippers.

Here is a short video I recorded with my children in the hotel rooms.
