Great stay at Explorer Hotel. Very convenient location, 5 mins walk to 2 malls (Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan), 24/7 restaurant nearby. 7 mins walk to Mahkota Hospital. I'll come back for the stay there if I visit Malaka again.

Great stay at Explorer Hotel. Very convenient location, 5 mins walk to 2 malls (Mahkota Parade and Dataran Pahlawan), 24/7 restaurant nearby. 7 mins walk to Mahkota Hospital. I'll come back for the stay there if I visit Malaka again.
Please don't be mind, I think the management should give the compliment to your staff. But im sorry I forgot his name. He is a guy, with spectacular, short tidy hair, looks smart. He is well in communicate with the guests. And also his service is very good.
Great hotel for stay at town centre. Easy to go to the attraction area like A Famosa. They also rent a bicycle for those who like the simple travel
This hotel is a hidden gem. It was my second time stay there for medical travel, but it was convenient to find food nearby. There was a restaurant open 24/7 in front of the hotel or you can go to the mall (Mahkota Parade/Dataran Pahlawan) both can reach by walking.
Very comfortable and good location.
Very convenient location, near attractions, around great authentic culinary places and shopping mall.

Strategic Location
You can walk to almost every places (heritage building, mall, river cruise, jonker street etc) in Malacca city. They provided free parking inside the building. Breakfast was simple. Don't expect a spacious room though. Hotel itself is average good and there is not much activity you can do inside the hotel. The value that you've paid is for its location.

Good location !
This hotel is in a really good location, only 10 mins walk to jonker street and there's a few shopping malls nearby. Close to restaurants and bars. Hotel itself is not so great though ,if your a light sleeper I wouldn't recommend this hotel to you as you can hear people talking and kids screaming in your room, and the room is very small and dirty.

The bed is comfortable but the sound insulation is bad due to we were able to hear a alot of noisy from corridor at 2am! None of the staff take this seriously. The toilet is small but consider complete with amenities. Weekend rate is not worth, normal rate is recommended. The parking is limited and located at behind and remember to pass the entrance ticket to reception to FOC parking rate.

Mediocre budget hotel
I stayed here for 2 days as part of an extended family gathering. Location is pretty good. It is about 10-15 minutes away from the 'old town' by foot. It is next to the Mahkota Parade Shopping centre and opposite the Palawan Megamall. Room prices are low but the rooms are very small. The bathroom of my room was equally tiny and there was no shower curtain hence the toilet seat and the floor around it got wet each time we had a shower. The room had no cupboards at all and I had to place my luggage and belongings on the floor. There was no wifi in the room which was unacceptable. Needless to say, there was no safe in the room. Breakfast consisted of a simple buffet of largely Malaysian fare like nasi Lemak, fried noodles and congee porridge with fruit, bread and three types of cereals. There is a poorly lit car park at the back of the hotel.
