According to 33 guests
It was a pleasant stay. But the room could be cleaner and the wifi area should be wider. I need to get close to the room door or inside the toilet just to get a wifi signal. But overall yhe hotel is good enough for the price.

Budget Hotel
The hotel take place at the center of Malacca city. Parking lot was not expected as it is cramp and small to park under the given lot. Small lobby greeted by the f/o staff. The room is quite big for twin sharing. Although its quite old hotel but the furnishing has been revamp such as flat screen LED and in-room WiFi. Small dining are at the cafe at level 1. If have group check in, have to manage wisely as the lobby is very small.

Good Budget Hotel
My wife and I visited Malacca for tourism purposes and stayed for two nights in this hotel. Buses from Singapore with destination in Hatten Hotel area make at least one intermediate halt at other hotels. Our bus ( KKKL Travel) stopped at The Pines, which is less than half a km from Orkid Hotel. We walked the distance conveniently. There are several good hotels in the neighbourhood. Dutch Square (the centre point of tourist attraction) is about 900 metres. Half of this 900 metre walk is through Little India and balance is through UNESCO Heritage district. So, location wise, it has a good score. Check in and check out was efficient and the counter staff (round the clock) were friendly and helpful. We requested for checkout at 2:00 p.m., which they agreed with a smile. As a departure from standard practice, only one room key was provided. Rooms size were big and the room had a large window. This made the room well lighted and improved the ambience. The bedsheets and towels were clean. Room is equipped with TV, safe, refrigerator and electric kettle. Light switches are controlled from bed side console, provided between two beds. Our room being on the 8th floor provided us with a good view. Two water bottles are kept in the room. Supplies in the toilet had two bath towels, one hand towel, one soap cake, one shampoo and ear buds. A pack of paper napkins were available in the room. On request, more soap cakes, shower gel, water bottle were supplied almost immediately. No slippers are provided as a standard facility. But even a pair of these (used ones, though!) were provided on request. WiFi speed was satisfactory. However, I observed "no internet" messages intermittently. The ID and passwords are different in lobby and the rooms. Free breakfast is provided on the second floor. The spread included several types of local dishes as well as bread, butter, marmalade, eggs, sausages, cereals, milk, tea, coffee and two types of cold (not aerated) drinks. Apart from boiled eggs, there was a manned egg station. Satisfactory arrangements. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for travellers with budget. If you find this review helpful, a "thank you" would be appreciated.

For a short budget stay
I have segregated the info that I will share into 7 categories. (a) Check in Check in was OK, no surprises They only gave one card key per room. Reception area was small; only 2 sofas. (b) Toilet: What was provided: 3 cotton buds, a box of tissues, one roll of toilet paper (no spare), bath towels, a bottle of shampoo and a bar of soap. No shower gel (but I later learnt from our travelling companions that they did have shower gel so housekeeping forgot for our room). We did not ask for it since we had brought our own. No hand towel (our travelling companions did not have either). Again, we had brought our own (after similar experiences at other Malaysian hotels) On the fact that there is only one roll of toilet paper: if you waive cleaning of the room, do remember to ask for a spare roll, in case you run out of it in the middle of the night. The shower pressure was good. Be careful - the water turns hot very quickly. (c) Room amenities: A mini fridge - the switch was not on; we did not turn it on so we do not know if it works) A safe - but it was not working A 1.8litre capacity kettle Sachets of coffee Bottles of mineral water The temperature control of the aircon was limited – only low, medium and high. Low was too warm, but medium too cold for us. Lighting too dim Good sized room The most important thing - beds were clean and comfortable (d) Overall impression of what the hotel condition From the types of tiles and fittings used, I could tell roughly when the hotel was built – and it was about the same time as 4 other hotels I have stayed in, 2 of which was elsewhere in Malaysia, the other 2 in other countries. But compared to those 4 hotels, unfortunately Orkid has not been maintained as well. It is a pity really, because the quality of fittings from that age was good and could still look good and last long. Instead, signs of disrepair was evident. Eg (i) we had a wardrobe whose sliding door was shaky. We were a little worried it would fall out and hit whoever was going to sleep in the bed next to it (ii) the sink did not have a sink stopper – it was therefore hard to hand wash any clothes. We could see that something white was stuck in the drainer. I suspect it was silicon as a fresh layer of silicon had been applied around the vanity top; maybe some dropped into the drainer. Whatever it was, it caused the water to drain very slowly. (e) wifi There is free wifi in the reception area, and also in the room (different passwords apply). But the signal was very weak in most rooms – our travelling companions complained they had to stand near their room doors to get any signal at all. We were the only lucky ones where the signal was good, even when 3 devices (including a laptop connecting to a VPN) were connected at the same time! (f) Buffet Breakfast There was sufficient variety eg potato wedges, porridge, nasi lemak, noodles (which you cook yourself using into the pot of hot water provided), cereals (labelled as honey stars and coco crunch but they looked and tasted different from the Nestle brand ones), 2 types of fruit, water, coffee, tea, milk (for the cereal), 2 types of cordial (whose colours were too bright for me to dare try as they looked artificial), a manned egg station. The hard boiled egg for the nasi lemak looked too brown (hence stale??) - I avoided it (g) location Central, close to many eateries Summary OK for a short stay; one of the more affordable hotels in the area.

Average Hotel, OK for short stay
The room are very basic and nothing to shout about. The fittings and furnishing look quite old and it's high time for refurbishing. The reception is quite small and cramped with not many seats, in case you arrive early before check in time, you won't have any place to wait. However, the location is strategic, and food is just short walking distance away.
