I have been to Melaka several times but rarely overnight there. Since my family is available on the 5th to 6th of March 2016, I invited my family for a short getaway to Melaka. After doing some research on the best available place to stay at, I settled with the Jetty Suites Apartments.
Initially, I thought this apartment is an apartment complex on its own. However, it turned out that the Jonker Boutique Hotel bought around 20 units of the apartment units at Mahkota Hotel and renovated them and branded them under the Jetty Suites brand name.
This is my review of the apartment:
Booking was smooth. It can be done via any booking agent or their own website. I booked a 2 bedroom unit via their website and received a confirmation email shortly after. I followed up with a phone call. The credit card will be pre-authorized. They will also send an email attaching the maps to the apartment and their offer for a complimentary mobile phone rental service.
On the day itself, I called them when I reached the Ayer Keroh toll plaza (as instructed in the email). Check-in was smooth. A representative from the apartment met us at the apartment parking lot (parking was ample) and my card was charged for the stay.
The unit was so clean, nice and modern-looking. I had a sea view unit but it was not recommended since the view is blocked by a construction site and an artificial island.
The unit has all the basic amenities: towels, soap, shampoo, wifi, telephone, fridge, water dispenser, induction cooker and an LCD TV with Astro Superpack (tons of channels). There are 2 bathrooms in my unit, one with a bathtub.
The representative of the apartment was also friendly and helping.
Wifi speed was also fast and the location was superb. It shares the same compound as Hotel Mahkota and situated opposite Mahkota Parade. It is within walking distance to all the tourist attractions in Banda Hilir, Melaka.
Check-out was also smooth. The representative came to our unit at 12.00 pm and he took one of the keys. Another key was left on the dining table before we left the unit.
Overall, Jetty Suites Apartments is worth the price and recommended.
Jetty Suites Apartments is located at central Melaka in the compound of Mahkota Hotel.
