Courtyard @ Hereen, Malacca

We badly needed a short break, not only me but also the kids. So we packed and went to Malacca for a 2 days one night trip. We stayed in a boutique hotel called Courtyard @ Hereen. 

It is situated in the heart of Malacca and a stone's throw away from Jonker Street. We also walked to some places of interest from this boutique hotel. The location of the hotel is superb!

I just love this Straits Chinese Inspired hotel. They have a total of 14 rooms and suites. There is an album in the lobby that contains  pictures of all the 14 rooms. All the rooms are unique and blending old with modern design.

Some of the pictures to share in this post.

Situated along Heeren Street also known as Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, wealthy Peranakan and Chinese merchants used to live in this street.

We requested to feed the fish :)

The hungry fish :)

The courtyard, nothing to shout about, it is rather small.

A room is just next to the courtyard

The exterior design of a room

Our room is on the first floor.

Nicely made beds. It is a deluxe family room with one queen bed and one super single bed. The room is very clean and new that we could put our shoes aside. I like the wooden floor instead of a carpet room.

We checked in during off peak season. We paid RM300 for the one night stay. Breakfast is included.

The hotel gave us this upon check in. A list of popular food in Malacca.

Some places of interest very near the hotel, so there is no need to drive around. This is important as the Malacca town is busy with its traffic and parking isn't easy.

Will blog about what we did in Malacca........

The hotel looks great. The room rate is rather cheap if compare to KL and Penang.

The room looks vy clean n nice. Best of all, it's strategically located n near to plcs of interest.

Health Freak Mommy said...

From the outside, the hotel looks old and I actually feel very spooky staying in an 'antique' hotel.. but the bedroom looks very nice and modern! We will go to Malacca next week for a 2-nite 3-day trip :)
