My Review of the Hatten Hotel in Melaka
We chose Hatten Melaka for two reasons. One was that we could bring my four year old to the Coral Wonderland Aquarium which is just across the road from the hotel. The other reason was that Mahkota Parade was just next door, so my wife could go for her shopping terapy. Check in was a breeze as we checked in on a weekday. Melaka gets really crowded on weekends and holidays, especially hotels around the the historical sites. Parking is located within the Hatton Square which will be a problem on weekends as shoppers will also park there. The hotel is huge and very busy especially at Chatterz their all day dining on level 11 during breakfast.
The room we got was rather large with a lounge with a sofa and a large TV. There is also a flatscreen TV in the bedroom. There is no bathtub only a rain shower stall which is ok cause we hardly use bathtubs nowadays. We had the view of the swimming pool so my four year old couldn’t wait to jump in especially when he saw the water fountain shooting out from the floor next to the kiddie pool. The swimming pool was located on the12th floor together with the Gym and Sauna. There is also a small bar at the poolside called Splash which serves beverages.
There are only two food and beverage outlets at Hatten Melaka, one was their all day dining called Chatterz and the poolbar called Splash. But food shouldn’t be problem as there are numerous food outlets around, either at the Mahkota Parade or Hatten Square.
The only thing that some might find troublesome is that the lift from the carpark only goes to either the lobby or the 11th floor. From there on you have to change lift to go to your floor by putting your keycard into the slot. But this is a good problem in terms of our safety as non inhouse guest cannot access the floors that have rooms.
