Hotel Review: Casa del Rio, Melaka (Malaysia)

Found this unique building when you were visiting Melaka? A lot of people think that this is just an old fashion building in the town. However, do you ever find that this is the very famous 5 star hotel in the historical town, the Casa del Rio.
Casa del Rio is one of the well known hotel under YTL group, where it made me to feel the greatest feeling of home. Casa del Rio located at the center of Melaka city and you will find it’s really convenient to access to the tourist attraction point.
Distance from Casa del Rio to Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum (0.3KM), Stadthuys (0.4KM), Jonker Street (0.5 KM), San Shu Gong souvenir shop (0.5KM), Maritime Museum (0.7KM), Melaka River Cruise (0.7KM), Menara Taming Sari (0.95 KM), The Shore Oceanarium (1.4KM) Coconut shake (5.7KM).
During check in, the front desk staff welcome you with smiling face and they will serve you a hand towel to clean your hand, and followed by a sweet and sour welcome drink.

The dessert which found surprisingly in the room! The dessert made from the famous souvenir in melaka city – the Gula Melaka.

The room view and balcony view from the room.

The balcony is a good place to have snack and chit chat during night time.

The shower room facilities come with bathtub where you could relax your body after a tiring day of city tour. Of course, the shampoo and hair conditioner are all well prepared for the guest.

Hotel also provide swimming pool at the roof top. Next to the swimming pool, you’ll find a bar where you could order some drink to enjoy the city view.
