Weekie 2016 - Quayside Hotel
"See that day as I remember it. A day in June, River Severn rolling to the sea, diamonded with sunlight, gulls gliding over the quays on a mild breeze that lifted the Red Dragon standard over Camelot. A quiet enough day for the end of my world..." ~ Parke Godwin

Another update on my weekie in Melaka.
I stayed at another hotel after checking out of the Shore. Decided to stay closer to the old town area so I can walk and experience all the sights on foot.
I decided on the Quayshore hotel. I was told by the friendly staff that quayside hotel was previously a warehouse, and the owners decided to stick with the theme when they remodeled it into a hotel.
The tables were converted from those huge wheelie things where they wrapped cables and ropes and stuff. God knows what they are called.
Look at the awesome staircase
The hotel consists of 2 floors and is completely open
Love this lamp and the room was pretty cozy.
The bathroom was sufficient

Look at those chandeliers and couches. Its such a quirky and cozy place. I absolutely loved the interior design.
The hotel is located opposite the balai polis and a short 2 minute walk from the places where you find the trishaws. So its centrally located. Parking is on a first come first serve basis so it depends pretty much on luck. There is plenty of parking after the peak hours so you may have to park at the melaka cruise place behind the hotel and customs museum and change it later after traffic has died down.
I have to say though, the mattress and the pillows here was one of the most uncomfortable ones I have ever come across in any hotel I have stayed at so far, and I have stayed at a lot of hotels. So after a long day of walking, it was quite disappointing to lie down on such hard pillows and substandard mattresses.
All in all, if you want to stay at a hotel near to all the historical locations, it doesnt get any better than this (but the pillows and mattress can be so much better please!). So give it a try.
Much love from Airiel and I.
Peace and love to everyone.
