Fodor's Expert Review Casa del Rio Melaka

88 Jalan Kota Laksamana, Malacca, Melaka, 75200, Malaysia

Within walking distance to Jonker Street and next to the Malacca River, Casa del Rio is the top choice for a central Melacca location. You'll get a taste (literally) of the excellent service in store when you're greeted at reception with a cooling towel and refreshing ginger-lime sorbet. Stylish, spacious rooms include balconies with wonderful river views, and the rooftop infinity pool with phenomenal city and river vistas is a delight. The hotel restaurant's food, particularly the Peranakan lunch and the Sunday riverside jazz brunch, comes highly recommended.

PROS

  • extremely central location
  • fast, reliable Wi-Fi (though three device connection limit per room)
  • 24-hour room service

CONS

  • can be expensive compared to other Malacca hotels
  • rooms facing the road rather than the river can be noisy
