Warehouse hotel @Quayside Hotel
Quayside Hotel is a 3-star boutique hotel in Melaka, Malaysia. It located in a beautiful renovated warehouse along the Melaka (Malacca) River.
Quayside Hotel in Malacca has brought a distinctly different stay option to the accommodation scene in this historical tourist town. The old Customs Warehouse, which is under UNESCO protection, has been renovated keeping the original exterior, while the newly created interior echoes the industrial minimalistic design of the landmark. From the outside, it is a warehouse but inside it is incredibly beautiful and lovely.
The lobby opens up to two floors, with individual room entrances bordering the rectangle. Big leather armchairs centre the space surrounding tables made from wooden pallets. Plants in tall pots green the area, which is painted a commanding dark grey. There is no ceiling between the room and the roof so air con ducts are viewed running like giant caterpillars from above. A spiral staircase winds up one end of the foyer and a straight flight of stairs descends the other. Enormous chandeliers hang from the roof adding a touch of glam to an otherwise uncomplicated space.
This is a Azura Suite of Quayside hotel. The rooms open up either to a street or river view with windows being shaded or opened by plain roller blinds. Simple white bed linens contrast the warm teak coloured floors and small plants in silver pots pepper the room. Framed photos of local scenes dot the walls in a neat and orderly fashion. Natural wood benches and a freestanding metal lamp complement the industrial feel. With plenty of natural light and a clean fuss-free layout, rooms feel spacious and cheery. Beds are of the firm supportive style commonly found in Asia. Cotton sheets and duvet make for a comfortable sleep.
Bathrooms are of clean streamlined design. A simple white sink, toilet, mirror and rain shower make up the space.
Beautifully furnished with the clean white bed and two pillows for each person is simply something which is just sweet. The pillow which is provided are different texture where one is at the soft side and another pillow is at the hard side. Each of the pillow is simply cozy soft and nice to sleep with as well.
This hotel with only 39 rooms, but it is located in Quayside Heritage Centre and is it is located a most strategic area within walking distance to the most popular Melaka tourist spots - Jonker Street, The Red House and more.
