February 28, 2019

When come to planning a vacation, you can't miss the accommodation part. Riccarton Capsule hotel has become Backpacker first choice when coming to an accommodation. Back to 2 years ago, I was staying at Riccarton Capsule Kuala Lumpur. The staycation giving me the best memories, it melds futuristic design with comfort, top-notch facilities, and excellent service standards.

This round I will be sharing my staycation at Riccarton Jonkerview Cottage Hotel. This is one of the most endearing heritage hotels in Malacca. The interior is cleverly tailored to feature the classic furniture that pairs well with futuristic capsule room. The boutique hotel is a strategic location as it's just a few steps from the Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum. Around a 3-minute walk from Jonker Street, the boutique hotel is also close to Straits Chinese Jewelry Museum Malacca.

24-hour Front Desk

The staff greeted us with a warm smile. The staff helps us to proceed with the check in and the process is quite fast. After done with the check-in process, the staff presented us with basic toiletries such as hotel slipper, mineral water, and clean towels. The front desk service is 24 hours so you may approach the friendly staff for an assistant.

Storage Locker - Luggage and Shoe

Riccarton Jonkerview Cottage Hotel practice cleanliness and Hygiene environment to ensure customer enjoy their staycation. Before entering the Capsule room, we are required to change our shoe to hotel shoe. The shoe will be kept inside the shoe locker whereby each locker only can be accessed using the hotel card. Your luggage can be stored at the biggest cabinet that will be locked using your hotel room card.

I was astonished by the design the moment I enter the door. Is like entering star wars spaceship. Each capsule is feet at 4 feet wide and 8 feet long with a clean and comfy arrangement. The capsule is made with high-quality fireproof material with an aerospace design. The room is equipped with a set of mattress, pillow, and blanket. The room is fully air-conditioner whereby the temperature is adjustable. Do bring your own earphone or earpiece if you wish to switch on the TV. Free WIFI, make up mirror, panic button, night safe, and smoke detector and other electronic amenities.
