With Melaka being just less than 2 hours’ drive away from the Klang Valley, it’s one of the most popular places to head to for a break, especially during the weekends.
Recently we took a drive down to Melaka and decided to check out Kings Green Hotel. Located along Jalan Tun Perak, the hotel is actually just 10 minutes away from Mahkota Parade. It’s in a pretty quiet location yet not too far away from the city centre and most of the tourist sites. This boutique hotel is the first Green Building Index (GBI) certified hotel in Melaka.
Checking-in was a breeze. Before long we were whisked away to our Premier Suite. The spacious room has a king bed + a twin bed, large bathroom complete with a bathtub. It comes with all the usual modern room amenities like personal safe, mini bar, flatscreen tv and wifi of course. We loved the little touches of welcome like the plate of delicious local kueh and bars of handmade soap!
Such a sweet welcome: famous local kueh keria and dodol!
Kings Green Hotel has an adequate swimming pool and gym as well as meeting and functions facilities. This caters to their corporate clients or just about anyone who wants to hold some private events here.
There are 3 F&B outlets in this medium-sized hotel (150 rooms). The Hibiscus Cafe is their all-day dining restaurant and this is where daily buffet breakfast is served. In the afternoon, try their “Sembang-sembang” Tea at the restaurant. They serve lovely local snacks like cucur udang, cucur ikan bilis, keropok lekor, goreng pisang and fried sweet potatoes. It’s an irresistible set at only RM8 to RM12, inclusive of 1 hot drink (teh tarik or Nescafe Tarik)

Eat well at breakfast
Jia Restaurant serves both Chinese and Nyonya cuisines from their a la carte menu. It’s opened for lunch and dinner and we found the locals love to dine here as well. On the day that we dined here, the restaurant was pretty full and happening! We sampled some of the chef’s signature home-style dishes which turned out to be quite impressive.
On another day we had a lunch of Nyonya specialities which showcased the chef’s skills in curating dishes of nyonya origins. Just take a look at the spread we had…
After dinner, just adjourn to the top floor where their Green Acres Lounge & Bar is the perfect spot to relax with some drinks and watch the live band performing. On a clear cool night, the al fresco rooftop is just the place to chill and chat.
So, if you are looking for a comfortable and affordable boutique hotel to stay in Melaka, Kings Green Hotel is a good choice. It’s in a convenient location, just about 10-15 minutes’ drive to most of the popular places in Melaka.
