Bordering the Melaka River, 1825 Gallery Hotel is housed in a row of three triple-storey shophouses that once served as a flour storehouse.

Retaining elements from the original structure, the building has undergone a refreshing contemporary renovation. The original exposed brick, timber floors and solid wooden door frames mix with updated volcanic brick cladding and open stairways and walkways surrounding a central atrium and water feature. Paintings, sculptures and decorative elements enhance the stylish look, although we’re not sure what the giant Easter Island heads have to do with Melaka’s history.

The addition of a lift offers easy access for the less mobile. Opened in 2015, the 42-roomed hotel looked spic and span when we visited in March 2017. A mix of rooms are on offer from smallish with no window or rooms only with windows facing the interior courtyard to spacious river suites with views, balconies and Jacuzzis. The stylish renovation continues to the interior decor of the comfortable air-con rooms with plush carpets and a mix of Chinese antique furnishings with contemporary distressed wooden pieces constructed from recycled boats.

Wide and comfy beds have luxurious bedding with crisp white covers enhanced with smart black piping. Fun elements like old-style phones sit alongside mod-cons including flatscreen TVs with cable channels, tea-making facilities and a safe, however unusually at this price point there is no minibar. Lighting and switches are all well considered and there’s international power sockets with USB points.

We'd suffer this view, too.

Ensuite bathrooms are sophisticated and luxurious with dark tiles, pale marble benches and hot rain-showers. Pricier rooms add tubs, double sinks and small interior gardens.

A terrific riverside cafe /bar serves a buffet breakfast included with some deals and is an excellent spot for an evening drink while watching the world float by. A walkover bridge next to the hotel gives direct access to Melaka’s historic Chinatown area. A 100 ringgit key deposit is required on check-in. For folks with your own transport, limited parking is available.

And we suppose we could have a drink here.

We think 1825 Gallery Hotel is a decent value midrange deal on weekdays, but weekend rates jump considerably, when it may be worth shopping around for a better deal. Modern-styled Rucksack Caratel only offers garden views, but is worth considering as an alternative.
