If a smart and modern city hotel appeals, but generic style does not, Peranakan-themed Estadia Hotel may just be the ticket. Opened in 2015, it was still looking spotless and new in March 2017.

Rooms range from compact deluxe doubles and twins to excellent value spacious two-bedroom family rooms and deluxe suites, with separate living rooms. The comfortable air-con carpeted rooms paint the Baba Nyonya theme with a contemporary brush, and each room we viewed was a different chic interpretation with bright coloured feature walls, patterned wallpaper, lattice work, batik and framed images of Peranakan ceramics.

 Rooms with contemporary Baba Nyonya themes work well.

Ensuite marble bathrooms are compact but functional and provide hot-water rain-showers. As well as an adjoining roomy and comfortable sitting room, family rooms add a small kitchenette. Mod-cons at this three-star are more complete than some four-star rated joints and include large flatscreen TVs (three in the family rooms!), minibar, tea-making facilities and a safe. Rooms offer sea or city views—request a sea view room for views over the Straights of Melaka. Be aware that some of the “two-bedroom” offerings are just two adjoining rooms, and the better value deals are rooms with a separate sitting room.

Buffet breakfast is included in the Peranakan themed Makan Nyonya Restaurant. For fitness freaks the hotel has a gym, but we were disappointed by the lack of swimming pool. The pool at neighbouring Hatten Hotel is only open to their guests, although do check out Hatten’s fabulous Alto sky bar on level 22, open to all.

Comfortable sitting rooms if you need more space.

Estadia Hotel is in the heart of the shopping mall district, so it's the ideal location for a spot of retail therapy, and it's not too far from the historic sights—if the walk is too far they run a scheduled shuttle to Jonker Walk and have bicycles on loan too. Estadia offers a comfortable stay, and is a good deal for families or groups of friends.

On the other side of town in a less convenient, but quieter location Kapitan Kongsi also offers modern Peranakan themed rooms, or if you’d like something more authentic, 5 Heeren is a splurge but pukka true-blue Baba Nyonya style.
