Those interested in staying at renovated pre-war shop-houses while exploring one of Malaysia's oldest cities of Malacca can consider this property of Préférence Hotels by TAUZIA.

Featuring 30 rooms, Liu Men Melaka is a homey boutique hotel that blends 1930s colonial art deco and the vibrant reds of the Chinese Peranakan culture. 

Nestled on Jl. Tokong, within a walking distance to Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, the establishment offers nine different rooms with different stories inside, from Lekir that boasts blackwood herringbone floor and big windows, to the unique attic room named Hang Tuah and the spacious Parameswara Suite on the top floor that can fit a small family having both a living room and bedroom.

"We are thrilled to welcome each guest through the eminence six doors with open arms as a family member would be,” said Liu Men Melaka general manager Dadang Setiawan in a statement. ”There is no stranger in Liu Men Melaka, everyone is part of extended family treated with honor, warmth and thoughtful service."

TAUZIA is a member of the Singapore-based Ascott, which spans across more than 170 cities and 30 countries. (kes)
