1825 Gallery Hotel

Owing to its strategic location next to the river, this building was formerly a flour storehouse for imported flour from abroad. It was operated by the Chinese, who had fled China for job opportunities in Malacca towards the end of the Qing Dynasty.

Today, it has been turned into one of the best hotels in Malacca with its history intact. It holds great significances that are beyond its physical appearance today – it is more than just being a hybrid architecture influenced by the British and the Chinese – but on a more profound level, it represents the spirits of the Chinese workforce that had contributed significantly to the trade of Malacca – it’s a heritage beyond compare.
