          Abstract

          This paper undertakes a study on accessibility adaptation in the design of heritage boutique hotels in Malacca. Three heritage boutique hotels located in Malacca City were selected as the case studies. The objective is to explore the heritage boutique hotels’ methods of adapting accessibility in their hotel design. Research methodology employed is observation, which include site observation and photo documentation. Data from the observation were analyzed and discussed qualitatively. Findings indicate that all three case studies were designed with users’ accessibility in mind in spite of the challenge in carefully preserving the buildings’ heritage value.
