I was in home sweet home a few months ago with my girlfriend, and I think it is crucial to make a review after the ones I just read in french. We arrived quite late in Melacca, and the owner (Sunil) was really nice and offered us a lift and a stay. Usually we would have refused an offer like... More

The prices that he told us kept varying, but since we missed the last bus and didn't know where to stay, we agreed. On the way back he drove us around town for about... More

Same story. A guy talked us randomly in at the bus station, because his expected guests, which did not show up. That was already suspicious, but I did not follow my instincts.
