“Great Location!! The Best Guest House!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2013

Last minute decided to Melaka with my friends~ We look for hotel when we reach... We survey few hotels on the same street and finally we got the cheapest rate among there, the triple room only cost RM50/night..it was totally below our budget...The room were come to 1 double & single bed without bathroom.However, the sharing bathroom is just few steps away on the same floor and well clean
5 minutes walk to Jonker Street and Delicious Dim Sum just next to the hotel.....

We (4 adults) stayed here for a night in a family room. There were 2 queen beds and an attached bathroom. Everything was clean and the hot water shower worked fine. The family room is on the ground floor, which was perfect, as my parents are 70+, and it would have been a real problem if the room were on the first floor (as it is a double-storey building and there's no lift). There's a water dispenser (both hot and cold) in the hallway, outside the rooms and even a first-aid kit! Altogether a very satisfactory place to stay in if one is in Melaka. Easy on the pocket too - RM90 for a family room.

Room Tip: If you have older folks travelling with you, ask for a family room, as it is located on the ground f...

Fabulous location just behind Jonker Street. We got a room at the back which was nice & quiet. It's really clean, with comfy beds & a really good shower. Really good value compared to others in the area & they don't charge a premium rate for weekends. The owners are lovely & I felt welcome here. There's a fab dimsum restaurant two doors down from the hotel - I would highly recommend this place for breakfast.

I've stayed here a few times as I have passed through Melaka. The owner is friendly and curteous, he is a gentleman. The the rooms are clean. The location is great, it's just a few paces to Jonker Walk. The price is great, and you can often walk in and get a room without a reservation. I keep returning here, and will stay again next time I pass through town.

Room Tip: If it is during an Islamic festival you may want to choose one of the inner rooms. We stayed once an...

We stayed there 2 nights. This is the second time there. Returned there because of the great location and affordable price. We stayed in a room upstairs with attached heated shower. The room was air-conditioned and had a queen sized bed. It was clean, as expected, and small, maybe a little cramped. The noise level was quite low, but we heard everyone's footsteps and conversation as they passed by. However, at night, it was quiet. I believe the other residents were considerate and kept the noise level to a minimum.
It's located in the heart of a historical site where several old buildings are located. Access to food is plentiful with local and Western cuisines readily available. There's even a Hard Rock down the road! Be prepared to wait if you go there without reservations.
We parked nearby, and spent the next two days walking and snapping photos of hundred year old buildings.
At night, there was a night bazaar which opens every Friday and Saturday. They sell foods, drinks, and trinkets. The pubs are opened then with locals plying their trade in their music. I recommend The Geographer which has a live band or solo act. Across is a quieter bar with a live music. Sit outside if you want to enjoy music from both places!
You need to have lots of water due to the heat and humidity there so buy them from the nearby convenience store. Also recommended are umbrellas as it rains quite frequently. But the showers don't last. Bring clothes that are light; such as cotton, and have a good pair of walking shoes. Alternatively, you can explore more if you rent a bicycle. Grab a map and visit nearby historical sites as well.
All in all, this place served as a quiet, clean and comfortable place for us to rest our tired feet, and gave us much needed sleep from a days exploration. We will definitely visit here again.

Stayed for just one night. My friend and I walked in without a reservation and were able to get rooms. Room was basic and clean. Bath was shared down the hall. I do wish the towels were of better quality though. Nice location and will stay again next time I'm in town!

We stayed in a family room with 2 double beds right behind the reception. The room is clean, there's a hot shower and overall the toilet is clean. There's WiFi provided in the room with rather reasonable speed. The hotel is a stone's throw from the famed Jonker St and within walking distance to the Dutch Square.
