Cafe 1511 is a nice b&b near Jonker Street. As long as you don't mind the steep stairs the Attic Room is fine for a short stay. The only thing is there is no curtain for the window so the light outside may bother some people. We loved being able to watch DVDs and the food in the cafe downstairs is delicious and reasonable.

What a charming hotel. The house is situated on a historical street, just a corner away from the heritage enclave of Jonker Walk. Walking into the house, which is more than 100 years old, I felt like I'd travelled back in time. It oozes old world charm with its beautiful intricate nyonya baba design, narrow stairways, an airwell that brightens up a fish pond below.
The hotel is neat and tidy. My family of 2 adults and 2 kids stayed in the attic. The narrow stairway to the attic is quite an adventure in itself, but my children loved it. The room was clean and bright, simple room to put up the night. As we were in the attic and away from the road in front of the shop, it was very quiet. One thing though, the walls are not sound proof and you will hear it if you have noisy neighbours.
They have 3 common bathrooms which we shared with other hotel guests. Although the hotel was fully booked due to peak season, we didn't have to wait to use the bathrooms, and they were reasonably clean.
Breakfast was in the cafe downstairs. They were shorthanded and we had to wait a while for our meals to come. I personally would recommend the Nyonya laksa, very tasty.
For the price we paid, it was great value for money.
Do take note that they have another guesthouse nearby, namely 1511 Guesthouse. So, please make sure you know which guesthouse you are booking.

Next to Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum. 1st floor is Cafe, 2nd floor is room and shared-shower space. They have only 5 rooms. I chose Attic room which in 3rd floor ( maybe I should call this place lodge). 5min-walk from Dutch Square. Few steps away from Jonker street. At night time very quiet.
Cafe and rooms are full of Asian taste and arts.
They provide guests some kinds of breakfast including Nyonya cuisine. They can arrange breakfast for vegetarians.

Cafe 1511 is within a traditional house so you get to see some of the original features that make these houses so interesting.
The staff were lovely. Rooms are small but perfect for a weekend away. The food was lovely especially the waffles for breakfast and the top hats and Otak for lunch/dinner.
It's brilliantly located in Melacca - perfectly central for those exploring the town.
Would definitely revisit.

As the title says, its one of the best place to stay a night or two while in Melacca, Its easy to go around and food is always nearby. Jonker walk has nothing much to offer in the morning, so i would advice you to have their complimentary breakfast and head out with the bicycle and go to the nearest town for a great food adventure.

Room Tip: I stayed at the attic. The stairs might be narrow and you have to work your way around it especially...

Clean... Its just like your own house with well arranged living room and a work desk too c/w computer, printer and internet. Food is just downstairs. They will give you a touch key to access the guest house if you come back late. The cafe downstairs closes at 10pm. and best of all, the Baba Nyonya Museum is just next door.

Cafe 1511 is lovely restored guesthouse in the centre of Melaka. The guesthouse is close to Jonker Street, so great for visiting the market, but without the street noise. The owners and staff were really helpful and the room although small was very clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are outside - but there are 3 or 4 to cover the 5 rooms and all are very clean. A great value place to stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in the double room which didn't have a window. I think the twin rooms are at the front...
