Enjoyed our stay there. Definitely value for money, especially if you are looking for a stay in a rather quaint place.

However, do request for a less noisy room, that is not facing the front street.
It is a busy street and has inconsiderate drivers/trishaw drivers playing loud music.

Love their breakfast - ask for their assam laksa

A very pleasant stay overall. The room was clean, comfortable and airy. Staff were friendly. Common bathrooms were satisfactory. Asam laksa was delicious. Good location. Only drawbacks were poor wifi and squeaky beds.

We only stayed one night during the Malacca Arts Festival, but would have been happy to stay longer. The room was large enough, the bed firm, nice decorations and A/C ! I think there are only 8 rooms, so not much congestion at the 3 very clean toilet/shower/basin cubicles.

Friendly staff, a reasonable breakfast selection, very reasonable price and superb location in the heart of Old Malacca all combine for a good stay. After many trips to Malacca, it is now our top pick of lodging.

Room Tip: Our "Otak" room was windowless, but was also perfectly quiet. Rooms in the front have good...

This is a quaint little place to stay. It actually is, the old servant's quarters of the stately house (now the Baba Nonya museum) next door, so the building is actually well over a hundred years old. There are several art pieces decorating Cafe 1511 - some of them quite remarkable actually.

The wooden floors can be a little creaky, but add a sense of warmth to the place. The rooms are very clean and so are the loos. Stick to the local food when you eat at the cafe, though. Continental and English breakfasts aren't their thing. The location is excellent, with everything just a few minutes away. If you do get lost, it's super easy to find because of the popular landmark next door.

the place is few blocks away from chinatown which you don't need to far away if you seeking some crowd.
food and bars are plenty in the area.
5min walk to Stadthuys.

first floor is admin/staff and cafe area, the food was good!
second floor is the guest rooms are, be ready for narrow steps.
the floor are made from kind of wood. you can hear your neighbors footsteps passing by.
WiFi internet access is hard to reach inside the room.
the public bathrooms are clean.

it is a good place to learn "peranakan" culture.

We booked for one night beccause of the good ratings. The hotel looks nice and has a certain atmosphere. But a hotel needs a staff. This staff was busy getting away from the hotel. After our arrivel at 2.30PM we were asked to pay and if we wanted to eat something we better get fast to the restaurant. And there would be no breakfast next morning. When asked why no explanation.
In the restaurant most of the things we ordered were not available anymore. We ordered the same dish for two persons. But after one dish was brough int, the others get there dishes one by one. when asked for the other plate we were almost brutally said it was coming. After all three finished their dish, about 15 minutes after serving the first dish, Finally the same dish was brought in but without any comment or apology.
When we came back at 6.30PM all was dark and no one was there. When we left at 9.00PM still no one

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.
