We stayed here towards the beginning of January 2014 and I have to say that not only was it a great place to say in Melaka; but you wish you could take it with you.
Where to start? The people I guess...we were so well looked after by Tutu and the gang that it really made all a difference. We got the where to go and where to avoid all marked up on a map I got from the tourist centre (3 mins walk away). This was the bible to Melaka, and not only did we learn a lot, but we also ate like locals.
That does bring me on to food I guess. As for the food at Cafe 1511, you'd be hard pushed to find much better. The laksa for breakfast...there is no better way to start your day. Not even when I'm typing this in the UK. It really was the best we found on our whole trip. Then there's the Popiah. Again another winner. We loved these and ate plenty. I have to say that they were the best we found!!
I guess I should say something about the rooms and location. The rooms were spotless and well kept, and they have a water cooler to fill up your bottles which is a great help in the heat. The bathrooms were always clean and in great condition. So what's not to love!
It is worth noting that the building is built in typical style with two massive open areas allowing air to flow throughout the hotel so that it does not ever get stuffy.
Finally as for location it is situated on Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock. This is one road over from the major road that runs through China Town. It really is the best place as it's centra, but out of the way enough that you feel like you have escaped the madness of the old town.
I cannot recommend this place higher.
