“Nice place in a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

Simple, but nice and clean place in a former Chinese shophouse, just a few steps away from Jonker Street. Our spacy room with a window opening to an atrium had an aircon, a ceiling fan and hot water in the shower.
Pretty quiet at night, but sometimes the Muezzin from the Mosque across the street might use the speakers to wake you up. He did so on the Friday morning of our stay, but not the following morning.
Would definitely book again, we were very satisfied, good value for money.

Just came back from Malacca and 5 of us stayed in Room No 2 upstairs for one night - we had an additional single bed to cater for 5 people and it is only RM44 per person - for such a great location with Jonker Street is just a stone throw away, you can't ask for more!

Their facilities have certainly improved compared to my previous stay there, which was few years ago. Wifi connection is available at the lobby. Free flow of drinking water. So much wall arts to enjoy, and the rooms are spacious and clean. Hot shower is available 24x7. We even get to watch Lee Chong Wei played at the world championship badminton semi-finals at the lobby - they have Astro Sports channels!

Malacca, my favourite town in Malaysia. Always love to simply spend a weekend here with friends n family and simply enjoy the Jonker Street just the way it is. A must visit place if you are visiting Malaysia!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, choose the rooms not facing the main street. But for me, I am a good sle...

This place is right where you want it: bang in the middle of China town, walking distance from all restaurants, shopping and attractions. Clean, large rooms with good size bathroom in an old house. We had a room at the front - try to avoid this as the mosque is positioned right across the street (...), so we heard the 5.45 calling to prayer load and clear.
At the time of our visit, they stopped doing breakfast/laundry and restaurant.Very friendly owner and family.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back - unless you like the early sounds of a mosque..

This isn't the newest or the most modern hotel, but would you expect that for the price you're paying?!

The rooms are fine, electric shower so not the most powerful but adequate. Wifi not a great connection in rooms. The location is fantastic. Right next to jonker and all the bars/restaurants you'd ever need.

Visit the geographer bar while you're there and a cafe called limeau limeau or something similar. Great for western breakfasts!

good location, just a few minutes walk away from the main jonker street. the quad room i stayed in is clean and new bed sheets. nothing fancy, but for the price paid, it is well worth it.

Parked the car at a public car park near Jonker Botique hotel (rm 5 per entry), only 3-5 minutes walk to Da Som Inn.

Room Tip: you can contact mr tan @ +60196629112 . Weekends are usually packed, so best to call early.

Da som inn is a very clean and comfortable budget accommodation In the heart of Malacca. It is simple and basic, but tidy. Room includes only the necessities, air con, shower , free wifi, bar fridge. No breakfast in the mornings.

The staff where friendly and very helpful showing us what to do in malacca

Overall I gave it a 4 because it lacks parking, however there is a public parking lot about a 5 min walk away.
