Myself and partner decided to spend some time in Melaka and found the Roof Top Guesthouse to be one of the most pleasant places we had stayed whilst on our travels. We have been travelling around the world and have been on the road for over 18 months! The guesthouse is located in central Melaka (A UNESCO World Heritage site.),which is full of charm and character. You are just surrounded by so much history with some very old and wonderful arcitecture. And also just a few steps away from the river, which is lovely in the evening.
On our arrival Mani the host gave us a lovely refreshing Lychee drink and gave us a very informed chat about Melaka. We were also given a map and some good recomendations of what to do and see there, including good places to eat.
The guesthouse is spacious and set over three floors and has only been open for a few months. It has two roof top areas which are wonderful for chilling out on. Our room was very spacious with dressing table, chair and mirror and had a very comfortable bed. There is free tea and coffee and Mani makes delicious Banana Bread daily for the guests.The whole place is Wi-Fi friendly. There are good hot showers. A kitchen to use and the comfort of a lounge area with TV if you just wish to relax in the air con.
I would really recommend this place to stay. The price was 45 ringits per night. A real bargain compared to other places of the same standard. We were only intending on staying for one night but ended up staying for four. And the only reason we left was to head back to Kuala Lumpur to see the Grand Prix!!
Thank you,

We only stayed for one night but we had a wonderful time at Roof Top. Mani and Raymond were extremely kind and very helpful- they pointed out all the best things to do in Melaka, especially with the short time we had and also showed us the best places to eat and explained the history of the city.

The hostel was clean throughout and the rooms were comfortable, spacious and well cooled. A very nice and clean common room where we could help ourselves to filtered water, tea, coffee, fruit and cake was also a great addition to the guesthouse.

Wish we had been able to stay here longer and would definitely stay here again if I go back to Melaka.

When i arrived Mani explains me all about Malakka, the place to go where to eat, what to see , without i asked anything and with afresh ice lemon drink as she saw i was sweety and surly thirsty. For my departure she advanced the issue of thf loundry and called for a taxi who arrives 1 hour after. She always makes me feel at home. The guedt house is nice, very big, lots of spave, very proper, cool ambiance with a nice rooftop where you czn have drink and smoke, nice showers, kitchen (only one thing , my room hasnt been cleaned between the 2 dayd but itwas not so dirty). Very good general impression for cheap price. It s the place to stay in Malaka !

Stayed in Melaka for 6 nights, 3 in a hostel until we stumbled upon this little gem ran by Mani & Raymond & stayed for 3 nights longer.
On arrival we were welcomed like family & given a great orientation of the local area, sights & eats, the rooms are very cozy & clean, bathrooms are shared but do not worry!! thet are spotless & modern with yes Western toilets.
There is a roof top terrace with seating for socializing & getting away from your room or the city.
Mani bakes an amazing cake, coffee & tea is there for when you would like a drink & also the fridge & kitchen are for your use - but be nice & clean up after yourself!

On our 3 month trip around S.E Asia this has to be one of the best guest houses we have stayed, simply because Mani & Raymond both work hard to welcome their guests & keep keep a great home Good luck to you both!

Room Tip: Stay here!

Roof Top guest house is great! The proximity to attractions is not too long or too short. The room is spacious and clean with large cozy beds, although some don't have windows. The staff is friendly and always helpful (We asked for lots of help lol).
.....and you can have free cake n fruit! When Mani bake the cake, the smell is sooooo goood! Highly recommended.

I stayed here for one day/night with my partner. Our hosts were so helpful and friendly and provided heaps of advice/maps on where to go/eat. Rooms were lovely and spacious, with clean showers and light cooking facilities. Our wonderful hosts even provided us with refreshing drinks on arrival and had homemade snacks left out for guests to nibble on throughout the day. Our stay in Melaka was made truely memorable by Roof Top Guest house where that personal touch goes a long way.
