If the tacky, worn-down decor doesn't put you off then the paper thin walls just might, as we could literally hear every single movement our fellow guests were making (the fact that they were behaving like stereotypical Chinese tourists - e.g. slamming doors and stomping the floorboards on their way to the bathrooms - only exacerbated the problem).
The guest house's location is in a somewhat remote corner on the edge of the Old Town, though this really isn't an issue given historic Melaka's small size. It is, however, located by a markedly unattractive bend in the river. As such, unlike the superior River View Guest House, River Panoramic has little in the way of a view apart from a ghastly multi-storied concrete structure, which can be admired from a spacious if rather charmless patio located at the back of the guest house.
While Jonker Street may be an extra ten minutes' walk away, it is ridiculously close to a 7-11 convenience store as well as the various excellent (if nondescript) late-night hawker stalls that line Jalan Hang Tuah. Both are accessible via the riverfront walkway, which goes under a road bridge. Catching a bus to Melaka Sentral is also highly doable due to the bus stop's close proximity.
