We were having a last minute planned trip to Melaka just recently and we're so glad that we found Oriental Guest House as our place to stay on the first night. The owner, Mr Asri, and his wife are very, very friendly and helpful hosts. We asked him on the whereabouts of local eats and he pointed to many good ones. We came back to the guesthouse at around 12am and Mr Asri hanged out with us for a chat by the riverside. Now, that kind of hospitality is very rare! Also, the location of the guesthouse is strategic. It's a walking distance to jonker street but away enough from the main square (where the performance stage is at) that the noise cant reach us. The only noise you can hear is probably the sound of the river flow right behind the guest house (which is obviously a great plus to our stay). In all, it was a pleasant and very tranquil stay for all of us. Oriental Guesthouse is definitely highly recommended!
