“A place to be!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Great hospitality! The owner is a very nice person. We stayed for three nights here. A very clean place and excellent location! We were together with a child of 2 years and booked a double room. By checking in the owner gives us a room with a king size bed, so that we can sleep better. My daughter felt on the streets at night and the owner came to the residense immediatedly to assist us. We really appreciate that!! We will definitedly go there again!

Room Tip: Rooms, bathrooms are very clean

Great hotel, wonderful hospitality, perfect location. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would definitely recommend staying here. We live in Malaysia and drove to Melaka. The owner moved his own vehicle and let us park in his spot. Great first impression. It didn't matter to us that all the rooms have shared bathrooms. The location, hospitality, and the deck on the back overlooking the river outweighed the shared bathroom.

We stayed in the River Song Residence for a total of 5 nights. The location in the centre of Melaka couldn't be any better. The Residence is in walking distance of practically all the scenery in Melaka.

Besides the great location, the rooms are excellent too. They are clean, neat and comfortable. I'm a terrible sleeper, very critical when it comes to a mattress, but I slept very well here. At the first floor you find the great terrace on the roof, overlooking the river and the church. Excellent for relaxing in the evening and enjoying the sounds and sights of Melaka.

From the first moment we entered we felt really welcome by the owner(s). Always friendly and ready to help and advice. When we visit Melaka again, we will certainly stay at the River Song Residence!

If you go to Melaka, Malaysia, the nicest place to stay is River Song. It's right on the waterfront and has a nice big balcony overlooking the water and beyond. The staff is very helpfull and it is a good budget place. Rooms nice and clean and it is quiet. Very much recommended.

Room Tip: Just look up a few rooms and then choose one.

The hotel is located at a strategic location near to the jonker street. The hotel environment is clean and peaceful. What i like the most is the balcony upstairs. You can enjoy the river view there. I will definitely choose to stay in this hotel again when i go to Melaka next time.

I've stayed here with my husband for a night. I have chosen the room with attached toilet. The place was clean and very near to Jonker Street as well as some places of interest. I've even checked the shared toilet and it was clean too. Behind the hotel has an open area where you can relax and watch the river scenery. The front and back of the hotel has a walk way to the street. Take a 5 mins walk to the jetty and you can catch a boat ride on the river. Besides, you will find lots of restaurant/bistro/bar nearby. Wifi service was available, but the parking space was limited.
