“The best decent place I found in the heart of old town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2013

I arrived Melaka at late night. After dinner I turn up at Jalan Jalan guesthouse but the good rooms are sold. Thanks for Aussie owner of Jalan Jalan, he showed us some guesthouse nearby and listed Kawan Kawan as a new one. After looking at 3 other places, I was disappointed at disgusting shower rooms. Then Kawan Kawan is the last hope and I was pleased to see the room. Clean double room, new bedsheet, balcony for hanging clothes, quite clean new shower room. I am surprised why only one traveler give good comment here so others are not sure about this good place. I am very lazy to take photos of guesthouse but this time I did cos I want to show you it. They quote the tariff for aircon double room is 100 RM but I paid only 50 RM. I think 50 - 60 RM is fair price and wish the owner have the good business in 2013.
Bus No 17 Melaka Sentral station - Chirst Church (from there you can walk to guesthouse). The bus takes long time because it doesnt run straight up but around around the town.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012 via mobile

Its a great experience staying at kawan kawan. Very clean and value for money. Super convenient to walk about especially to jonker street and many local food stalls. :)

The service is also excellent. People there are helpful and friendly.

Overall I had a good time.
