Nice place to spend a couple of nights if you're visiting this historic city as it is within walking distance of all the historic sites. Rooms are clean and tidy and staff are helpful and pleasant. Boss is a straight, firm and fair guy laying down the rules. Overall a decent stay at reasonable cost.

2 nights at discovery went without a hiccup. The place is really clean and the rooms are tidy. The English guy running the place seems like a nazi at first, but is really nice once you get to know him. Very centrally located, everything seemed to be within about 10-15 mins walking distance :) worth the money if you're looking... More

I just wanted to comment on Guest House only because we did not have time to enjoy a night at Discovery Cafe. The most impression was "quiet". The staff told us that we needed to step upstair softly, and quietly because people was sleeping, certainly at late night. What I did not like was that he said it again and... More

I recently took a group of 14 lads an one teacher to Melaka and whilst Discovery Cafe wasn't our first choice, awe had absolutely no regrets over our stay at Discovery. We were immediately given briefing by the colourful Alan who showed us the incredibly clean and well maintained facilities. He laid down the law straight away and we respected... More

My friend Annika and i stayed for two days in july. We loved our stay there ! The place was very nice and clean. Alan was such a nice guy, he helped us and offered his help many times. He welcomed us very well and we had a nice talk all together. The air conditioning was more than appreciated !... More

Stopped at this place for a drink and snack. The rum and coke tasted more like rum with a shot of coke (not complaining, just saying) and they had one of the best fries I had in a while. I think it's called the 'Commando Fries'. Nice place to chill with your mates or just take in the atmosphere.

We really enjoyed our stay. Alan, who runs the guesthouse, can give you all kinds of advice on where to go and where to eat. Rooms are clean but small, shared bathrooms are clean. Great place to stay for small budget!

I stayed at the room above the cafe.The room is very small. I feel like i'm stuck in a pothole. Thats how worst is this place. The toilet.. Is another nightmare. Almost like a prison toilet. The surround area is disgusting and dirty. I just have no words to describe. I cant believe and don't know how this place get... More

Alan, the host, is very helpful and cheerful. The guesthouse is nice, clean and have everything you need. We arrived on Friday night and left on Monday morning and felt rested. We had a very great weekend in Melaka! Thank you
