We stayed here for two days and it had a beautiful hallway but the room inside was really basic. That was ok, but there was fungus on the wall and the room smelled bad because of the fungus. The location is really good near the river and it has a nice terras. They also make jummy cakes.

Stayed 3 nights with my partner. The free cake is a lovely touch. Enjoyed the proximity of guest house to old melaka. Very simple, no frills place, but clean. They aim to ensure that communal respect and quiet is respected. And good value for money. Recommended. Note - try to stay further away from the road, as it is loud... More

Had a great time, the staff were very helpful and the warm , homemade cake was an absolute treat- so tasty. They also helped us to organise the 'Eco bike tour'. Our room was a little pokey but for RM58 a night it was great value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the sunrise over the river from the pretty balcony.

Stayed here in a single room near the road (wouldn't recommend if you don't have ear plugs as street is noisy). Rooms are clean with a/c and well furnished.

I stayed in the room number 2 with 3 night stay, the second night was fully bitten by 100 bedbugs, but thought they were Mosquitos! Stay away if you don't like to be bedbugs food. The pictures they out up are real nice but they come get you when you sleep!

In fact, we had closed down the whole house between 18-20th March14 for maintenance, demisting and fumigation as extra precaution. Room 2 has... More

The Nicest guesthouse we stayed in after 8 weeks travelling in Asia. The old structures of the house are beautifully renovated (unfortunatly not in the rooms) and the river view balcony is a perfect spot to relax or enjoy a piece of the delicious cakes the owners wife bakes every day. Its for free. as well as coffee, tea and... More

Have slept there in summer 2011, it was really great. It is situated in an old warehouse in the old citycenter of Melakka. It has inside beautiful wooden floors, also the airco is very good. Atmosphere makes you feel relaxed and calm. A nice balcony with colourful flowers and a nice view over the river. The owner is very kind... More
