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. Shared bathroom is clean but there are a few sugar ants on the walls. The staff are what really make this place amazing: they are more than helpful and even cook... More

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!

We would like to advise that the 2 single beds in room no 2 have been thrown away and the room has been completely closed for more than a month now; since the last reviews on Tripadvisor. 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

When we first arrive the hostel, the rooms look well maintain and clean. But once I flipped up the blanket, there were strands of hair and dust and dirt under it. Guessed the turnover rate of the hostel rooms were so fast that the host does not have enough time to thoroughly clean the rooms but simply swept the floor... More

We thank guest for staying with us and for this proactive review. We sincerely feel bad that this has happened to another one of our guests. We are a basic back packer accommodation provider and honestly, from time to time bedbugs are brought in by travellers unknowingly. Based on the 5 years experience of operating The River View Guest House,... More

Wonderful river view, perfect location (in a quiet and central area) and very friendly and warm Malayan staff in the reception. The bathrooms/showers were good and a kitchen is available. Simple and clean rooms.

We booked 3 nights here - read lots of reviews on hostelworld and glanced at the good reviews on tripadvisor before booking. We didn't see any bedbug reviews on hostelworld (possibly because when I went to my account to review the hostel there the reservation showed up as cancelled and wouldn't allow a review - I guess Raymond cancelled it)....

We stayed for three nights on a recent visit to Melaka. We loved this quaint place especially the old wooden floor boards upstairs! We had a comfortable spacious room off the upstairs balcony which was a great spot to relax and pass time watching the boats go up and down and the daily life in the river houses across the... More
