Pretty disappointed with the customer service at Cafe 1511. There were 2 staffs in particular that were extremely rude. One was a Chinese young lady prolly in her mid 30s or slightly older, short hair. And the other one, in her late 20s or early 30s long hair with specs. I was basically at the counter area searching for the... More

I visited Melaka in May this year with a friend, and found this place in the last minute. I had booked for my stay via hotel.com, but only to realize that I had booked on the WRONG DATE! I was suppose to stay on Saturday but somehow mistakenly booked on Sunday. I gave them a call and was really grateful... More

Stopped here for a cool drink in the beautiful shady surroundings of House 3 of the Baba Nyonya Museum and were tempted by the cheap but interesting food on the menu. I loved my cucumber and lime drink which went well with a Nyonya laksa. The other nibbles on the menu were great too but I can't remember their names.... More

Came here for their breakfast and was glad that we have choose this place as they served really nice noya laksa and coffee. The restaurant has a vintage noya decoration with it noya furniture. Will recommend others to try this place out.

สำหรับคนถวิลหาบรรยากาศเก่าๆ คาเฟ่ 1511 น่านะเป็นคำตอบที่ดีเชียวล่ะ คาเฟ่แห่งนี้เป็นโฮสเทลขนาดกระทัดรัด ที่ตั้งอยู่ในโซนเมืองเก่ามะละกา ตัวอาคารถูกดัดแปลงจากโครงสร้างเก่า ให้ดูทันสมัยขึ้น แต่ยังคงกลิ่นอายของตีกสไตล์โคโลเนียลเอาไว้ และด้วยกฏของการห้ามดัดแปลงอาคาร ทำให้พื้นที่ใช้สอยจึงค่อนข้างจำกัด เช่นไม่มีห้องน้ำแยกส่วนตัว มีเพียงห้องน้ำรวมเท่านั้น (ใครเป็นคนประเภทส่วนตัวม๊ากมาก คงไม่เหมาะ) แต่ฉันเลือกโฮสเทลคาเฟ่แห่งนี้ก็เพราะตั้งอยู่ใจกลาง เดินไปไหนมาไหนง่ายและสะดวก ตั้งอยู่ติดกับพิพิธภัณฑ์บาโบโนนยา พิพิธภัณฑ์ไฮไลท์ของมะละกา แถมพนักงานของโรงแรมก็บ้านๆกันเองๆ (ไม่ได้บอกว่าดีหรอกนะ) ทั้งหมดทั้งมวลมันทำให้รู้สึกว่าเป็นส่วนหนึ่งของเมืองนี้ดี ป.ล.เกร็ดเล็กเกร็ดน้อย 1511 คือปี ค.ศ.ที่โปรตุเกสยึดครองมะละกา Are you looking for Old feeling?

We stayed here for three nights. I am not sure we would stay here again. The positives are that it is clean, in a fairly cool building, and is in a good location near Jonker Street, close to restaurants and tourist attractions. Surprisingly, we were the only people staying here two out of the three nights. The negatives are the... More

I did not stay here but I came here for brunch with my boyfriend. The food here is great! Especially their snacks. Yuumz! Will try out their boutique stay the next time we're back here. Definitely a good place to have a short break from all the hot weather!!!

Popped in here after visiting the beautiful Baba & Nyonya house / museum. Fantastic menu & reasonably priced, traditional food, pleasant staff, lovely atmosphere & free wifi. What more you you want? Would definitely recommend and return for an evening meal (pity I missed the breakfast but I'd recommend that if you're hostelling locally. Good drinks and desert menu too... More

Went in only for food, and did not stay at the hotel. Ordered Chap Chai which is a distinctive local nyonya dish. They served a totally different vege dish trying to pass it off as the original one. Even someone not familiar with the dish can tell it's not the same, staff insisted it's only color difference.
