We chose to stay at this hotel again. Our last stay was in 2009. There have been improvements made. Our room was comfortable and clean. Frain and TT Tee at the front desk were just awesome. We communicated a lot with them by email and nothing was too much trouble. On arrival they did whatever they could to ensure we... More

We chose to stay there for two nights. We had a very late check-in (past-midnight) since most buses from Johor Baru were fully-booked. Receptionist welcomed us as if nothing was wrong. The rooms was very clean, spacious, with comfy beds too. We got a shared toilet, but didn't find any troubles despite staying during a long weekend. Location is great.... More

Revisited. I booked the same room, Deluxe Double Room, for 3 nights at the cost of RM120 per night for the first night and RM196.12 per night for the subsequent nights. The main reason this hotel was chosen is still its strategic location as it is just walking distance (about 2 minutes) to Jonker Street. It is also worth to... More

We stayed there 2 nights (4 adults). The employees are very friendly, flexible and helpful. Rooms are clean and cosy. The hotel is very well located. If you go back to Malacca, we will definitely stay at Da Som Inn again.

Pros: - Owners are very friendly Cons: - I thought this place was over priced for what i believe are average rooms. I think you are better off going higher end or lower budget. - Wifi is horrible. Very spotty There are so many guest houses and boutique hotels within the 3 blocks that is Malacca old town. Not sure... More

The 4 of us had a pleasant stay there. We just walked in, and luckily the last family room is still available with the most affordable price. It was worth it to stay there, the location is very strategic and the uncle is very friendly. They even provided breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Melaka!

Stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! The owner welcomes us warmly at 2am (!) even though we didn't have a reservation. We stayed in a twin room downstairs (near the showers and kitchen) and thought it might be a bit noisy, but it wasn't at all! The beds were super luxurious and had proper duvets and pillows... More

My wife and I stayed here at Da Som Inn for 3 nights. For us, this super clean characterful budget hotel gives great value for money. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in has a en-suite bathroom, well air-conditioned with a ceiling fan, and has a very comfortable bed. We used the free wifi extensively. The... More

Da Som Inn was a chance-find. Booked it very last-minute and most of the better-known places were already full. Took a calculated risk that paid off. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Travelled with my parents, my wife and 2 kids. We had a deluxe double room with queen bed and another deluxe double with 2 single beds. Rooms were clean,... More
