We loved our stay here as the owners are so friendly and kind! Their place is spotless with everything a traveller would need. We are older travellers who found this place to be quiet and met all our needs. Great neighbourhood. Easy to walk everywhere. Highly recommend!

Everything about my stay at the Old Town Guesthouse was great. They are probably the friendliest people I've encountered during my 6 weeks of travel. Breakfast, coffee, tea, water is all provided and also a lot of advice about where to go in Melaka. Not right in the old city, about a 5 minute walk, which is nice to be... More

I had such a great stay at Old Town Guesthouse. The entire place is beautifully painted, comfortable, well maintained, and clean. The host was very friendly, giving me a tour and explanation of the city when I first arrived. I even got to do some laundry for free. I truly felt like I was home, they took such good care... More

We stayed here 5 nights and would definitely recommend it to other travellers on a budget. The best part was our fantastic host, Choa. He showed us around the guesthouse as soon as we arrived and gave us tips on what to see and where to eat (although he's always around somewhere if you have a question, he is quiet... More

Love the place, felf like home and safe. It was walking distance to jonker street . We were able to explore melacca by just walking. Chua was easily contactable by email and he made our stay a memorable one.

Perfect location: This guesthouse is located few minutes away from Little India or Chinatown and at the foot of Saint Paul hill. There are plenty of small chinese food stall next door, for cheap prices and busy with local atmosphere and for any tastes. A bit further (50m away), Indian cheap buffet, and further a market. Away from the touristic... More

It all started so well. I booked our stay at this guesthouse by email and the owner, Chua, seemed so friendly and welcoming. We were really looking forward to arriving. However things started to go downhill from the moment we arrived. We arrived early in the morning after a night bus. We were tired but were prepared to wait for... More
