From the minute I inquired and made a booking, to our final goodbye, Chua provided exactly what was expected, not to mention with a great sense of curtesy & service. Keeping in mind that this is budget accommodation, one cannot be too critical, despite just a few minor details. The place was very clean, well thought out, with everything one... More

Stayed there mid march 2014 for two nights and absolutely loved the place :) Chua, the owner, was one of the kindest hosts I had in western Malaysia, and his guesthouse just reflects his hospitality. Starting with prompt replies to emails, filled with excellent information, he went over his head to make my stay as comfortable as possible, even letting... More

Old Town Guesthouse is a 10 minute walk to Jonker street and has great restaurants and food stalls surrounding it. Highlight was definitely the friendly atmosphere- there are a bunch of tables and chairs scattered around the 2 main common areas and it is very spacious. The hosts were very helpful and gave us a bunch of advice. The hostel... More

Cannot recommend this place highly enough! Booked 2 nights, but stayed for 4 as my partner and I loved it so much. The owners are so friendly and helpful and instantly make you feel at home. The hostel itself is incredible... it has so much open seating and lounge space, which is so rare to see these days. Rooms are... More

Me and my 2 friends were staying at OldTown Guesthouse. Even though they didn't have 3-bed room, we took a larger one at a reasonable price. The place is quite central but what we loved the most is how clean it was inside. The guesthouse had a beautiful painting on the wall with all the Melakas major attractions - masterpiece!... More

We had a terrific 2 night stay at Old Town Guesthouse in October 2013. 50 Ringget a night got us a double room with A/C and shared bathrooms, with hot showers. A simple but great breakfast was also included in the price. Our room was quite small but cosy, nicely decorated (like the whole guesthouse) and quiet. The owner was... More

The place is very clean (bedroom and bathroon) and well located near the center of the city. The owner was very helpfull during all the stay. When I arrived the owner proposed me to come with him to a local market to discover local products.

Highly recommend this Guest house. It is centrally located and surrounded by many food vendors. A short walk to the river walk and the old town center for more great food and historical venues. Chua welcomes you with a description of the area and the guest house has a great breakfast room, clean showers and plenty of comfortable seats where... More

Easy no fuss stay. Chua was accommodating and was great with giving relevant information on what to do and see around Melaka. The room was simple but it was just what we needed. Affordable, clean and it's a big place. The room was also reasonable sized too. It is exactly as what they wrote in their website. What you see... More
