The stay at Chua's Guesthouse was absolutely satisfying ! The rooms are very neat and with a fan plus air-con ! He provides free laundry and some toast with jam and coffe/tea for brakefast ! In the whole house you can walk barefoot as the floor is clean like your own home !

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

You amended arrival date few times but I still allowed it. You arrived early morning and I told you, the room will be ready around 3pm. I even told you in email about the early arrival will depend on room availability and you understood about it. I offered you other available rooms as a option if you can't wait for... More

This is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed in! Too marks for cleanliness and top marks for the owner, very helpful and polite!! Only downfall was that the air com in our room created a funny smell. Apart from that, nice tea and coffee all day, close to loads of food stalls and restaurants, great location and... More

This guesthouse was a little difficult to find, the instructions were very detailed but somehow we were on a different bus and got a little lost trying to find it. But when we finally arrived we were welcomed by a lovely friendly host who was very helpful and kind, with loads of local knowledge and advice. The guesthouse has lovely... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and my only fault would be there is no zircon, just a shed load of fans. It can get hot at night. But Chua was so helpful, we are gluten intolerant and he wrote down in Malay certain things we need to avoid to show restaurants so that was good. The guesthouse is clean and... More

The owner Chau is so very helpful and knowledgeable on what to see and do in Melaka. The guest house is clean and well set up for independent travellers with kitchen facilities and lots of comfortable sitting areas. We were worried that it might be noisy with our room overlooking the street but it was not a problem and we... More
