We stayed two nights in the Old Town Guesthouse. The hospitality was great, very helpful owner! The room is basic and clean. Good value for money! He takes really good care of his place, you can see it in the details.The drawings on the wall are beautiful! We enjoyed our stay in melaka! Thanks a lot!

this guest house was really nice and relaxing. the other people who were staying here were really great to talk to, the owner was really good and was very helpful. its a place for the non-party goers. free washing, breakfast(toast and coffee). nice place to stay.. but probably only for 3 days or so. not much to do in melaka....

We recently stayed at Old Town Guesthouse on our trip to Melaka and it was the best place lodging we had throughout our three weeks in Malaysia. Chao is an excellent host and made us feel right at home. From our initial check-in, he took the time to explain to us all there was to see and do in Melaka... More

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
