The guesthouse is one of the best I have ever been. The owner is extremely friendly and gave us many suggestions about Melaka and Malaysia. The rooms and the common areas are really clean, since there is a really kind woman that cleans everything all the day long. Felt like staying at home!

What sets this above from the rest is the owner. Part of the check in process is getting our preferences and likings. From this he would... More

Had a great experience. The owner gave us a power strip so that we could plug in more devices, and repaired the shower faucet holder as soon as we informed him that it was broken. When we told him that we liked to eat, he gave us a great list of tons of good restaurants in the area and showed... More

Old Town is one of those places you just feel at home. We stay at many guesthouses and rarely do you really get that feeling. The owner was so friendly and helpful from the minute we checked in, giving us plenty of suggestions of where to go and what to eat. The room was small but very comfortable with ice... More

Short walk to Jonker St, restaurants etc. Clean and quiet. Some more interesting looking stays in touristy areas but the crowds for Jonker St markets would keep you awake. This place feels homey and also has a great morning market very close for fresh fruit etc. No street noise at all at this place. Stayed 4 nights but ran out... More

Travelling from Singapore, Old Town Guesthouse was a great place for us to relax and acclimatise to Malaysia. The rooms, the common areas and bathrooms were always clean, and we felt at home here quickly. Our double room had an A/C, which was great given the heat outside. Breakfast was okay, there was coffee, tea, toast and jam. The owner... More
