You can stay right in the Old Town Melaka in this great guest house. The prices are very reasonable and the place is spotless with great outdoor patios and common area. Seemed to attract a lot of friendly people when I was here. Staff are also exceptionally friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

This place is good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful but were not knowledgeable of the local area. The guesthouse is tidy and quiet and free cakes are a good bonus. Location is in walking distance of the sites too. The only cons I can think of is that it seems only the dormitory rooms have a window... More

I stayed here with my sister at the end of July. The hotel feels pretty safe; it is about three blocks away from Jonker Street. The room was decent and clean. However, the place felt a bit neglected. I saw Raymond (one of the owners) a couple of times in passing. Other than himself, there was one young man at... More

Good solid guesthouse choice. Really well located, just a short walk from everywhere you'll want to be. Stayed in the dorm. Individual lockers, single beds (no bunks!), lots of space, good air con and fan too. The rooftop terraces are lovely to relax and chill out. The owners seem to spend most of the time at their other property so... More

I spent 2 nights here on a weekend trip to Melaka and I was very happy with my stay. The room was clean and the common areas (especially the rooftop courtyards) were great places to re-charge. We could basically see Jonkers Walk from the Guesthouse and it was only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town and most... More

This nice and very clean guesthouse is very well situated in Chinatown in Melaka. They have dorm rooms and private bedrooms with in suit and shared bathroom. This guesthouse has great common areas, kitchen, laundry, bathrooms and terrace. They offer fruit, coffee, tea and cake every day. The wifi is great and the area quiet. The staff is very polite...

Thanks again Mani and Raymond for yet another great stay at the Roof Top. As it always is a very relaxing extremely comfortable stay in an absolutely spotless room. It's our third time staying there and it definately won't be our last. See you in a few weeks on our way back. Thanks again guys, Chris and Pete

Cosy little hostel, clean rooms, comfy bed, staff helpful. What you would expect for the price. Sadly we missed the cakes but we were welcomed with a lychee flavoured water. Has kitchen facilities for people to use. Well located to the centre literally a few minutes walk from jonker street.

Guy on the reception doesn't speek English and has no idea about the town. Owner only interested in money and than disappears. If you ask them to call bus company for you they say it's not possible. Any atmosphere here? Forget it. The most boring place I have stayed so far. Stay away.
