After taking a good look on tripadvisor I read almost all guesthouses/hostels in Melaka have bedbugs! This seemed to be one of the few without, and I know now why! The beds, sheets, and even under the mattresses it's very clean!! Same for the showers and toilets btw. The owner puts a lot of effort in cleaning this guesthouse and... More

Very clean, safe, peaceful, cheap, goodview because it's beside a river. It's the best location to travel around Melaka by walking and near Hard Rock Cafe. ^^ Lastly the owner, Yan, he is very friendly.

The whole guest house is clean, even the shared bathroom. Location is good also since its just walking distance from Jonker walk and other attractions, and just along Melacca River. Yan, the one who attended to us upon check-in, is very accommodating and helpful in giving us tips and directions. Really a good value for money

This is my first time visiting Melaka, so I want to make sure that I'll be sleeping in a good place. I'd read some good review about Oriental Residence in many blogs, so I thought why not trying it. Staying in Oriental Residence is the best experience I had so far with hostel or guess house. The room is clean... More

It is nice & clean guest house. Located just beside the malacca river, so it is easy to visit everywhere. Owners are very helpful & friendly. Price is reasonable. マラッカの中心地のマラッカリバー沿いにあり、場所がいいです。共同キッチンから川沿いにも出れ、そこで寛ぐことも出来ます。オーナーのワンとヤンは、親切ですね。掃除も何度もしているようで常に清潔ということを保っているようです。僕はやや長居をして12泊(1泊は満室だったので他のGHを予約してくれた)しました。ほぼ自宅感覚になってきましたね。とにかく気楽でいいです。場所も中心地なので歩いて何処にでも行けます。オランダ広場からも近く便利。一人でもカップルでもOKですよ。お勧めです。

The guy running it , wan, is really friendly and helpful. But sorry to say the accom is not that great. It may but just because of our late booking, but the rooms at the front door are not worth RM50. In hindsight it was not worth staying in chinatown. I think we could have got better value with a...
