We had a really wonderful time at tiny knock knock in our 3 days in Malacca. It was the first time that we had stayed in a shop house and the experience was amazing. The first floor contained many vintage antique pieces from the 70s/80s, including a typewriter and radio. We loved that the place was retro-themed; it even boasted... More

If only Knocknock Home had remained open, I wouldn't need to look for other accommodations in my future trips to Malacca. The place was close to perfect really. The pretty decor, thoughtful details, thorough cleanliness and the great location has definitely set the bar (and makes it difficult to beat) for those looking to stay at a traditional shophouse type...

I believe, Knocknock will give you the right fix of genuine/classic experience of Malacca no hotels could possibly offer. To name a few highlights; nothing beats competent and thoughtful service when it comes to travelling/ The cleanliness and up keep of a 100 year old building which is second to none/ Strategic location/ most tourist attractions within walking distance/ Hospitality...

Tiny Knock-knock home may be tiny on space but giant on charm and comfort. It used to a former antique shop which is converted into a guesthouse. Those who wants reminisce the good ol' days of living in a shophouse (with steep, narrow staircase) will have a chance. Sheets and toilet is clean and well-equipped. Location-wise it is close to...

Knocknock Home is amazing. The room is cool, bright and spacious, and the shower is to die for. We had five adults sharing the space, but it never felt cramped. In a quiet street just a short walk from all the sights (and the shopping & restaurants, of course!), and with the wonderful, welcoming, well-informed Gus as host and occasional... More

We went to Melaka with our young adult family - daughter, son & daughter in-law. We had the best time, able to wander off independently for site seeing and shopping, all within walking distance. It was lovely to meet up for dinner and share out stories or go to sites together. Lots of room at the accommodation, very clean etc.... More
