Pros: great location close to riverside and Jonker Street, comfortable lobby, free water Cons: not very clean, no windows, lots of bugs on the floors Thank god the location is great because staying inside is not very pleasant.

We arrived at Hotel Bao Shu and were quickly taken to our room, with no window. This is fairly common in Asia so didn't really bother us, but upon flushing the toilet, it began leaking all over the bathroom. we asked for a second room, which upon viewing had hair all over the sheets. The third room we were given... More

Lobby is nice and spacious with some comfortable couches to surf the internet. Staff is friendly but they don't bother you if you don't want to. Area is nice,... More

My parents and I stayed in Bao Shu Hotel for 2 nights and 3 days. We were welcomed by the owner (boss) of the hotel . He was friendly and always willing to help by suggesting places to go and nice eating places. We took a triple room with a window. The room was quite big and clean. The bed... More

The good things about this hotel are the reasonable price - it is perfect for people that look for a budget hotel and do not plan a long stay - and the location - just a 10min walk to the historical center of Malacca. The hotel is situated in a street with old and abandoned houses. You should not expect... More

Very helpful staff and other guests. Rooms a bit noisy, but there was sooo many Indian familys staying at the same time. Mostly kids noise, so it might just have been bad luck for us. Clean, small room.

Very basic but ideal for budget travelling and for short stays only. You get what you pay for. Obviously for the price you pay at this hotel you cannot expect a three star service (musty smelling bed linen and very basic equipment). The receptionists were friendly and helpful and the hotel is only a ten minute walk from the main... More

Hotel is located less than 5 minutes walk from Jonkers street. Room are clean & tidy. The area looks safe and you can roam around in midnight also without worries. People with car can find difficult in finding parking since hotel is located on road side & has only 2 reserved parking space. But you always have choice to park... More
