Unfortunately we we not able to view this room before we check in,the day before(management said they were full). They insisted we pay them before we went to the room. Disgusting!! The room smelt, sheets were old and room had very basic facilities. Initially we thought, 'no problem, only here for a couple of night' but after lunch we decided... More

Do not be alarmed when you go to your room to discover there are no windows and the bathroom is a wetroom. The friendliness and location make up for this. Very neat, location exceeds every expectation and literally two minute walk from Jonker Street. Melaka is by far one of my favorite places ever visited - if I ever went... More

One night stayed @ River Song Residence from 29 - 30 May 2015 and we are happy with it. Its just 5 minutes walking distance to jonker street and you can take a walk by the river which located right behind of the hotel during the night. Hotel staffs are so friendly and helpful especially Aunty Aida & Jarden (sorry... More

Not bad and is near by the river . Reasonable price and good location. Very basic rooms setup . Would definitely recommend for budget traveller . Very close to jonker street and Hard Rock Cafe . Just put your suitcase in the room and take a walk by the river .

Booked this place because I like the patio that looks out to Melaka River. Personally, it does not matter to me if the headboard, blanket and towels look old as all I need is a convenient place to stay in. The star point of this residence is it is so near to the night market, Jonker Walk and the popular... More

Only stayed one night but this was a well situated little place backing onto the river with view from roof terrace of cathedral. Had aircon but room was internal (no window) so bit claustrophobic. Staff were helpful and friendly in our admittedly limited experience. Don't think it would be suitable for long stays but if you're going to be out... More

We stayed 4 nights. First night we stayed in their last room with shared bath available, which was cramped and next to the noisy street. We moved the next day to a much better interior room which was quiet and much larger. I had hoped to spend lots of time on the lovely patio overlooking the river but was disappointed... More

It’s OK for a typical small hotel. Nothing fancy or outstanding. The rooms are quite small and lacking space for luggage and hanging stuffs. But it’s along the river and the balcony overlooking the river as well as the riverfront patio are nice. The hallway carpet should be replaced as it’s gotten black (the original was red) in most areas.... More
