Perfect location, riverside. Within short walking distance to Jonker street, Stadthuys, A'Formosa and dining outlets. Clean & basic accommodation with shower, aircon, fan and wifi. Nice balcony upstairs looking over the river. Friendly host.

We booked this place as it is centrally located and we did no want to spend too much on our accommodation in Melaka. The place is clean, just by the River, near to all the eating places in Melaka town. Each room is air-conditioned and there are doors with access codes after certain time at night but there is no...

Perfect location. Stayed upstairs in a small but very clean room. Shared facilities are very clean. Good aircon and fan and wifi and a lovely balcony looking over the river at the back. Smiling host and I paid 70RM. Very happy with River Song Residence.

Located in the old town, the back facing the river, everything we needed was in short distance. The wifi worked well & fast. Our room was spacies and cool, thanks to AC. Showers and... More

We went there for cycling around melaka city. This residence so good enough provide us to park our bicycle inside. Very neat and clean. The air-cond little bit old giving strange noise but anyway you don't get to bother when you feel tired after long walk. The location i can say superb. The balcony view amazing. The guy at the...

I was given a warmest welcome by the receptionist. River song residence was pretty comfort for travellers. The hotel is located at the strategic location. It is a stone’s throw away from the famous Jonker Street. Yet, you can rent a bicycle and cycle to the famous A’Famosa, St. Paul Church and etc. The backyard of the hotel, residence could... More

Really good location in a lovely old building with some original Malacca brick work. When we arrived, the guy sat us down and gave us loads of recommendations which was great. Free coffee and tea making facilities in the little kitchen. Room was comfortable and shower worked well. Sink looked like it may fall off the wall a little bit... More

I booked this hotel for my parents during their visit to Melaka. The hotel is quite easy to spot as it is right located in front of Lorong Hang Jebat. This narrow road has limited parking space, so if you are driving, there are reserved parking lots right in front of the hotel for hotel guest. Inform the hotel staff... More

Knowing the guesthouse situation in Malacca and Malaysia in general, I told my friend that we should just get a private room with twin beds and pay a little bit extra rather than get beds in a dorm. River Song is pretty centrally located albeit parking will be an issue there and any place you stay in Malacca - especially... More
