I planned to stay just a night but ended up 3 nights. The sincerity and generousity of the family made the difference in my decision. Of course, the strategic location helped too! I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Melaka and having Mr Lai and family share their time with me was such a rare blessing and unforgettable. Thank you!

Located within minutes from Jonker Walk & the river cruise, it's easy to get to Malacca's main attractions from this place. The room is quite spacious and clean with basic amenities as expected. Personally, I felt that the rates is just slightly expensive as compared to other similar lodgings. As we were here for only a night, we didn't get... More

We stayed here two nights just after Chinese New Year. We are not young and it is not our usual sort of hotel but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is very centrally positioned for sightseeing and restaurants The rooms were large and clean. The aircon and fans worked when needed. More than anything it is the atmosphere of the... More

We stayed at Guli residence just the one night but wished we could have stayed longer, the hosts are such a friendly and beautiful family and make you feel very comfortable being there. We were asked to join in their daughters birthday celebrations which was a very kind gesture. The accommodation (Standard King room) is very spacious, clean and really... More

We stayed for three nights in the standard room. It's a large room, simply furnished, but with a very confortable bed, en suite shower room and excellent airconditioning. The guesthouse is very well located in a quiet street in the historical centre with lots of interesting places to visit on foot. What made our stay exceptional was the hospitality of... More

Great host and location. Children think Uncle Lai is awesome who brought us sight seeing out of town centre. Special thanks for bringing us to St Peter's Church on the last day of our stay. The family is really friendly. We felt at home staying there.

My husband, son and I stayed here in July. We found the accommodation roomy and clean and very close to the historical centre of Malacca. What made this place even better was our host. He took us for a free city tour of Malacca in his car. We also wanted to go to the near by water park and, as... More

We chose this place for its homestay ambience ...and we were certainly not disappointed. Our room had an attic, so our two kids had a great time playing and reading at the attic. Room is big and clean. The hosts are gracious and helpful, often offering useful tips on places to see and to eat, places that the locals frequent.... More

We stayed at the Guli Resdience for 2 nights with our two young sons after staying at a 5 star hotel in KL. We knew that the hotel was not going to be 5 star standard, however we booked it for the experience. We were not let down. The hospitality was second to none, with the very kind owner showing...
