Where do I start? :) Location - 10. Near Jonker street, quaint shops, eateries & cafes around, facing the Melaka river & very near a infamous drinking bar, Shantaram! Ambience & Rooms - 9. Slept like a baby! Spacious room with clean furnishings, huge comfy beds. Almost felt like a 5 star hotel. The place has nice artistic touches of... More

I stay for a night in artist room no. 6 with my wife. At first I thought, it would be too expensive for single night, not until I enter the room. I was shocked, the room is so big, and the artistry touch of every detail in the room is great. even some space was left broken such as the... More

First impression about this place: home sweet home. We stayed for 3 nights here. Our room is on the 3rd floor facing the river. We love the interior, view and atmosphere. The room is spacious and clean, the bed was huge. Mrs. Lian, her husband, and her sons had helped us much in giving information of places we wanted to... More

Great location by the vicinity of the world heritage site. Back of hotel is facing the Malacca river. Cosy atmosphere and is managed by a Chinese family. 50 meters away to night market - every Friday and Saturday. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Room rate is reasonable, about usd45 per night. Some great restaurants nearby - Nancy (peranakan food), Baboon... More

Beautiful rooms, very clean and spacious. My family and I had the room at the very front which has a mezzanine floor with 2 single beds, and a huge and seriously comfortable bed downstairs. The location could not be any better, right on the river and close to everything. What really makes this place just that extra bit special are... More

We stayed at Wayfarers over New Year. The hotel is located right on the river in the old part of Melaka, a short walk from many restaurants and cultural attractions of this heritage area. The room looking over the river was very comfortable, clean with excellent views. The staff were friendly and very helpful, particularly when it came for advise... More

Loved staying here very much! The building is a beautifully restored old heritage house, long and deep with air wells. This is the place for a local historical experience that you won't get at a hotel. However, this also means that you can't expect to get soundproof rooms with the wooden floors and windows. The guesthouse is very well situated... More

My husband and me love this lovely guest house due to the quietness, the decor, the wooden furniture/floor. We came across this guest house when we last stay at The Sterling boutique hotel. Stay at room 7, spacious room with attached bathroom. (Next time must book for Room 6) Room is clean and comfortable. We had an excellent night's sleep.... More

If you are looking for a location, this is the best. very close to the main major attraction place in Melacca. At least this is what we felt. I think it would be great as well if Wayfarer add more hospitality and the guest interaction to be one to offer. Because the product, and quality of cleanliness is already on... More

This is a great place to say. Book the artist room and get a private balcony overlooking the river. The room is very large and filled with wooden furniture. The bathroom is ultra modern. The wonderful Hosts gave great advice on all types of excellent restaurants.
