I have stayed in this inn twice. It is located in Jonker Street, getting around Jonker Street is easy. We were given 2 keys (one for the room, one for the main entrance) because we need to open/lock the door ourselves at night. I think the safety there is ok as there's a cafe that open until midnight on the... More

It was my first time staying at Santo Inn. We were welcome by a friendly staff, Andy. I like the concept of the guest house with the olden-kind of house (wooden floor), wooden chair and deco. The bed was okay except pillows were a little soft. The room was in good condition(looks new too) and clean. Don't have to worry... More

We stayed at the santo inn for 4 nights in november 2013. The room was very small but clean. The showers were not so clean, it was a lot of ants in the bathrooms. The guy who workes there is very kind and nice, but he is the only one who's working at the hostel so the security is very... More

Very simple, but location is perfect - heart of Malacca, but quiet enough. Bathroom needs a little refreshments and more cleaning, I would like second bed sheet, and walls are very thin, but every other things are perfect - friendly staff, comfortable bed and l like their minimalistic decor of white and black and splash of color. Hot water is... More

It was a good location to stay nearby the Jonker Street. The owner was nice and friendly. The room is comfortable and it's really feel like i'm home. The surrounding environment is clean. It's worth to spend money and time to stay there. I was enjoyed my trip!

Just few steps away from Jocker street... Is at another end of jonker street, quite. Small rooms, but enough for you to comfortably put up a night and take a good rest.. Owner is friendly and the place is clean.. However, only 2 bathroom/ toilet to share among all, so plan your day.

The location is great, 5 to 10 minutes walking distance to all major tourist attractions in the town. The owner himself is really lovely, and is willing to help you out whenever you give him a call. Facilities wise there are 2 bathrooms with shampoo and body wash provided. Wifi as well as washing machine with dryers are provided too.

On the plus side its in a good location, in the heart of Chinatown, the owner is helpful and friendly, and rooms are perfectly adequate. BUT facilities are meagre, with only one toilet for all guests and staff, and the downstairs rooms are very noisy as walls do not meet the ceiling and you can hear guests upstairs and using... More
