Really enjoyed my stay here. A very nice place. Reasonable price and very clean. Great shower with good water pressure. Located near Junker street which is the centre of Melaka. Would recommend this place to others.

Hotel located near Junker street, central of Melaka. The room is very clean. Staff is nice. We can walk only 3 mins to riverside. The hotel is opposite the Chinese temple. Dim sum place next door was very nice, too.

We booked into this hotel due to a recommendation from a friend. We stayed for two days three nights in their upstair twin room with attached bathroom. Due to its price (rm80 p/night), at first I thought it would be like some rundown shop lot converted into a cheap hotel. But instead I was suprised by the state of the... More

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Kawan Kawan Guest House! Though the rooms are small and basic, containing only a mattress on the raised floor with a pillow and towel (as a blanket) with a small shelf off to the side, they are great value. Shared bathrooms are cleaned regularly throughout the day and are therefore kept... More

The guest house locates at the middle of Melaka, the World Heritage City. Very close to the famous Jonker Street. Rooms are cozy and comfortable. However, no breakfast shop is open within the proximity in the morning. Good place for backpacker.

There was no proper bed in the room. It consisted of a mattress, two dirty looking pillows and a big towel acting as a blanket. There were two face towels as well which of course we didn't use at all. With the room filled of mosquitoes and heavily scented mothballs (I think, as they smelled like mothballs to me) we... More

Very clean, which was a nice respite from the filth and not-so-pleasant aromas emanating from the river and streets of this historic town. Kawan Kawan is in a great location just a stroll to Jonker Street and many of the tourist places, and felt very safe. The rooms are very basic and I did have to knock on the door... More

Central located, nice walking distance to all the interesting streets in the old town of Melaka. The guest house is small but very clean and tidy, wooden floor. They only have few rooms, so try to book in advance. Rooms could be nicer with lamp lights instead of neon ones. Treat yourself a nice dumplings meal at the New Kong... More
