Generally neutral about this guesthouse. Situated on a quiet street one block away from busy Jonker. Simple beds with AC in the room. Would recommend paying m$20 more for attached bathroom. The room is much nicer. Service was average. No parking available nearby. Streets too narrow and busy, you'll seriously if you get a lot

In the first place I take full responsibility for making what turned out to be an error of choosing Kawan Kawan. Secondly ,the location can hardly be better for visiting the heritage sights of Melaka(Malacca). The room I chose was termed as deluxe,which as an experienced traveller I realised in advance was in this case (and at these prices)highly unlikely... More

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
