We stayed for 1 night and it was a pretty good experience. The cheapest option available (paid around 12 euro for a triple room on weekend - the best rate in Melaka) and well worth the price. The rooms are quite basic but you don't really come to Melaka to sit in the room so it shouldn't be an issue.... More

For 22 years I come irregularly to EH and every time I refresh my sweet memories and add new ones. On my earlier, long travels through Asia and Australia guesthouse Eastern Heritage was a great place to recover and most of the times I stayed much longer than I initially intended. The last time I stayed in Malacca was in... More

Strict midnight curfew, not ideal for backpackers! The Swedish lady working there was lovely the other men (local I think) where strange and seemed kind of angry all the time! There was a bat flying around the dorm room I was in, but it is the cheapest place in Melaka so meh! No A.C. in rooms, toilets need some updating... More

Eastern Heritage is an old school guesthouse 10 minutes away from the historic district of Malaka. I have stayed there twice in past month and would return again. It's a very old house, so don't expect loads but if you aren't into fancy hostels you won't be dissapointed. My room (number 6) was spacious and had a big window overlooking... More

As I came off the bus at the bell tower this English lady asked if I wanted a room. I did not have any reservations so I walked with her to see the guesthouse. While walking she was giving me a guided tour along the streets and was very informative. The guesthouse is dark end run down, old, no airco,... More

A beautiful house with big painted rooms with high ceilings. Only fan rooms that share one toilet and one shower. No aircon, no attached bathrooms. The toilet and shower are ugly but everything functions. No toilet paper, so bring your own. Noise could be a problem since the street is busy, the walls are thin and there are nets over... More

Great place, great people! Especially Elisabeth, who is very dynamic and always ready to share her knowledge of the area (places to eat, things to see, museums, etc.). She speaks more that 6 languages and travelled the world for decades! Nice room with a fan and paintings on the walls. Shared bathroom ok. Laundry service: very convenient. Loved it!

The hits: Good location, within walking distance to Jonker St. Breakfast was a valiant attempt, I applaud them for managing to juggle feeding their guests in such a small dining area but it is quite charming actually. The misses: Decor tried to be in keeping with the old Melaka feel but ended up feeling a bit creepy and dark. I... More

Located at a former noble house this is a place full of charm and atmosphere, complete with a small indoor pool, within walking distance of the center but in a street that is quiet enough. Talk to one of the owners, Mr. Yen, for tips on places to go, lessons on Asian history or just plain good conversation. Jaime and... More
