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

The guys running the hostel are really nice and helpful but the place is in definite need of some tlc, and maybe a woman's touch. I stayed in the dorm on my own when there was a thunder storm and it was a bit eery. The place is set in a fantastic building and surrounded by cheap and good restaurants.... More

Wonderfully clean, rustic hotel with a halcyon, timeless charm. The bedrooms are an excellent size, the mattresses firm, and the owner, Yen, is genuinely kind-hearted man. We were, both of us, sorry to leave. Megan and Greg

We arrived late in the evening at Melaka Central bus station and a friendly man offered us a room in his guest house. After checking the rather not favourable Lonely Planet review of the place, we decided to check it nonetheless (after many horrible well reviewed places all around south east asia). The owner organised us a taxi for a... More

Considering the very low price, this is a great place to stay for travellers on a tight budget. I ended up staying their for a couple of weeks. The upsides are: strong wifi (in the rooms close to the stairs), very friendly staff, very low price, charming building and close to all the attractions. The only downside is that it... More
