Great location on the waterfront and short walk to sights and Jonker Street. It's a lovely old building with lots of atmosphere but could do with some updating. The room was big enough and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom definitely needed some refurb. What really made this place special was the hosts, who called each guest by name and... More

I couldn't ask for a better location for seeing around town, although sometimes it was a bit noisy being on the waterfront. The staff were always friendly, especially the male host and night guard - nice to be in a place small enough that everyone knows you, I always felt safe there as a solo female traveller. I was quite... More

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights at the end of June. The location is excellent, close to Jonker St, right next to the river and historic area, and we enjoyed a simple breakfast. Owners were helpful, even offered to post postcards for us on our departure.

The room was adequately comfortable with all necessary amenities. The owners are wonderful and so very helpful. I would definitely recommend this guesthouse if visiting Malacca. Approaching the front entrance you may be persuaded to carry on walking along the street for more modern/inviting facia - we did. However these ended up being expensive and small compared to the view,... More

We stayed at Heeren House in early May and found it welcoming and relaxing. I was initially concerned after reading a previous review but was able to talk this through with Henry and found the room very clean. The family room is light and spacious with excellent views of the river and the street. The downstairs cafe is tasteful and... More

Having been in Melaka for 4 years undertaking my university education, Melaka is one of those place I am fond of. It has been 3 whole years since my visit to Melaka. On my recent trip there, I have chosen to stay at Heeren House due to its proximity with Jonker street and major attractions (driving around can be tedious... More

I have been twice in the last 9 months, first time with the family ( 4 children aged 5 -15) last July and we all remembered it fondly. I... More

Well, the building is beautiful and right on the river. Excellent position for all the historic sites. The owners were very helpful and friendly, breakfasts were nice. BUT the bedbugs were horrible and a week later and I am still itching! Put a dampener on an otherwise lovely visit to Malacca. I told the owner and she said they clean... More

Absolutely loved this place! Went there for Valentines Day with my boyfriend and really enjoyed my stay. The hosts are very kind and friendly, and the whole atmosphere is very homely and comfortable. It's also walking distance to Jonker Street and the mall, and is right next to the river!! I would highly recommend this place to any couples who... More

went to Malacca for a business meeting and after spending 6 weeks in swanky hotels around Asia, I decided to check myself into a cosy little riverside hotel. the location was amazing, the hosts were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere within the hotel made me feel like I was at home. highly recommended.
