In my many years living in Malacca and passing through Heeren Street to get to Tengkera I have always noticed this place but never once stepped in. However, last weekend I did as I was taking a stroll along the Malacca river by foot. I went in Heeren House and as soon as I stepped in I was welcomed by... More

The place was cute at first glance, but the room was expensive, and run down, holes in plaster, broken tiles in bathroom. Water leaks from the upstairs room woke us up at night three times. It wet the clothes and papers I had put in our cupboard. The restaurant could not serve the advertised dish I requested, and when it... More

Came here by accident. Did not stay but was looking for something to eat. since it is in the morning, had American breakfast. The breakfast was rather standard with free flow of juices and tea/coffee. What made the place fascinating is the items on display, where some items are really antique. Also the building and the entire row of buildings... More

We took a family holiday down to Malacca, and my MIL decided to stay in Heeran House due to its lovely rustic atmosphere. We took the biggest room, at the corner with two single beds, one king sized bed and a day bed. The room itself was nice, tastefully and simply furnished with a view of the river. What ruined...

We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owners, Henry & Marcia and immediately felt at home. They were helpful throughout our stay. The building itself is a lovely old Chinese Straits building. Our room had a view of the river, and having an outside window (unlike much other budget accommodation in Malacca) was great as it lifted up... More

The location by Melaka River, and in the old town, is great, and the owners, Henry and Marcia Tan are very friendly, but ultimately this place is let down by lack of maintenance and need of refurbishment. The property is old and it could be wonderful - but it needs some love and attention to make it comfortable. We had... More

This old mansion turned into a bed and breakfast is well located in Malacca and is inexpensive but that is where the amenities stop other than Marcia and Henry Tan, the owners, who are very pleasant and helpful. The bathrooms in particular are very old and worn and look dirty although a lot of the problem is the finish eroding... More

I can only agree with others - the location is amazing and the owners are super nice and helpful. The room we stayed in, and especially the bathroom, needs refurbishment. I don't mind if a place is not brand new but this one really hasn't seen any maintenance for a couple of decades. The mattress was a bit on the... More

The service was really nice and the location could not be any better. The house is located by the river. It is an old house which can be seen, both inside and outside. Outside the house looks classic and somehow wellmaintened, with some chinese writing on the riverside wall. So it looks guite charming and temptating for a traveller, but.... More

This cosy old style hotel is managed by extremely friendly and helpful staff. Located right in the middle of historical Melaka, river facing rooms can be a bit noisy at night during the weekends when the place is flooded by tourists. Apart from that all is perfect, family feel, nice rooms, good breakfast and wi-fi. Would stay here again for... More
