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.

My husband and I planned a spontaneous trip down to Malaysia. We wanted to just relax and take time off our busy routine. We couldn't find anywhere to stay the night in Malacca as everywhere was full thanks to the holidays! We walked into Heeren House and to our disappointment the man told us that they were fully booked. However... More

As plenty of other people here have waxed lyrical about the location (yes, it's by the river), the "quaint old charm" (it's old for sure and in need of repairs) and the "helpful hosts" (well, they weren't so kind to us), I will only report on the main feature of my unfortunate stay here: BEDBUGS. And plenty of them. And... More

Firstly, it should be pointed out that the Google Maps information for Heeren House is wrong, and it instead directs you to The Baboon House which is on the other side of the town center if you try to locate it by Google Maps. The correct location for Heeren House is at GPS coordinates 2.194454,102.247808, and it is the corner... More
