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

A fabulous stay with some lovely hosts and quaint rooms. The location is perfect overlooking the river and near all the sights. We only planned on staying 2 nights but ended staying four. Would definitely stay here again.

My brother and I stayed here for two nights back in September, during a whirlwind three-week tour of Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. This small, historic hotel sits right in the heart of Melaka is an ideal base for exploring the town. We had a comfortable en-suite twin room overlooking the river, which was perfect for people-watching but certainly not too... More

A friend had come to the Heeren House before and we had seen his photos on Facebook. After checking with him, we decided to book for a 4D3N stay with the 3 kids for a variety of reasons. Firstly, because of its location in the heart of historical Malacca, within 5-15 min walking distance to most eateries and tourist sights.... More

This perfect boutique hotel is ideally situated in a converted shophouse in the historic centre of Melaka. The architect has deftly blended the traditional with the modern. Each room is different, spacious and well-equipped. The lobby is a pleasant place to rest from the heat of the town. More character than any of the chain hotels might possess. Highly recommended,...
