“Very basic, not clean, weak wifi.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We booked 3 nights in this hostel. The welcome was warm. There was free tea, coffee and even laundry could be done.. No iron though.
On yhe downside they let people smoke imside and some bathrooms smell a little. In our bathroom the topsidw of the wall is open so you could enjoy the could and light of the neighbours doing their business. On the window tablet we found two cigarette butts and a used bandage. Has not been cleaned in months. On the room window were several rags.
The rooms was not serviced during our stay, no towels changed and no paper provided. Wifi was very bad, so after all even the low price is too high
Disppointed

It's a budget place and its good value for the money. Clean basic room with ensuite, great location and staff were lovely. The 'help yourself' kitchen was really useful and great for making a morning cup of tea and toast. The guesthouse had a lovely welcoming, friendly feel. Melaka itself is a lovely place to visit. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 20 although this was lovely - the wifi did drop in and out occasionally as its the...

Me and my three teenage girls just woke up one morning and decided to drive up to Melaka for a stroll. We did a little online research for hotels on our way yet couldn't actually agree on a particular lodging place. Since we were not prepared and just want to spend a relaxing night, we thought it is best to just walk in to a few places and get a feel of the place before we book.

Driving around 'shopping' for a night stay in the most happenin Jonker Street at 4PM on a Monday wasn't easy. Heavy traffic jam forced us to head to a less busy drive way near Melaka River. The girls wanted to have a night boat ride. Thus, we parked into a seemingly safe parking space in front of Casablanca Guest House. Parking was only RM3 per entrance and another RM3 for overnight fee. Cheaper than many parking lots where I lived.

Casablanca Guest House was the first lodging place we walked in. We can't help falling in love with the place in first sight. The entrance was so clean, even the air was pleasant. The kitchen suits us and Wifi is free. The owners were busy handling some other walked in patrons yet greeted us in the first 15 seconds. We just love the homely feeling the moment we stepped in. We had a big air-conditioned family room for four with attached bathroom. For just USD37.00 per night with no hidden cost, we can't ask for anything better.

A well spent safe night stay in Melaka!

Great little hotel in Melaka with massive common area but the star really here isn't the hotel itself the rooms are fine and everything is a little aged. The star is the owners family run help with a smile fantastic service always there to help you would stay there again.

Wow, what a welcome! The family who run this guesthouse are so nice and friendly. For the price it is a lovely place. Nice big room with air con and fan if required. Room is clean and big but there is no housekeeping throughout your stay. There a large common room and a shared kitchen for those wishing to cook. The location is very close to Jonker Street and a the other attractions. From what I understand, mid week prices are much cheaper than the weekend price. Wifi is available from your room, security entrance door and a local map given to you upon arrival. There is a Tourist Centre though at the Taming Sari Tower (great views of the city by the way) which can provide you with a more detailed map! Overall I enjoyed my stay here. The shared bathroom didn't bother me as much as I expected!

the owners are very friendly and helpful
the location is walking distance to everything you need to see/doo

midweek the pricing is 50 (shared bathroom) and 60 (private) - the private bathroom room is very good value @60 as the room is big, has a plastic table and chairs and opens onto a shared balcony. The room is basic and old, there are lots of mozzies and in my 4 day stay the room was not cleaned once... but the space is huge and at that low price its very good value.

however at the weekend the 60 private bathroom room would go up-to 110 which pushes them way out of line with competitor hotels. many hotels also raise prices at the w/e as demand rockets with wekkend tourists from around malaysia and singapore, but....not all do.

i found a hotel for 78 per night (at the weekend too) close to the revolving tower (again walking distance to everything) it is very new, modern, own bathroom, 42" plasma, tea/coffee in room, small desk.....basically much better and slightly more than CB week rate and much less that the w/e rate....

so all up, i would stay there midweek if i was on a budget of 60 max...
at the weekend id look elsewhere as there is MUCH better value...

Room Tip: get the private bathroom for +10MR (weekday) not sure at weekend!!

Although this place is pretty basic in terms of facilities in your room, the price is cheap with a common room, an outdoor area and a shared kitchen. The location is convenient however difficult to find at first.
The most outstanding aspect of this place is the service. The owners are absolutely fantastic! Very welcoming and warm towards everyone and definitely go out of their way to help you. It's almost like being at home again where you can relax on the couch and watch tv, have a chat and head to bed. I'd definitely stay here again.
