“Excellent location and extremely jelpful owners.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

This place is really well located, has really good prices and the owners are extremely helpful with anything you may need. They helped us find our way within the city and the owner even bought some bus tickets we needed when he was going to the bus terminal. Overall it is a very nice homely experience with a nice family like vibe.

Great place to be, to see, to live. Staying here is like staying at home. Owners are always willing to help. They can organise a river cruise, help you with booking hostel in diffrent places in Malaysia, book a ticket to another city. Rooms are ok. Kitchen is also available with all necessary equipment. There is also a common area where You can just chill out, read some books, listen to music and watch some movies.

Good guesthouse, Nice owners, but watch out, the man of the house always want to sell you something. And dont believe all his stories. His wife is different, so of you need something ask her first. Overall i give it a 7,5 out of 10.

After reading some of the older reviews on this place I thought I should say that the owners must have changed, it is now run by a couple originally from India (althought they have lived in many places for the last 10 years or so), they are as friendly as they come, very helpful.
The place is a bit oldish, but they are slowly giving it a new look, they were painting the lounge when we stayed there.
To me the best about this place is the friendlyness of its owners, location and price. It offers free wifi and breakfast. And some rooms have fan and ac for a reasonable price.
And what I least liked about it was probably the kitchen... It could be a little better, but its not like you will be spending a lot of time there anyway.
Overall, a pleasant stay.

Melaka is a place of beauty indeed and the inhabitants of Melaka have the same beautiful mind too. I came to this conclusion after meeting people at Sunny's Inn. A place only becomes living worthy if the atmosphere is friendly. Then the little details are not important. I found exactly the same in Sunny's Inn. Since I was on a low budget, I was searching a place which would be affordable yet good quality. And I found both in Sunny's Inn. It provided me almost all the facilities I could ask for. I got a tidy room at the corner which was I think the quieter one. So, it's recommended. I liked the modern approach of the owners by providing free Wi-Fi. The family running the place is very helpful. I got lot's of good information about interesting things to do and see in Melaka. I would definitely visit them again.

During the Melaka visit of my Malaysia trip, I's searching for a suitable hostel but couldn't manage the top of the charts. Then I checked in into Sunny's Inn. And I checked it's review lately which pushed me into a nightmare! I came to know that the beds contain bedbugs, safety issues and a psycho owner! When I's thinking about the way of running away somehow, I met the new owners-a sweet couple! I felt a bit relief after seeing that at least the owner had changed!
Then I gradually discovered the comfortable bed, well furnished clean room, nice entertaining arrangement with cable T.V., common room for social chatting, Wi-Fi internet connection and so on. The hospitality and sincerity of the owners were most notable. They looked after even our simple needs. They also guided us with the transportation facilities. It's a friendly atmosphere everywhere.

At affordable price, better service indeed. Later I discovered the 'Bad Reviews' were made about 2-3 years ago but since the new ownership, the scenario had changed. It's a comfortable staying there and I'm sure the owners are optimizing that place for betterment and it's being far better by the time now. Recommended for new visitors in Melaka.
