I had a fab stay here. I turned up at 1:00 am with no booking and they sorted me out with a room no problem. Great rates, includes breakfast. The water and cokes etc are all really cheap too. The staff are friendly and happy to help you book busses, taxis etc so that takes all the hassle out for... More

We really enjoyed our one night stay room was clean and staff were helpful. As said before close to everything which is helpful. My only disappointment was there did not seem to be any food available but that said the drinks were cold and we were always welcomed with a smile and hello when we popped in even when we... More

Discovery Cafe is an excellent place to lodge in, meet fellow travelers and explore Melaka on foot. My pal and I got fan dorm beds for MYR18 a night per person and A/C dorm bed for MYR20 a nigh per person. We stayed for 2 days. They also helped us book bus tickets quite quickly but at an extra MYR... More

If you are planning to explore the street of Jonker by foot, this guest house will be a great option. It's about 5 mins walk and you can reach Jonker and Malacca Red House. They have 2 building, although the 2nd one is not visible from the street. My room is at the 2nd building which is just opposite the... More

Stayed here for a night dropping by Melaka (Malacca) on our way to KL from Singapore. A great place to stay at. The rooms are clean, wifi and airconditioning working, and the location is just excellent. It's near all the important places to see, activities to experience and food to eat (Satay and Chicken Rice Balls anyone?) Wendy from front... More

Nothing to much trouble to arrange from buses to taxis. We will be back next year at our usual table, hopefully for your birthday again Bob. If... More

After a thorough search for a decent hostel in Melaka, and after having spent a night in a hostel with bed bugs and hair in the bed, we finally discovered Discovery that had just what we needed: clean sheets, a good bathroom and a friendly environment. The location is very good, near all the important places. A very good price-quality... More

The Discovery guesthouse is split into two different buildings, and our room was just across the road from the café, the entrance to our building located in an alleyway behind a very friendly Indian restaurant (Selvam) that serves up fantastic Rotis and Dosas.
