What this hotel lacks in luxury it makes up for in character and charm. At £16 a night it offered fantastic value as well. Situated in a historic property in the old town of Melaka, it is ideally located to explore all the key sights. The property is very beautiful, with a very nice cafe area downstairs, whilst rooms, lounge...

My friends and I went here for lunch during one of the days we stayed in Melaka. This Café is just next to the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum. Very nice and quiet café. Apparently, they offer accommodation place too! Chinese Fried Rice, Otak-Otak, Nyonya Laksa were among the dishes we tried. We're satisfied with the food and drinks. I don't...

Having tried the more touristy food offerings of Jonker, my wife and I stumbled upon this little quiet cafe along the same stretch as the Baba Nonya Museum. We had the Nonya laksa, asam laksa and the kueh pie tee. Food was not bad and reasonably priced. The best thing was that it wasn't crowded like the more popular outlets....

We came here for lunch - didn't realise it was a B&B. We had kueh pie tee, popiah and noodles which were kindly served without seafood (including in the sauce). Prices are very reasonable and the food was great.

Overall I find the food are tasty especially the...

Stayed there for two nights in a twin room (with window) and shared showers. You have to take off your shoes before going upstairs, but the floor is very clean. During the three days I stayed I never had even one speck of dust under my feet. Sheets and bedding were clean and the room had air cond and a...

Great food and all food appeared to be prepared fresh and was very tasty. Had a selection of light bites recommended by server. Spring rolls particularly good. Also top hats a real treat. Excellent value and great service. We will certainly return when we are next in Malacca.

You can't get a more authentic experience than staying in a Baba Nyonya house (next door to the museum and is exactly the same style and layout). The rooms were clean and the staff were brilliant. The steps were quite steep so I wouldn't recommend anyone with difficultly climbing stairs to stay.

That was the first time I stayed in guest house in Melaka so I prefer guest house in Jonker street which is the center of interest location in Melaka. I chose this guest house is because I see good reviews in trip advisor. I stayed there with my other 6 friends, so we booked 3 rooms. We came very late...
