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... More

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... More

We decided to drop by for lunch and was surprised that it wasn't crowded even though it was very near to Jonker Walk. A friendly gentleman took our orders of Nyonya Laksa, Popiah & Otak-Otak. The Nyonya Laksa looked good and tasted delicious with the right balance of aromatic curry spices cooked in coconut milk with generous toppings of prawns... More

We used to stay here a year ago & very impressed by the nyonya food especially the laksa. However during our this visit, the laksa tasted very different & I would rate it below average. Seems they have change the chefs or so ( I remember there are 2 elderly chefs a year ago). Will not come again for the... More

Pretty disappointed with the customer service at Cafe 1511. There were 2 staffs in particular that were extremely rude. One was a Chinese young lady prolly in her mid 30s or slightly older, short hair. And the other one, in her late 20s or early 30s long hair with specs. I was basically at the counter area searching for the... More

I visited Melaka in May this year with a friend, and found this place in the last minute. I had booked for my stay via hotel.com, but only to realize that I had booked on the WRONG DATE! I was suppose to stay on Saturday but somehow mistakenly booked on Sunday. I gave them a call and was really grateful... More

Stopped here for a cool drink in the beautiful shady surroundings of House 3 of the Baba Nyonya Museum and were tempted by the cheap but interesting food on the menu. I loved my cucumber and lime drink which went well with a Nyonya laksa. The other nibbles on the menu were great too but I can't remember their names.... More
