The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The towels are new. The shared bathroom/toilet is very clean. The location is perfect, very close to chinatown and the old Melaka. The breakfast is included and you have the choice between different formula, not the usual crapy continental breakfast. I stayed there for 2 nights and it was just perfect

We were planning for a short 2 night visit to Malacca and thought that in a historical city, it would be so much more interesting to stay at a small inn/B&B/guest house. Being a rather fussy person, i did substantial research primarily on Tripadvisor. Picked Cafe 1511 based on reviews, location, it's a heritage Peranakan house and also the owners'... More

The building is beautiful, old and very well-maintained, and worth seeing as a piece of tourism. (The similar vintage buildings next door are a museum.) The owners and their staff treat one as valued family guests in what, after all, is a house with just 4 guest bedrooms, and the friendly atmosphere enhanced the pleasure of the surroundings. Breakfast was... More

We love the well-maintained of the whole Cafe 1511. We are their served Nyonya Laksa and Assam Laksa's die-hard-fans. Having waffle with honey and hot tea for breakfast was superb too.... The room was clean, smells great, and comfy. The bathrooms plus toilets are good enough for me for a warm shower and 'depositing'. The bosses and staffs there are... More

Beautiful building attached to a museum. Very friendly host, who made us feel really welcome. The location is amazing, amongst cafes, shops and galleries. Reasonable breakfast. Would not hesitate to stay again. One note of caution though, the stairs are incredibly steep, not a problem for us, but may be for some people.

The owners of Cafe 1511, Colin and PG were very friendly and welcoming. We were the only guests at that time and it was great! The place is just parallel to Jonker Street and a few block away from all the tourist attractions around Melaka. Great location and great value for your money. Oh, and did i mention they have...

I stayed here only for a night with my partner but after years of travel experience, Cafe 1511 is one of the best places I've stayed so far. The house is a classic Melaka experience, very clean, the rooms are small but adequate, the dvd collection's good for a night of vegetating in the room if you want, there's also... More

Cafe 1511 is a clean and lovely place to stay. The room we had was pleasant, bedsheets & mattress was comfortable (not old/grubby like some budget B&Bs can be!) and the toilet facilities were ok. The toilets were a bit small but looked quite new. The staff were friendly and breakfast was nice. The location was good too - It... More
