It's location is the best of everything. Good reception and owner. They have Toast, coffee all day free, rooms are ok for the money you pay. No wardrobes or anything, very minimal furniture. If you plan to just sleep, it is fine. I recommend anyone traveling solo or small group. Shared bathroom in public area for single room, it was... More

For the price I paid, I expect a 3-star hospitality and facilities. There was no shower cap. No electric kettle in the room. The furniture was so bare minimum there was even no bedside table. Just a bed. They cant even provide a decent wardrobe. There was only a tall wooden box with hangers. No door. Location is good but... More

Very helpful staff and great location for exploring the historic city. You have the old mosque opposite and the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia just across the street. Jonkers Walk is 2 minutes walk away. I had the room upstairs with a shared bathroom, but the room was nice with A/C. Washing machine would go on a bit late at... More

We had only planned on staying one or two nights in Malacca. I just extended our stay to four and we may opt to stay even longer. The room is very spacious, comfortable, and clean. There is the Kamung Kling Mosque across the street, so bring earplugs! The eggs and hashbrowns are cold, but there is toast and cereal available... More
