Small room and very old. No towel, when I ask for. Staff bring me just 1 towel and told me that use for 2 person. Near Jonker Walk night market. 2-3 minute walk. 69 Ringgit per night.But I feel expensive. WiFi is available at lobby only.

It is really well located, but since it'S a busy road close to Jonker walk, it's noisy. The dorm is not really a room is takes the whole 3rd floor, with a balcony. Wifi is not working in the dorm, but works well on the front balcony of the second floor. Lockers and showers with hot water in dorm and... More

We booked one night in advance. Upon arrival, we regretted this decision and only stayed only one night at the dorm of Cheng Ho Guest House. There are two main reasons: one of us suffered from bed bugs and the dorm was dirty. Furthermore, there were people sleeping in the dorm who looked like to be living there permanently. For... More

Got to the middle of Malacca with no idea where to go. Walked around to the back of hard rock cafe. We found this little Japanese guest house. We were expecting no room at the inn. But the owner an old guy was very friendly and offered us a room. We paid 50myr upfront. And there were no surprises. Highly... More

Room is small, with air-conditioning. Bed was comfy, feels clean enough. There's a hot and cold water dispenser, and hot shower too! WiFi not working when we were there. Avoid rooms near the road if you are a light sleeper; we were woken by early prayer and noisy trishaws and other traffic during the night.

Pros: The location of the hotel is great. Its about a minutes walk from Jonker Street, Hard Rock, couples minutes from Clock tower, church and other attractions. The price for location & given amenities, it's good. They provide drinking water too (hot & cold). Free wi-fi. The staff is helpful, they gave directions like where-to & how-to. Cons: It's opposite... More

This place is dirt cheap ! Stayed in the dorm room which is an open loft with several beds. Toilets/Showers are plentiful and clean. Lockers are a little dodgy and there are a few suspect long stay guests who decided to aggressively confront a friend on a tiny issue ! Wifi very iffy and slow. Great location mind

We made a reservation at this guesthouse. It was not honoured. Upon arriving we were informed that they had no rooms left. The owner was most unapologetic. Lots of other guesthouses in the area are more accommodating. Give this place a miss!

Stop one night at Melaka for our trip to KL, Cheng Ho guest house is quite ok for 1 night as we check in late (9pm). Welcomed by an old man but as he was so familiar with Agoda's voucher that our check-in quite smoothly. He even did not forget to give me an local map for area around so... More
