Budget hotel. No frills but quiet and comfortable and in a good location. Fridge not working and no tea or coffee but had a kettle. A few tea or coffee bags would have been appreciated. Staff were helpful. Enjoyed Melaka and breakfasts at Hari Aum around the corner if you like roti for breakfast,

Room Tip: Need a map to find the place

Im recently back from travelling but have been meaning to review this place for ages. As a sole traveller arriving in melaka bus station on my own trying to figure out how to get into the centre, i stumbled across the owner of this place who happened to be a pure gentleman. He mentioned he had a hotel in the centre and would be happy to give me a tour of the town and his hotel with no obligation to stay. He and his wife showed me all the best places to eat and visit including the amazing indian near the hotel.
After a long journey on my own, I was so appreciative of his genuine friendliness and hospitality. The hotel itself is very central and well maintained and I had a very pleasant stay there. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting melaka looking for a safe, central, affordable and homely spot. Loved my time in melaka, was one of my favourite places in Malaysia.

Room Tip: Ask the owner for the local food recommendations

It's a small and clean lodge, situated in the back streets, near the heritage centre. Recommend it for its location, budget and friendly staff. Near Jonker street with lots of food options nearby.

Had a thoroughly enjoyable experience in Melaka, positively recommend strolling by the river in the evening .... Great photo opportunities ... Overall, it's a different experience than the other places we had visited in Malaysia.

Had an unique experience in the process of finding this hotel! We were wandering in the Melaka central bus stn when we were approached by an relatively old man (Mr. Lee, owner of the lodge) who spoke fluent English. Initially, we were doubtful as he could have been a con man, but his demeanor and openness about the location and also willing to be open about other options and providing us with suggestions as to what we could do during our 1 day in Melaka won us over .... He was also helpful and helped us get tickets to Singapore and by warning us about the lack of seats on Sunday afternoon!

Happy traveling!

This place wasn't much 3 years ago, but at least it was clean. The same friendly lady at the counters, calling everybody "Darling", the same ladyboy assistant, but the rooms are smelly, the AC in urgent need of replacement, and the small fridge better left unopened. After one night we moved to the ABC hotel next door, which is brand new, and offers large, clean, comfortable rooms for the same price;.
