We really enjoyed our 2 nights at the River View Guest House. The location is excellent just next to the beautiful river and the hosts are most helpful. Highly recommended +_+

I actually planned to stay at another hostel I head is pretty good but when we arrived, the place was empty. We were under the hot sun, tired and desperate for a place to rest. Then we found River View and were gratified to find the owner friendly and the place neat. He just told us to help ourselves to whatever there is in the kitchen and let us choose our own room. He even told us what is good in Melaka and rented bikes for us. The price is reasonable, especially if you're backpacking.
My partner and I stumbled upon this guest house on a rather frantic search for accommodation. It is located within walking distance of the night market, museums, Chinese temple, and other attractions in Melaka. It is a few streets away from the main backpacker drag, giving it a more isolated and romantic feel. The real selling point is the view of the river from the upstairs patio that is open to all guests. It is a great place to relax and meet other travelers. After 3 months of traveling in Asia on a shoestring budget, I have to say that their bed was like sleeping on a cloud! The owners are very friendly, caring people. My partner was ill while we were in Melaka and they went out of their way to make sure he had everything he needed. I think this place has a great quiet, family atmosphere and would highly recommend it.
