The 1511 Cafe is a fantastic place in the heart of Melaka, it is just a couple of rooms in a house built in the traditional Peranakan style. In fact it is next to the Baba Nyonya Heritage Museum and I believe it is run by the same owner. It only has a couple of rooms each named after one local delicacy. We stayed in the Popiah room. The bathrooms are outside of the room on the other side of the open air well. Beautiful and original design with richly decorated architectural elements such as gates, stairs, an open patio with a small pool for collecting rainwater will make your stay interesting and will let you learn more about local culture. They provide you with free internet access, the breakfast is good and included in the price, you choose from a variety of local or international dishes. There is also a bike rental at a very reasonable price so you can go and do some sightseeing, the bikes are lovely with their 1511 plates and a basket to carry your stuff. The hotel is located in Chinatown, few meters from the famous Jonker Walk and also close to Melaka River and the Dutch Square. While in Melaka make sure you go to the local market for traditional food, visit the shopping mall for there is this interesting shop selling all kinds of sweets, snacks and dried fruit in great variety and for a drink at the Geographer's cafe and a dinner at one of the riverside cafes ( I recommend the Riverine).
Very good value for money and great atmosphere.
