At the outset, let me state that we stayed in the sister property of Cafe 1511, Cafe D'Laksamana. As there is not entry yet for the new property, I thought I could put my review here as it is under the same management.
The house is a short walk away from all the action near the Jonker Street area. But it's only about 5 minutes, 10 minutes maximum. There were 7 of us, so we booked all four rooms in the house. Sadly, we could only stay for 1 night but as a base for exploring Melaka, the property is great.
The house has 4 rooms, 2 rooms with double beds, 1 with twin beds and 1 with a single bed. There are mattresses available so potentially, you could fit around 10 people in there. The toilets were nice and clean. There is free wifi and a computer if you don't have a laptop with you.
I want to make special mention of Colin, the owner. He went out of his way to make sure our stay was good. The free breakfast which is to be served at Cafe 1511 was only going to start around 9 am. Our bus was leaving at 8. So he picked us up at around 7 am from the house and drove us himself to Cafe 1511 where he had breakfast prepared extra early for us. Then he brought us to the bus station himself! Talk about service. It was amazing!
Kudos to Colin and his staff! According to him, they are going to open another property this year. I personally recommend staying in his properties. Go!
