Roof Top Guest House Melaka
Ranked #10 of 220 Melaka B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2011

I guess I dont need to say much as the previous reviews have pretty much said it all and I'm glad I took their advices.

We were welcomed with a big smile and a nice cold drink.
The place is clean, bed is comfortable, air cond. internet and water heater was working fine.
Really, at RM22.50 per person per night, it is a great bargain.

This is the first time I stayed in B&B so I was not really used to the idea of sharing bathrooms, TV and kitchen, but it was all good.

The only downside was the parking, though they have parking area in front of the house, they are not reserved for the guests. Hence we had to buy parking coupons, but still there is no guarantee that we will have our parking space when we come back.

The place was run by a great couple who helped us out with all our sight-seeing and food tasting. It was extremely clean and friendly. The home made cakes were an added bonus! We had 'the best room in the house' which was very quiet. clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were also very good.

We just stayed for a night, but would have stayed longer if we'd had more time. Melaka is a great place to go (even during the week) and the Roof Top Guest House was just a wonderful place to stay: you are very close to all the sights and nice places, it is very very clean and we got such a good introduction to Melaka (where to go, what to see, where and what to eat): it was just fantastic! We would definitely stay there again!

Walking around in China Town, Melaka we ended up in The Roof Top Guest House and had a great time. The owners are friendly and bake pie for their guests! Rooms and showers are spotless. A great choice in the centre of Melaka.

Stayed at the Rooftop GH for several nights and am very happy with the place. Mani and Raymond are very friendly hosts and they made sure the place was always clean and in order. The rooms are spotless and there's plenty of shared bathrooms available. There's even a rooftop for chilling out. After a hard day of sightseeing its nice to come home here. The rates are good value too. My only nitpick is that the wifi wasn't fully working during the time I was there.

It was a real joy to stay at this gorgeous guesthouse. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds are huge and very comfortable and even the linen was of 5 star hotel standard. After travelling for a year, this was by far the most comfortable sleep I've had in a guesthouse. The location is also perfect, being close to everything in town but far away from the Mosque and noise to get a great night's sleep. And if this wasn't enough what totally won us over was the genuine hospitality we received from Mani and Ray, the guesthouse owners, as well as Janet, the housekeeper.
When we arrived Mani greeted us with a cold drink and a priceless map with all her personal recommendations for the best places to eat in town. it was the best welcome we've ever received. The cherry on the cake was the actual home-made cakes Mani baked every day!! She and Raymond always had time for a chat and after 2 weeks staying there (yes we couldn't leave!) we left as friends.

Room Tip: Room 6! You can use the open air shower - which is sooo good, without running the risk of flashing t...

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days and 1 night in Melaka. Roof Top GH was excellent.Location in Chinatown area but in the quieter part close to river.Very warm welcome by Mani (and later Raymond) who spent a while going thru a map and explaining what to see, where to eat and other useful tips.The place is secure (need to use a card to get in door) Room was comfy clean and pretty quiet. Roof top area pleasant for relaxation.Can recommend this place!
