Stayed for one night in single room. It’s on 3rd floor and don’t expect elevator. Bathroom is in 2nd floor, there are 2 bathrooms for all room. Liquid soap provided. Booked through email with Asri, and paid 35RM upon check in. Single room comes with one single bed, fan, dressing table, one chair, no hanger. No breakfast, but they do provide hot/cold water, coffee, tea, sugar, some cookies.
To get here from Malaka Sentral: here’s the bus picture (Panorama bus), with specific red & white color, paid 1RM inside the bus, approx 20 minute journey, and there you are right away in the Dutch Square (local language “Bangunan Merah”). Just follow the instruction Asri gave it
To be honest it’s quite far from Dutch Square (20 minutes walking distance), but due to beautiful panoramic along the way and the river, you’ll forget the distance. Overall, great!!!
