Galileo Guest House is very clean despite the shared kitchen and bathroom. Rooms are superbly clean and I can say they are better than most 3-star hotels out there! Every room comes with a computer with free wi-fi. Not that we used much but it's a handy tool for those who doesn't have smart phones to plan their trip around Malacca.

Galileo is just a stone throw's away from Jonker Walk, a definite plus for those who love to just explore Jonker Walk and its surroundings such as the Christchurch, Dataran Pahlawan and the museums.

I will definitely stay there again if I were to go explore Malacca again!

Thumbs up to their services too. Treats you like part of the family.

Excellent cleanliness. Value for money. Good location too. One improvement that I would like to suggest is a whole-body mirror in the room, or at least place one near the bathroom.

If you are comfortable with a shared bathroom/kitchen arrangement, this is a great place to stay. The house is very clean and secure. In addition to free wireless, our room had a computer for free. Service was helpful by providing a map and calling a taxi for us.

Recommend by friend... 1st i am not sure but due to long weekend and most of the guest house in Melaka fully-booked .. so I have no choice and just gamble to stay there...

1. Strategic Location... 3 minutes walk to Jonker Street...and surrounding by many local food stall and shop.

2. Value for money...the bedroom was superb...with cheaky concept ... very bright room..the most i love is..every room comes with personal computer and WIFI ...FREE..

3. Very clean and cosy

4. Friendly staff..and i feel like i am at HOME...

5. The decoration make me energatic :-)

So far Galileo is a new and clean guest house with a good location to Jonker walk. For this time I have a new experience to explore over Melacca. Examples: eating out 'siham' at back street and visit Pulau Melacca.
