Hoya Jonker Guest House
Ranked #148 of 217 Melaka B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 2, 2012

The host is very hospitable and good in many languages and Chinese dialects. He is very enthusiastic to help all the guest around with their questions to transportation and commuting. He offers their local opinions or points about the local food to get or sightseeing spots to see.
We had a very pleasant time to stay there for 3 nights. The rooms are pretty clean and the environments or facilities are quite good. However, if they could offer more than one bathroom and one restroom, that would make the stay more comfortable.
Hoya Jonker Guest House 就位於雞場街附近,近麻六甲運河,附近的景點非常多,即便搭公共運輸的交通工具,如巴士等也都很方便。
旅店服務人員呂先生非常親切,中英語也很流利,所有中外旅客詢問,有關麻六甲旅遊或近郊的交通等問題,他都能如數家珍,一一排解。
房務雖小但清潔舒適,唯一令人詬病的是浴廁僅僅各一,以一個9個房室的容量而言,是較少了一點,若能擴建的話,相信會更有吸引力!
雞場街的光景如同台灣的夜市生活,但有其獨特的餐飲業,附近吃的小店不少,如娘惹餐或晶露的冰品非常好吃,尤其不要錯過 Jonker 88 (OR 86)!

Upon arrival around 12.30pm at this guesthouse, we rang the doorbell but no one is there, 5 minutes later a lady staff came back and opened the gate for us to go upstair. Unfriendly, no greetings, no smiles, she gave us our room key. The staff couldn't be bothered to show us the room, so we have to find the room ourselves.

The rooms are basic and tiny without window. We booked a triple room, 1 double bed and 1 single bed with aircond. Once we entered, there's a strong smell in the room, I guess it's some chinese medicine oil smell. Then we noticed some hairs on the bedsheets, we asked the staff whether they change the bedsheets for new guest. Well, we were told that they change it every 3 guests staying and they don't have extra bedsheets. The bed has only a thin mattress cover and a thin blanket. Towels are provided, we covered our pillows with the towels as we felt the cleanliness was dubious.

There's a pc to online and wifi is available for guests. However the staff told us that we only can use the pc for 15 minutes. There's only one semi-clean bathroom and one toilet for all guests.

The location is very strategic to walk-around in jonker street. Right in front of the guesthouse is the weekend night market and a event stage where people having karaoke, it gets noisy during weekends. During our stay, there's a group of youngster guests chit chatting loudly till late night. We can hear the noise as the room has only a thin wooden wall. This place is not recommended for light sleepers.

Overall, this was poor value for money, there are many better options in Melaka with the same price. Location was good for those who like to explore jonker street and night life.
