We stayed here a couple nights during a short trip to Melaka and found it utterly charming and full of relics of Peranakan living at its height. The room was climate-controlled and clean and provided bottled water and a large safe for valuables. The rooms are small compared to a standard room, but cozy and just the right size for a short stay. Also, the location of the hotel put it within walking distance of attractions such as Jonker street, the river, and restaurants.
The garden cafe was beautiful and served a great breakfast buffet with both local and Western options, including omelettes made to order. Be sure to ask for a Thai tea so you can watch the barista pour it!
Finding this place can be a bit tricky, so keep your eyes peeled for the sign. Parking is provided in a secure, gated lot behind the hotel.
