River One Residence

Reviewed September 22, 2012

This was a great hostel run by really helpful staff. They were able to give us guidance on the best chicken rice ball restaurant in Melaka which is a must and also just general tips about what to see when. The room was nice and clean and the airconditioning was much appreciated! The showers are in the loos but it wasn't a problem as the set-up works well. Really would recommend this hostel to anyone.

Thank you for your kind words and compliments. We will continue to improve and make our place a better place for all. At this moment, minor upgrading works are on going at the ground floor level.We are discarding the old carpets to preserve the original floor titles which is quite a common features in Peranakan houses. Hope to see you again in near future, Cheers!

Thanks for all the help from the friendly staff at River One Residence. Our room was clean and pleasant. Staff are the most helpful. Spoke to the owner, he knows pretty much every diving sites in south east asia!! All things about diving? Just ask him!
Location is great, easy access to food and Chinatown is nearby. Definately value for money.
We enjoyed Malacca in general, but River One made it special. Will be back again soon. Thanks again : )

The owner is very nice and helpful. River One Residence is near the Chinatown, only 5 mins walk. The room is tidy and cozy as well. We can have a great river view from upstairs, so peaceful. :)
