First time in Melaka, stayed @ River One for a friend's wedding ceremony - very close to the hotel where the reception was held. Good location - just walking distance to Jonker Street and many other local food and sights. Host was very helpful to recommend where to go and eat with accurate directions. River One itself is simple & a nice place to stay, clean amnesties with free flow of coffee/tea & cookies. Love especially the upstairs of the place, overlooking the river. You have choice to sit up stairs or just beside the river - good place to just chill with friends, relax with a book...or notebook. It has a calming & de-stressing environment as you hear the boats pass by and the breeze in your face. Will return again to relax & enjoy Melaka. Thank you River One for an awesome experience.

Aha.....I remembered this couple as adorable, very cheerful and rather talkative sometimes. It just spiced up our time in Melaka. Thank you for staying with us.

River One Guest House Melaka - oh what a great place. Just arrived with my little Myvi from Kuala Lumpur, got a parking space in front of the house, got parking tickets from the hosts (one hour RM 0.80, for tomorrow from 8-11). Great hosts, they offered me free dinner! Now sitting on the terrace overlooking the Sungai Melaka (the nice river that roams through the city, where you can do the cruise), assigning reviewers for abstracts for a scientific conference - the free Internet is fast and perfect. Free water and cookies and hot soup on the stove are down there in the kitchen, nice people from all the world around - great!! And my room has a big window, with these old wooden blinds. It is an old house, with high ceilings. I highly recommended this guest house (double room for less than RM 70, January 2013) for your stay in Melaka!!

Located in the middle of Melaka's historic Chinatown, River One Residence is near to major attractions in Melaka City. I am impressed with the friendly and excellent services rendered by the staff. The hostel gives me a homely feel.

Although simple, the rooms are clean and comfortable, with air-conditioning and WIFI access. Heated water is also available for all 6 shared bathrooms/restrooms. The environment is open, bright and airy. The kitchen is open to all guest and guest can interact with each other at the guest lounge on the 2nd floor, overlooking the scenic Melaka River.

Being near to 2 vegetarian outlets, it is also a great place for vegetarians to stay. I would strongly recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a getaway at Melaka,

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the 2nd floor for a quiet rest as there will be less traffic.
