“Nice rooms, friendly owners”
Reviewed September 30, 2011

We stayed here for 1 night. Owners were very friendly. Rooms are clean, spacious, have ac and everything is nicely decorated. Because it is a monument they couldn't make bathrooms in the rooms, but the communual bathrooms are nice andere clean.
There is some noise from the nearby restaurant, but we didn't found it to be annoying.
We would stay here again if we were in Melaka.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back would be more noisy because of he noise from the restaurant

Big rooms, clean bathrooms and a nice rooftop terrace. We stayed here one night and we really enjoyed it.

Location is perfect. Little noise from the café next door, also the air-con makes some noise.

We didn't spoke much with the owner but he was not rude at all.

Lonely Planet's top pick for Melaka is right next to a disco. Every night until midnight, you will to suffer through VERY loud syrupy somgs all the way until midnight before you can have any sense of peace and quiet. After a long day of travelling or sightseeing one hopes to rest in a guesthouse, not have the top 100 worse songs of international songs sang by overconfident malaysians... The guestroom warns of some noise, but of course minimises it. Great location and free wifi sure, but at a price way too steep for me. MY HEART WILLL GOOO ONNNN...

We spent 3 nights in Melaka and truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely place.

Our room was spacious and clean with a big comfortable bed. It also had air-con and a clean shared bathroom.

There are several shared spaces such as the rooftop terrace or a big living room very well decorated with a big tv, a computer and a library where you can borrow all kinds of books, guides and magazines.

There is a free wi-fi access everywhere in the guesthouse.

And Zoul, the host was very nice and helpful as soon as we asked him for some advice !

The only thing that could be a negative point is that the bar located next to the guesthouse is noisy, but it didn't really bother us.

If you travel to Melaka, prefer getting there on Thursdays and Fridays for the Chinatown night Market !! (same street as the guesthouse)

Yes people, believe everything people have already written here...room and the facilities are o-kay..host? not!!! no decorum, enough said. Tho there was one young boy working there, I felt like rescuing him before being turned into the exact replica of the host (he's already wearing same outfit)

Stay here if you can ignore the host - just be rude to him back.

I stayed in Number Twenty Guesthouse Twice.
First time - Dec 2010.
Second time - Feb 2011.

I was rather prepared to be greeted by sarcastic host and any other bad reviews that i had read. Reason why i still choose this hotel because to me i think its convenient and its always good to try it out myself in order to convince myself that its really not worth a stay.

Well, i was wrong ...

(1) Host was very friendly despite we were very late during the first trip check in. (Not very good in english verbally but still manage to talk to us, welcome us with warm smile in the hot day)
(2) Room are spacious, clean and just like what was shown in the pictures.
(3) Bedsheets are not stained or sandwiches with hairs etc (Which i read from other website reviews)
(4) Not to mention, location is awesome. Its enjoyable looking at the busy night market from top view instead of normal human view. (Just another personal preference.)
(5) Open rooftop is a hidden gem at night where u can enjoy live band contribution from the restaurant below.
(6) If you need to keep food in fridge etc, just keep the host notify. He will help you with it and collect from him when needed.
(7) Host is not always around in the guesthouse but contactable via mobile.
(8) Toilet / bath room is well kept too.
(9) Free Wifi

For the price that i am paying, i think this guesthouse deserved to be recommended.

For fussy travellers that prefer peaceful quiet nights etc, not to mention in this guesthouse, any hotel / guesthouse along jonker street will not be suitable for you :)
