You can't get a more authentic experience than staying in a Baba Nyonya house (next door to the museum and is exactly the same style and layout). The rooms were clean and the staff were brilliant. The steps were quite steep so I wouldn't recommend anyone with difficultly climbing stairs to stay.

That was the first time I stayed in guest house in Melaka so I prefer guest house in Jonker street which is the center of interest location in Melaka. I chose this guest house is because I see good reviews in trip advisor. I stayed there with my other 6 friends, so we booked 3 rooms. We came very late...

We decided to drop by for lunch and was surprised that it wasn't crowded even though it was very near to Jonker Walk. A friendly gentleman took our orders of Nyonya Laksa, Popiah & Otak-Otak. The Nyonya Laksa looked good and tasted delicious with the right balance of aromatic curry spices cooked in coconut milk with generous toppings of prawns...

Pretty disappointed with the customer service at Cafe 1511. There were 2 staffs in particular that were extremely rude. One was a Chinese young lady prolly in her mid 30s or slightly older, short hair. And the other one, in her late 20s or early 30s long hair with specs. I was basically at the counter area searching for the...

I visited Melaka in May this year with a friend, and found this place in the last minute. I had booked for my stay via hotel.com, but only to realize that I had booked on the WRONG DATE! I was suppose to stay on Saturday but somehow mistakenly booked on Sunday. I gave them a call and was really grateful...

Stopped here for a cool drink in the beautiful shady surroundings of House 3 of the Baba Nyonya Museum and were tempted by the cheap but interesting food on the menu. I loved my cucumber and lime drink which went well with a Nyonya laksa. The other nibbles on the menu were great too but I can't remember their names....

สำหรับคนถวิลหาบรรยากาศเก่าๆ คาเฟ่ 1511 น่านะเป็นคำตอบที่ดีเชียวล่ะ คาเฟ่แห่งนี้เป็นโฮสเทลขนาดกระทัดรัด ที่ตั้งอยู่ในโซนเมืองเก่ามะละกา ตัวอาคารถูกดัดแปลงจากโครงสร้างเก่า ให้ดูทันสมัยขึ้น แต่ยังคงกลิ่นอายของตีกสไตล์โคโลเนียลเอาไว้ และด้วยกฏของการห้ามดัดแปลงอาคาร ทำให้พื้นที่ใช้สอยจึงค่อนข้างจำกัด เช่นไม่มีห้องน้ำแยกส่วนตัว มีเพียงห้องน้ำรวมเท่านั้น (ใครเป็นคนประเภทส่วนตัวม๊ากมาก คงไม่เหมาะ) แต่ฉันเลือกโฮสเทลคาเฟ่แห่งนี้ก็เพราะตั้งอยู่ใจกลาง เดินไปไหนมาไหนง่ายและสะดวก ตั้งอยู่ติดกับพิพิธภัณฑ์บาโบโนนยา พิพิธภัณฑ์ไฮไลท์ของมะละกา แถมพนักงานของโรงแรมก็บ้านๆกันเองๆ (ไม่ได้บอกว่าดีหรอกนะ) ทั้งหมดทั้งมวลมันทำให้รู้สึกว่าเป็นส่วนหนึ่งของเมืองนี้ดี ป.ล.เกร็ดเล็กเกร็ดน้อย 1511 คือปี ค.ศ.ที่โปรตุเกสยึดครองมะละกา Are you looking for Old feeling?

“If you have an elder person, perhaps not suits you because no lift and they have very narrow staircase. If you don't like too quiet at night feeling alone, this is also not suit you too. Good luck!”
