Wayfarer Guest House is located on Lorong Hang Jebat, which is a convienient location to most tourist sites in Meleka. The owner, Lian, was friendly and helpful, providing recommendations of local places to eat at. The rooms were clean and cosy. The price was reasonable. If you are a cat lover, there is a cute stray cat that comes in...

I" This is it", I thought, It is what conjurers up in the mind when you think of exotic Malaka.Wooden floors lead onto French shutters doors that open onto the balcony, that over looks the clean river, [only saw one empty plastic bottle on the river in 6 days.] Sit out and gaze down on the meandering tourists, grazing at...

Right in front of Melacca River cruise with an excellent ambience. Clean and tidy with historic and classic interior design. Liam the owner is very friendly and also stay there. Location is few meter away from 'Jonker Street'. Value for money and plan to stay again when in Malacca.

Booked this guesthouse to experience life beside the river. It did not disappoint! Except for the consistent engine from the river cruise and some bar music opposite, it was a pleasant stay. Ours was a basic room with a huge bed and interesting character. The owners tried to add comfort by providing self-service hot beverage, which enhanced the experience. We...

Tastefully furnished and well appointed bathroom. Tea and coffee provided. The owners are gracious and friendly. You do feel welcome. Lastly the view from the...
