Located in Hang Jebat alley, by the riverside and only 500 m from Jonker Walk; this is the right area to stay if you visit Malaka. First impression, the interior has traditional Chinese touch, clean and feels very homey. Ground floor is reception area; sitting room with comfortable sofa, coffee corner; and mini cafe+bar. We can see the river through the traditional chinese folding gate at the backside. Very nice. We stayed at the Duplex Room #4 on the 2nd floor. Bathroom and storage room with big dining table on the lower deck and bedroom on the upper deck. The bedroom is an attic with low ceiling and no windows, it felt claustrophobic. Overall it was a great stay, I'd love to stay here again but definitely will choose another room that has windows and balcony.

This is a cosy, very well-run guest house operated by a couple, not one of those huge impersonal hotels for large tour groups. It is located on Lorong Hang Jebat, near Jalan Tokong where the oldest temple the Cheng Hoon Teng temple in Malaysia is situated. It is also within walking distance to many of the attractions in the heritage area. Rooms are clean and well appointed with an old world theme although the main lounge area is not. Lian the lady owner is very helpful and will point you to places of interest and good eateries nearby. It's hard to find parking right in front of the hotel but there is a large public car park just behind the hotel across the bridge just behind the hotel.

Never regretted choosing this place for my short stay in Malacca. This guesthouse is perfectly located such that travelling to most of the historical sites, eating places and shopping areas is easy and hustle-free! I thoroughly enjoyed the lovely ambience and homely feeling I got when I entered the guesthouse. The lady host was very approachable, friendly and always smiled. She provided easy and clear information when we asked about places to eat in the vicinity. She provided a handy map by the guesthouse as well! We managed to enjoy good food around the area with her recommendations. The room is comfortable and clean with a bed that was so comfortable for a good night's rest after exploring the streets of Malacca. The first floor of the guesthouse provide a decent, airy space

It's a lovely budget hotel / home stay located at the heart of the tourist area of Malacca. It's clean and comfortable although I found the mattress rather lumpy. All rooms are up flights of stairs so if you have trouble with stairs this place isn't for you. Parking is by the street and it's purely up to your luck. There is a paid parking about 300 meters away. Make sure not to park below the trees or else you will come back to your car covered in bird poo.

This hotel couldn't be more central - right at the river and in walking distance to all other historical sites. The rooms are spacious and the quality of furniture/decoration is good and appealing. They don't serve breakfast but there are multiple choices in walking distance.

We found the hotel when we were tired of looking and we were lucky. The price was not so cheap but its worth. The lady was very kind and showed us very clear the ways. She even gave free drinks whenever we wanted. The room was very clean and very nice with old design, bathroom was too big and we could see the whole view of River Malacca. We really enjoyed and hope to come back again. Thank you!

This little guest house of 9 rooms is situated right slap bang in the center of the touring area alongside the canal. Room 6 (where my wife & I stayed) is the upper story room overlooking the canal with a lovely balcony. The owner can't be more helpful. The guesthouse is really cosy with fine old furniture and decor. Breakfast not included but with many coffee shops and restaurants around, it's not a problem. Our room being next to the canal was a little noisy at night but the balcony and view more than compensated. One of Melaka's gems I'm sure.

I was recommended this guest house. Apparently if you take one of the suites they have balcony doors leading onto the river. I was in a room as the suites were booked. The rooms was spacious, had a comfortable bed with good air con. As soon as you walked into the bathroom area the heat hits you as there isn't any air con in there. There was also the largest boiler I've ever seen! It was clean, there was water but no safe. The owner of the guest house is a lovely lady who upon check in gives you a map of Melaka which is pretty useful. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available all day on the ground floor. They don't serve breakfast or other food. It's a big ground floor and there's lots of places just to sit. If you go to the rear you open the doors and you are straight onto the

If you're after a small, locally run place to stay in this wonderful city you'll be hard pressed to find anywhere better. It is a guest house, so bare that in mind. It doesn't have a restaurant, but there's many very close by with the main street about 200 metres away. The owners are very friendly, even gave us some home grown fruit for our travels when we checked out.

Stay with my family in this guesthouse for 2 nights. Location wise is good. Very close to jonker street and all the famous food spots. Room wise is clean and enough for family of three. No TV in the room but that did not bother too much. Internet connection wise is good. Owner is kind and nice to recommended some good food around the guesthouse.
