Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was clean, room with pretty nice view on the colorful harbor, the towel and bedding fresh. Whole hotel was in colonial style and looks quite good. Toilet clean, staff polite, service was very good. Room not the not cheapest but worth the price.

It worked only sometimes and very slow. Otherwise everything... More

We arrived on a busy Sunday morning in Malacca and visited four different properties in this historic neighborhood to see where we wanted to stay. Heeren House was the clear winner: location, furnishings and hospitality. Ideally we wanted a room whose windows overlooked the river, and this was the place. Unlike all the other properties down the street, this was... More

The Chicken Rendang was very good and very affordable. The staff are nice and helpful and the beers and drinks are cheap. The restaurant was built by the Dutch over 200 years ago and the staff were very cool in talking about it.

Very friendly and helpful staff from my initial internet booking and throughout our stay. I arrived a bit early so ordered chicken pongteh for lunch. This dish has to be cooked slowly to make sure the gravy soaks completely into the potatoes, at which point the chicken should be done too. It was done perfectly in a pleasant aromatic sauce....
