Very Enjoyable One Week Stay

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 weeks ago
I had a week between business meetings in Kuala Lumpur. 5 Heeren was a wonderful way to escape the city and relax. I stayed in a suite with balcony overlooking Melaka River. Interesting furnishings and very clean. Excellent Malaysian breakfast fed me all day. Helpful staff. Good internet and I even got some work done. Great experience.
Date of stay: April 2024
Room Tip: I suggest a sleep mask. There is outside lighting.
Trip type: Travelled solo

Outstanding. Highly recommend. We had the room with a view over the river with a huge terrace. Best view you could get in the old city. The hotel is unique run by its owner who greets you and offers a huge amount of useful information. The reception is full of old antiques and even the building itself is fascinating ( took 7 years to renovate). The staff were so helpful finding us and booking some fab restaurants for the evening ( only breakfast here). I can’t recommend this wonderful place enough.

Room tip: Very hot, pace yourself. Local tourism mainly. Do the river cruise. Ignore all the Blackpool lights in the evening! Drink the local coffee.

My husband and I were on a trip in malaysia and stayed at the 5 Heeren hotel for 1 night. The house is an old parokan mansion full of antiques and traditional tools and the place is spotless. The lady owner and her staff Made our stay unforgettable by giving us the best room, a suite with unique view on the canal, and a typical malysian breakfast which was very tasty and had a large variety of choices. Try their the if you go as it is special. When we left they even gave us some local handmade cakes for our next journey.

Room tip: If you travel in high season remember to book a parking space

Had a great time in this wonderful hotel. The hotel is packed with antiques and has a great atmosphere. The staff were super helpful and the owner was so very welcoming and made our short stay one to remember. Would love to stay again next time we are in Melaka.

Room tip: Very central, everything is in walking distance.

You have to experience this beautiful boutique hotel to understand how special it is. Kamilla Tan has put years into restoring this historic building. A gracious host, she wants all her guests to experience authentic Peranakan hospitality.....and we sure did. We were fortunate to have the large room on the second floor with our own large private terrace overlooking the river. We were treated like royalty and served typical Nyonya breakfasts- Chicken Rice, Nasi Lemak, Chicken Rendang, Curry Puffs & and an array of coconut desserts— no need for lunch. Kamilla, her daughter and son-in-law and her staff are caring and considerate and we highly recommend 5 Heeren !!!

Fabulous service and attention to every detail is the hallmark of this hotel that is full of fascinating antiques. The rooms and beds are well appointed and very comfortable, and the sumptuous breakfast of traditional Nyonya delights is to die for!
