  • The place is beautiful and there is free food (excellent banana cake, fruits and drink) but I think there is too much traffic jam close to the dorm for a 5/5. You definitly need hear plug and wait until 11pm or even 12am before sleep if you are same side of the street.

  • The guest house is really my cup of tea! when i just came in i was warmly welcomed by the host Raymond, here you will feel like at home,and the couple are very helpful and considered , Raymond even offer a hand draw map copy for us,showing us the famous places of sightseeing and restaurants. And his wife Mani baked very delicious cookies and cakes and bread for us.the location is very convenient, just located by the Melaka river. The decoration is very Malay style. I like it very much.

  • the guest house is an old and traditional house, located in Melaka old town centre, the back door is Melaka River, easier to the sightseeing points and restaurants by walking. Living room, dinning room, kitchen, lobby and sitting room are big enough. Clean rooms and beddings, nice staffs, cheap price, free hand made cakes, free fresh fruits and free coffee and tea, but the kitchen not allowed for cooking. We, four persons, stayed 4 days, I think you never find such a traditional house in town
