Riverview is located in the heart of Melaka. Although it is on a street that is narrow, busy and noisy, it has a very cool and cosy feel once inside. The best thing is that, just like what its name implies, it has a riverview! and a kitchen to cook or simply pig ot on the lovely nice free daily...

Good location, walkable distance to Jonker street and other eateries. behind is the river and there is a rooftop with tables overlooking at the river so it is quite romantic. Room is basic and clean. The owner's son helped us out a lot during our stay. The only cons is that there is mosquito, so bring your mosquito cream.

Riverview Guesthouse is in a beautiful old building located right on the Melaka River, which makes for a beautiful walk out the back door into the main part of town (5-10 mins) past more of Melaka's charming buildings. It's very close to all of the main attractions in Melaka including the mosques, museums, temples and colonial sites. We arrived on...

Booked all three beds in the three bed dorm. This turned out to be a damp and crumbling cell of a room on the ground floor, right next to reception (not great when noisy people check in at 2am) and with a window straight onto the street (which made it very noisy with mopeds and pedestrians passing by). Bedding and...

Every once and a while I check into a hotel and it completely surpasses my expectations of a 'budget' place. This is one of those places and I loved it. We stayed for two nights, but could have happily stayed longer. It's a very charming and lovely old house, clean, quiet and airy with beautiful communal areas including a balcony...

I absolutely loved this place!! I was in a huge room with a nice terrace looking out onto the river. It was a very different atmosphere to any other hostel we had come across, much quieter and with older guests. It has everything you need: - Hot water - Free wifi - Air con and fans - Great location nr...

I had such a lovely stay at the River View. We stayed there for 2 nights, the room was clean and a good size. The shared bathrooms are basic but very clean. The house has lots of character and backs onto the river. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, helping us find things around the town and recommending places...
