If you're ok with little bit noise from night life nearby, this is your absolute choice of a simple, budget yet cosy environment as place to rest yourself for next day's journey. In addition, if you found yourself sleepless at night, you can enjoy the night riverview where colours by the lightning along the side of river and passed by...

If the tacky, worn-down decor doesn't put you off then the paper thin walls just might, as we could literally hear every single movement our fellow guests were making (the fact that they were behaving like stereotypical Chinese tourists - e.g. slamming doors and stomping the floorboards on their way to the bathrooms - only exacerbated the problem). The guest...

Like most of the traveler, i did my research of this place. Most of the complaint i read was about the noise coming from the pub next to the house. For my trip, fortunately i found that this claim was a bit over the top. Sure you can hear some noises but it just not to the point that would...

Location is good and room was good enough, but bathrooms could definitely use some love and noise can be an issue. If you're on a budget, I reckon it is a great choice though! It is quite close to town and we didn't have any hassles while staying there. Also, awesome dog. :)

This hotel has pretty good reviews as it's centrally located in Melaka. It takes about 20 mins to walk to Jonker Street or the main part. The receptionist was a Chinese man who was awful ! He couldn't give me directions and told me one museum was a half an hour drive away when it was only 20 mins walking...

“Preferably take the first floor rooms, a bit far from the noise coming from the pub and chose the farthest room from the bathrooms, you don't want to hear squeaky noise late in the night from those going to the bathrooms.”
