I arrived at 12 midnight and had an easy check-in, which I was very thankful for. It was a quiet night in Malacca, could easily find a parking spot right in front of the B&B. Rooms are upstairs and mine was a queen-sized bed with just a side table, an air-conditoner and a wall fan. There's no TV. Didn't matter...

I can not believe people say this is a budget place. NO IT'S NOT! This is definitely my worst experience in 4 years travelling. I had a bus arriving in Malacca at 7 AM, I messaged them saying that and they said that would be no problem. Waited in front of the door for 20 minutes until someone come, the...

Stayed there for a night recently. The only reason for the 2 stars rating was bcos of location. If you're calling this a budget hotel....You have to be kidding me !! Paid a 3 - 4 star Hotel price (NOT public holiday) for a small room which needed to share bathroom in the common area. Worst was after lathering up...

The staff was lovely and very helpfull. The room was clean, super clean(shared bathroom). Location is the best. Wifi super. They have some bikes for you to rent. They have a terrace upstairs near the bathroom and kitchen and the view is the marvelous Malacca river. At afternoon they open a mini cafe alongside the river.

Nice view, amazing environment. It is an amazing budget hotel for people who like to experience melaka's jonker street. It even has an amazing view facing the melaka river. It is outside of the room which is still nice. The room include wifi which is okay, but who needs wifi when you're on jonker street? In conclusion, it is not...

Not a place for us to recommend or return. The room we stayed has a attached bathroom and it needs proper cleaning. Room conditions are poorly maintain and DEFINATELY needs CLEANING/ENCHANCEMENT. Bed conditions are acceptable. Staff are courteous.

It's a very comfortable and yet very clean hotel. Very convenient to the Jonker Walk area where you can get easy excess to almost everything. The host are friendly and safety are secure. Close to Orang Utan and Hard Rock Cafe. Walking distance to the Historical Centre.

This was a very nice room. A well maintained property. It's a pitty the Chinese families and their kids running around random hours. Made it a little irritating. Having said that the stay was mostly pleasant. Water dispenser, hot and cold, a river side opening to walk to, a cafe, steady wifi, decent air condition etc.
