We had a great stay here mainly for the place itself - amazing AC and fan, the comfiest bed, clean shower and nice sitting area. The only downfall would be the owner didn't really make much effort, well didn't really say 2 words to us the whole time we were there, it was a bit weird.

It's quite affordable for one night, felt like home as they have shared kitchen, refrigerator and more. You can rent bikes here too. But i hope the owner can be friendlier to both locals and foreigners.

We stayed a week here, the residence is confortable and clean. You have a kitchen if you want to cook and free tea and coffee all the time. The owner, khoo, he is nice, friendly and helpful man. We loved to stay there because is quiet and peaceful, the lounge on the first floor invite you to relaxing.

We found Melaka to be such a lovely lovely place, made more memorable by our stay at River one residence with our gracious host, Mr. Cool himself.😉 (Not his real name for sure). The place was along the river and near jonker street. We enjoyed the unlimited biscuits offered. It was really delicious. The shared bath and toilets were clean...

This place is in an amazing location with a stunning view of the Melaka river. It's airy, breezy, and you wake up to the sound of Call to Prayer and the ringing of the distant bell tower. The hosts are very friendly and make you feel quite at home. The space is unique as well, with rooms mostly being on...

The place is in a good location within easy walk to most attractions within the heritage areas of Melaka. Have a view of Melaka river on the first floor but would have been even better if ground floor is done so that guests can have a seating area outside fronting the river. Place general clean and well kept. Bedsheet and...

I just had a 3D2N holiday with my son in Malacca. We have always stayed in 3 or 4 Stars hotels when we travel. We thought we'd go backpacking and try a no frills boutique hotel this time, just for the experience. We chose River One Residence for its location - along the Malacca River and close to Jonker Street....

I like the fact that its along a row of shophouses that continue to operate for locals. Nearby is a kopitiam too. Walking distance is the main street with many of Malacca's important heritage buildings. Moreover, it is clean and safe.
