About The Baba House Hotel


This city center boutique hotel still holds the charms of a traditional Chinese Baroque and Chinese Palladian house. Antique furniture and Chinese Victorian and Dutch interior designs are elements that set The Baba House Hotel apart from other hotels. Guests will be transported back to the bygone era during their stay, yet the convenience of being right in the heart of historic Malacca makes it easy to enjoy all that the city has to offer. Within walking distance of the hotel are renowned tourist attractions, antique shops, shopping outlets, and Jonker Street. Every unit at The Baba House Hotel is tastefully furnished. Baba Cafe, a massage center, and courtyard are some of the leisure facilities provided to make the stay even more memorable.

Second Visit And Will Come Back For More
For a place to rest our aching legs and tired body after a whole day of touring Melacca, Baba House Hotel is not only economical and affordable, it's quite a pleasant place to stay too. However, the breakfast are always the same (I've stayed there for 3 breakfast already), even though my stays are one month apart, and it taste and looks awful. In fact, only thing that looks good are the bread !! But well, you get what you pay for, and I'll still stay there for my next visit. Just that I won't take the breakfast anymore.

Dirty and very mouldy bathroom
First night, the bathroom was a disgrace with thick mould on wall and shower curtain. Complained to receptionist and showed her the bathroom. She herself was surprised and took photos to show to management. She was kind to upgrade us to queensize deluxe room and we were happy and willing to then stay an extra night. I do hope they clean up that bathroom.
