                location and friendly staff

                The hotel is just two blocks away from the Jonker Walk. It's a good area to shop and eat at night. Across the bridge are Melaka Heritage sites. Biking around town is a popular way to explore. Cheng Ho owners have a bike rental and restaurant near the guesthouse. There's a free breakfast on their restaurant which was just so-so and repetitive.

                Near to Jonker Street, helpful staff, clean bedroom

                My stay was pleasant. It's a great place if you're only in Malacca for the weekend. The room is clean, I don't have bed bugs issue like some other reviews had. The bathroom is clean although it's a shared one. Less than 5 minutes walk to Jonker street. A great place to meet other travellers too! The only issue I had is the parking for my car as I drove to Malacca.

                Cheng Ho Guesthouse is located just inside the jonker street. We rented bicycle and rode around the area, joyful ride. Rental from ChengHo will need not deposit for bicycle and that save us a lot of hassle as we did not bring much cash. Shopping centre just nearby, we walked there on first night and rode bicycle to there on second night.

                TINY ROOMS”

                BED,TOILETS,DISTANCE TO JONKER STREET

                People keep coming to Cheng Ho because of the reviews it receives but I feel for them to improve we have to give good honest comments for them to be better. The rooms are really tiny and property in Melaka is not the most expensive. The owners probably wanted to get as much income per day by getting as many people to stay in their guesthouse by constructing these small rooms. Yes true, the price is about RM 50 and if one converts it into USD or Pounds it is peanuts. The room consist of only a bed,a table,a plastic chair, a table fan and a BROKEN table lamp. The AC is cold but the temp is set with a timer which we couldnt fix or adjust. It would be cold for half hour and we'd have to press ON again to make it cold again. It's a very difficult place to find parking. One has to turn several times to look for a space. We arrived at night and when we checked out the next day, we already received a parking ticket or summon from the local municipal council clipped to our wiper and we were parked very near to the entrance of the guesthouse.The reception didnt even say anything to us about buying parking coupons. Agoda should highlight the guesthouses which are more suitable for guests who may be travelling to Melaka by bus, taxi or train as Cheng Ho and alert/advise potential customers to this guesthouse that parking is really difficult. We only managed to get the parking space very late at night when the Jonker Street vendors were in the midst of closing their businesses. My advice to the owners, to please evaluate the size of the rooms and make them a little bigger. Profit is not everything.

                the room was claen and compact. friendly staff and attend to your requests. a nice gesture to provide internet service and tv at the reception area. the guest house is only few minutes walk to jonker walk, one thing to note that it is opposite the moseque and you have to prepeare that braodcast few times a day. overall, recommend for those budget travellers

                Location, price

                easy to find location, even all the taxi drivers there in malaka would know this guesthouse. night market is just 1 block away, which means you can get easy access for shopping without people disturbing you when you're taking your nap. the receptionist is nice and would give you guides to most of tourist attractions & recommended restaurant there, and even give you reminder to be aware of pickpockets. most of tourist attractions are in walking distance, and even the rooms are generally neat and tidy, there are some stains on bedsheets and that's why i doubt about their cleanliness. they have 3 toilets on each floor. when we went there, the waterheater in 1 of the cubicles was not functioning, we also had complaint about small water pressure at some cubicles. but after all, this guesthouse is recommended for people who look for a cheap, strategic accomodation

This is a budget backpacker hotel with the good service attitude. One of the better located around Jonker Street.

                1. The location was just right. 2. We get to choose our rooms. 3. The air-cons and other amenities were all working.

                We were a family of 7, wanting a quick holiday before heading back to KL. We fetched our son and daughter in law from the airport and hit straight to Melaka. My wife is from Melaka and so we are no strangers in Melaka. But to stay the night at Jonker Street where the hotel is located is an experience. It was pleasant despite the negative review. It's a good place to start as there are many attractions and local food nearby. We never fail to drop by our favorite chicken ball rice nearby.

The date we chose to stay there fall on the same date with Thaipusam, so we were woken up early by the prayer from nearby temple. Apart form that, it was a nice experience

                The hotel was booked for my girlfriend and her roommate. They went there for a night stay but had some rather unpleasant experience. It was during the hungry ghost festival and the temple beside was having some spiritual ceremony and my girlfriend and her roommate both had some unusual and funny activities going on in their room scaring the hell out of them both and stayed up all night. Other than that, everything overall was fine and value for the money as a budget guesthouse.
