                Good.....except the place is little too old fashioned or dusty.”

                Unlimited coffee, tea, toast, snack and biscuits are enough for me to recommend this hotel. The rooms are alright. Parking is not free, RM10-15 (one time only payment) , 2 min walk away also but you will get a spot at Jonker Walk which usually cost RM5 each entry at day/night so that is still forgivable. Just 2 min walk away from the night market and quiet at the night still. Only downside is that the rooms & corridors look quite tired, could use a new coat of paint or decor. It could look run down soon if nothing is done to address it especially the top floors.

                Lovely house with interesting facts about General Cheng Ho and Masjid Kampung Kling”

                I booked Da Som Inn last minute with 1 night stay. I checked in quite late. However I met one Uncle. He is very knowledgeable about local history and shared a lot of interesting story with me. I did not expect that General Cheng Ho is a muslim and visited Cheng Ho Cultural Museum to find out more. I also visited Masjid Kampung Kling just opposite Da Som Inn. The mosque is unique with Chinese, Malay and Sumatera design . The location is very strategic with walking distance to a lot of tourist spot. I like the house too. Although it is very long, but it has some design which let the sun 'shine' / lighting. In order to preserve the house they can not do a lot of alternation. This may explain why the toilet are shared. They also ask whether are you a vegetarian before they prepare the breakfast. They also serve unlimited coffee and toast. Thank you Da Som Inn.

My boyfriend blew a fuse in his travel adapter and one the staff took it a shop to see if he could replace the fuse for him, which we really appreciated. The breakfast at this place is great and they have coffee and espresso and bread available for guests all day.

                Vintage hotel with decent facilities and very helpful and polite staff. Many main attractions are walking distance - like A Famosa, Porta Santiago, Dutch Square and of course Jonker Street. They give you a map of the main attractions as well as eating places and money changer nearby. There is free flow of bread, some biscuits and snacks, orange drink and tea coffee for the whole day !! Initially the room we took (no. 11) didnt have ventilation and strange smell, so they changed us to a better room.

                Location: Very accessible to Jonker Street. Just a couple of minutes walk away. Stay there on Fri - Sun. Thus, we visit Jonker everynight. Value for money: Location is good, price is reasonably cheap and cleanliness if alright. What else can be a better deal ? It is definitely value for money. Staff: Able to recommend good restaurant with tasty food to dine in, helping us call for GrabTaxi. Facilities: There is a common area on ground level that provide free flow of drinks like coffee, tea or chocolate drinks 24/7. Cleanliness: This is a old vintage building in those peranakan days. Building is abit old but still comfortable. Pillow is abit too thick. Room is very simple but without soap.

                Location wise, it is very near to all the famous landmarks. Practically almost all the famous landmarks are within walking distance. They serve pretty awesome breakfast and right beside it, you have the oldest and well known Dim Sum restaurant that serves very tasty dim sum. The inn provides basic bathing ammenties like soap, shampoo and towels. Really worth the value in terms of location.

                Overall had a pretty good stay at Da Som Inn. Conveniently close to Jonker Street. It's clean, airy and the people working there are friendly. Also within walking distance to most attractions near and around Jonker. The Inn is located right opposite a mosque so if you don't want to be woken by the morning prayer perhaps can request for a room in the back. The lighting in the room can be improve coz I feel it's a bit dimmed. Otherwise no complaints

                very quiet, great location. Staff was very friendly, very relaxing place. The only thing that was missing was that I wish breakfast or at least coffee/tea was served in the morning. Otherwise it was very nice experience

                Excellent location, cleanliness

                We stayed with Da Som for 3 nights, and was allocated Room 6. Noise level: We read about the morning mosque prayer, Room 6 is the second last room on the level two, and we could not hear the morning prayers at all. Wifi: Wifi signal is weak, but lying at the foot of the bed seems to help. And standing up helps too. Don't ask me why. Wifi still functional though, if slow. Cleanliness: Bathroom is so clean, even the plug chain is spotless. The sheets feel freshly laundered too. Provided in the room: two towels, a small square of soap and two packets of shampoo. Definitely bring your own toiletries. I didn't expect otherwise, and no issue with that for the price of the room. Location: Just one street behind Jonker Street, perfect location of 3 min walk from Jonker. Perfect proximity to Jalan Hang Jebat, Tun Tan Cheng Lock, no lack of food, provision shops, little knickknacks and things to explore. Jonker is really alive only on the weekend, week nights are quiet, though there are still dinner places to be had. Da Som is also right next to the famous dim sum place selling the famous big pau and lotus leaf rice.

                Well-loacted, friendly and helpful staff

                Da Som Inn enjoys the proximity to Jonker Walk and countryside quietness at the same time. Extremely convenient. We always returned to the inn to take some rest or when our bags were becoming full. Staff members were friendly and helpful. Once we bought two durians from the market and the man with a pony tail actively helped with packing the durians up into my luggage :D He also told us where we could get a taxi to Sentral with patience. Wifi connection was very good. The room was a little bit simple with one or two small bugs but it was no big deal. The electric water heater meant we had to wait a few minutes before taking a warm shower. The boss of the inn is Korean and there was a little Korean restaurant on the ground floor, but we were a little bit disappointed that it was never open. As a budget hotel Da Som Inn was more than OK and we would definitely make a return if we visit Melaka again.
