    Cheap price”

    Room was clean. I took the room with shared bathroom since I need very short stay. This guest house is very near to many attractions. The only drawback is lack of parking space, if you come by car. But if you are a backpacker, this will be great place to stay. The owner was very friendly too

    Favorite host during our whole trip!”

    Kawan Kawan was like a home. Thinks were provided for (drinking water, cups, utensils, etc.) and the place was very clean and well maintained! Best of all, Mrs. Tan was very welcoming and accommodating. She was very helpful and hospitable and offered things that would make our stay comfortable. I could only wish that all hosts are like her.

    Home away from home. Their warmth and care is more than you could ask for. Service is exceptional that they even stayed late waiting for us to check-in. Room is very cozy and super clean. With all the amenities provided. Hotel is strategically located at the center, near to all the tourist spots of Melacca. We had a very restful and enjoyable stay. Thank you Ms. Joanne for making us feel like family!

    The best guesthouse in Jonker Street ”

    Everything is good except for the limited parking slots in front of the guesthouse. The owner is friendly and helpful. The location is superb as it is located nearby to the most of tourist attractions in Malacca By the way, the guesthouse in Jonker Street is more expensive than other areas.

    If you go, request a room away from the showers and toilets, as it's quite noisy. I would have enjoyed the space more with a private bathroom- for the price with a shared, you might as well find a dormitory for cheaper and a little cleaner.

    Place very clean and tidy.. I think for improveness a mirror can be added in the room to ease us to wear tudung (etc).... Location very strategic.. Only walking distance to jonker street and bandar hilir.. Only a bit noise if you get a room beside the road.. Quite noisy when everytime beca passes through the road. The landlady also very friendly and nice..

    This guest house is a traditional house, with the only stair to reach the second floor. It's easy to go to tourist spots from here on foot. It is clean and tidy. The staff is friendly and helpful, there's a small grocery store next to the lobby. Drinking water and shared fridge are provided. There're 2 shared toilets and 3 shared bathrooms which are clean. The rooms are clean and tidy, they're also equipped with AC and fan. If you are wearing a hijab, you can borrow hair dryer to use in the bedroom after you wash the hair.

    Average accommodation ”

    When I arrived at 6pm there was no one at reception. I had to wait for staff to arrive. I had to wait around again to check out. There is really nothing special to this hotel. My room was very plain. Bathroom was clean. The common space was lacking. As a solo foreign traveler, I did not enjoy this hotel. Staff was not around to answer questions. There was no common space to meet other travelers.
