                  Great host. Great location. Great stay.”

                  The husband and wife team who runs this guest house are amazing. There's full kitchen access, rooms on the river and it's walking distance pretty much everywhere

                  Centrally located in Malacca in the heart of the historic section of town the Oriental Guest House is one of the best stays we've had through our travels. Upon our arrival we were greeted and made welcome right away. Our host provided us a hand tailored map of the surrounding area and made a point to sit down with us to ensure that any questions we had were answered. Our room (#8) had a great view of the river which was just below and is accessible from the kitchen on the ground floor. The room had both a fan and A/C (which we didn't need except on rare occasions). There are two communal bathrooms which are both cleaned regularly and have hot water showers. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas range and we share the fridge with our hosts and the other guests. There are a few things that stand out about Oriental Riverside Guesthouse: 1. Kind hosts Both the owner and his wide are kind and were always available to lend a hand or chat while we spent time in the common areas. They know the city and have a good sense of what people who visit Malacca are looking to do. During our stay they drove us (in their car) to the local supermarket when we asked where one was located (there is a bus that takes you direct as well). We spent a couple of nights out at the locals market with them and very much enjoyed their company. 2. Kitchen We travel a lot and enjoy being able to cook for ourselves. There is a giant Tesco just a short bus ride away and a small supermarket just next door for simple items. The gas range was great and the kitchen never closes. The guest house never felt over crowded so we were able to cook a few of our meals and when we didn't feel like cooking we walked to the local spots which were very affordable. 3. Centrally located It was a little tricky the first time into Malacca to get a sense of direction but shortly after walking around it becomes very easy to navigate the streets. We look forward to the next time we're able

                  Perfect location, excellent river view at night, clean

                  Good things come cheap sometimes, and this is best to describe Oriental Riverside. This small guesthouse is perfectly located in the heart of the city, where major tourist attractions are within walking distance. The twin sharing room does not have an attached bathroom, but it was okay for us as the shared bathroom is right beside our room. We chose the room facing the river and the view was excellent at night. The guesthouse provides basic and useful amenities as well, such as free WiFi, free DVD titles and satellite TV programs, kitchen and washing machine, and not to mention free bicycle rental. One thing to note though - during our stay we managed to view the rooms without windows (two rooms beside the entrance and one at the first floor). These rooms are cheap but we don't recommend it. Because there are no windows these rooms are somewhat stuffy. They are also along the walkways and can be noisy too.

                  Relaxing. Restful. Clean. Highly Recommended!”

                  River View. Helpful and friendly staff with city orientation upon check in. Room is big with windows.

                  We had a wonderful night at the Oriental Riverside Residence Guest House. We stayed from Saturday to Sunday, September 21-22. Booking was easy and affordable through agoda. What you see is what you get. It is a hostel with an excellent room with riverside view. They have some rooms without views or windows so make sure you request for Room #8 if you want to know what we experienced. The room is quite simple with rustic furniture that give it a homey feel. On occasions one can hear thenpassing Melaka River Cruise boats. They also have a small bench outside on the river path where you can chill and just wave at the passing boats. There is also a convenience store next door. Very convenient. Shared bathrooms are very clean and simple. Towels are provided.

                  Never a better guest house at this rate”

                  riverside view

                  When I reached the guest house, i was given a choice of having the riverside view or the top floor. if you were to choose the top floor,you will face the traffic which is what I don't really like while the next is riverside view and I prefer this more. For your information, this room is room No.5. Advantages: 1) room is clean and wide with good air-con. 2) toilet is clean and very near to my room. 3) very friendly guest house owner who is always smiling and greet me. He also introduced alot of places to visit in Melaka to me and the direction to get there. 4) walking distance to Jonker Street (around 5minutes and a nice and cheap dim sum shop nearby the hotel) 5) you can take a walk behind the guest house which is the riverside and the view is even better at night with the lighting along the river. Disadvantages: 1) the signboard of the guest house isn't very big so you won't see it easily 2) the ceiling fan in my room is not clean
