Value for money budget stay”
This place is value for money and the location is really good. It is just a walking distance to Jonker street and places of attraction around it. The staff is friendly and the place is clean too. Overall I would highly recommend this place.

i stay here for one night , this place feel like home , the owner is nice. the room small but clean and the AC was good , the living room at second floor ia good with view Malacca river , iya good to stay here . Saeful Indonesia
Location, location, location....”
The view form the 2nd floor looking down and up the river with folks strolling by is just wonderful, tho all the tour boats can get a bit loud after about 20 of them go by! Staff are super helpful, owners friendly. Hey and you get free tea, coffee, toast or cookies and right down the street is the Jonkor walk on weekends. For a hostel type accommodation just a tad expensive but the staff and views make up for the little extra. This was my third time there, need I say more..
Very helpful staff and lovely place!!”
We arrived late at Malacca because of the unexpected long travel and probably arrived around 9-10 pm. Wendy and her other friend on the next day were very helpful throughout our stay at their guesthouse even though we arrived so late. River One residence is located beside the Jonker River and very lovely at night. I truly regret that we only stayed here for one night. The view is amazing. Everything can be reach by foot from all the main tourist spots and UNESCO world heritage sites. They've got free coffee and other stuff and you can even use the fridge, plates... well basically everything as long as you return it to where it come from. Will come back and stay longer next time!!!
Will definitely stay here again. ”
Very Clean, great shower, great pantry/kitchen is obvious though I didn't have time to use it, great living area overlooking the riverside walk and river. But most of all, the genuine warmth and personal touch of the owner/operator of the establishment. Second to none that I have experienced anywhere.
P tranquil corner outlooking the river. The view was beautiful with boat running through. The hostel offfered cafe and drinks (self-served), so you have the feeling of setting in a cafe. The dorm was clean with only 4 people each room. Thank you the land lady with a lot of recommendations also.
what a beautiful and classic”
i love this place so much... feels like home. the staf so nice and friendly, the place so comfort, and the view so romantic , malaca river, wooow so wonderful... so close with Jonker area.. love it very much.. i'll come again :*
Never under estimate the place.”
For people who intend to visit/tour the Malacca, there is always to start walking from the heart of Malacca, the Jonker area of Malacca. This venue locate quite strategic, not to mention the nice scenery of river view from the 1st floor, which already priceless is certain sense. The facilities is acceptable, free water, coffee and tea provided at the pantry. Not to mention the free WiFi is provided.
Thank you very much. Thanks for support. Please come again. Have a nice day
Friendly staff and strategic location”
Went on a 1 day trip with my gf and although we book the room at 9pm and got to the hotel at 10pm, we are warmly greeted by the reception staff and after our check in procedure, we are given a short tour around the residence and informed of the facilities available to us. This would be the best backpackers residence as they have cooking facilities and complementary coffee and teas for your reach. The room is with no windows but the bed and blanket is overall clean so does the environment of the whole residence. Will definitely stay back with them.
nice, lovely and pleasant”
The place was pretty quaint, with a lovely setting in the common area and a nice view of the river. Located at the heart of jonker, it is easy to travel on foot all over the places. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Pretty safe as well.
Highly recommended place”
I truly enjoy the stay in this place, love the people there. They are easy going and fun to be with. I stayed with two Filipino friends and they said they will highly recommend the place to others. I guess I will too. The room is condusive with a clean environment. I truly like the riverside view. I feel like home.
Great location and friendly staff”
We enjoyed our stay at River One because of the great location. The staff were extremely helpful and offered suggestions about what to do in Malacca. Our room was comfortable - the view of the river and sidewalk from our window was spectacular (especially at night). There was a large upstairs terrace where you could sit and read, meet up with other travellers or just watch the boats on the river. Malacca is very humid so we enjoyed having air conditioning in our room. River One is located near the township - there are plenty of great places to eat. It is very close to where the night markets are held. River One is good value for money.
Stay on 27/5/2014 till 28/5/2014, with a groups of ladies, booked 8 rooms. The hotel was very clean and we had a good sleep. Homely feeling, near to the historical places, food stalls, shopping mall, Indian street where you can get many items and foods. We cruise the boat to see the Malacca city for half hours. It was very good. We were able to cook and use the things in the Hotel. Free flow of drinks, coffee and tea. Coffee in the room. Superb holidays with a affordable price. Tight security also.
Close to Jonker Street”
Stay was good. Abundant toilet facilities, with very clean shared toilets. Owner of hotel is Mr Cool, who is a very friendly guy. If you need any help or assistance, he will be there to lend you a helping hand. We also liked the fact that the hotel overlooked the Malacca River, beautiful view throughout the day.
Great location and super friendly front desk”
Although I was there only for a night but this place is centrally located in the heart for historical town of Melaka as well as by the super nice Melaka River. Additionally the staff from Iceland is very helpful and attentive. Definitely, will come back to stay with them if I'm in Melaka again.
Very value for money”
The most value for money stay. It offers a fantastic view of the malacca river. A stone throw away from historical sites and from jonker street. Shared bathroom were clean bedroom also. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Great location! Friendly Staff!”
I've been staying for a night at this hotel with 3 frieds. It is a two storey shoplot which has been converted to a guesthouse. Entering the room,it was clean and simple. Towel is provided. The Shared bathroom is spacious and very clean.Shower gel is provided.The bed was quite comfortable and clean. The room with window next to the main road was noisy at night with cars passing by. My friends stayed in the middle room is more quiet, and she didn't really hear the car noice at night. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful.
Chilled by the River”
This is a great little riverside guest house in Malaka. The girlfriend/boyfriend team looking after the place were charming and very helpful with calling cabs and even helping to find a local bar that played 6 Nations rugby. The river can kick up a whiff when a boat passes by but most of the time it is unnoticeable. The room was basic but clean and the Wi-Fi was free and with a strong signal! Te upper floor opened up to the river and was a great place to kick back and read a book, catch up emailing and generally kicking back and relaxing. Tea and coffee was available at any time, you just needed to make it yourself. Shared showers and toilets are not to everyone's liking but if you want a well run, cheap and clean place to stay while visiting this great town, you can't go far wrong.
Quaint place with the best view”
When you come in the hotel, first thing you notice is its riverside view especially at night! All the tourist spots around Melaka are easily accessible and walkable from the hotel. The staff/owner, Kong, was friendly and suggested easy routes and places for us to go. The hotel was clean (no slippers allowed inside) and provided the standard needs of a traveler.
Good location, nice river view”
The nicest thing is the receiptionist, a guy from Europe (surprised a bit). Even the photos on Agoda look old, but the actual rooms and public areas in the hotel are quite comfortable. I really like the balcony area where I stayed and do some email works. The view to the river is quite calm and romantic.
