    This property is between Jonker Walk (where we wanted to have live band and drinks) and Baboon House (punch) and Pak Putra Tandoori (for dinner). It is a convenient middle point, plus you do not have to look for carpark.

    Limited parking and courtesy”

    Overall stay is just fine but u don't mess with the parking uncle. After my dinner, we were back to the hote but there is an empty car park, so I approach the uncle if I could park in, he said this has reserved for another customer, then I said later could you ask the receptionist to call at my cell phone if there is an empty parking cause we are heading out to Jonker street for shopping. So he never call, that's okay, when I'm back to the hotel I walked to him again and ask if any parking available? So here come the peak point of the story.. he said, just now I have knocked on your door but you were not there , I got no choice to let other to park.. and you must have courtesy. Just now earlier in the evening when you are heading out, you never smile to me or talk to me, shouldn't I be offering you the parking right.. you are my boss today I would do everything with your order. First, I don't simply smile to stranger, so I don't know I have to inform you to reservr me a parking Second if you have courtesy you would have tell us or ask if we are coming bsck later, do you need us to reserve the parking? Thirdly if I'm your bOSs, you will say hi to your boss and be extra mile for your boss. That I call thoughtful! Not about courtesy

    Second Visit And Will Come Back For More”

    For a place to rest our aching legs and tired body after a whole day of touring Melacca, Baba House Hotel is not only economical and affordable, it's quite a pleasant place to stay too. However, the breakfast are always the same (I've stayed there for 3 breakfast already), even though my stays are one month apart, and it taste and looks awful. In fact, only thing that looks good are the bread !! But well, you get what you pay for, and I'll still stay there for my next visit. Just that I won't take the breakfast anymore.

    Excellent hotel! It's a ancient Baba house, I love the design , I love the space, I love the ambient. I can have my own private moment in the house and enjoy my reading while the warm morning sunlight was showering on me. The location is near to the famous jonnker street, within a pleasant walking distance, and it's more peaceful without the visitors.

    Location, Price and Room

    Really enjoyed staying at The Baba House and I always have, I like the renovations they've done. I feel it not over done that it take away the feeling of staying in a old peranakan house. Some may say that the place is old but to me this is what gives this hotel its charm. Well Done and will stay again for sure!!!

    LOCATION, PARKING, WIFI

    Firstly, BABA House is accessible from anywhere, the tourist attractions, night market and restaurants. All within walking distance. For the price we paid is totally worth it. There are also free parking, however limited space, so you got to be early to have the good parking slot. Rooms are clean and spacious, wifi was down on the day when I arrived. And its fixed in the evening and we are lucky to get rooms that are newly furnish and is near the wifi router. Breakfast is simple and can be improvised.

    Charming and Quaint”

    Location, old world ambiance, helpful staff

    We purposely chose the Baba House Hotel because we wanted to stay in a local old home that had been converted to a hotel. The hotel has so much history and character. One got some feeling of how it was 100 years ago. It had enough modern amenities--AC, hot water in the bathroom but unfortunately, our old TV did not work. The latter was not a big deal as we did not go to Malacca to watch TV. There were other interesting things to do, to see, to eat. The hotel was a 2-minute walk to the weekend night market so that was a lot of fun too. During the day, we filled our time going to the nearby museums, churches, etc.
