I did't really want to write this review because I really did like this place. On the whole it's very pretty too look at and has a lovely cosy feel to it, as well as a nice outdoor area to sit and chill in the evening. The morning breakfast is pretty nice, although it does cater to the sweet tooth...

Wonderful and cozy guesthouse, the staff is helpful and friendly! We arrived at half past midnight and the taxi driver could not find the place, so we called them and they came to pick us up and, despite it was 1am by then, they walked us to a little indian restaurant where we could get some dinner and they let...

Staying at Apa Kaba provides an experience of living in a old style wooden kampong (village) house among the local kampong community. Reminds me of the olden times. Responsive owner (Kenny) who answers quickly to my last minute booking. He is helpful too in explaining to us the route to town. Although room is basic, it is clean and air-conditioned,...

Linda, the owner, and her family and staff are absolutely wonderful! She told me that this was her husband's family's home for several generations, and when he inherited it, they decided to turn it in to an inn. Self-served breakfast includes both Western and Malaysian home-cooked treats, toast and jam, coffee, tea, etc. There's a stocked fridge and shared computer...

I stayed here for 2 night in early January 2017. It is located in a warren of alleyways that would be difficult to find without some prior direction - thankfully it seems fairly well known by taxi drivers, and I had no problems getting a taxi there from Sentral bus station. It is a true homestay, in a fairly old,...

Very clean homestay with super friendly host. Cheap rooms in a historic house surrounded be a quiet green gardenaway from the hectic of the town. Breakfast and WiFi is included and it's only 5-10 minutes walking from major sights, malls and regional buses. Very recommendable!

Very nice family owned hostel. Breakfast comes with different local food every day to try! It has fantastic garden place to hang out. It's in a quiet area, but still in walking distance to melakka town. Rooms were big and clean. We would stay here again.

Nice and tidy rooms and a beautiful garden. Good breakfast and cheap cold drinks. Very friendly and helpful family and staff. Ten minutes to walk to the sights of Malacca. Best price for a beautiful and cozy place like this.

A lovely little guesthouse perfect for budget travellers! The rooms whilst not being perfect are quaint, and the staff are very attentive! Breakfast is lovely and the outside garden area is also very sweet. We played chess out in the garden numerous times! Location is fantastic and there is a lovely street food place just round the corner that the...

Not our first visit, and for sure not our last one. Excellent spot to stay in Melaka and get the kampung vibes. Unique to enjoy this garden so well maintained. Every morning we enjoyed a different simple local breakfast, highly appreciated by all the guests. 5 stars.
