We had a really wonderful time at tiny knock knock in our 3 days in Malacca. It was the first time that we had stayed in a shop house and the experience was amazing. The first floor contained many vintage antique pieces from the 70s/80s, including a typewriter and radio. We loved that the place was retro-themed; it even boasted...

If only Knocknock Home had remained open, I wouldn't need to look for other accommodations in my future trips to Malacca. The place was close to perfect really. The pretty decor, thoughtful details, thorough cleanliness and the great location has definitely set the bar (and makes it difficult to beat) for those looking to stay at a traditional shophouse type...
