Nice location and authentic old peranakan house. Walking distance to most attractions and lots to see, do and buy around it. Parking is available but a short walking distance away. Basic facilties, good breakfast.

Pros: cheap, nice location, parking available. Cons: small room, dusty, stains in the bathroom tiles, old furniture, old big tv with very few channels, air conditioning leaks then stopped working, pathetic breakfast, a reception that hardly smiles.

This is actually a very nice hotel. Its hotel decoration is typically of the nonya heritage and the location is perfect. Only thing here is their rooms and furniture should be upgraded. They are abit too old and they are still using those big box TV sets with limited TV programmes in their superior rooms (most have no windows except...

This hotel is in a great location, near Jonker Street, near museums, near some really good restaurants. And it is inexpensive. The only thing I didn't like was there were no windows in the room...I felt claustrophobic and wondered how I would exit if the door was barred. Some rooms do have windows but we were on a budget. Parking...

My friend and I stayed here over a weekend trip from Singapore. The hotel location could not be any better, in the centre of the old town and a stones throw from Jonker Street. We booked a twin room and although it didn't have a window we were still very happy. The room was neat and clean and had everything...

Stayed for 3D2N and was pleasantly surprised to get a room upgrade to Heritage King room. Hotel is conveniently located besides Jonker Street, so night market & food searching were just within 5 minutes walking distance. Room was spacious, bright and clean. Really enjoyed my stay.

Peranakan Culture themed hotel perfectly situated in the midst of malacca central. We had a blast strutting around Melaka and Jonker street then taking retreat after in this museum like hotel was a superb combination. A must try for malacca travelers. Only needs improvement on their breakfast menu, food choices were dull and cold.

Right in the middle of the old town. The room was pretty big and clean. There's room without windows. We choose with window. Our room was on the back, has huge balcony over looking the parking lot. Nice to sit outside when the sun is down. Breakfast was lame on weekdays, bread, fried eggs and jam. Weekend has more variety....
