The hotel is centrally located in Jonker (but made parking almost impossible). I stayed in the the room with the attic that could fit 6 pax comfortably. The room is very basic, clean beds with firm mattresses. There's no closet, just a coat hanger stand. Bathroom is poor...water from shower didn't drain properly, and it wasn't tiled. The staff was...

We stayed from April 15-17. We arrived very late (close to midnight) but the night shift staff patiently waited up for us. The place itself is not prominent as it is kept locked behind metal folding doors like a shop front. At first, we were sceptical but once we entered the premises, we found the interior surprisingly pleasant. The whole...

I stayed in Garden 1, shortly after the hotel had opened. The room was spacious with excellent ensuite facilities. Despite it being the weekend, it was so peaceful..... hard to believe it was just 2 streets away from the bustle of Jonker Street! The staff are all very helpful and friendly - love the street map provided. Will definitely be...

We staying at Mori 3 and it was clean but there is a strange smell when we firstly stepped in to the room. The environment is quiet but the location is good for travellers as it located beside Jonker Street and most of the POI in Malacca. Recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fully restored since July 2015, Mori Residence is a boutique guesthouse combined with tea house hidden on a quiet street of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Malacca, namely Jalan Kampung Kuli. The many residents living along the street today are of sentimental value, constituting a very interesting neighborhood. “Mori” refers to the woods in Japanese, also translated as forest. The dominant element in the boutique guesthouse and tea house is wood to match its modern and heritage design. It has a total of five fully air-conditioned rooms, one of which has an attic as its distinctive feature. Each room comes with a private bathroom. The tea house on the ground floor is perfect for chilling over a cuppa in a comfortable environment. Our guests are also entitled for a session of free tea ceremony (during specific days and times only). The boutique guesthouse and tea house is only two-minute walk to Jonker Street (night market). It is located in close proximity to the major tourist attractions and famous eateries in Malacca, making it an ideal place for your family and friends to fully experience what the heritage city has to offer. FACILITIES • Air-conditioned room • Private bathroom with hot and cold shower • Complimentary in-room WiFi • Hairdryer upon request • Towels • Coffee, tea, biscuits, and alkaline water all day long (self-service) at shared pantry • Refrigerator and basic dishware at shared pantry • Cozy and spacious common area with sofas, rattan chairs and beanbags for relaxation • Garden with water features • Washing machine (surcharge apply, at Layang Layang Guest House) • Bicycles for rent (at Layang Layang Guest House) • Strategic location; 2-minute walk to Hard Rock Cafe and Jonker Street • We can help you to purchase ticket(s) and/or book taxi(s) for your next destination (prices and conditions depend on our agent) ... more   less
