We stayed 3 weeks over there. It's such a lovely guesthouse. It's very clean and for the price it's still. It's a bit outside the action, but still not too far: 5 min walk to the riverside. We are vegetarian, and it was the right choice. It's surrounded by 2 indian restaurants and across the street there's a chinese food...

If you're looking for a clean and friendly guest house in Melaka - this is it! I've never seen anyone mop the floors as often as here. Apparently they even repaint the rooms every 6 months. And it's easy to like the spacious common rooms... The location is a bit off, but it's still great value for money : )

We stayed at the Old Town Guesthouse for 3 nights with our baby and highly rate this place. The owners were away on holiday, but the couple that were looking after it were very friendly and kindly helped keep our baby entertained. The rooms are simple, but clean, but it's the large communal space that makes this establishment stand out....

Value for money while I staying there for relaxation with my family and kids. The best thing is the guesthouse area is not too noise. It is a home based type where you can use all the area (2 Living Room Areas, Kitchen, Dinning area, 6 Separate washrooms and other like internet, Free coffee/Tea and bread :)) share with other...

A wonderful home stay experience – Loved it! The guesthouse has a very nice feel to it and you would instantly feel it the moment you walk in the door, it is very spacious, bright, airy, and spotlessly clean. It is run by a lovely couple who would really go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant...

Spent 2 nights here in early August - made a reservation a week in advance for a double room with shared bathroom. Room was clean although the bedsheets were slightly old and dusty. I am allergic to dust mites so this was a bit of a problem for me - but by and large everything was pleasant. The guesthouse was...

This place is new and very very clean. For as little as 55 RM per night me and my partner stayed in a very comfortable ensuite room, with both aircondition and fan (we used the a/c at night and slept great), a great breakfast included, the best we've had in Malaysia, that apart included a wide selection of marmelades, fresh...

I stayed in a twin room with a friend of mine for 4 nights and it was hard to leave the place as the owners were so nice, helpful and welcoming. The place itself is impeccably clean. I would go so far as to say it was the cleanest place I had stayed in my entire 7 month trip across...
