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...

Enjoyed my stay at Old Town Guesthouse in Melaka. In very good location, 5 minutes walk from the town square and Jonkor Street. Across the road is a Malay style food hall, next door is delicious BBQ shop, Tandoor, and a nice bar. Rooms are small and windowless but this is standard in Malaysia. Honesty system bar and nice living...

Based on good reviews in Tripadvisor, we stayed at Old Town GH for 2 nights. At RM55 for triple sharing A/C room with breakfast, we could not ask for more. Run by a family with 2 lovely young children, the place is clean and comfortable. Nearby, there are many eateries. It is opposite Restoran Dung Fong where you can find...

If you are backpacking in Malaysia and hitting Melaka, you should definitely stay at this guest house. It is run by a young international family and it's really nice, clean, cheap and comfortable. If you are up for party, this is not the right place for you though. A simple breakfast (toast, coffee, milk, tea, fresh fruits, butter, jam) is...

We stayed 3 weeks in this ideal guesthouse. We loved everything : it's very cheap, very clean, very homely ... We were very pleased with the location as well. Not in the (over) touristy Chinatown but where locals live and go out for food, yet just a 5/10 min to the action. But what made us stay that long is...

We stayed at the guest house on two separate occasions in May and found the place to be fantastic value. It is very clean, with a nice spacious living area that everyone can relax in. The owners live at the guesthouse as well, and this helps give it a very calm atmosphere at all times of the day. The rooms...
