Enjoyed a two night stay at the Heeren House which is in a convenient location on the river and steps from Jonker St nightmarket and the food, bars and sights of the old town. Most things worth seeing in Melaka are in easy walking distance of this guesthouse. The guesthouse owners are friendly, helpful and cook up a great breakfast...

We stayed in a river view double with en-suite, which was a good size and quiet. The two hosts were very friendly and served an excellent, simple breakfast. Good value for a budget/mid range guest house.

We had Heeren House recommended to us by a friend that used to live in Melaka and have not been disappointed. It is a small guesthouse with 6 rooms. The room we had was upstairs and looked out over the river. It is located within the main tourist area and next to Jonker Walk so everything is on the doorstep....

We stayed only one night in Melaka, having caught the sleeper train from Penang (or more accurately Bukit Mertajam station) to Tampin and then the taxi (RM 60) from Tampin to Melaka. Despite arriving at 0800, it was no problem for us to leave our bags at the guest house until our room was ready at 1230. It is perfectly...

As we broke our stay up in Melaka to stay in two different places, there's always that time in between check out and check in which you dread lugging your bags/backpacks around. Liz at Heeren House minded our bags until our room was ready which was a welcome relief in the heat and hustle bustle of Melaka. The guesthouse is...

After two years I was abck in Melaka - this time for a conference. I did stay in two other properties - both more expensive. But for personal service and a home away from home feel, Heeren House tops the list. If you want 5* poshness and pool, this is not for you. If you want character, personal attention and...

Heeren House is one of the best places my wife and I stayed during our travels through S.E. Asia. The location is perfect - right along the waterfront and a short walk to all the great places including Jonker Street. The house is at least 100 years old and has plenty of character. And the breakfast in phenomenal. Other guest...

I loved Heeren House. I chose it because of the tripadvisor reviews, and it was ALMOST perfect. The location could not have been better. All of irresistible Melaka is just a stroll away. The room was sweet, and complete; I have no idea if the TV worked, as we had better things to do. Our hosts were forthcoming, although not...

We were in the downstairs room at the back of the house which was pretty unremarkable, with a small one person at a time bathroom. Maybe the upper floor rooms have more character? Liz and Bernard were helpful hosts and the simple breakfast cooked fresh to order and served in the nice surroundings of the cafe/shop.

My parents in their late 60's were totally charmed, as were we. The location doesn't get any better, and the store in the front has some lovely hand-picked items.
