          New,cosy and clean accommodation(air- con & fan) at a very good location by the river (Jonker,red house)thus walking distance to many tourist attractions and famous food.Bus 17 will fetch u here from Melaka Bus central.Can choose rooms(towels provided) with attached bathroom or shared bathrooms-rest assured though shared, the bathrooms are spacious and clean(shower gel provided) compared to other guesthse I stayed previously at the same rate.Owners are generous and you are free to help urselves with free coffee/tea.Hot/cold water dispenser,fridge (put your own canned drink/fruits), iron(upon request).Relax oneself on the sofa at the spacious balcony and enjoy the scene of building and ferry by pass you.Owners Tan and Asri are very helpful , friendly towards their guests.Jantzen (manager) provide excellent customer service.These 3 awesome guys are patient and live makan sutra, thumbup service rendered.Ah siong being the cleaner with his colgate smile will make you feel comfortable too.This residence is near to hardrock cafe which is expected to open in dec 2012(informed by their staff) so can expect western cruisine. My stays 13/6 till 17/6/2012 with this residence are worthwhile and will be back. Thanks guys for your awesome services.

          Being new , there are still rooms for improvement as mentioned by the owners.They have intention to have bicycles and famous food location map in the near future for their customers. For car owners may consider to park at the open car park beside the church (opposite River Song residence) as the parking lots infront the residence are limited.

          traditional Baba house yet modernised, central location, friendly owner

          cheap carpet in front of bathroom doesn't absorb water raised criss-cross platform (wood/bamboo/plastic) inside bathroom would make it more comfortable

          The boss(Tan) and staff (Ah Xiong) are very friendly. Boss recommended nice food around the hotel. I especially like the balcony's view. I feel very comfortable staying here.

          Generally very satisfy with the stay except my room's(B9) door very tight. (have to pull harder to close)

          Practically, I like everything about this property. The people running it simply friendly with great attitude. Had nice long chat with the owner, Jayden Tan, about business, the area, etc. The balcony overlooking the river is perfect. We sat there for hours. Very clean. Can't ask for better location. Will absolutely coming back if we come back down to Melaka.

          It is more about suggestion than 'didnt like'. It'd be nice to have some light afternoon snacks/morning breakfast as complimentary at the balcony. Not a full breakfast, but just thought there are so many delicious food/snacks in Malaka and it'd be nice for guests to get sample of that. Very minor suggestion is the bathroom mat. It doesn't absorb water very well and stays damp.

          It is located right beside the river, so we can see the river as our back yard view. It is a chinese old building but it is so clean and nicely designed and decorated. It is very closed to Jonker street, and we can find many local food around.

          5.0

          Clearly a new facility and very clean. The owners/staff are very friendly. It also has a great location and nice view of river from back patio and upstairs deck.

          First, the room is tiny and there is literally no furniture. There is bed and nightstand. Clothes, bags, and everything else must go on floor as there is no furniture. Kind of ridiculous but since rooms are so small there is no room for furniture Second, the walls are so thin that you can hear people stomping around and walking up/down in the early morning and late evening. I was not able to sleep at all in this hotel. Kids running up the stairs sounds like an earthquake and you can hear people taking in hallway. Zero sound insulation, it is like conversation is happening in your room. Third, no window in room. It is basically a closet. In summary, despite a nicely refurbished historical building in central tourist area of Malacca, the price is just too high for this building. It is budget quality for premium price. For a tiny bit more you can get a decent hotel nearby or for half the price get same quality at one of the dozen of quaint family hotels in old Malacca.

          This hotel is a converted old Dutch house, very recently renovated to a very good standard. My double room was large, with a typical combined shower/toilet & tastefully tiled in modern colours. The bed was comfortable, bedding & towels were fresh & clean.Rooms had both fans & aircon but no TV or phones.A large TV was located in the entrance foyer along with the water feature & fish pond ( a very attractive area).Decor was very appealing with artistic pieces placed throughout the hotel.A well equipped, scrupulously clean pantry was located at the rear, looking out onto the Melaka River.This was fan cooled & contained a fridge, cold water dispenser, tea/coffee facilities with cutlery & crockery. Free WIFI was available & functioned well.Tan & Edmond were very gracious hosts, making my stay a very pleasant one..thanks guys:-)

          Excellent location, just half minute walking to Jonker Str, and less than 2 mins walking to the famous red house. The hotel has the service of bike renting, 10RM/day, with a bike all the attractions can be explored within one day. The staff are very very patient, friendly and helpful, they will arrange everything to meet your requirements. Melaka River is at the back of the hotel, you can just sit there eating, drinking, relaxing, with beautiful scenery around you.

          The location is excellent. It is by the River and very near to Jonker Street. From the back door of the hotel, one could take a quiet walk to Jonker Street or cross the river to St Paul's Hill. At night, one could sit at one of the small eating places by the river for a meal or drinks. There is also a communal kitchen at the back of hotel, where there is hot and cold water, a refrigerator for guests. On the second floor (which is carpeted and no shoes are allowed), there is a balcony with a cosy sitting area, which is perfect for a quiet chill out in the evening.

          This is a minor point. There is a water feature in the hall which has water flowing all day and night. I could hear the sound from my room on the first floor. It is not exactly disturbing, if one considers it as the sound of rain. There are no windows in some of the rooms.
