Interaction with guests

The neighborhood

Right in the middle of the core heritage zone of this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Getting around

Most places are within walking distance. Panorama bus no. 17 from the Melaka Sentral bus station stops at the Red Dutch Square and from there it's about 5 minutes walk to our place.

Other things to note

Please note that we do not have parking for guests. Parking can sometimes be difficult on Friday, weekends and holidays. There are a number of parking spots along our street and surrounding street which you need to pay using coupons which you can buy from us (leave someone in the car while you get the coupons, as the parking inspector comes to check quite regularly). Otherwise there are a couple of privately-run car parks within walking distance which you pay to the attendant. Please park responsibly.

There may be a stray cat (but clean) or two coming into the house during the day, but they will not stay in during the night.

We also have other rooms:
Queen Bed Room with a queen-sized bed:
Twin Room with 2 single beds:
Family suite which accommodates 4:
Quiet Duplex which accommodates 3:
