Coffee & tea facilties
The city of Melaka, founded around the year 1400, is considered to be the founding city of modern Malaysia. Being strategically located along major shipping routes, the city prospered during the reign of the Melaka Sultanate. It was later conquered by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. A melting pot of various cultures and traditions, its uniqueness was duly recognised when it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage City together with the city of Georgetown in Penang in 2008.

Fantastic location right between Jonker street and A famosa the two iconic Must Go in malacca. Wei Yi even advice us on the parking and help us with finding parking shot. Very safe area with lots of local cafes and even Hard Rock cafe just short walk away. Hard Rock cafe is a great place to relax with its evening live band (ideal for weekday night where there is no night market). The famous chicken rice ball is right beside Hard Rock Cafe which is a awesome brunch location. Jonker Market operates on friday and saturday night. Capitol Satay is also just 8mins walk away.
The place was a steal with its canal view and it even has a swing in its lobby to chill in. Toilets seems newly renovated and was pretty cleaned.
I will definitely come back again :)
Wei Yi's mom is such a nice lady. She is always there. In fact the family is always there to help. Me and my friend rented few bicycles and cycle around town. Aunty is always sitting at the front desk ready to help with all the direction. Was very accommodating. The room that I took has a stunning view of the river and the church. Room is very clean and have got what we need. The location is also super convenient. Is like 2mins walk from Jonker St and few more mins walk to many other attraction. Highly recommend this place !
The location is fantastic, just a short walk to jonker street. We found the place very easily with clear directions from the host. The place is lovely, and the room is very very big. The hosts are very welcoming and always ready with wonderful dining recommendations. All in all, we have a great time and would definitely be back again.
The Wayfarer folks are very friendly and welcoming people! The room is clean, tidy and the facilities are adequate. Would definitely come back for the next Malacca trip. Thanks for the good stay!
The room is bright and spacious with balcony overlooking the river. The king bed is very comfortable and the shower has great water pressure. Wifi is very fast too. We love the location in the old town. Jonker street and everything else are just minutes away. However if you are driving, finding car park can be a challenge. We stayed during the weekend, the opposite public car park was full all the time. We were lucky enough to get street parking after circling a few rounds.
It was a pleasant stay at Wei Yi's guesthouse, the room is spacious and clean. The view from the balcony was awesome as you can see the church, boats and some happening events just across the river. They have comfy living area and coffee chiling area at the ground floor with a big TV for your relaxing. Everything is perfect and wonderful except for the noise from the upper floor/room when people walking and you can just hear it clearly. Secondly is the lack of the carpark space, its costly when you have to park your car at the basement/ open car park. Otherwise, overall I will rate 100% for the strategic location, great people in the house, clean and neat stay. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.
