I would recommend The Stable to all my friends as a perfect romantic getaway.
The attention to details and the kindness of the host, the discreet luxury and the comfort of the premises, the atmosphere in tune with the cultural heritage of Malacca are making the Stable a "must stay" destination.
I would definitely go back to Malacca and try Eli's other properties I was able to sneak a peek at: they are all very attractive.
Eli was very hospitable and accommodating. The place was unexpectedly close to Jonker Street and there were some noise (as expected) but otherwise a pleasant place.
We really enjoyed staying at Eli's place, which is in an authentic historical area of Malacca. Eli's place was adequate for our needs and Eli was also a great host. We very much enjoyed being located close to all the major attractions of the city.
Great place! Cosy little place in the very heart of the city. Nice fusion of antique and modern.
Eli & Sharen were both fantastic hosts, so welcoming & helpful.
The Stable is a great location if you want to be immersed in the heart of Melaka. The property is very well presented & comfortable. Due to its proximity to the night market it is not quiet, we had no problem with this, but it may trouble light-sleepers.
Thanks for a great experience:)
The Stable was true to it's description. A charming and unique place in Malacca which attracted lots of tourists posing for a photo in front of the doorstep. My partner and I were pleasantly surprised by the thoughtful amenities they have provided in addition to the comfortable stay. Definitely a pleasant experience. Thank you Sharen for your kind hospitality!
it lokes like a real nice place to spend a few days in malaca, but:
- the neighbourhood is very noisy, the live music cafe opposite the narrow street makes it really impossible to sleep
- the bed is broken in the middle so you end up in the middle
Sorry but that's how it is.
