Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Très facile à trouver. Très bien situé, le centre ville est accessible à pied rapidement et chinatown est à 2mn ainsi que l'office du tourisme.
    La chambre , à l'étage, est propre et joliment décorée. Les sanitaires , propres, sont au rez-de-chaussée.
    La wifi fonctionne très bien.
    Un bémol pour la rue bruyante, mais c'est le centre ville..
    Bref´ nous le recommandons.

  • Had a magnificent stay here! It is in a great location, close to the main tourist street Jonker street, the main river and all the historical temple's, castles, mosques and museum's. Room was enormous with a large comfortable double bed with a desk to do my work on. Highly recommend staying here on a trip to Malacca!

  • The room is like in the photo and the place quite clean, but we had a problem at night to come back home because the house was closed at 10 pm. We had to call Boutel so that his house keeper could open us...and i hadnt Boutel number on my you can imagine the mess.

    Response from Lainux:

    Usually, the keeper will inform you the combination to unlock the main door. I will make sure she inform all the guest in the future.

  • Boutel Heritage House is a charming and well located place (walking distance to central area) in Melacca. Despite being lost and arriving at 1 am I had a warm welcome and help with directions. Rooms in the house are nicely appointed and equipped and borrowing a bicycle was a nice feature. The room at the back however is in my view not suited for rental. It's too basic and without AC. The price charged for rooms on Airbnb is way over what other guesthouses are charging so am afraid that value for money is not good.

I like to travel and love to stay at alternative lodging to hotel. After getting involved in this BNB project, I have become more handy. I believe in a unique experience & design. Thus, most of our places are done by me & friends. Many furnitures are done by me. I am now able to do plumbing work, electrical wiring(though I have degree in EE), carpenting & more. I enjoy all the challenges I faced. I believe in recycle, reuse & repurpose. You can see many of the things used are done this way. Also, I tried to work many of the eco friendly elements into my places. Latest project was a solar water heater, rain water & air cond water collection for toilet flushes. I hope you like my designs & effort that I put in. Do feel free to drop me a line for anything.
