This hotel is affordable and serviceable. It's in a great location, just right around the corner from Jonkers and everything else you want to see. I think I paid $50USD for our room, and that was with very little notice. We had a king bed, a great aircon, a hot shower, and no windows, which made the room nice for...

One thing I must say that is good about this hotel is it's walking distance-location to Jonker Street, Red Fort & Pahlawan Mall. This hotel has parking at the back but parking area is small and can only fit 10-12 cars comfortably. We chose room 141 which has no windows facing outside but a window in the bathroom facing into...

I spent here one night only, first I booked a room without windows-didnt know the lowest category was without windows-, so paid the difference and got a room without window. I dont like to use the AC and he was very fine in the night. I liked my stay here, in the very historical part of Melaka city, but night...

The Baba House was actually the only hotel that had a couple more rooms still available as we went during peak time on a weekend. We were lucky to have got them. The hotel provides a comfortable and clean place to stay and will satisfy those looking for decent accommodation at affordable rates. It's easy access (a 5 minute walk...

Small and nice. Affordable and accessible. We booked online. Drove over. Parked. Checked in. Busy place. But smooth. Dropped the bags and sauntered to Jonker Street, a stone's throw away. Easy. In the hotel, spend time marvelling at the baba decor details. Not the most exquisite. But delightful nonetheless.

Old and traditional you may say. It is a living museum on its own but that wouldnt change my mind on staying here another night. If you are a person that are afraid of ghosts and is highly superstitous this isnt the place you would want to rest your head at. Other than that the space is very tiny and...
