We stayed a week here, the residence is confortable and clean. You have a kitchen if you want to cook and free tea and coffee all the time. The owner, khoo, he is nice, friendly and helpful man. We loved to stay there because is quiet and peaceful, the lounge on the first floor invite you to relaxing.

We found Melaka to be such a lovely lovely place, made more memorable by our stay at River one residence with our gracious host, Mr. Cool himself.😉 (Not his real name for sure). The place was along the river and near jonker street. We enjoyed the unlimited biscuits offered. It was really delicious. The shared bath and toilets were clean...

This place is in an amazing location with a stunning view of the Melaka river. It's airy, breezy, and you wake up to the sound of Call to Prayer and the ringing of the distant bell tower. The hosts are very friendly and make you feel quite at home. The space is unique as well, with rooms mostly being on...

The place is in a good location within easy walk to most attractions within the heritage areas of Melaka. Have a view of Melaka river on the first floor but would have been even better if ground floor is done so that guests can have a seating area outside fronting the river. Place general clean and well kept. Bedsheet and...

I just had a 3D2N holiday with my son in Malacca. We have always stayed in 3 or 4 Stars hotels when we travel. We thought we'd go backpacking and try a no frills boutique hotel this time, just for the experience. We chose River One Residence for its location - along the Malacca River and close to Jonker Street....

I like the fact that its along a row of shophouses that continue to operate for locals. Nearby is a kopitiam too. Walking distance is the main street with many of Malacca's important heritage buildings. Moreover, it is clean and safe.

Clean and comfortable. Home feeling. The tauke is so friendly. Suggestion for friends and family but not for couple cause the sound proofing of the room is not satisfaction. The living area of second floor is so comfortable at night but have mosquitos, should make some precautions.

Really good location in centre of town. The hostel is clean, as were the shared bathrooms. The staff were friendly, but perhaps not too useful with buses, directions etc. Cute little kitchen with coffee, tea, and biscuits. Main issues: the room was windowless, the walls thin, the floor boards very loud, and the wifi absolutely useless.

We stayed for two nights. Guesthouse is in the heart of Melacca. A queen size bed, a table and a mirror inside the room. That's it, really basic and simple. Shared bathroom. We stayed at downstairs, so have to go up to upstairs if you wish to see the view. Or just request a room upstairs. There is a very...

The guesthouse is well located close to Dutch Square and Jonker St. Our room was authentic, simple and adequate sized. It contained only a bed and a table. There was aircon and a fan. Towels and coffee sachets were provided. There was only one power point. The walls are thin so corridor and other rooms can be heard in your...
