I had stayed here a few times in the past, it is a little different now having not visited in a few years. The room is big and clean, but there is a bit of a problem with the plumbing as it is an old hotel. Request for a room where you can flush tissues down. It is a little...

I just walked into this place when I was touring around Malacca by car. Undoubtedly the best thing about this place is the location! the car-park was within easy walking distance (2 minutes by my small feet) and the river is so close, you could almost jump into the river from the windows... almost. the second best thing was the...

Liked the place and friendly guys working there. Shower was close to cold but that's not a big trouble considering the heat outside. Nice view over the canal. They where so friendly to help me with a cable to spice up my phone after a day of wondering around.

I found this perfectly located guest house in the old part of town just next to the historical Melaka river where rich families and notables of Melaka lived. I was welcomed by attenative receptionist in a nicely decorated lobby which also serves as a restaurant. The interior is very interesting with rustic furniture in colonial and Peranakan style and historical...

Heeren House is a great place to stay in Melaka. It's an old house by the river that gives the feel and ambiance of cultural warmth. It's very cozy and homey with rooms that gives a great view of the river and the Melakan community. You wake up to the sound of hawks by the river every morning with a...

Not sure why nobody mentioned this but this guesthouse is at the noisiest part of town, you have these trishaw guys cycling by and having their music on full blast. You can also easily hear the band from the next pub. Opposite are some big trees with thousands of birds noisy throughout the night and right in front of the...

Really good position overlooking the river and away from the noisiest part of town. The staff were charming and helpful. They also cooked some really nice dinners for us we had some fun with the staff while we were staying and would really recommend Heeren House

We had a wonderful 5 day stay at Heeren House. Don't expect a 5-star hotel (the building is 200 years old after all) but the character and ambience of this place, and the friendliness of the staff and the tasty food more than make up for it. All the staff were great. When Selen found out it was our son's...

The food was mainstream but the price really ridiculous for a small piece of fish. We were served in a plastic plate. No napkins as well. A tipic turistic trap.. a shamed. Do not go there. NO GO RESTAURANT.

Hi Alexandru B, We at Heeren House serve local Peranakan or Baba Nyonya cuisine. Your friend and you walked into our restaurant at about 11.10pm when our kitchen was already closed and most of the other restaurants in the area were closed too. However, we opened our kitchen for your very late order and your friend said that he doesn't...

To be perfectly honest, I've always stayed at new modern hotels on my travels so booking an old guest house that's built by the Dutch more than 200 years ago is a novel experience. When I arrived, I was struck by the quaintness of Heeren House and its antique furnishings which reminded me of my grandma's house that I grew...
