Very friendly and helpful staff from my initial internet booking and throughout our stay. I arrived a bit early so ordered chicken pongteh for lunch. This dish has to be cooked slowly to make sure the gravy soaks completely into the potatoes, at which point the chicken should be done too. It was done perfectly in a pleasant aromatic sauce....

Dear Mr. Siddle, Thank you for your kind review of our guesthouse and restaurant. We are pleased that you like our pongteh dish. Please try our asam fish and chicken rendang when you dine here next. The window shutter can actually be closed, there is a 'technique' to it. Being an old heritage building, there are certain 'characteristics' to the...

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful place very much, the service was excellent and the room just amazing! After kind of backpacker travelling through Malaysia before we were really pampered by the beautiful room in the very center of old Malaka and extended our stay up to 5 days. Thank you Ilias for making our stay so unforgettable.

We decided to book the hotel only because of the number of positive reviews the hotel had. At first we were a bit surprised and disappointed as the prices on their website are lower to what you actually have to pay. Our room was a decent size, clean (except for the lamp which was crying for some dusting!). The bed...

Extremely peaceful, excellent location, reasonable prices. We stayed longer than we planned because of so cozy, beautiful and enjoyable atmosphere. Eight nights with a lot seeing and doing - heritage city center, bicycling, jogging, golfing, etc. Huge plus for so kind staff.

I visited Melaka in late October 2015. On one of my nights there, I was attracted by this building due to its remarkable facade; it reminded me of Amsterdam, and so I paused to peruse the menu. A man inside noticed me, and upon hearing of my love of architecture, immediately invited me to come and see the dining room....
