It's worth spending more time here as I like the decoration and the service. With the host warm arrangement, my families were happy and having more fun. It's closed to the ' basak malam ', we went to the night market at weekend and enjoy our time. We will be back soon as we were achieved by its charming art and the kind of the host.

Room Tip: Rooms are clean n quiet at weekdays.

Cozy place to stay with either family & friends. Walking distance to tourist spots and restaurants & cafes. Cooking is available and it is very convenient for me to prepare baby food for my 10-month-old baby. Car porch is large enough to park 2 cars. Would definitely come again and recommend to my friends.

I never had the better room service than this guesthouse. The room is beautiful and all interior furniture designed. I don't even know how to describe. You try it and feel home-like. You won't be disappointed.

Three of us stayed here for two nights. Location - so close to Jonker St and all the historic sites that is was convenient to walk back to the house for an afternoon nap after a morning of sightseeing and shopping before walking out again for the evening. Facilities - cozy, clean, very homely and charming with the personalised art work by Joe and his wife Christie. Hosts - Joe and Christie are lovely and welcoming people who really make you feel at home. Joe is also a licensed heritage tour guide and really impressed us with his knowledge of Malacca's history when he gave us tour. It was supposed to be only 2 hours but it ended being 4 hours because he took time to answer every question we had. We could see he is really passionate about Malacca's history and wants to educate people about it. Do check out the couple's handmade jewelry shop a few doors away from the Loft, too. We had a very worth it, completely enjoyable stay here.

Went melaka 4 a short trip. Googled arnd n found calanthe artisan loft with very good review. It is really a nice n cozy place to stay. Very convenient especially it comes with car porch. And so near to jonker walk. But a lot of mosquitoes.... good thing is calanthe has prepared mosquitoes repellent all around the house. Room is located at upper floor which elderly may find it difficult to walk up the staircases. But overall everything is nice. Thanks!

1) Very good location. Just a minute away from Jonker and shopping and Red Square.
2) I love the parking space.
3) generous kitchen offering free hot beverage. Soft drink in the fridge are reasonable price.
4) the mosquitoes is unavoidable. It bothered me, but it didn't bother me much since Joe provides enough repellent tools and the electrical racket in the loft. Honestly, if you decide to stay in a traditional Sino-European house, it has a well space in the house.
5) last but not least. Joe is the man. He is nice, friendly, and most importantly honest.

I highly recommend this place to those who want to stay in Old Town Melaka.
