Backpacking Melaka? River View Guest House - The Best Deal In Town!

The last time I was in Melaka was in 2005 and it was a few days before I enter Marcus Evans, and a few days after I recovered from dengue fever. Yes, I did get the fever but it was not strong enough to get me entitled for "hospitalized" status. I was back then a guest at a friend's house, Adel. Since back then I did not know much about Melaka, I thought it was a good idea that I get myself a reliable tour guide. (Back then wikipedia was not an IN thing *kobek*) I spent 3 days with Adel's family and that gave me a rough idea on how to go out and about inside Melaka town.

And so, a few months ago Lily and I decided that we make a quick trip down to Melaka. we spend some time reading and Google-ing around for cheap and reliable accommodations around Melaka and we finally bump onto, River View Guest House. We read a lot of good reviews on the place and since the place is basically within walking distance to most of the places of interests in Melaka, we decided to call them up for a booking.

River View Guest House is located at Jalan Kampong Pantai, which is the traditional commercial centre within the UNESCO World Heritage zone in the old part of Chinatown. It is within a few minutes walk away from Jonker's Street, The red Square and a few other interesting places.

Upon reaching Melaka Sentral, we took a bus ride to town. Our route was getting around bus number 17, which is going to town and Ujong Pasir (if I'm not mistaken). We stopped by The Red Square and continue our journey to the guest house. We walked along Lorong Hang Jebat which is just before the gate of Jonker's Street, by your right side if you're coming from The Red Square. At the end of that alley, you'll find a coffee shop called Sin Yin Hoe, turn left and just walk straight towards the end of the road, you'll find the guest house on your right.

Well, I actually have to call them up for directions. Not that I am really fermilliar with the place.

The host, Mani and Raymond - I must say, you guys are the best. I mean it. Both of them were very friendly and helpful. To my surprise, they told me that the guest house had been up and running only for about six months old. Judging by the reviews I read online I thought that this place have been there for quite a while.

The guest house offers accommodation in comfortable twin(6'x4') or double(6'x6') bedded rooms with fan and common bathrooms (hot & cold shower) for up to 14 guests. All rooms have windows.Bath towels are provided for guest use. There is a sitting, TV and dining area with a kitchen for light cooking. Coffee / tea and drinking water is provided complimentary. The first floor terrace has a magnificent view of the Melaka River snaking majestically through traditional Melaka shop-houses and homes ; thus the name of the guest house. You could sit here in the evening, drink beer and watch the boats go by or just take a walk along the river, which is brightly and beautifully lighted at night. This is true local living.

It was full house when we reached. I guess travelers from all over the world have come to know about this place then, which is good. The merrier the better.

The room rates are as follows :

For an air-cond room, RM 60 per night and for non air-cond room RM 45 per night.

We actually paid for a three days stay at the guest house.

We really loved our stay at the guest house. The place is peaceful and even if there's a lot to see just around the corner it was really hard to leave in the morning! We definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit this beautiful city and have an excellent stay.

Hey Hey! I stayed at this guest house before!! that was back in.. 2007 I think ;)

Wait.. I read there you said this guest house had been up and running only up for 6 months? Hmm.. Pretty sure that's the place I went to with Chun Pang, Eng Guan, CM and friends... lol! lol! Remember the 'black' theme. Or there are other guest houses.. with similar style.. haha!

Bongkersz : They just bought the place. It was an empty almost rundown building before this. There are a few other guest house along the road. I think it was a different one. This one is new. :p By the way, the shophouses in that area are all of the same design ..

Are the prices valid for single or double room?
