Good For Families
The Heeren Inn is perfectly located right in the heart of Chinatown. It's in a beautiful old house and the rooms are spacey and clean.
All rooms are equipped with aircon and tv. Some rooms do get a lot of street noise, so bring earplugs.
The family who runs the place is very friendly and helpful.
Look out for bed bugs
This hotel near Jonker Street is basic and seems to be an average place to stay. But beware, it has bed bugs.
I stayed there for 1 night with my wife and my mother. We had two bedrooms - numbers 207 and 208 - and all 3 of us were bitten during the night. My mothers bites were very severe and she had to go to hospital twice for injections and medicine. Now it is 5 days later and her bites are starting to reduce but they are uncomfortable and look quite shocking. I wrote about it on my blog and you can see the photos there.
Other than bed bugs (which are evil and something you must be alert to wherever you travel), this hotel is average. If you want a more memorable stay, try the Heeren Hotel or one of the many other guest houses.
Unique Quality: Good location near Jonker Street.
The bedbugs make this a no-go hotel though.
Directions: Near the river and Jonker Street (Melaka, Malaysia).
Reasonably Priced Accomodation
We stayed 2 nights. The charges are nominal and it's smack in the centre of the Historical City. The rooms are spotlessly clean with airconditioning, attached bath & hot showers. Very strongly recommended for people who want to spend some quality time together . The charges are between RM68 for a double room, to >RM100 for a family room. The couple running it are very friendly and accord this inn a very family like atmosphere.
Unique Quality: It's family run and the neighbouring parallel street is the famous Jonker Walk which comes abuzz on weekends. Everything else, including restaurants are a stone's tnrow away. The Stadhuys and teh Melaka Museum are aboutr 5mins walk. There's ample parkinng behinde the inn.The famous Chicken Ball Rice is just 5 mins walk. At the end of the block of shophouses, there's a small Nyonya Food outlet. You need to access the outlet from the back entrance. They're open from Morning till about 3pm daily I believe. I reckon they're closed on a weekday, which I belive must be a Monday. They serve excellent homemade Laksa; Tauhu & Nyonya styled fish. The Cendol is simply out of this world and not to be missed. I understand the Baba & Nyonya Heritage house is just across the road but we missed it as we learnt of this rather late on the night before our departure.
Directions: Cross the tiny bridge opposite the Stadhuys, immediate left, then right. The 1st shophouse is known as the Heeren House. The one I'm talking about is about 5-6 doors away from the Heeren House. It's known as the Heeren Inn.
