Thoughtful spot by the river
With just six rooms all overlooking the river, the Heeren House makes for a memorable stay in Melaka.
Each room has been thoughtfully decorated with Peranakan antiques and colonial furniture like canopied beds — though unfortunately they're not always that comfortable for sleeping. Room rates vary slightly depending on the view, but all have air-con, TV and attached bathroom with hot shower. This is one of the few heritage guesthouses with a family room. Since Heeren House is so small, you'll quickly get to know the staff who provide personalised service and will cook you a full English breakfast in the morning. Rates include breakfast and taxes.
