Cafe 1511 Guesthouse

A Peranakan bargain for the over 30s

What we say: 4.5 stars

Next to the ancestral house that is now the Baba Nyonya Museum, this was originally the servants' quarters. Today, it's an intimate guesthouse with six guestrooms named after Peranakan specialties like laksa and pai tee. The building retains its original layout, which means that each room is unique and the bathrooms are shared. Some modern additions have been made, including air-con, hot water heater for the shower, a TV lounge and free WiFi. The already very reasonable rates also include breakfast at Cafe 1511, with your choice of Western or Malaysian food. Perhaps to prove that they are not a hostel, Cafe 1511 does not accept guests under the age of 30. Sorry, kids!
