Cosy little guesthouse ”

Comfy beds, cool rooms, 3 minute walk from Jonker

karen at the jiong house was friendly and non-fussy! loved the place with its small but comfy room. despite being fan only, the rooms were not hot at all as it's well-ventilated with cool air from another airconditioned room. the malacca river is right outside the back door and parking is not a problem at night. jonker is a very short walk away and there's plenty to eat, see and do there on weekends.

the jiong guest house's location is really the best you can have! you can walk right out to the melaka river and famous tourist attraction jongkle street and a famosa melaka itself, where you would be spending most of your time at anyway. this is a budget guest house, so don't expect anything at all about the room. room cleanliness need some improvement. it was worth the very little money rm 35 that i paid on 31 dec 2012 & 1 jan 2013! thanks to agoda!

Good location, budget”

Good location, clean, friendly staff.

It was a nice trip to Melaka. I did enjoy staying at Jiong guesthouse. It's a very good location for tourist to discorver the surroundings of this historic town, just some steps to enter China town night market. And a few minutes walk to many other tourits attractions. The speacial thing for me is that there is a river walk side along the river behind the Jiong guesthouse. The only thing I would complain is there was a big family staying at the same time making so much noise (two or three children), even it was mid-night. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Good and convenient.”

Overall is average to good. I stayed on the 2nd floor river view room with a/c. I like the view. Bathroom is at G & 1st floor. This is an old house so facilities are basic and old but clean. Staircase is quite steep for older people. My bicycle is allowed to park inside the house's common area which is peace of mind.

Recommanded

i arrived here in the evening and been told that hotel was full. i was very angry as i have reserved the room few months ago, most important, i've fully paid! then they transferred me to another motel which then claimed they have prepared for me, at motel sayang sayang. so i stayed in motel for my 2 nights. motel was very nice, clean and quiet. one thing need to improve is, agoda should pass our contact to hotel so hotel can inform us earlier if there is any changes regarding the reservation. overall, i enjoyed the days in melaka! the motel is highly recommanded!

Very nice place to introduce friends and families to come here to stay. I had my river view room, very satisfied of that. It's a very great view. And i like the handmade stuffs here, which I heard from the owner that they try to organize this kind of fair there and they sell many handmade stuff which I find very valuable. Place is logistic, just that a bit further from the Jonker street. However, the environment is peaceful and relax~ Thanks!

near to most attractions but yet can enjoy the quiet side in melacca

It is two streets away from Jonker street, with their own map to guide you the shortcut to Jonker street; quiet during weekend since most old shops are rest on weekend, that was good to enjoy quiet moment; old shops in melacca so they retained the original look of the shop; small room but doesnt matter since you wont stay there long, in fact I stayed one night and slept well; good walking along the riverside and they even paint the wall and it is good! Nice chatting with guesthouse staff and sharing about the traveling experience; overall, it is good for me!
