Apa Kaba Home & Stay Melaka Malaysia Review

The Apa Kaba guesthouse in Melaka/Malacca, Malaysia is a lovely guest house. Its an old fashioned teak building in a beautiful garden a few minutes walk from most of Melaka's main attractions.

They have both air-conditioned and non air-conditioned rooms. We spent three nights without air-conditioning and I don't think we'll be doing that again anytime soon. Being hot and sweaty 24 hours a day is incredibly tiring plus there isn't enough mosquito repellent in the world if you're going to sleep wearing as little as possible in a building with no glass or fly wire in the windows.

There is also a choice of using the common bathrooms Vs having your own bathroom. Your own bathroom is nice to have. You'll appreciate it when you have to stagger, half asleep, to the toilet at 4am. The common facilities were ok however. A little worn. They had character.

We certainly enjoyed our time at Apa Kaba. It's a lovely building, a great location and the hosts were friendly and even provided a free walking tour. I'm not sure if that's something you can necessarily count on happening if you stay there but it was a great introduction to Melaka. The room cost a little more than we like to pay, which is why we only stayed a few nights, however it was a nice experience and got us off on the right food in Melaka.
