The Baba House in Malacca

My bestie recommended me to stay at "The Puri Hotel" when I asked her on the accommodation in Malacca. But unfortunately, their rooms were all fully booked. Therefore, I had to look for other alternative.

Since I wanted to stay around the area, I finally chose "The Baba House" as our place to stay for a night.

The Baba House - Malacca

The Baba House had just been renovated (mainly inside their bedrooms) not long time ago. It was built in the historic building, located along Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, one block behind the famous tourist spot called Jonker Street.

There was a strong taste and flavor of the oldies Peranakan culture inside as it was decorated in mixture of ancient Chinese and Dutch style. There were old photos displayed and old furniture as well that brought you back the feeling of staying during that period of time (19th century).

It cost about S$70 per room for Heritage Deluxe Queen room and S$80 for Heritage Heeren King room, both were with no window. We found all the rooms comfortable, equipped with air-conditioner, newly renovated bathroom, Chinese oriental sink, flat-screen TV, kettle with coffee powder, hair dryer, free Wi-Fi and including breakfast for 2.

Relaxing environment

The hotel provided full body massage service too, which cost RM100 for one and half hour. My hubby, Mom, brother, and sis-in-law went for it and came back with face full of satisfaction.

At night, it was quiet and looked a bit eerie but nothing to be scared of. If you want to experience a local Peranakan feeling, this place would be a great choice to be!
