Beautifully restored facility with historic roots. Run by a family, as a guest you are treated as if you are one of the family.
A 15 min walk from the downtown Jonker area, it is a peaceful oasis in Melaka,
The architecture and furnishings are a treasure trove of modern antiquity ..
A simply lovely place to stay.

We stayed at the Cyclamen Cottage for 3 nights in Dec 2011. It was way way beyond my expectations. The property itself is a heritage one, with a beautiful layout and gorgoeous pieces of antique furniture. IN fact a lot of the furniture pieces we saw were actually similar to the ones displayed at the museum, only here we were actually using it. The rooms are beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. IN terms of cleanliness, hygiene and overall upkeep the place matches up to any 5 star hotel. The hosts are warm and lovely people. We spent a lot of time chatting with them. The breakfast spread is very good and wholesome, Special mention for the homemade kaya and steamed Malay sweets that one can never try in restaurants. They don't serve meals but there is a great hawker centre just across the road and we had a lot of meals there. It was cheap, clean and tasty. The only negative of the Cyclamen Cottage is the distance. Its quite far from the main attractiions and tourist areas of Malacca, which means you always need a taxi to go anywhere. But then this distance also makes this is a quiet and peaceful place. My little 2 yr old son loved the fishes in the little water pond and we loved watching it rain while sipping our coffee. If I ever go back to Malacca, this is where I will be staying. Thanks Wendy and Chris for an amazing holiday..

I found this place through internet and read all the reviews on tripadvisor.... and my final comment is: absolutely amazing place to stay in Melaka.
Owners area very helpful. There are 2 girls doing the work... they do not speak english but somehow we managed to communicate. Just great experience to have.
The cottage is about 5-10 min drive from Melaka´s Chinatown. Approximately MYR 15 (one way)... The Cottage is located close to one of the main roads, but you do not hear the noise of the traffic. Rooms are immaculate and quite big. Breakfast is nice and includes local food mixed with fried egg and toasts (if you wish).
The owner is awesome. He does everything he can do to make your stay like you are at home.
JUST GREAT....NONO.... ABSOLUTELY GREAT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

we had loads of fun! my partner and I couldn't help but be amazed with the place. the moment we got in, we knew that it's gonna be a nice place to stay. it's homey, relaxing place, the best place to be when you want to unwind. we were in awe when we got in the room. we got excited coz we loved it so much! . Apart from the place, we were both impressed by the service of the owner, and "lilian" the receptionist gave us. they were just wonderful! Would surely be back there if ever we drop by Melaka!

Lovely accommodations (including upscale bed linens!); subtle yet personable hospitality; everything was first-class.

We loved this place. Cyclamen Cottage is a labour of love for the owners. Restored and filled with Straits-Chinese and Colonial artifacts and furnishings. It is a real treat to stay here. Perfect place to relax and unwind.

Excellent place! More a small hotel than a hostel, offering large clean rooms with historical furnishings that blend in beautifully with the old house. We had one of the Deluxe rooms which had a big LCD TV and a four poster bed! Great value for money. The staff were friendly and helpful.

I like the warm hospitality and the owners' effort to preserve the old house is simply respectable. Keep up the good job!!

Absolutely brilliant place! this is extremely good value for money as the quality of the place is worth at least a 3 stars hotel rating. its superclean and the hosts couldnt be friendlier. a downset is the location as it is just a bit too far out of the historical centre for walking distance, though a 3 euro cab ride wont hurt anyone. If you need to cool down and relax, this is the place.
