Emily Travellers Home Melacca Reviews
A very "homy" place to stay Feb 05, 2011
Arriving in Melacca, I headed for Emily's. Someone I had met in Cameron Highlands told me about the place and strongly recommended it. After staying there, I can only agree with his recommendation!
It is amazing what you find after entering the place. From the outside it is a rather small building but once through the door you'll find a very special place with cosy, clean rooms, a nice garden with fishpond, a rabbit (which is called "mr. Playboy", flowers and happy, mingling people. When I was there the first time (yes, I went there again on my way back home)there were 6 other guests; 2 of them were repeating visitors.
The 2 brothers who run the place really try to make you feel at home. They are happy to advise you on how and where to go.
There is free coffee, tea and drinking water all day.
In the evening, the coffee table is transformed into an open fire place.
Cold showers only.
There is no internet but when you have a laptop you can use McDonalds free wifi, just around the corner. They don't care if you eat or drink something, you can just sit outside and do your thing.
The old city with it's narrow streets, tourist sites and numerous restaurants is on walking distance.
If you go for local and cheap food: turn left when leaving Emily's, follow the busy street for about 15 minutes and you'll find a huge food market in the evening. Local tastes and prices.
