I cannot stress this enough, DO NOT STAY HERE. This is not because of the dirty rooms with slacking mattresses that are begging for a replacement, nor the paint chipping from the walls. It's not even due to the horrendous smell that permeated everything. No my friends, DO NOT STAY HERE because the owner is an absolute creep. Upon arrival, he told us he had no record through Agoda of our booking as he couldn't access the site. I showed him my receipt of my credit card payment (in full, done through Agoda), and he begrudgingly let us move into one of the rooms. Later that night, my friend got hot (no AC, and the fan isn't near powerful enough) while trying to sleep so she opened the door. Now this is where it gets fun. He came into our room at 4 in the morning, WITHOUT CONSENT, and caressed my friend's arm to wake her up. He then told her to close the window of our dorm, which we had tried to close before with no success. After he closed our window, he asked my friend if she wanted a beer. Let me once again stress, it's four in the morning. As we couldn't sleep knowing the owner of the establishment may walk into our room at any time without consent, we decided to pack up and leave. I hoped we could exchange keys and get our deposits back without conflict. And this is where the fireworks began. The owner launched into a tirade about how he woke my friend up because she was "mumbling in her sleep", the most heinous of crimes, and how our door kept slamming (it wasn't) and disturbing the others. He told us we were being "uncivilized" by yelling at him for coming into our room, and told me that since I paid through a credit card I had no right to complain about treatment. He accused us of being racist because he's Asian (as are we) and stated that since he has our passport numbers he can report us (I expect a call from the sleep police soon). Multiple interruptions and a bunch of nonsense later, we got our deposit back and got the hell out of dodge, stuck with nowhere to stay at 5 in the morning because the owner of this hotel thought it was perfectly in his rights to invade our room in the middle of the night. Whoever you are, however much travel experience you have, DO NOT STAY HERE. Not unless you rather like touchy 4am wake up calls from the most unprofessional business owner I've ever met.

I do not recommend
I was in home sweet home a few months ago with my girlfriend, and I think it is crucial to make a review after the ones I just read in french. We arrived quite late in Melacca, and the owner (Sunil) was really nice and offered us a lift and a stay. Usually we would have refused an offer like that, but he seemed like a honest man, so we went. He brought us around town and told us about his awful day. W made him laugh so he offered to make pancake for us (it was quite late already). At first, we felt bad for him so we wanted to spend a little bit of time with him to change his mind, but he started drinking. He was acting weird with me telling me I was special and stuff. He is bright and figured I was starting to be uncomfortable, and made me feel bad about it. He then offered to buy us some food, we did not understand everything but he had called for the food before we even realised. He said he was paying for it. After hours we it was around 5am and we finally managed to go to bed. (We had a family room because of problems he had with other clients, but it was not supposed to be a problem) At night, I heard a noise (Our room was on the last floor and his was downstairs). The next morning we found a note saying thank you and everything..but it was too much. We had a bad feeling he had abused our kindness...it is hard to explain. The next da we managed not to see him and left quite early the day after. Then, he charged us more and said he never invited us for the food, so I just said that next time it would be nice to know because he was not clear and it is like he was coming back on his words. He EXPLODED he started yelling at us saying we were traitors and everything. We left, choked, him running after us in the staircase. I hope he is trully a nice person, but life made him lonely and sad and now he is just trying to feel a little bit loved..but after reading reviews of people going trough the same thing..I do not know, so just do not go there. Sincerely,

Referred as above, me and bf both get bitten by BED BUGS and it followed and stick with my backpacks! We end up need to go for a thorough laundry for all clothes and bag! Worst ever travel experience! Things I HATE: 1) Hot and Bed Bugs - I got bitten all over my body. Spend extra on medical cream & laundry! 2) Over friendly host - DR Sunil (d psycho yet famous owner) was nice initially in his own way where he often love to knock on your door (every 2 hours) even if it's already 2-3 am, inviting us to join the music jamming and drinking. Drinking offer free.. But we need REST more than entertainment! 3) full of DRAMA - check out others comment. He shared his personal life to us (which we never interested of) & hold us up to 5am listening to his story. Horrible. We were both so torn out for being kind to be the dumb listeners. He can win Best Actor too with his dramatic face expression when he talk about his life. 4) this owner is really a NO-NO for solo female traveller! If you are traveling with your spouse, please stick to your the other half ALL THE TIME! Do not show any empathy to any of Dr Sunil's story. (And I bet he's not even a Dr, why would a doc running such a rundown guesthouse? And grab late night travellers at Melaka Sentral??) Here's what happen to me: On my 2nd night stay, he tried to hint me that he's a better choice as spouse and I gotta change my bf. (I know d difference of a joke and seriousness) he quickly open his arm and gesture me to hug him. Thank god My bf on d right timing, came out from bathroom. And Sunil quickly smile to him and walk away. We knew something is not right and check out immediately d next day. 5) RACIST or BIAS. Reading from comments, Sunil sort of treating foreign travelers slightly more polite than local travellers. We were treated coldly in d beginning too as Sunil thought we are local Malaysians. But his attitude change 360 degree when he knew we aren't locals. Note: owner will show you his true colours when u stay more than 1-2 nights! Try it!! If you hate reading long essays, here's d summary: VERY "CHEAP" and DISASTER. if you are not a drama believer, try this place. I PUT 5 STARS, BECAUSE U SHOULD READ THIS!! I tried some other places and I never regret it more. Victor Guest House is one of them! 💯‼️ So much of a heaven (Victor) and hell (HSH) experience! Melaka is a very beautiful city to visit. Don't ruin your holiday because of d drama from Mr Sunil. 😁😁😁

Honeymoon stay
My husband and I enjoyed our honeymoon very much at homes sweet home! Right when we arrived our room was cooled to the perfect temperature. Witch was great bc our taxi drive was exhausting and Hot! We stayed in room 8 and our view was amazing. Although I think the best thing about the resort is the chef! He prepared us the most amazingly delicious meals! We ate there quite a few times. The manager was very helpful with helping arrange things to do during our stay. We went snorkeling and horseback riding. Witch we enjoyed very much. The only thing I did not like was the amount of weird bugs and mosquitos at night. I have about a dozen bites on my body from waking up with them flying around our bed side. But besides that my husband and I definitely recommend this resort!

Don't stay here. It's a trap!
The guy picked us up from the main station, offering to take us to town for free if we stayed at his guesthouse for the night. The prices that he told us kept varying, but since we missed the last bus and didn't know where to stay, we agreed. On the way back he drove us around town for about 30 minutes explaining about the town's history (seems to be his thing, reading the other reviews here). He kept talking about his life and his problems without us even responding because we were so tired and wanted a place to crash. He talked about how many guests were staying at his place that night, that he was fully booked and that some of his guest held a music session in the lounge (there was literally no one!!). The bathrooms and the room weren't really clean. We slept on our towels because there were little black spots on the mattress and we were afraid of bed bugs. Plus the pillows had lots of hair :/ He acts like he doesn't have change and offers to give it back to you in the morning, happened to us as well as to one other guest. He promised to take care of our bus tickets but never did. When we had to leave early in the morning he was no where to find (he told us before he would be sleeping in one of the rooms) and he never gave us our deposit back!!! ALL the rooms besides one were empty and there were no names in the guest register either. Highly non-recommended!!!
