Smack in the middle of the historic quarter on Jonkers Street, Twenty Guesthouse is a relatively new budget boutique hotel run by two friends. Young, bohemian and thoroughly modern the immaculately converted 17th century Dutch mansion has simple but stylish single and double rooms, shared bathrooms, internet access and a view of the rooftops from a balcony out back.It’s also ideally located, a mere stones throw from Melaka Raya, with the night market on its doorstep on weekends and Nature’s Forest Spa next door, if you need TLC after a night on the tiles. Prices are RM95 for doubles and RM50 for singles, and includes brekkie.
