Heeren Straits Hotel is a charming boutique hotel located right at the heart of Melaka, a UNESCO World Heritage site with a rich cultural core and a strong historical presence. In keeping with the city’s preservation of their unique multicultural heritage and townscape, the Peranakan townhouse in which Heeren Straits Hotel is housed has also been carefully restored to highlight its beautiful architecture with its interesting mix of Dutch style, Peranakan flair and colonial influences.

Much of the antique marble, still beautiful though faded with an aged patina, has been meticulously reconditioned in many areas of the Hotel. The vividly coloured Peranakan wall mouldings and plaster renderings in the Hotel’s front façade have also been painstakingly restored. The timber ceiling beams were then sympathetically refurbished and the walls were painted thoroughly with ground sea shell calcium paint which allows the walls to breathe.

In combination with these aspects of preservation, modern luxury fittings and finishes, such as Italian marble bathrooms with sensuous rain showers and contemporary light fixtures, have been thoughtfully included during the restoration process. This seamless fusion of antique and contemporary has created a luxurious heritage hotel which promises you an enjoyable and comfortable stay whilst exploring the wonderful city of Melaka

the LOCATION

With its convenient location on Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, or Heeren Street as it is more commonly known as, Melaka’s rich history starts right at the doorstep of Heeren Straits Hotel. Though less bustling than nearby Jonker Street, Heeren Street has arguably more old world charm and boasts amazing sights and interesting stories.

Initially called Heeren Street, this narrow street was renamed Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock after its namesake passed away on Dec 13, 1960 to recognise the patriot’s contributions to Malaysia. It was once the choice neighbourhood for prosperous Straits-born Chinese in the mid-19th and early 20th century.

As with most houses on Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Heeren Straits Hotel is narrow yet long on the inside. This is because during Dutch rule, property taxes were based on the width of each house, instead of the total area. Other characteristic features include ornately decorated façades, open courtyards to provide ventilation and light and small wells to draw water.

A short walk from the Hotel will take you to the busy street of Jonker Walk which is flanked on both sides of the road with heritage houses dating back to the 17th century. From there, learn more about the history of Melaka with a visit to the nearby places of interests such as the Baba and Nyonya Heritage Museum, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, Dutch Square, Christ Church Melaka and The Stadthuys.
