The Stable is a sublime sanctuary in the hub of Malacca’s historical precinct, between Heeren Street, once a narrow street filled with wealthy colonial residences and the famous Jonker Street, which now houses antique dealers, museums, restaurants, galleries, cafes and craft shops. The Stable is a smart, witty and charming reinvention of what use to be a horse stable built during the 16th century Dutch occupation of Malacca.
Original wooden beams dances around richly-textured rooms of rough exposed bricks, Peranakan tiles, quaint louvered windows and reclaimed lumber floor. An inviting bed beckons you to relax while looking out the window to the lively street below. With a brilliant collision of influences – from the modern to the baroque to the local Peranakan heritage, this small guesthouse is an inspired fusion of old-world charm with distinctly contemporary style and energy
The Stable represents the next generation of Cheap Chic – stylish, individualistic, young at heart and utterly cool.
