To me, abt the same. Both offer almost the same and standard hotel facility. Unless talking abt A'Famosa resort, then the theme park might fun for young kids.
How about any less than RM$100 room or around that price, which hotel will be recommend?

Since go there for 1 night and most of time is out of the hotel, as long as the room is clean and safe can liao. Any suggestion? Thanks again.

Becos Malacca is a tourism city, so the hotel rate is not really cheap especially the hotels within tourism area. Holiday Inn and Hotel Equatoria at least RM200+ to RM300+.

However, for less than RM100, you may try this hotel. It is walking distance (5 mins max) to shopping malls (Mahkota Parade & Pahlawan).

As I plan to drive to Melaka, Hotel Equatorial Melaka or Holiday Inn which one is better in term of for fmaily especially yound kids.
I read in the trip adviser forum, if it is not wrong that holiday inn provide shuttle to jonker street. However, for shopping wise, Equatorial is nearer.

last bus on friday nite

last bus from larkin, if i am not wrong, is 830pm or 9pm.. The bus will be Mayang sari.. Anyway, why take the risk where you may end up no more tickets to Malacca.. why not take a direct bus from Singapore?
Thanks Buswhiz for the info. In the end, I managed to catch the last Mayang Sari bus from Larkin to Melaka at 9pm (only available on fri)

For the same price, i would stay at Equatorial rather than holiday-inn. The only thing good about holiday inn is that its the newest hotel in Malacca. Other than that, Equatorial location is more central. I heard that Equatorial breakfast is also quite good.

If i am not wrong, equotorial is about RM300++ and holiday inn is about Rm 270++. Not a lot of difference.

And with the traffic conditions in malacca getting worse each day, walking is certainly a better choice than shuttle buses.

Yes. My friend stayed there last Dec. When they mentioned that they need a taxi to Jonker Street, the bellhop took van key and drove them (6 ppl). But they do not wait & drive you back to hotel. My friend gave gave him tips lor.
Think Holiday Inn opened in 2007, so they gave good service. Not very sure now.
