Those who stay at Equatorial Hotel please do pay extra care to your car in the hotel carpark. My friend's car got broken into and DVD player rip off, cash card n small change in glove compartment all stolen and worse of all dun know how they rip his spedo meter off. In the end got to call AAM to tow to JB workshop and fix new one Cost his about 2K to get a new replacement.

Where did he park his car? Is it at the basement car park of the Hotel? The basement car park looks safe with a Cashier counter operating 24hrs.
Try to park near the cashier if possible...

Why Riviera? So far out of the town. Furthermore, the beach has nothing to see.

Unless got renovation, otherwise the place quite run down liao.

yup konsortium does provide bus till melaka sentral terminal, its about S$25 (one way) and about $30 (one way) if u choose to alight at the hotel. do note that konsortium does not have return trip to singapore from melaka sentral, only from various hotels.

cab fare to equatorial is about RM$15

i have shortlisted Puri Hotel, and have tried calling the bus-companies. The nearest hotel that I can alight is Equatorial Hotel. Seems to me that alighting Equatorial Hotel Lobby or Bus Terminal is the same, am I right?

If you refer to Sentral Bus Terminal, how can it be the same as the Equatorial Hotel? Look up Google Map yourself. The Equatorial Hotel is at least within walking distance from the Puri. Sentral is not.

oopz, what I meant is if I alight at either point, the cab fare to Puri Hotel, is around the same rm$15?
