Do those buses from Larkin have space for luggage (just like coaches from Sin)?
Coaches yes, just follow standard brand names, of course those lao pok bus won't have

Which hotel do you guys usually stay in Melaka?

Last time I stayed in Hatten hotel before. The location of the hotel is great but only thing that it was quite crowded during the weekend and there were long queues at the check in counter so checking in took some time.

So I might want to stay other hotels the next time I go there.
Any recommendations?

Casa del Rio. I like that location better, as many places are within walking distance. Like The Shore, even walked back from Jalan Gajah Berang, Jonker obviously, then Dataran Pahlawan all the way to Mahkota Parade. Could have walked to the Portuguese Settlement too, as got as far as somewhere near there.

But that's back when Grab Car wasn't available, only Grab Taxi at best. Grabbed to Aeon Mall.

Now looking at something cheaper in the same area... narrowing down to Hotel Puri, Heeren by the River, and possibly even Quayside.

Casa del Rio a little expensive though. Don't want to spend so much. I'm also looking at something cheaper in the same area.

Timez Modern Heritage Hotel looks not bad too.

My fav all time at melaka is strait hotel. It's suite is cheap s$100 per night and good parking lots. Walking distance to hatten and restaurant below open till 4am Lok Lok shoik while couple of mama shop open 24hrs.

Stayed there like 8-9 times already. Hygiene and cleaniness not there yet but still cheap.

For those not driving, heritage hotel is the next best for cheap and big room. Minus pt - no carpark lot for customer.

yes. try to book early. shouldnt be that expensive, should be around sgd40 per night for the normal rooms.

very good if u drive cos there're plenty of food all over melaka. can oso consider driving to tangkak (about 1 hour). no need to go via ns hwy. take small road there and enjoy the countryside view. can makan famous food like char siew sio bak mee, beef noodles, bak kut teh, shanghai seafood (this one is ok ok only but my wife nn her friends say nice)...

i usually have bf in jb before driving straight to melaka. after bf, i will drive straight to kl.

wanton mee, chicken rice, kway chap - cedar point

roti canai, murtabak - abmh (along this row of shophouses, there's a kopi tiam selling wanton mee, kolo mee, laksa...) there's also a money changer beside the restaurant. rates r ok.

taman sentosa area has quite a few kopi tiam and hawker center opened for bf at 6+am too.

i think holiday starts next week. so if u can, try to be at customs before 6 or 630am.
