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?
had stayed bayshore, the shore & swiss garden before~ would recommend swiss garden~

some pics posted at earlier page~

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.
If you refering to Imperial Heritage hotel, do not get the last room at the end of the corridor. the room is small, only walking space between the 2 beds.
i was there 2 years back with a big group and stayed in the last room. was ok when i entered the room, then got a shock when i enter my relative's room, it's almost double the size of my room.

Will be driving up to Melaka this Fri morning.
Would like some suggestion/s on a breakfast/toilet stopover onroute there.

much thanks
Might be a good idea to have breakfast in JB like what someone else said. Take it as a reward for waking up early to clear customs, or take it as a reward for having survived the custom jam if you go in a bit late.
Dim sum is my favourite for early bird breakfast in JB. Because some dim sum shops the things will get sold out even if you go at 10am.
Try to take the chance to explore JB. Don't go and eat at those places near KSL, which you can do on any day trip. But don't detour too much, plan it in a way where you're heading north and it's easy to join the NSHW.

I find Yong Peng a good stop because it's really in between JB and Melaka. Can either go into the town itself or just stop at the R&R. There're are two on the same stretch of road, won't miss it, the coaches stop there. Maybe I'll explore other rest stops on my next trip.

That time I exit Jasin and went by the small road into Melaka for a different scenery. I think it's one exit before Ayer Keroh with a lot of Sime Derby plantations. The Ayer Keroh toll is more expensive, so if you've time and want to save money, then take the Jasin exit or other earlier exits and go by the small road. Just google map and navigate to some location in Jasin and when you exit, you reprogram again.
Coming back to SG I follow the navigation which took me to Ayer Keroh.

You mean in Malacca or other parts of Malaysia? This one is Malacca thread, so shall we keep to the topic?
You find Malacca boring which means you've been there many times and I suppose you've seen it all?

pompus at the shore.

theres an italian restoran further down from bayview hotel, across the street. cant rem the name.

Adding on. If u like to try a ww2 bar , check out sin hiap hin. Walking distance from jonker.
