Advice: there is no shopping mall within walking distance near the Bayview, but the old market place Bunga Raya is within walking distance. Why do you visit Malacca for its shopping malls, anyway?

Oh yes, Luxury tours located at Concord hotel level 2. There are a lot of agencies selling packages to Malacca, you may want to look around.

First time to Malacca i will recommend you to stay in Equatorial Hotel or Holiday Inn as most attraction are within walking distance and of course, with a shopping center just beside.

You may want to google the locality map and decide. if you decide to stay at bayview, do note that there is a Nonya restaurant just opposite which serve very nice dishes.

yes this is gd recommendation.

i juz got back today from philea resort....rm45 cab fare to and fro to junker street from the resort!

but the resort itself is quite nice. i thought the cab fare is too much as its too far from main town.

i saw equatorial right in the middle of everything. and holiday inn not far away from the shopping malls.

Try to stay near Jonker street itself. Recommend 2 of the best:

1) http://courtyardatheeren.com
2) http://www.majesticmalacca.com

If you stay in Majestic, cross the road and you shall find the stall selling the famous best in town - Roti John. Look for "Puteri Erra" signboard.

the journey from singapore to mlk is around 4 hours, excluding any unexpected jam at the causeway..

actually, you can book hotel by yourself, and take any bus from singapore to malacca, the price range from $20.80 to $25 depending on your preference..

I was staying in equatorial last week .. Most convenient IMHO ... Go everywhere by foot ... Walked to jonker takes 10 to 15 mins ...
Palhawan is just a stones' throw away ...

But having stayed at holiday inn 2 years ago I must say that holiday inn has nicer rooms ...but location a further 10 mins away to jonker street ...

IMHO, try avoid Bayview if you don't drive. If budget is concern, consider Mahkota Hotel, I think shd be around the same rate as compare to Bayview.

Malacca is not difficult to F&E.

Avoid Mahkota. Used to be Singaporean favourite but rooms are run down and old. Holiday Inn is much much better for the same price.

If budget Ok, of course Holiday Inn is much much better. I do not think the price is the same for both. Different category.

My opinion on the hotels in melaka
1. Equitorial hotel, near to historical places like A famosa, shopping center like Dataran Pahlawan and mahkota parade. I think equitorial hotel is the best location where you can shop, hang out with Pub, sight seeing
2. Holiday Inn & Mahkota - near to Mahkota shopping center which is just opposite..
3. City baview - Nothing interesting around there
