Going to stay at Holiday Inn Malacca next month, thanks for the info/tips.

If not a risk taker, from Holiday Inn walk further up to cross the road under the overhead bridge, then walk back/down again from opposite direction. This way is a bit far but safe.

But normally ppl chiong.

Just came back from malacca.
Stayed at Sri Costa.
I think the only good thing about this hotel is the location. It's just opp holiday inn.
I don't think i will stay in this hotel again.
Its room stinks with cigratte smell, no refrigerator, "grey coloured" dirty bedsheets, stain dotted pillow cases. Even the room main door was spoilt.
Their customer service also sucks. The staffs were rude and it's as if we are begging for them for parking coupons to park in front of their hotel. We ended up buying a $RM5 day parking coupon instead...

Well, hotel aside, we tried the Chung Hwa chicken rice (coffee shop opp OCBC bank).
That's the famous one, according to my relatives there.
We tried going to Capitol satay steamboat but was too crowded. It opens at 5pm, so if you want to try, you will need to queue up early esp weekend.
The chendol at megamall "San Shu Kong" was very nice.
Do try it if you are there.

I second ur opinion that Seri Costa sucks. I kena summon when i was there for parking at the wrong place. Apparently, there were just a few lot which the hotel guest could use while checking in. I was summon RM30 for parking at the wrong place while just checking into the hotel...(less than 10 mins)...

The hotel room are also not fantastic....Like TazMan said, the only good thing is the location, but it can get a bit dark at night.

Yap, traffic police and car park "enforcers" (aka fatimah of our HDB car parks) there are super onz!!! We can see one every turn. They usually wear green colour vests. It's something that I really didn't expect esp in malaysia. But, I think that is needed because of the horrible traffic there. If I go there again, I think I'll spend a bit more to stay either at equatorial or holiday inn. It's walkable distance to megamall and jonker street and the rooms are in good condition. Just park the car there and walk around town.

I am planning to go to Malacca on 21 dec. It's a Monday. Do you guys think it's safe to go without room reservation? I am indeed planning taking the express bus from Larkin to save the cost. I hope it's going to be fine

Hearsay Holiday Inn is so popular with sporean that most dates are fully booked. Better check before you go.
