I started my drive at 1.30pm at Ayer Keroh and reached Tuas at 4.30pm. Not a bad deal. There were intermittent stoppages along the highway. The emergency lane was occupied throughout. There was about 30min of queuing at Gelang Patah, but I cleared Tuas in under 10min.
Traffic in Malacca town was worse than ever.

I can see that the hotel is right in the thick of the action of Jonker Street, right in front of the stage. During the weekend evening, when the street is converted to pedestrian-only, expect the stage to be used till about 10pm, ditto the shops and street stalls. Vehicle access is similarly restricted. In any case, the traffic around the area is congested.

I concur that too..


Jonker Boutique Hotel (Price check for Mid May at about S$77 Superior Room)

Aside from traffic for those who drives, the location is not too bad due to the food places and 30 mins from A Famosa and Sam Po Kong Temple.

Nonetheless it's not really very comfortable in my review list esp the bed. I would up the budget if permissible for you and head to Hotel Equatorial Melaka..

Located further away from the crowds but yet near enough to the action places..

Hotel Equatorial
Mid may Double Or Twin Deluxe at about S$120

Hatten's carpark is better, brighter, and not many dark spots. Can just park using the ticket and request for complimentary. From the reception. Equatorial carpark has good security tho.

Hatten's new lobby is oredi in operations. The last time I went was still under construction. Shld b better I suppose.. Will b heading there again nxt mth!

guys, i thinking of taking bus from larkin bus terminal to melaka. Can help to see my steps is correct?

1) take bus 856 to woodland causeway. (stay sembawang, make more sense to go straight to causeway)

2)Clear custom, go down take bus 170 to johor custom.

3) clear johor custom go down take again 170 to larkin bus terminal.

4) reached larkin, book a coach to melaka, most pro KKKL, or any better recommendation?

5) reach melaka sentra bus station, quickly go buy return tix.

Melaka sentra bus station can take taxi to hatten hotel.

is the above correct?

Hatten is on top of shopping mall. It is more convenient. I am not sure of the room and the check-in as I have not stayed there before.

I stayed at Equitorial. Took club room. Room nothing to shout about. Not very exclusive unlike other hotels I stayed at which only have club rooms at the same level. The evening cocktail is alright, but can be quite messy. Service is ok, breakfast is ok. Hotel seems abit worn.
