I haven't been to Melaka for like what, aeons ago? I think the last time I went to Melaka was when I was pregnant with Husayn and we stayed at A'Famosa Resort. Nice place, got private swimming pool for each bungalow and I ended up staying in the pool for a few hours despite being 6 months pregnant that time!
And now, thanks to me who are always one step ahead of husband in thinking of places to go, things to do I have successfully force my husband to take leave on February 2 so we can have a holiday, and this will be the first holiday for baby Almira if all goes well, insya Allah! I love February because February means a number of public holiday for employees like moi - the Federal Territory Day, Chinese New Year and Maulidur Rasul.
Holiday in Melaka means staying at a hotel, but which hotel to choose la dey? I want hotel near town, don't want the ones at Ayer Keroh. Here's a few that I have shortlisted:
1. Renaissance Melaka - rate started from RM190 for Government servant. Not sure where exactly is this hotel and dah google but still yet to understand. Haha. 2 days rate is RM440, ok tak?
2. Aldy Hotel, Melaka - First time I saw the description - "red spot area", first thing that came in my mind is the red light district in Amsterdam, boleh? Haha. This hotel is supposedly located near Stadthuys and all those red building area. Twin sharing superior room started from RM160 ++.
3. Jonker Boutique Hotel - situated right smack in Jonker Street and this one of those quaint boutique hotels there, aside from Hotel Puri and Courtyard @Heeren. Rate started from RM198 but worried there would be so much noise from the Jonker Street crowd. After all we'll be at Melaka near Chinese New Year and what if there's lion dance performance there during the night? Memang tak tidur la anak-anakku. Ish.
4. Emperor Hotel - One of the cheapest that I found so far, but not so good review at Trip Advisor. Honestly am not too fussy about hotel as long as it's clean (which include clean bathroom and no stained sheet please..), I'm all ok. Should I choose this over, Renaissance? Still this hotel is one of the cheapest since online rate is Rm256 for two days, superior room with king sized bed wey. Anybody stay here before?
So if anybody of you has experienced Melaka hotels before your advice is very much appreciated! Thankies! Muah muah!
