Where I Have Stayed in Melaka
Even though I still have family members in Melaka, I sometimes like just hideaway in some hotel with my wife and son. Below are some of the hotels I have stayed.
Naza Hotel Melaka
Naza hotel is a small hotel located 1 km away from the Melaka Sentral bus terminal. When we checked in we were sort of lucky to get the newly renovated rooms. It had a nice contemporary look with wooden flooring somehow I feel a wooden or tile flooring for a hotel is much cleaner as it’s easier to clean. Carpets somehow have that musty smell how clean it is. Most of the furniture including the bed headboard was dark brown. There is no bathtub only a shower stall in the room. There is only one food outlet in the lobby that serves some local and international food. But you don’t have to worry because few minutes away are the Hang Tuah Mall loaded with cafes and food outlets.

We also stayed at Century Mahkota Hotel Malacca. We were lazy to drive home after a relative’s wedding at the hotel, so we took a room there. The hotel is situated on the waterfront but as with most of Melaka beaches you can’t swim in it. Directly across the road are the Mahkota Parade and also Medan Pahlawan which are shopping complexes. So in terms of food outlets there is so much more variety. We took the three bedroom apartment because my sister’s family were joining us. The rooms are simple in decoration but we had the one in the far end facing the sea. It was quite clean and spacious. If you plan to visit Historical Sites then this is the place as most of the sites are just around the corner.
Hotel in Melaka – Hatten Hotel Melaka
My Review of the Hatten Hotel in Melaka
We chose Hatten Melaka for two reasons. One was that we could bring my four year old to the Coral Wonderland Aquarium which is just across the road from the hotel. The other reason was that Mahkota Parade was just next door, so my wife could go for her shopping terapy. Check in was a breeze as we checked in on a weekday. Melaka gets really crowded on weekends and holidays, especially hotels around the the historical sites.

My Review of Swiss Garden Hotel and Residences Malacca
As the start of school was extended until the 12th January. We took a trip to Melaka. I needed a rest cause the School Holidays was very hectic and busy where I worked, needed to spend time with my boys and mummy needed a rest as she was three months pregnant. So we had to have a change of atmosphere. Having a energetic two year old, I normally look for hotels that have food courts, a nice swimming pool, interesting places to visit and shopping complex all within walking distance. This time around I chose Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences Malacca as it was in town, above the Shore Shopping Complex and had a little water playground for my kids.

ramarama Hotel Melaka – Reasonably Priced Budget Boutique Hotel in Melaka
Last weekend I had a wedding to attend in Melaka, my niece was getting married . And a Eurasion wedding in Melaka is a tiring but fun whole day affair. There’s the toasting at the bride’s house, then the church ceremony followed by dinner and dance.
Even though Port Dickson is just about an hours drive to Melaka, we felt its best to stay at a small hotel and later go to the bride’s house as we needed to be there very early. A friend spoke of this new budget boutique hotel that just opened in Melaka called the ramarama. Located near the Melaka Sentral and just by the side of Aeon Melaka.

Peace and Tranquility at The Settlement Hotel, Melaka
We chose this place for its location near to the Portuguese Settlement. Because I wanted to let my loved ones try some Portuguese dishes at in Portuguese Square. Sort of showing my son, his roots. This quaint little hotel is about 10 minutes from the Portuguese Square. When booked the room, I was anticipating some cheezy decorated BnB. But what we got impressed me.

Although Melaka is small there is so much do and visit here. And the state government is constantly adding new things, now there’s even a water taxi from the Melaka Sentral to the historical sites using the Melaka River.
