This year in January and February 2012 went up to Malacca stayed not for the second time but third consecutive time at hotel Equatorial Melaka. Honestly i fell in love with this old grand dame of Malacca. Previously on three visits stayed at Mahkota Melaka before I was advised by my travel agent to try hotel Equatorial. Since first check-in never regret staying at Equatorial. Location was damn good next to Dataran Pahlawan mall where I simply strolled down next door into the mall. Usually I did after a hearty breakfast which I find hotel breakfast satisfy my early morning crave. So easily accessible you can get a taxi from the mall to get you to Jonkers Street or even take you out of Malacca town to Air Keroh Jusco and Melaka mall. Though the taxi are not metered you need to bargain hard otherwise you be fleeced. From the Dataran you simply crossed the road opoposite to shop til you drop at the Mahkota Parade. Down the road a five minutes walk to Melaka Raya. You can pick and choose which authentic nyonya restaurants to pig out be it lunch or dinner you be spoit for choice - bon apetit so syiok and sedap.
