Good value hotel in Melaka
I stayed at the Mimosa Hotel for 2 nights in December 2005, stopping in Melaka en route from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.
This is a clean, modern hotel in a busy market area with well-equipped rooms and a reasonable complimentary breakfast.
I paid RM125 (approx 20 GBP / 30 Euros) per night, including breakfast and a complimentary English language newspaper, the New Straits Times.
The room types available are Standard, Superior, Special Superior and Deluxe, with prices ranging from RM98 for a standard twin to RM232 for a deluxe double.
My superior room included en-suite facilities (bath and shower), air-conditioning (much needed!), a mini fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, satellite TV (including the invaluable ESPN Sports channel with live English football), a wardrobe, an armchair and an IDD telephone. Oddly, a notice on the wall included the price of all items in the room in case anyone wanted to purchase them as souvenirs - this included everything from the TV and the wardrobe to the bin and the shower curtain!
The buffet breakfast consisted of a reasonable variety, including toast and marmelade, boiled eggs, baked beans, noodles, fried potatoes and various local specialities that I didn't recognise (often including noodles and seafood). Coffee, tea and fruit juice is also available. Breakfast is served in the ground floor Lattice Cafe.
Other services offered by the hotel include: free car parking, safe deposit boxes in reception, fax and postal services, laundry service and hair dryers,irons and cots which can be hired upon request.
The Town Square, the riverside and China Town are about 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel. There are numerous shops and restaurants surrounding the hotel.
Taxis are generally available directly outside the hotel.
Directions: On Jalan Bunga Raya, close to Jalan Bendahara. A 10 minute walk to the river, the Town Square and China Town.

Travel Tips for Melaka
World War ii
After World War II, anti-colonial sentiment bred in the country among the nationalists, the result of which the proclamation to Independence by His Highness Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, Malaysia's first Prime Minister, at the Padang Pahlawan (Warrior's Field) at Bandar HIlir, Malacca on 20th February 1956.
Ayer Keroh Country Club
Designed by the late Deputy Prime Minister, Tun Ghafar Baba, the 27-holes golf course was carved out of virgin jungle in 1964... Playing to par-72, the original Tunku and Ghafar Nine play to a long 6504m with the Tunku Nine at 3258m and the Ghafar Nine at 3246 from the blue tees... Later a additional nine was added in the mid-90s... The par-36 Governor Nine plays to 3172m...
The three nines hug a lake known as the Ayer Keroh Lake which comes into play at quite a few of the holes... There are fair share of bunkers and other obstacles at strategic places, but the course is notorious for the jungle that lines both sides of almost every fairway... It is avery long course by any standard and the cow-grass fairway is metriculously maintained... There is the usual man and lady changing rooms... The golfer's terrance overlooking the swimming pool serves light meals and drinks... Pan West maintains a pro-shop at the club...
Teh Tarik Competition
This is a once-off competition so it's unlikely you'll see it. But when I was in Melaka, there was a teh-tarik competition and the winner entertained us with some really gravity defying stunts by tossing a milky brown string of tea up and down many times. I'm quite sure whoever drank the tea at the end of the competition would feel giddy.
Distributor of Local Food Products
This is a shop where most tourists to Melaka will converge here for some shopping. You can find Melaka local produce and food stuff of all around Malaysia. It's a hot spot for group tourist. Some famous products from Tan Kim Hock are durian and coconut sweets, Melaka sugar, pineapple tarts, Cincalok and Dodol (durian paste). Other Malaysian food stuff - white coffee, fragrant biscuits, nutmeg, Belacan, Keropok (fish & prawn crackers), Bak Kut Teh (Pork's rib soup) soup base, ginger sweet... just to name a few. Choices are abundant here with unlimited stock supplies. Ask the sale assistants for food sampling.
If you like to taste their chendol made from sweet Melaka sugar, purchase your RM3 coupon from the cashier at the main entrance. Available in durian flavour too.
Have a look at the street performance by Master Ho at Jonker Street.
Master Ho set a record of poking through 3 coconuts in 10 seconds.
When I was there he was trying to sell his medicine which could instantly stop bleeding. A bottle cost RM20.
He would ask foreigner to test his coconut and boast about his records.
We waited and waited but did not see him in action.
So is he really going to perform or just trying to sell his medicine?
