Hotel Bao Shu
Ranked #121 of 222 Melaka B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 November 2012

Hotel Bao Shu is situated near to the buzzing Jonker Street in Melaka (about 10mins walking distance). The street where you can find 'Restoran Famosa Chicken Rice Ball' and a lot of other stalls selling souvenirs, clothings and antiques. There are also Cafes and Pubs at Jonker, where you could chill out in the evening for a drink or two. Jonker Street is also a minute away from the Melaka River, which provide a rather spectacular view at night.

The hotel is also relatively near to Makhota Parade/Hatten/Pahlawan Megamall (shopping malls)which is approximately 15-20mins on foot.

Not forgetting, the hotel room rates are affordable too. Both my friend and I shared the same room (Two singles) for approx RM110+ per night. The rooms are clean.

Nearby (across two streets), there is the infamous Satay Celup stall called, 'Capitol Satay'; along Bukit Cina. You can't miss the stall especially when there is a long queue awaiting to be seated.

If you are thinking about shopping at AEON JUSCO , or TESCO, it is a much longer distance on foot, then walking to Makhota Parade and those malls nearby to it. It takes about 30 to 45mins to get there and you'll need a map for it. However, there is a slight advantage if you travel on foot. You get to pass by , 'The Store', which is a two-storey hypermarket type of mall.

You may also wanna check out 'Discovery Cafe' , which is along the same stretch where Hotel Bao Shu is. You should also try the fried oyster and Wan Ton Mee stall that is directly opposite the hotel which only opens after 7.30pm.

Alright, food and shopping aside. Let us not drift far away from this review. Overall, all i can say is that the hotel is clean, the staffs are friendly and it's definitely value for money.

You may wanna check out:
Jonker Street - Geographer Cafe. Restoran Famosa Chicken Rice Ball
Heeren (oppo Jonker St) - Cafe 1511 (Good Nyonya food)
Within Makhota - Mixx Disco
Within Hatten - Overtime (Get yourself a Starker beer and enjoy the live band performance)

Pluses - short walk to the historic tourist attractions, riverside, cafes and numerous museums Malacca has on offer
Minuses -
price - 90 ringitt for a small single room puts it well above surrounding guesthouses
poor cleaning; room was ok on arrival but no daily cleaning, had to take towel to reception for a fresh one, empty own wastepaper basket downstairs
tv - advertised as 'satellite tv'. Two channels only with a clear picture, 18 too poor to watch. No English language channel available
It would be adequate for a one-night stay, for a longer visit like mine I'd be looking elsewhere, both in terms of price and facilities.
