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.
