We came to Melaka to see the UNESCO Heritage site as I'm sure most people do, typically as a budget conscious travellers my partner & I tend to stay in places like Chinatown where there is generally a good selection of cheaper hotels & backpacker style accommodation. On arriving in Melaka we were surprised to find much of the accommodation around "Jonker Street" & Chinatown full, along our travels we met up with other travellers in the same predicament eventually we found somewhere for the night however it was way more than we wanted to pay & fairly poor quality for the price.
The next day after crossing over the river & heading toward the oceanfront area we stumbled across this little gem the "Travellers Planet" the hotel building is relatively new & run by a very helpful lady called Anna. Whilst you are not directly in the heritage site her smart, clean & well run hotel is literally 2 minutes walk from many of the main attractions & only one third of the price of the other areas. They offer varying room configurations, free fast wifi, breakfast (basic but all you need to start the day), cooking facilities & a security lock door for Reception meaning only guests have access to the hotel.
We highly recommend Traveller Planet the money you save by staying here you can then spend on some of the fine foods & shopping that Melaka has to offer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Travellers Planet Hostel, Malacca is a modernize architecture building painted with striking orange outlook. Featuring 13 various budget rooms to standard deluxe rooms. When it comes to accommodation, we really meant business to cater for all. Located in the heart of Melaka (Malacca), city of UNESCO historical site. We are just minutes away from all tourist spot such as the Jonker Walk (Chinatown), Fort A'Farmosa, St. Paul's Church, The Dutch Square (Stadhuys) and even all the famous museum. This is the latest and newest backpackers travelers hostel in town. Friendly environment and fairly cheap price for rooms. Rooms availability from Single/Double/Triple Fan / A/C / Attached Bathroom. The best part is the atmosphere here is so laid back and fun, plus the great locality which is near to all sightseeing sites, but not on the main road. So the place is peacefully quiet at all times. Unless the socializing travelers are having a great fun... ... more less
