Being the deal-hunters we are, we’ve scoured through Melaka’s accommodation options to bring you the top Melaka hotels under $100 to stretch your dollar to the fullest. Plus, their excellent locations will have you checking off your eating to-do list in no time
Step back in time at The Sterling with its, white-washed, colonial-inspired architecture. The 37-room establishment sits right in the heart of historical Malacca, great as a base to explore sights like Little India, the Dutch Square and the Malacca river.
Must try: Capitol Satay Celup
Satay lovers, this is your paradise. Cook your meat and veggies steamboat-style, this time in hot, aromatic satay gravy. A 2-minute walk away.

Restored Peranakan wall mouldings, wooden shutters and original kopitiam rattan chairs – it doesn’t get any more authentic than this. But here is no run-of-the-mill boutique hotel, amenities provided are top-notch with en-suite Italian marble rain shower bathrooms, large flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi. Talk about the best of both worlds!
Must try: Kedai Kopi Chung Wah Chicken Rice Ball
Being the chicken rice connoisseurs we are, Chung Wah is definitely worth checking out, and for a reason. Pair the fun-to-break-into rice balls with soft, succulent steamed chicken. Delicious fun awaits just behind the hotel.

HATTEN HOTEL MELAKA
There’s a reason why Hatten Hotel Melaka is so popular among Singaporeans. It’s surrounded by countless shopping malls, restaurants, cafes and is perfect for those seeking luxury at a low cost. Plus, all rooms at Hatten are suites, so a separate living room is included – great for storing all your shopping bags!
Must try: Nadeje Cake Shop
Head right across the street for their famous handmade Mille Crepes. Shop owners tell us top flavours include the Mille Crepe Original, Double Chocolate, Orange Yoghurt and Tiramisu.

If you decide on a spontaneous weekend getaway to Malacca, Jonker Boutique is the perfect base for you to kick things off. Right smack in the heart of Jonker, essential sights, food and local shopping are all within walking distance. Even better, the Jonker Street Night Market (Fri – Sun) is right at your doorstep, guaranteed to fill your stomachs and luggage with even more with knick-knacks.
Must try: Nancy’s Kitchen
For cheap and good Peranakan cuisine, take it from Nancy, who whips up age-old recipes passed down from her grandmother. We recommend the Ayam Buah Keluak (Black Nut Chicken Curry) and Cincalok Omelette (Fried Eggs with Shrimp Paste). A 10 minute walk from the hotel.

HOTEL EQUATORIAL MELAKA
Rooms with a view often have higher price tags. But at the five-star Hotel Equatorial Melaka, guests are spoiled with either views of the Straits of Malacca or the historical St. Paul’s Hill at no extra cost.
Must try: Restoran Nyonya Makko
Also popular for Peranakan cuisine, dishes here offer a home-cooked experience at reasonable prices. Make sure to leave room for dessert, their cendol is known for its creamy coconut milk and generous portions of thick, gooey gula melaka.
