Very helpful courteous staff, amazing buffet and restaurant! Nicely located and the rooms were very comfotable. The shuttle bus service every two hours was ideal.Thanks to all concerned, we would certainly come back again.

After long flight we were greeted by hotel driver in air conditioned bus with bottled water and straight to smooth check in. Staff extra friendly and did anything they could to help. Rooms spacious and clean, pool and spa areas clean. Buffet breakfast second to none. Also I left camera on bus, told concierge, by the time we were back... More

As part of our package with deals.com, we were pleasantly surprised with their choice. Rooms were comfortable, but starting to show their age. We upgraded to the Club Level which we would highly recommend. The staff, service and facilities were very good. The location really isn't an issue as taxis are cheap and they provide a courtesy bus.

Our family enjoyed our 2 nights/days visit to HCm staying at this hotel. It's a lovely hotel. Rooms were spacious enough to comfortably accommodate an extra bed. We had interconnecting rooms overlooking the pool and they were excellent. We all enjoyed the pool very much too - great pool! Breakfast was a superb spread and we had one dinner at... More

Good quality hotel with excellent staff service & facilities. Clean & modern with nice food. A bit more on the expensive side for food/drinks. Comfy king size beds, bath sheet sized towels & adequate sizes room. A bit far from district 1 but daily free shuttle bus service provided. Great pool with swim up bar. Perfect after a day of...

I really wanted to write 2 separate reviews for the hotel and the Chit Chat cafe but couldn't. So it's going to be an average rating. The hotel rooms and room care are great. Lovely bedding and really taken care of. The one downside is that the windows aren't double glazed and as it's on a main road can be... More

It isn't in the city centre. The Equatorial is a large hotel with all the amenities any city based traveller could want. We stayed for three days there. It is however a good 25 minutes from the central area and there is a need to ensure that when getting a taxi you choose one with a meter (as in London... More

The hotel is a bout 25 minutes from the centre of town in a service industry type area. Shuttles to town start at 10am and go every 2 hrs. We would not choose this locality again for those reasons. Please be aware of taxi scams if you don't find the shuttle times convenient. The hotel is ok but staff were... More

Really nice, friendly hotel. My only complaint is the free wifi was a bit hit and miss. Sometimes it worked well, sometimes it didn't. Free shuttle bus was great. The buffet dinner was unbelievably good. Fresh seafood (including crabs, prawns and fish) cooked to order, steak etc cooked to order.
