The Executive Room which is known as the Equator Club Room is definitely more value for money staying at this hotel. It comes with the use of the executive lounge that is located in the 21st floor with the serving of wine and variety of coffee and tea. I tried out their latte and it is a thumb up! The... More

This hotel is popular because if it's location. But with new hotels like Hatten, Imperial Heritage, The Straits Hotel & Suites, Eco Tree and more springing up nearby, this hotel will lose its popularity if it doesn't do something about the condition of its rooms. The room we had on the 10th floor is very spacious but smelled of cigarettes.... More

First time visited Malacca and stayed at Equatorial Hotel. Location was good as it's just opposite the Pahlawan Mall which is also linked to another mega mall. It is also about 15-20 mins walk to the famous Red Square and Jonker Street. The latter is a must-visit if you want to experience Malacca street food and shopping. But expect big... More

There are so many hotels in Malacca!!! This hotel is at a strategic location of good food, shopping n tourist spots. The norm in my philosophy is never stay in a Malaysian hotel after 10yrs as good maintenance is not their cup of tea. Equatorial has excelled in this area of maintaining the property!! Overall hotel is still well maintained.... More

My second stay here. We were prompty moved into another room because the toilet wasn't working and we couldn't close the bathroom door. The second room was better but there was still problem with the bathroom door. Check-in and check-out was smooth with no need for a long wait. The lifts were prompt and breakfast was good enough.

This is a large, 4-5 star hotel located within an easy walk of most of the tourist sights. It is also across the street from four inter-connected shopping malls. Our room was large, almost qualifying as a suite. At first it had kind of a musty smell, but it either went away or we got used to it. Check-in did... More
