We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed this hotel. We booked a deluxe room as we wanted the benefits of a balcony so we could enjoy the fresh air and whilst the balcony was small we were happy with our decision. There is also the option of the same rooms on the higher floors where the balcony has been... More

Stayed in the Equator Club room (No 805)... not too bad. Spacious and have 2 balconies. Also a spacious bathroom. The only bad thing during this stay is that we were given the room at 6pm (due to school holidays). I know its fully occupied during holidays season... but 6pm is not acceptable for this type of hotel...

Stayed here previously and came back here again at Mar 2014. Room is ok, although now that there are newer hotels around, perhaps it is time to spruce up the area. One thing to note now is that they had disabled the direct LAN connection - reason provided was that hotel guests brought along their gadget to convert the LAN... More

Happy I stayed at this hotel. Well linked with mega malls. The malls are connected by aircon linkways. You can get very close to jonker street and historical sights via the linkways. The service at the hotel is great with a good breakfast buffet spread.
