I am sure like many before us, the choice of a hotel is based on its location, The location of this hotel is close to Jonker Street. As we had a child, this place also seemed ideal as it has a large pool.As I found out, there is much more to consider!! The staff were incompetent from checking in to... More

took a travel package with a service provider and the coach brought us to equatorial hotel. It is located right beside the shopping mall and was walking distance to the ever famous Jonker Street. We didn't try the breakfast so I have no comments on that. But it was so popular with the guests that it may seem quite noisy... More

The hotel is definitely not 5 stars luxurious, but I already knew before arriving. Having said that, the Club Room which I booked was comfortable, the bed was good, and I liked the larger than usual room size and large toilet. Location is good such that I don't need to drive as much compared to when staying at Holiday Inn.... More

Location is great too as it's right next to the shopping mall and street with eateries, within 10-15mins walk of Jonker St too. Breakfast served at the hotel... More
