We loved our 3 nights in Melaka, 2 weeks ago, and our stay in the Equatorial was very good. The room with day bed was spacious and comfortable. Although not right in 'the centre' of town, the hotel is within easy walking distance of the variety of landmarks. We experienced a few minor issues with the shower layout, room safe... More

Stayed 2 nights in August. Check In Although we checked in past midnight (I am sure my puffy eyes were not very friendly) the counter staff was very gracious and friendly. Check in was a breeze, and she was kind enough to upgrade our rooms to Premium, and give us connecting rooms. She was able to explain everything in clear,... More

The room has been renovated. Very new and clean. Nice place to stay since the shopping areas are just a walking distance away. However, my bathroom is quite small. No shower curtain in the bathtub. The conference room is quite big. Nice restaurant. Breakfast with variety of food..
