4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

If you are looking for a short weekend stay, then this hotel is a good choice for that. I've been here with friends for a weekend stay and I love the location. Not only is it near to the malls, it is near to the area with shophouses where you can stroll to - for good Peranakan dining options.

Checked-in and checked out were quick. For the price that i paid (myr 280 per night), i dont have much complaint... More

We were back to this hotel after about a year. This time round, we had a different view from our hotel room as compared to the previous visit. The drove to the hotel from Singapore was a breeze and we checked in pretty fast. There was a shopping mall just beside the hotel and from it we could almost reach... More

Hotel facilities are dated. For some reason, their access card to the room is sensitive to phones. It won't work when it is placed near hand phones. They should do something about that. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good location, near shopping malls and accessible. Good breakfast spread. My niece and nephew enjoyed swimming in the pool. Overall, my family... More

We stayed at the Equitorial Hotel in Melaka on the 13th of December 2014 this was just last weekend. I am not certain if it was just a bad time of the year, but the place was overflowing with guests mostly there to shop in the area. Check-in was a nightmare with many guests being asked to wait for more... More

Stayed in Deluxe room. Though size of room is quite small but cosy and comfortable, still able to have additional bed. Room price was without breakfast but with free wifi up to 2 devices. Loved the wooden shutters - a change from the usual drapes/curtains. Love the towels, all fresh and clean. Hotel room itself is superbly clean. Hotel is... More

we chose hotel equatorial because of the good reviews on tripadvisor and also because we were taking luxury coach from singapore and we could alight straight at the hotel lobby. (by the way luxury coach was honestly good, with really great bus guides.) we reached about an hour early prior to the check in time and our room wasn't ready.... More

Pros: Staff provided excellent service. Helpful and delivered our requests promptly. Side bed was comfortable. Premier room is good for 3 adults or even 4 if you dont mind the squeeze. Location good - there's a mall next door. Cons: No early check in. Bathtub looked dirty, and heater was inconsistent. Pillow is quite flat and wasnt comfortable for me.

Free and safe parking. Location. Great service by the staffs. Old hotel. Need to refurbish. Aircon controls either too cold or hot. Cannot get just temp. Ended up switching on and off aircon. Bed too hard. And water temperature goes cold or hot without any adjusting at times. Overall will come back if Hatten is not available.
