Just came back from my 2d 1n trip from malacca and book Equatorial premium room. Reason for choosing them is because premium room has a day bed which converted from a balcony and my elder one can sleep there. Location and their safe carpark. Sad to say that this hotel is loosing its charm. Room is indeed huge and spacious,... More

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.

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.

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
