The Equatorial is centrally situated in Melaka and an ideal place to stay for visiting all the land marks and shops, many with in easy walking distance. The hotel is now getting rather dated and needs some updating. There are many new hotels being built in Melaka and the competition is getting very intense. Hopefully it will be able to... More

I stayed in room 2022, and the water from the faucet was DARK BROWN. I called the front desk, they said they'd look into it, and nothing changed. I left as scheduled the next morning. Family staying on the 6th floor didn't have any problems with the water, so it was clearly the room or certain floors. The location is... More

Medium sized room, colonial refurbished though slightly older in looks. Bathroom are dated looking though location is very good for shoppers, Singaporeans favour this property due to its proximity to shopping options. Food options are plenty and within walking distance, not to mention the many massage places (proper looking though). Nyonya Restaurant, Coffee House, Deli and Chinese Restaurant. Ample parking...

The hotel is situated a little away from most of the interesting sights, but that still means only a short walk of 10 to 20 minutes depending on what you wish to see and do. The room we had was very large and comfortable, as was the bathroom. There was a small balcony with a good view of the town... More
