We set off on New Year eve. There was a slight jam along the way, hence we arrived about 1.5 hours later than usual. Check-in... More

Room was pleasant, big & clean. Location is good, shopping mall just directly across. About 15 mins walk to Jonker Walk via shopping mall basement. But hotel lift no direct access to carpark, had to climb stairs.

I visited Melaka sometime in Dec 2012 and we decided to stay in Hotel Equatorial as they are conveniently located. I stayed in their club room as they had a promotion and it was pretty worth it, room is big and comfortable. One big plus is given for the smooth and quick check-in on their club floor, the front desk... More

The beds are extremely comfortable and so are the pillows. Never tried the breakfast nor any restaurants in the hotel so I cannot comment on that. However, we are not far from... More

Nice, old school colonial hotel. Location is excellent and within a short walk of the Stadhuis and Chinatown. Food outlets are in keeping with this style of hotel. When we visited, the pool was empty and we had it all to ourselves. Good value overall.

I normally stay in the Executive/Club room. Loved everything about the room, especially the view on Chinese New Year's day, where there's plenty of fireworks to watch while sipping wine and enjoy the company of family and friends. This hotel always make my stay a happy one. Loved the staffs and everything else, but they lack of parking spaces. When... More
