We stayed there during 17-18 Sep. The only thing that irks us is that check-in process when we arrived. The counter couldnt manage so many of us and there's a snaking queue. The room we have is clean, spacious and overlook the pool. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast have variety of food and they taste good. Staffs were friendly, I don't... More

Pros: - clean deluxe room with balcony overlooking the pool - comfortable bed - polite staff at the reception - very convenient (the best feature!), walking distance to tourist attractions like St. Paul's Hill, Christ church, The Stadhuys, River cruise, Melaka Tower (observation deck), Maritime museum...

I and my family members like Hotel Equatorial. We visited Melaka on 9 Sept 2011 to 11 Sept 2011. Hotel staffs were friendly and helpful. During the stay, we were informed the rooms in some levels were renovated. However, it was still a pleasant stay as renovation works only happened during day time. Hotel's breakfast was variety for different days,... More

Just returned from 2 nights at the hotel. Location is just great, it's just beside a huge shopping mall. The other malls are also within walking distance. I think we were stayin in a refurbished room. Must say it is very clean. In place of a balcony, there is now a day bed overlooking at straits of melaka, which on... More

Being a regular to this hotel, their stds have dropped even though this is my 23rd visit, Their Club Rooms with no. 505/605/705/805/905 are no good as they are located near their hotel air-cond generators thus very noisy, loud, lots of hot air when stepping out on their balcony. The reason I am saying this, is b'cos I was given... More

We had chose to stay in Equatorial over Renassiance due to it's close proximity to the shopping mall as we have with us the young and old together during the trip. It is definitely more convenient for us when we shop at the malls as we don't need to drive out and that saved us some time. Other that the... More

Check in was quick and fuss free and staff were friendly enough. When we reached our floor was that it had a weird, musky smell. Not a good first impression. Room and bathroom were huge but furnitures and carpets obviously needed a overhaul. Lightings in the room was pretty poor and made the whole room feel gloomy and creepy. No... More

I stayed at this hotel for 4 days for a conference. The room and amenities are in good condition. Location-wise, it is not next to the beach, but located strategically close to the world heritage site, which is a 5-10 minutes walk away. It is also right next to Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall, which is very convenient if you want... More
