We had a last minute trip to Melaka. We chose the Equatorial this time and loved it! The lobby was beautiful and the check-in was a breeze. We booked 2 premier rooms which were interconnected. The day-beds facing the waterfront was lovely since we were on the 17th floor. It was an upgraded room but the bathroom could use more "upgrading". It was definitely clean though.
The café at the lobby(etc...) serves in-house pastries which were decadent. In addition, we arrived late and chose to eat at their restaurant called Rest House. It was a beautiful seafood spread cooked in traditional Asian fare and one of the best buffets we have had. We chose to have breakfast in our room and the food as well as service was impeccable.
The biggest benefit of this hotel was its location. It was walking distance to tourist sites and the mega-mall next door made it much easier for us. It is a great family hotel and we would return.
