Me and my friend booked a Groupon from Singapore for a one night stay in Melaka at the Hotel equatorial. We both didn't expect very much from the hotel as the Groupon was so cheap and we were both very pleasantly surprised when we got to the hotel. The hotel was in a great location directly across from the main shopping malls and around a 15min walk from the river and main sightseeing spots.
The welcome at the hotel was very friendly and efficient and they managed to provide us with a twin room at the last minute which was not expected. The hotel is very nicely decorated and the facilities are well kept. The staff we met were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us.
The room was lovely! Very modern but homely with its decoration with all the amenities that you would need for a night away. and the view from the balcony was lovely. The beds were very comfortable and we had a lovely nights sleep.
Breakfast was very nice and there was a wide selection of food to suit all tastes. I am quite a fussy eater and i managed a huge breakfast with the choice that was on offer.
We also used the hotels facilities and although the spa was divided into separate men and women areas it was very nice, comfortable and relaxing. One small gripe was that the Jacuzzi wasn't very good (more like a spitting bath) but the steam sauna and outdoor pool were excellent.
If i was to return to Melaka i would most defiantly return to this hotel as we had a lovely stay for a very reasonable price. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone.
