I spent one night at Equatorial Malacca recently for a conference held there. I have stayed here few times before but this is my first review. Location wise, this is probably the best you can be if you want to be in Malacca city center. It's just walking distance to the malls and many main tourist attractions like Dataran Pahlawan,...

Hotel looks old and dull from the outside. However, great rooms and service rendered by the staff! Rooms were quite spacious and clean. Location is excellent as well! Few minutes walk shopping malls, and a very short ride away to major attractions such as Jonker Street. It is one street down to Jonker but the heat and humidity will kill... More

If you want a hotel that is walking distance from the historical part of Malacca city, this is a good hotel. The rooms have been renovated and key card access for the lifts have been added. A few things to note: the airconditioning in the ballrooms and some of the guest rooms is extremely cold and cannot be adjusted. The... More

Stay at this hotel for an organizational retreat. Generally, nothing negative to comment about the hotel since I did not have to pay for my retreat. Hotel looks old on the outside but still pleasant and functional inside. This is the 2nd time I am staying at this hotel. Rooms are comfortable enough - been told that some rooms have... More

We were upgraded to an executive suite from premium room as there are full on premium rooms that consist of king sized beds. The cons were: 1) the flushing systems in both the toilets are terrible. do not want to emphasis on the details. abit disgusting 2) room service.... More
