Each time we visit Melaka, the skyline keeps changing. Changing with more new hotel developments and maybe one day soon will be in comparison to Las Vegas minus the casinos. However, we must admit, the old charm of Melaka still lingers in the food and street market of yesteryears. Our favorite hotel is still the Equatorial Hotel Melaka. Still standing... More

I stayed in an Equator Club Room, which was extremely spacious and clean. The sitting area, fruits and very fast wifi were nice touches. Great service from the staff as well. Our only gripe was that the breakfast buffet was not up to scratch (food was not replenished quickly, and flies were buzzing around the eating area). The hotel's location... More

Resturants at this hotel are very good, although there are many cheaper places to eat within a 15 minute walk. Rooms very comfortable and well equiped with reasonable view of the sea, past an ever increasing number of tall buildings springing up in Melaka. Not that you go to Melaka to see the sea nor walk on the non existent... More

Balcony view from 14th floor of Hotel makes me a pleasant feeling. Nice Breakfast Buffet. Nice view of Swimming Pool at Level 3. But still need to add in Historical Fees RM 2 per pax. The fact I prefer was the hotel is placed near around the city attraction and so we could go around by walking. I also want... More
