We stayed at the Premiere Room where there is a daybed. Swimming pool is also well looked after. Location wise, what can I say. For people who don't drive there,...

Been here numerous times. Hotel is right next to shopping mall, though not connected directly. It is also old and dated.

Hotel just changed towels recently too compared to...

Have a short stay with friends at this Hotel Equatorial Melaka. Check in was fast and the front desk staff were polite and efficient. The room was nice and clean though the air con was a little noisy but cold. Overall it was a nice stay with numerous eateries and massage places around the corner.

A late checked in to this hotel on 07/11/2016 was greeted with warm and friendly welcome by the person in charge at the reception. Variety of foods offered to taste. Only by walking distance to dataran pahlawan. After all, it's a pleasant place to stay.

For more than 10 years this hotel has always been the preferred hotel whenever we visit Malacca. Even though the hotel is a little old, it had always provided excellent service. However, under the new management, things have changed. Firstly, the hotel's website promises the best price for direct booking. On 18 Oct we booked a room for 2 nights...
