I went to stay in Equatorial on the 30th May. The reception was fast and efficient. I was greet with a smile the minute I stopped my car in front of the lobby. Luggage was carried to my room and the next day, back into my car again. The service was excellent. A 5 stars indeed. The pool was great , big and clean.Not crowded even on weekends.The room was a bit outdated in design and relatively quite small but it was clean and everything functioning.Walking to Jonker street can be quite far but u can easily hire a trishaw in front of the hotel. Basically everything meets my expectation especially the concierge and bellman service was indeed good.The location of the hotel is near to historical places.It will be better if the hotel can provide free shuttle service to this places as well. Overall I enjoyed the stay minus the traffic noice aorund the hotel in the morning which can be quite obvious at times.
