Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback and sharing your experiences on our hotel's facilities and services during your recent stay. I am pleased that your recent stay experience met with your satisfaction. Further to your comment on our lift access from the basement, yes, it is true that all our lifts do not serve the basement as the lifts cannot descend beyond the lobby level. Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience it may have caused. I thank you for your kind review which is certainly valuable in our continuous effort to improve and to correct where we have fallen short and we look forward to welcoming you back to Hotel Equatorial Melaka. Yours sincerely. Dato’ Syed A Rahman Alkaff General Manager

Checking in was easy and even though we were early, we were given the key to one room as the other room was still being cleaned. Room size was good, as we were given a high floor, we get a good high rise view of Malacca. Location was good, just directly across Dataran Pahlawan

This is not a 5 star hotel, it is very dated & shabby. The place would need serious investment to come anywhere near a 5 star rating. At present 3 star would be more realistic. The location is good & staff do a fair job, but it’s not the international business hotel it claims to
