Hotel Equatorial Melaka
Ranked #15 of 168 Hotels in Melaka
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Nice hotel. I was there during the World Cup and could catch games at their alfresco bar with a big screen. Rooms are nice and spacious and not much to complain about. Location is great too as it's right next to the shopping mall and street with eateries, within 10-15mins walk of Jonker St too. Breakfast served at the hotel is great too. Only complaint is that the hotel is a stand-alone building so it can become a hassle to go out if it rains.

This is not my first time staying in Equatorial Hotel in Melaka, each time I stay they never fail me, all staff surrounding are helpful. It one of the great hotel in Melaka town that I strongly suggest. Hotel room clean, facilities complete. The food is brilliant, all my family members satisfy& able to hunt what they want to have.

But suggest that have a kid play room rather than a small corner in the restaurant and lack of parking =P

Equatorial, I'll be back.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Club room, extra space & view ^_^

Two couples went away for a week from Australia. Melaka was perfect and a week was the perfect time in Melaka. Easy taxi ride from KLIA. The hotel Equatorial was a comfortable base to stay. The foyer was grand with beautiful floral decorations. The desk staff were polite & helpful, we had to remind the bell boys to bring up our suitcases but that was ok. Food in the cafe, in the lounge and in the restaurant was good quality and the nonya cooking class was well run & fun. The rooms were large and clean, no mini bar and a very small amount of coffee & tea (no milk) however with 7eleven across the road, we just bought our own supplies. The pool is lovely and large with different areas for children. The gym was small but clean & enough equipment. The hotel was in a great location, across from a large mall and down the road from Jonker street. Easy to get to shops, restaurants and attractions.

Stayed: May 2014

This hotel is my favourite in Malacca and my husband and I are frequent guests. As always, we were there for a short relaxation however, this time during the June holidays. We were taken aback by the sight of people using the pool fully clothed and at one time, I saw one of the ladies spat into the flower bed, I am not sure if she also spat into the pool and kept hearing her clear her throat. Instead of using the children's pool, the mothers of some were using the adult pool teaching babies swimming. The pool attendant should be more vigilant when there is a huge crowd using the pool and perhaps supervise to ensure the pool is not misused. Needless to say, I left the pool as quickly as possible.
