We stayed at the Equatorial in adjoining rooms, one for our three kids and one for us. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with a rather funky graet windowseat as big as a bed on which we could lounge and gaze over the view. Sadly the view was of a hotel that was either unfinished or had been burned out for isnurance, I guess, which gave our stay more of a Beirut feel than a UNESCO World Heritage City feel. The Equatorial is also in the modern shopping district of Melaka rather than the old cultural heart with the river and Jonkers Street. But it wins on the quality of breakfast and the overall feel of luxury living and a pretty affordable price. The pool is an added bonus, with palm trees and places for the kids to splash - and it is on the other side of the hotel from the beirut-bomb-out, which means the view is OK.
