I stayed at Equatorial Melaka for 2 nights from 24 to 26 March 2017. As several other large hotels have opened around Equatorial Melaka since the last time I stayed there, I spent some time online reviewing the new hotels (who doesn't, right?) before deciding on Equatorial once again. I chose the Club Room this time and found it's a...

The huge number of hotels including the new ones can be a spoiler when choosing accomodation in Melaka. Not the first time staying in Equatorial Malacca, but the first time staying in the Equator Club and it was an excellent choice for my family for a short 3D2N final days of school 1week break. To start with, a special check...

Friendly staff,clean room. Near to Dataran Pahlawan,just walk from hotel to Dataran and 15min walk to Jonker. Check in at 3pm. The food is average,nothing special. No lift from car park to lobby,you need to drop your bag first before going to car park.

We stayed for six nights in an Equator Club room which provides breakfast and evening "nibbles" in the 21st floor Club facility which has recently been extended and is much improved on the old Equator Club. The quality of service throughout the hotel was first class with friendly and helpful staff. We particularly enjoyed the pool!

The room was huge and clean Most importantly it is strategically located. It is about 15 minutes walk to the historical attractions and another 15 minutes walk the opposite way to the famous satay celup.

Having just spent the weekend in Melaka, the hotel equatorial was old but pleasant enough for a weekend, don't think I would stay longer! Staff friendly, breakfast was good (down stairs better than upstairs) and location was great. The room itself was a good size, bathroom old and a bit mouldy - actually seems the whole hotel has a water...

We booked two Equator Club rooms during the school holidays. The rooms were spacious with comfy beds, great corner views, and large bathroom. The hotel and rooms smell really nice and spa like. Will come again.
