...but today Hotel Equatorial should barely deserve three stars. When you come through the entrance and arrive at reception your impression will be very positive. Staff are available and professional, although proficiency in English language could be better. There are four elevators which will guide you to your room, so there will be no need for any waiting. You will...

It was a last minute plan to Melaka and we managed to get good deal compared to other hotel which is more expensive. Arrived in the evening and the concierge was being helpful since both my kids were sleeping in the car. The lady at the reception counter was being warm and welcoming. Our room is overlooking Melaka town and...

Check in staff were warm and helpful. Room on Level 20 was fine and well renovated. Bed comfortable. Sofa / day bed is lovely. But the bathroom was really lacking. It is strange that the room was obviously refurbished but the bathroom terrible. The shower curtain was mouldy, bathtub old and cracked, shower head dirty and bathroom floor stained. I...

First of all, parking is at basement with no elevators up to the lobby, only stairs. Check in staff are really mediocre at best. Hotel from the outside looks old, dirty and tired as reviewed by others. Upon check in and as you step out of the lift to your rooms, you will be greeted with exceptionally foul smell from...

We were warmly welcomed by the Front Desk and Director of Operations, Mr Habib upon arrival on 29 Apr 17. Mr Habib's constant presence, mingling and talking with guests left an impression of warm hospitality not felt elsewhere. Room 1213 was clean and comfortable with a nice view of the Melaka Straits. On our first night, it took a while...
