This hotel proved to be a good choice for an overnight stay in Melaka as it was in a very convenient location. Our Club room was spacious. It was on the 19th floor and having small terraces on two sides, benefitted from really good views of the city and the sea.
The bathroom was roomy and well equipped. The only downside was the fact that one of the electrical circuits in the room was faulty which meant that the hairdryer, kettle and television didn't work. We managed to find a socket that worked for the kettle, not so the hairdryer and TV despite the maintenance staff's best efforts. That said we were only there for one night and couldn't be bothered to change rooms. The young man on the Club reception desk was very apologetic and I think it was just one of those things! On a positive note the breakfast on offer in the Club lounge was very good indeed!

Room Tip: The higher the better for a good view!

The heartbeat of equatorial seems great. Good staff. Everyone greets the guests and this gives you a warm vibe. However facilities do seem a little old though well maintained. Maybe shower curtains could be cleaned or changed. We had a early check in and a premier room. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks!

This is the n third stay at this hotel and the staff are extremely helpful and very polite. the Gym is OK but lacks certain equipment that should be standard in any gym like abb benches, chin up bar etc.

The hotel is located in the middle of Melaka and it easy to get around town and see some of the old town. It is well worth doing the river trip and a trip on the illuminated bikes. The food in Malaysia is always awesome especially the street food. That said the hotel restaurant was more expensive but the food was superb.

I always enjoy my time in Melaka and it is a lovely part of the world, and the Equatorial is well worth the visit. The cleanliness was excellent and the service is very good.

What a nice cheap realaxing stay just another example of value in melaka. Club room which is something like a penthouse suite with 2 balconys private or public breakfast pools gyms ect clean and nice people and staff. For around 150 aussy dollars a night cant beat that. High recommendation. Hard to beat.

Stayed for 2 nights in 2 connected deluxe rooms. It was comfortable and spacious. The rooms have basic amenities and the mini bar is empty unless u request for a TOP up. So it's just an empty refrigerator which I placed all the drinks that I bought from the nearby supermarket. There is also a 24-hour restaurant in front of the hotel and MA Donald's is just a few steps away. The hotel seems dated but I see the effort in sprucing up the place. The staff is friendly and is always greeting u with a smile. The pool was not bad but I think the bar is no longer in operation. The floor is a bit slippery after the rain.

Overall, I'm satisfied with this hotel but it just needs a proper traffic crossing at the front of the hotel.
