We spent three nights at the Equatorial and really enjoyed our stay. Although getting there from the Laoshan Maglev stop was challenging, it is a short stroll on the overhead bypass to reach the Jig’nan Temple metro and shopping arcade. Tranquil settings and typical Chinese breakfast - not much spoken English, however this was adequate to make our stay enjoyable. We managed to find an authentic Indian restaurant- Kaveen’s across the road, and this gave us our dose of spice in the cold 3 degree C weather. Using the metro was easy and we then opted for the Big Bus hop on bus to see the city sights, including the Bund, Peoples Square and other highlights

Room Tip: We chose a room in the higher floor to get a view of the city

Stayed here for 2 nights. Did not expect anything since i’m not familiar with the hotel. Checked in and out was fast. Service was great. Breakfast is ok. Location is really good. Close to subway and there are nearby malls. Beside the hotel, there is a Lawson. Tried there gym and pool and it was great. Overall, would definitely go back and recommend this hotel.

The hotel is in Jig'nan Temple area, happening place with shopping , restaurants, nearby metro station and a bus station from where you can go to the airport or from airport to this place in 22 Yuan.
The rooms are good. i stayed twice in a week, 1st time the room was a bit small but quiet.
2nd time when i checked-in, they gave a free upgrade , the room and bathroom are very big, only thing, it is roadside so continuous noise of cars.
Good property , best location

The location is not the best -yet not far from downtown, you need to get a taxi though -and the hotel is quite average for a business trip. I can't highlight anything special -rooms, breakfast, and so on - from my stay but the staff -they were fluent in English, and willing to help -and the impressive views from my room. The fare was ok for what the hotel offered.

This hotel have superb rooms, comfortable bed, clean and nice enviroment. The staff is helpful and you can feel yourself there very well. In the evening is smart to have little walk arond, the skyscpers are extreamly nice in the night.
