Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Loved the Equator Club room. Overall, good: the room, cleanliness, friendly and helpful staff, buffet breakfast selection, location. Good to see that the elevators is now equipped with an access control system. To consider an auto door at the small entrance (near the staircase to first floor), as my mother is on wheelchair.

It has been probably a decade since I last stayed here and it was pretty exciting to see if anything has changed since. We booked a 1 nighter stay during our short trip to Malacca. Parking is available both open air and sheltered (basement). I found the check in to be a little slow and it took us almost 30...

My main issues for choosing this hotel were balcony, pool and location and the pool was really super, large, 25 m long in a lush garden with big palms. The first night was a bit noisy due to air conditioning below, but I got a new room at poolside the next morning. There was a surprise side effect as I...

May last visit to Hotel Equatorial in Malacca was in the late 90s. Hence this was a nostalgic visit. Despite the numerous concrete buildings around it, the Equatorial has maintained its attractive grand charm. It is near to Jonker Street and the other main tourist attractions...all within walking distance. We took two rooms for a three day stay, and were...

Spent four nights at the Equatorial and enjoyed the Equator Club services, including check in/check out on Level 21 and separate breakfast dining room (much quieter than the restaurant on the ground floor).
