2D1N stay. Chose Equatorial as it was the most centrally located and the ONLY hotel after research that allows an extra rollaway bed for about RM99. Meaning 3 to a room. The rest of better hotels are not quite walking distance to the newer malls in the heart of town. Website says its 5 mins away from the famous Jonker...

Hotel Equatorial in Melaka has been around for a while now. It's my return visit to the hotel after at least a good 8-10 years and I must say the hotel still retains its charm. The hotel boasts the standard facilities - gym, spa, coffeehouse, swimming pool, accompanied with adequate number of function halls. While newer hotels have sprouted in...

The hotel location is unbeatable. 5 mins to malls/ restaurants, 8 mins to historical sites/ attractions. We managed to get around the must-see-places in Malacca by foot with our 3 boys aged 1-8 which was quite an achievement for us! Yes, it needs some refurbishment (musty odor from carpet at the corridors). We stayed in the Club Room, very spacious...

The property is showing its age, but the enthusiastic staff really made a difference in this trip. We stayed in the Club floor which had a huge outdoor patio at the top of the building. The pool was nice and huge and close to the attractions of Malacca. We also had access to lots of movies on demand free!
