The room was huge and clean Most importantly it is strategically located. It is about 15 minutes walk to the historical attractions and another 15 minutes walk the opposite way to the famous satay celup.

Staff friendly, breakfast was good (down stairs better than upstairs) and location was great. The room itself was a good size, bathroom old and a bit mouldy - actually seems the whole hotel has a water...

We booked two Equator Club rooms during the school holidays. The rooms were spacious with comfy beds, great corner views, and large bathroom. The hotel and rooms smell really nice and spa like. Will come again.
