                        I was impressed by the design of the room I stayed in the hotel. The staffs there are polite and nice to me during my stay.

                        Good location, right in the middle of the city, easy excess to all the historic places and nearby to the shopping complex. Very convenient to go around.

                        The location

                        1) The safe in the room was difficult and not "user friendly". Did not respond to commands and I had to get hotel staff to explain and open it. Always a depay of 3 to 5mins to get the safe to accept commands before it would open. They need to install more user friendly safes.2) The swimming pool is a bit run down and they could do a lot more with it.3) Reception staff did not know much about the best restaurants to go to, shopping areas, site seeing, etc. No free detailed maps for tourists available. Management need to improve on this.

                        Staff very helpful on check-in, .. we had booked two rooms but one was not immediately available - and efficient on check-out. Location was not in the thick of the action (like back-packer hostels were) but was convenient to shops. Evenso, I liked how so many historic tourist attractions were accessible on foot, although the roads are a bit dangerous for pedestrians around the rear of the hotel. We didn't need any transport during our entire stay.

                        The cleanliness of the rooms, with no cigarette smell as in many other hotel rooms.

                        Surprisingly, for a hotel of this rating, no porter service was offered during check-in.

                        We had a wonderful stay at Hotel Equatorial Melaka last weekend. I stayed with my mother in an executive club room, and it was pretty much perfect. The room was clean, quiet, and elegantly furnished. The bathroom was beautiful, equipped with both a tub with shower as well as a huge walk-in shower. The staff at the front desk were friendly, helpful, and professional. The location was ideal - near Al Famosa and other tourist attractions. Jonker street and River side walk are only 10 minutes walk from the hotel. They have special arrangements(fast check in/out, drinks, food etc) on 21st floor for club room guests. For those who like to explore good nightlife, this is a place to be since there are lots of pubs, karaoke, discos nearby (Melaka Raya). Highly recommended and will visit again.

                        The location, the cleanliness and facilities of the hotel is what we like about the hotel.

                        I found that the services staff have slack a little in their services as compared to the last two experienced that I have when I stayed in the hotel. I can't say that they are not prompt to service us, but it is just that they do not show the friendliness and warmth that I have experienced previously.

                        The only day curtain in the bedroom is not good enough to block of the lights at night. Have difficult getting to sleep at night.

                        The food. The people. The staff in the hotel was really very good. They were very obliging as our family was very demanding. And yet they serve with smiles always.

                        The pool was bad. It stinks of sewage. The room 1005 door was always jammed. The room 1004 air con was leaking. The food spread for bf was very ordinary. It was not delicious too.

                        The Hotel is at the heart of Malacca Town, Accessibility to surrounding area is just a walking distance...eg...shopping mall,historic portugese fort ,mc donald's restaurant,,,,etc.

                        Walking distant to shopping, food and attraction.

                        There is no lift to carpark! Ground floor was reserve to staff than guest.
