Nice Hotel

The hotel is nice and beautiful but need a new paint for the building. The room look clean and nice, unfortunately I was bitten by bed bugs. No breakfast in a five star hotel.

Family short getaway

Stayed in Deluxe room. Though size of room is quite small but cosy and comfortable, still able to have additional bed. Room price was without breakfast but with free wifi up to 2 devices. I love the wooden shutters - a change from the usual drapes/curtains. Love the towels, all fresh and clean. Hotel room itself is superbly clean. Hotel is closed to Dataran mall and Mahkota parade so all the more easy access to food outlets and other shopping. Staff is all helpful.

Weekend Getaway

Was guided to 21st floor for room check-in as we booked an executive suite. Room was available approx 5 mins after we reached at about 1.30pm. Great service from the staff but I think that they could have helped us deliver our luggages to our room at 7th floor. Room was really very comfortable and huge given the price we paid. However one of the lights was not working and also the wardrobe light was not working as well but they replaced shortly after we called. No issues at all. Room keeping even came into our room twice during the day to replenish bottles of water when we were not around and also we were served fruits. Breakfast at the executive lounge was great but selection could have been more. No egg selection. Food were replenished promptly. Service was good and higher than expected. Having stayed at both Hatten and Equatorial, I would say that Equatorial's serivce is better. However the seating area at lobby could have been wider and more seats. Will definitely make Equatorial my first choice if I were to go to Malacca again.

Family getaway

We travelled with one young child but the king size bedroom was all fully booked. The hotel combined two single beds and upgrade us to Club Room. The room is big with nice pool view, pretty clean and all maintaining well. The staffs from reception and house keeping are friendly, check-in and check-out are efficient and accurate. We certainly will come back again and book the same brand chain.

Good location

We arrived at 2pm and were granted early check in. Check in was quick and fuss-free. This hotel is opposite the shopping centre and walking distance to Jonker street (15min). There are parking space on the ground level and at B1 and B2. We understand from the security that there are cameras installed at the carpark and is safer to park at the basement . This is better than Hatten Hotel where parking space is shared with shoppers.
