Hotel Equatorial Melaka, Malacca, Malaysia
Hotel Equatorial Older a Style but Top Service
Apart from a few minor electrical hitches our stay at the Equatorial was outstanding. The Equatorial Club added a new dimension to our holidaying. The pre dinner aperitifs and appetisers were most welcome and the service was always friendly and immaculate. The bed we shared was the most comfortable of all the hotels we have visited this holiday and we had to be wakened by an alarm to make breakfast. Meals were excellent
