Great Deal of Equatorial Hotel, Malacca

I think it is so fortunate for those who lived in around Peninsular Malaysia with all these online great deals where they offers varieties of discount vouchers, coupons and promotions around Peninsular Malaysia only. I hope they can expand to East Malaysia so that more Malaysians can enjoy these great deals and offers.

I signed up to few of these online website ever since I at KL and came across this:


Appear exactly at the right time because I was searching for Malacca hotels through After informed my housemate regarding this deal, there's goes our journey to Malacca. We need to call Equatorial Hotel first in order to check whether our preferred travel date available or not. After being confirmed by their staff, then only can purchase this deal from Groupon. This promotion is only valid from Sunday to Thursday and some of the dates are blackout especially during holiday season.

Since my housemate and I have no class on Monday, so we plan heading down to Malacca on Sunday. Luckily my housemate told me that the bus terminal to Malacca is no more located at Pudu. All this while I still thought at Pudu, but they had changed to Bandar Tasik Selatan. Really no updated one!

By the way, the bus terminal in Bandar Tasik Selatan is so huge and both of us really lost and nearly miss the bus. Thank God manage to get into the bus 3 minutes before the bus depart but I was wondering will Malaysia bus depart exactly on time.

Reached Malacca after 1 hour and 45 minutes journey and we decided to take taxi to Equatorial Hotel because both of us had no idea how to take the domestic bus. The taxi fare cost RM15 which is quite expensive but I guess currently KL taxi also do the same thing. Refused to use meters and charge higher.

Taking this package comes with lots of privileges. Upon check-in, we were being requested proceed to 21st floor for exclusive check-in. For common hotel check-in time is either 2pm or 3 pm but for this, we are allow to check-in the room regardless the time. Nice right?

Regarding the location of this hotel, see from the photo above. Opposite of the hotel (the high building in orange colour) is shopping center such Dataran Pahlawan and Makhota Parada malls. Find the famous mille crepe from Nadeje in Dataran Pahlawan is just few steps away. Not only that, all the famous historical sites such as A'Farmosa Fortress, Christ Church and even the bustling Jonker's Street is all just behind this hotel. Great hotel with great location I can said. I will recommend this hotel to my mom as she always said she wants visit Malacca someday.
