Hotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur
Travel Blogs from Kuala Lumpur
We landed at the LCCT around 8:30am - after a 1km-odd walk from the plane to the airport (!) we got through all the formalities very easily and were on the Air Asia Skybus in an hour or so.
Got to the hotel another hour later but we had to wait until 2pm to check-in. So we walked... and walked... for hours. Picked up a couple of mean …

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur
We only stayed here for 1 night passing through KL into Colombo. This was a good hotel - very central and within walking distance to Bukit Bintang, the monorail, Petronas Twin Towers, etc. Staff were very professional and friendly. Also incredibly helpful at sorting out a cab to the airport at 3am and presenting us with all our options (rather than just recommending we take a hotel cab/car).

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur
It is a nice hotel
I stayed in Hotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur in early March 2006 for 4 nights. On the whole, it is a nice hotel. The price was reasonable, and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable. It is conveniently located (close to monorail station and KLCC). The efficient and helpful staff impressed me very much. When I left the hotel heading for the airport, I needed a large plastic bag for my three boxes of cakes. I asked a hotel staff for help and she tried her very best to look for one for me right away. I find this very impressive and I will definitely recommend this hotel to those who are planning to visit Kuala Lumpur.
Just come back from two seperate stopovers staying at Equatorial on way out and back from New Zealand.
A place to Stay
I had stayed at the EQ in Vietnam and thought I would try this one in KL. I found the staff were very very helpful and the service first rate, the only problem I found was that the B/fast (Buffet) was a little cold each morning. The location of the Hotel is really great, just far enough away from the main shopping area but well within walking distance (10mins). It is a Hotel I will say to people "go there and try it", I will be staying there again shortly, a good place to stay in KL.
We really liked this hotel. When we pulled up, we weren't really sure what we'd be getting - it looks a bit dated from the outside - but it's nice on the inside (only, no seats in the entire lobby - why?? Means you have to stand up when you're waiting for your transport)
In an "OK" location it looks nothing special from the outside. However, on arrival, one is treated with courtesy and efficiency. Room was quite huge. King size bed and above 80msq in size - don't know if they are all like this. Dial up facility in room at low cost to hotel ISP - excellent idea and cheap. Very good leisure facilities and a choice of five restaurants serving quality food at very cheap prices. Breakfast was quite lavish too.Extending checkout was no problem. Everyone was happy and pleasant.
Really great hotel
I was very impressed with this place. The outside isn't very attractive-old front. But the inside is very nice. The rooms are beautiful. A lot of wood accents. Attractive bar and restaurants. Only downside is that the bathrooms are quite small.
The location is very good. 10-15 minute walk to the Petronas Towers. Right in the middle of the golden triangle (lots of restaurants, bars, and shops).
Good value for money
Excellent location. Close to monorail station. Within easy walking distance of the Petronus Towers. Some rooms have good views of the towers. Rooms smaler than some Asia hotels but excellently fitted out. A very comfortable hotel offering good value for money.
