CLASSICS STAND TEST OF TIME
The Star Online – A day before Nipah Coffee Shop at the old Equatorial Kuala Lumpur was closed down in 2012 for the grand makeover that would see the hotel being rebranded as EQ, someone having high tea there remarked if things would ever be the same again after they reopened.
EQ’S ALL-DAY DINING RESTAURANT HAS AN AMAZING LUNCH BUFFET (AT A JAW-DROPPING PRICE)
Buro 24/7 – EQ is KL’s most anticipated hotel opening of the year. Formerly known as Equatorial Hotel KL, it has since been stripped down completely, rebuilt and rebranded. But even with a new, shiny look, it’s no stranger. One of the features that EQ has kept is its all-day dining restaurant, Nipah. As an excuse to properly check out the hotel in the flesh, we headed over for lunch and though we walked away with a tummy full and satisfied, we also realised Nipah is set to have one of the best buffets in KL.

HOTEL EQUATORIAL KL IS NOW EQ HOTEL – HERE’S YOUR FIRST LOOK
Buro 24/7 – There is a joke that to remember the name Hotel Equatorial Kuala Lumpur is to reveal your age. Of course, it wasn’t popular without a reason. From the day it opened in 1973 till the day it ceased operations on April 1, 2012, the 5-star hotel was practically a household name and one of the major landmarks of the city for almost four decades.
