I can't say anything about the rooms or experince in staying at this hotel since I live in Pontianak. I've tried The Roof, the one on the 4th floor. It's actually quite nice except for a few things, people smokes in there and it's loud since they have a "DJ" inside. A bit hard to chat really, so if you...

If you want to stroll around or do a last-minute buy, this...

Been coming back and forth to this hotel since it first opened years ago. Can see the hotel amenities are getting old although there are some major renovations on going to upgrade. Some of the rooms has weird smells, I think it is from the carpets. I recently stayed in one of the suites room, was feeling reluctant to hang...

“Choose rooms more towards the front end, usually gets less noisy and less cigarettes smells at night. Make sure to ask the hotel staffs for non smoking room as this hotel allowed people to smoke inside the room.”
