The receptionist isn't so smart because they took a long time to give us the proper room. Actually the room is spacious and nice, although the bathroom is quite old and not so clean.. Overall, it's not like the entrance door which would makes you think it's one of the best hotel in Jambi. It's the opposite :) Anyway, you... More

This used to be Novotel Jambi before the owner took it on his own hands to run the hotel. He hasn't been quite successfull, though. The only things that make this hotel booked are its location and the size of its rooms. It's centrally located, the rooms are spacious, but really, really gloomy! I couldn't read properly in the room... More

The location is perfect, right in the middle of Jambi business area.. The receptionists were very friendly and gave me fast and hassle-free check-in and check-out service. They gave me a non-smoking room on the 8th floor. Thou when I walked on the hallway to my room, I still smelled cigarette smoke. The room was quite spacious with mixed of... More

It was much better when it run buy the Novotel (Accor Group). The location is the most valuable advantage. Lack of maintenance make this hotel looks dull. The smoking room is terrible. It was still smelly with nicotine odor when I first entered the room. The carpet full of burnt dot from the cigarette ember. Yes, it has Pizza Hut... More

Strategic location, near central business, service and food are good enough. Room need to be improved. Sometimes has a problem with electricity. Room maintenance is below average. They have pizza hut and department store in the same building.

Strategic location is this hotel's main advantage, which make this hotel a primary choice for business accommodation in Jambi. The rooms are big and convenient. However maintenance of rooms are mediocre. Some of the lighting fixtures are difficult to operate. Services generally need improvement. I believe this hotel was once operated by international hotel chain but unfortunately the hospitality was... More

The room was fine, nothing special some stains on the side of the sheet, basic bathroom but with plenty of amenities like laundry detergent. I stayed here for eight days for work. Very few staff speak English but they try to understand what you need. The laundry service is good value for a hotel (they send it out). The breakfast... More

15 minutes drive from the Airport - Sultan Thaha. Matahari Departmental store at the back part of the hotel building. Pizza Hut just outside the hotel. 15 - 20 minutes walk to the nearest mall - WTC. Stayed at the Deluxe non smoking room on level 10. Had a good view of the city. Rooms pretty ok but the toilet... More

At first we booked Wiltop Hotel Jambi for our business trip, but than we were recommended to stay at Novita by our office partner in Jambi. So we cancelled our reservation at Wiltop and booked one single bed and three double bed rooms by phone. When we checked in, they gave us three single bed rooms and one double bed... More
