This is one of those modern hotels with large rooms and all facilities. No problem with that. It’s very centrally located and in the street with all the restaurants and the local Kwe Tae Sapi speciality (right across). The hotel's restaurant has a good offer and correctly priced. If you want to stroll around or do a last-minute buy, this... More

Room is very standard, clean enough, breakfast has some varieties. Been coming back to this hotel 3 times because of its strategic city center location, very easy to find local foods n snacks within walking distance.

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... More

Gajah Mada Hotel is located in the city centre. You can reach supermarket, traditional market etc by walking distance. The room is clean and bis enough with the standard value. Staffs are helpfull. one thing that they need to improve is breakfast menu. The menu is too limitted and the taste is so so.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Room was okay, clean and spacious. It's a 3-star hotel so didn't expect much. Room comes with breakfast, which is a plus as it'll be quite difficult to get a proper coffee shop/ stalls selling breakfast around that area. The staff is very helpful, and conversant in English, though not all of them.... More
