I don't quite like the first impression as you stepped in the lobby, it was OK but not the Aston standard that I wish for, service was OK but not outstanding. I'm totally fine with the room, the breakfast, the swimming pool. It s the location that turned me down during the whole stay, though it is in the city... More

Garden Loundge should be a non smoking area as its an indoor area with full of mosquitoes. Fridays and Weekends are not pleasant for guest staying on level 5, loud music thoroughout the day until...

This is a nice hotel.. the rooms are clean and I prefer the spacious superior room (48 m2). The lobby needs some makeover because it gets a little out of time, also the lifts to the parking garages needs some paint. The breakfast is very nice but Indonesian orientated. Overall good, good dim sum and nice people who work there.... More

This was my second business trip to Pontianak. Having previously stayed at the Mercure, we were really disappointed with that Hotel and vowed to try the Aston for our next trip. True indeed, the Aston is miles ahead of the Mercure in Pontianak. Setback some 200m away from the Jalan Gajah Mada (Chinatown area) main busy road, this Hotel was... More

This is my first staying at Aston Pontianak and was booked in Executive Room. Executive Room is an oversized room having a lounge seating area with sofas. Room amenities are standard of Aston and simply has everything you need in working conditions. Location is good. If you fancy a local coffee shop with Pontianak specialty of fried banana, then you...

This hotel was a great find. Everything was perfect. Lovely food in the Chinese restaurant and very friendly staff. The general manager was particularly friendly and helpful and chatted to us whenever he saw us. Great location in downtown Pontianak. Definitely a 'must stay' when you visit Pontianak !
