1. Check in is extremely slow, unbelievable. 2. Rooms is medium size. Toilet layout is small and strange. No shaver. Hot water not consistent. Sometimes bath cold water. 3. Bed mattress is very comfortable. 4. Internet whether wifi or LAN cable is extremely slow. 5. Breakfast is lousy. 6. Service is slow. Not sure it's the hotel or Ambon. 7.... More

Rooms were comfortable, location-wise it's quite central. Did not have a pleasant experience checking in though. We would arrive early, after along and tiring day of travelling, and expected we would look forward to "freshen up". In our online booking we therefore requested if it was possible to enter our room before official checkin time. Our room was not ready... More

Sadly, this was not one of my better experiences. The room was large, clean and very comfortable but unfortunately that's where the positives end. An hour wait for check in at 4pm is not good enough, room service was s..l..o..w, the food wasn't even what I ordered (got tuna instead of snapper and tuna isn't even on the menu) and... More

We stayed at the Swiss Belhotel for a week in August. It was a good stay. The rooms are up to a good standard internationally and the hotel has the range of facilities that most well-travelled people expect. The price we paid for the room was probably at the high end for Ambon, but I felt it was quite good... More

This hotel has a strategic location. It's a walking distance to get to some attractions such as the cathedral and monument of peace. Beside that, you can see a beautiful view of the bay Ambon's bay from the bedroom's window. However, there are some quite disappointing things. I was expecting some Moluccan traditional food available at breakfast, but they do... More

Great location, nice rooms. Problems with resto as about half the menu was not available and the staff didn't tell us until after we ordered it. Biggest problem was had a massage and money disappeared from my money belt when I was showering. Absolutely no response from management on the complaint.

Stayed here for 3 nights. It's the nicest in Ambon right now and is at a perfect location, where you can walk to everything or take pedicabs quite easily. However, service is very slow and not very helpful. There is no internet access in any of the rooms, so you have to go to the lobby and it's horribly slow.... More

My first stay at this hotel though have visited Ambon several times. Centrally located but nothing much around it except some local eateries and small sovenir shops. Being new it is quite popular with local businesses holding their seminars etc here. Hence, worth making advance booking to avoid disappointment. Lobby area could get over-crowded when there are events held here... More
