We stayed 1 night at this hotel after doing a 3D/2N klotok river tour and thought that we might need to stay at a luxurious hotel after roughing it out on boat for 2 nights. But found out that the river tour wasn't as rough as we expected and once inside the hotel it felt that we were in a... More

Compared to other hotels this really, does not meet up to it 3 stars. Rooms are clean, you have a free wifi. But the spa, seeing the uninterested face of the girls when I asked for a treatment, no I changed my mind instantly. Check in at reception went slow, receptionist could hardly speak English, so I had to use... More

Staying away from home on business purposes during peak festive holiday travels, put us on limited options. Then opted to stay in closer range to the heart of Pangkalan Bun, yet still giving shade for some enviro trips (to release some turtles, to learn more on orangutans) became unforgettable experience. A night stay extended into two due to considerably yummy... More

After a series of dodgy budget hotels, and a few nights on the river boat, we booked this place for a bit of a treat. It is certainly a LOT better than a budget option, and, as my husband kept saying, "We are in Borneo, you know!" So, given the remote location, we think this was very good. The room... More

The newest hotel in town, clean room and nice. The service was good. Also the breakfast was very good. The minus thing only we can heard someone next door even the sound of TV, and the hotel location to far from town or airport.

We arrived looking forward to a pleasant shower; however, the water was cold both in the evening and again in the morning! Extremely poor and simply no excuse for this. The meals were very average and when we asked if there was another restaurant nearby we were told there wasn’t. The next morning air crew staff advised us they eat... More

This was a functional but perhaps rather drab and concretey hotel, although arguably the best in Pangkalan Bun. It seems to be on the outskirts of town as it’s a fair way from the Borneo Mall which is a new looking shopping centre....though tiny by European and US standards. It looks more like a large hypermarket you.d find in France.... More

Very comforable room and well equipped room and friendly staff. Bed comfortable and room very clean and fresh. This was let down by 2 factors. First, the bathroom had mould around the shower and an enormous but dodgy showerhead. Second, no response to repeated phone calls to room service and eventually had to go and find someone. Huge function going... More

The rooms were clean and modern for Indonesia. We have stayed in many lower price hotels and inns in Indonesia that had much better service. It took 3 attempts and waiting over an hour and a half to get a simple room service order. The pool was literally green with algae and looked like it hadnt been cleaned in weeks.... More
