As others have pointed out, it is a fairly basic, chain hotel, but I beg to differ with the "damning with faint praise" tone of the previous reviews. I found the room spacious, clean, and stylish (in the cookie-cutter Amaris motif), and as a bonus, my room faced the botanical gardens (you may just face the inner courtyard, though). The location is good: close to the weekends/holidays entrance to the gardens, and less than a 10-minute walk to the Botani Square shopping mall. I found breakfast was delicious and plentiful. True, if you only stick to western breakfast options, all you get is toast with spread or scrambled eggs-on-toast. But, I found the Indonesian options quite delicious, and they change every day. Surprisingly, no maps or tourist info is available at the front desk, but the staff is friendly and helpful. Perhaps it's a tad expensive by Indonesian standards, but accommodation in Bogor is expensive I'm told, with very few budget options easily accessible: other than the botanical gardens, not many tourist sights in Bogor.
