“Stylish chain hotel, decent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

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.

It's everything what you expect from a budget hotel..the room was small but clean, the bed was okay. The air conditioning was working perfectly. You can also opt for a smoking or non-smoking room. It's a great option if you just want to stay on a budget for a short business trip to Bogor.

The booking process was easy, no frills, no hassles. There are a small parking area in the basement.

I was booked into the Amaris by my Company for a Business stay.
This is a very basic no frills room, all most people really want is a clean tiday room with Air Conditioning, and this you get.
Its fine for an overnight stay i guess, no room service, not much food, no nothing, but for a Budget Hotel i guess it ticks the boxes.
Not sure i would reccoment this for an Expat to stay, unless it was just a convenient overnight stay.
I have nothing really negative to say about this Hotel, but also nothing positive.
Book this if you are on a Budget and just want somewhere to sleep, if you require or need more then look elsewhere.

I stayed there during a business trip. The hotel offers small, basic, clean room and toilet. The restaurant only has a one page menu with basic food and drinks, e.g. Nasi Goreng and Teh. Breakfast choice is very little, expect only a few local dishes and some bread. Space at the restaurant is very limited, you might have to wait to be seated. The location is not that good, better stay at Santika (affliated with Amaris as well) which is attached to shopping mall. The front desk personnel were polite. I asked for a Bogor map, but they didn't have any. This is a 2 star hotel, but clean and looks new. I would not pay more than IDR 250,000 for one night, or else better fork out a bit more for Santika (better location, room, service)
