Our stay in this hotel was arranged through Borneo Eco Tours and after reading some of the reviews I was apprehensive about the accommodation. Thus when I arrived to find it comparable to a Travelodge in UK it was a reassuring surprise. My room was clean and pleasant enough. It had a fridge, which made more noise than the air con. There was an ironing room, a cheap and efficient laundry service and safe boxes available in reception. I found the staff helpful and polite. The breakfast was adequate, especially as it catered for diverse national tastes, and I did not experience the 'scrum' mentioned in one review. On the day we left at 5.30 we were surprised to find that the restaurant had opened early to accommodate this.
The main disappointment was that wi-fi was not available in the rooms and there was very little seating in the reception/lounge area where it was freely available. Apart from this I was very satisfied with this reasonably price hotel.
