We stayed here on our way to see the orang-utans and booked the middle category of room which meant we thankfully didn't face onto the road or the shopping mall. However a note on the table alerted us that they were doing renovation works and the noise would stop at 6. On the way out I checked and they said actually 5.30pm. But at 7.15pm the banging was still going on, we wanted to sleep as we were getting up very early to see the floating market. 30 minutes later I asked again by phone and they promised me it would stop. 20 mins later I had to go to reception in my PJs a little bit irate. I spoke to the manager and his staff translated - and thankfully it then stopped. Good breakfast and the mall and supermarket over the road are handy. Our room looked like it had already been refurbished and although it was small. then the house phone down the corridor kept ringing several times unanswered and I had to get up and take it off the hook. Nobody said anything about the noise episode when we checked out, no apology.
The hotel arranged a private boat tour of the floating market for us which was wonderful. You step out of the hotel into a boat - great. We also visited the space ship like mosque and the Chinese temples. Other than that there's not much to see.
