Choices in this town are few, and at the time of my stay back in May this was the best available hotel. I think that a new more modern hotel has recently opened. This was just a one night stop for our group after 3 nights in Tanjung Puting National Park. So, we were excited to find such 'luxury' after 3 days in the jungle. The lobby is 4 star and the rooms are 3.5 star, but all was great. The staff were wonderful and helpful. There are 2 floors of rooms, but no elevator. Not a problem, as porters can assist with the luggage.
Rooms have TV and A/C, and the bathrooms came with all the usual toiletries. Free WiFi in the lobby, and cold drinks in the minibar (no alcohol). There are some market shops just outside if you need to buy food / snacks / water / etc. This place is also not a far walk from the center where there are a couple of decent restaurants (though I never had time to try them out).
There is a school next door, so you will not be able to sleep in past 8am as the roll call and announcements begin. But, this did not seem to bother anyone in our group. The hotel restaurant is downstairs, and not very attractive! BUT, they arranged an excellent dinner for my group.. so I give this place 'thumbs up'. All in all we had a great stay!
