“The latest Hotel Player in Jambi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

I stayed for one night , and I have been travelling to Jambi monthly. Throughout my trips I had sampled many hotel and all of them are managed by locally owned management.
Now with the entry of Aston into Jambi , there will be a future hotel wars in and struck fear into many locally managed hotels.

Since Aston is only a couple months old. Everybody there is literally out in force to please the guests. Many of the employees are trying hard to impress the guests. My encounter with receptionist named Putri, was especially impressive

Being used to "typical abusive" breakfast fares found in most Jambinese hotel, the breakfast I had was three notch higher. Better food and better choices definitely made the morning really good. Except for the coffee, which needs to be improved, a little tad too watery for my taste. Jambi actually has a local kopitiam coffee culture where coffee was strained using sock like filter, I hope Aston can introduce that in the breakfast.

The room is clean , spik and span, as expected because they are brand new. Good selection of cable programs , bloomberg, CNBC , CNN are all there, plus a couple of Asian cable programs.

The only thing needs to be improved are the building materials , the sound proofing especially are too " thin ".

On the day of my stay, there was a gathering of ladies for Tupperware convention in the 2nd floor ballroom, so they turned on loud music and the sound somewhat was heard all the way to my room in 6th floor.
This reminded me of the former Novotel hotel that I had stayed before in downtown Jambi, where loud banging music from the lounge penetrated all the way to the highest floor.

In Aston inside the my room, I could also hear my neighbour's noises from the other neighbouring room. Gee... I hope the other people are not making this hotel for one night stand, the sound proofing is just too thin ! I dont know how the building was constructed but sound is way too easy to travel within the wall.

Another con was the corny Chinese New Year decorations that were put in the lobby. This hotel was owned by a local Chinese businessman , so it is understandable to have the festive ambience as approaching the CNY. However, something must be done to make those decorations more "in line" with the theme of the hotel lobby. It was too cheesy and corny. I hope they can improve by getting CNY decorations which are not obtrusive to the central theme of the lobby.

Overall this is a good hotel for business , I like the introduction of Aston into Jambi and recently there will be another foreign chain hotel will be opening another hotel in town. I am hoping I can make my frequent stay in Aston provided they maintain their service level and not get tug into "mediocrity" which are commonly found in the local run Jambinese hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smoking room, most guests and majority of them smoke. They smoked everywhere ! Actuall...

Still in its soft opening stage, there are few lacking points here and there, however it is probably the best and practical lodging option available in Jambi. It has a nice and breezy outdoor lounge with big screen tv.
