“Nice Hotel in Palangkaraya”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

New Hotel, nice staff, and nice room.
Less activity. Only Swimming Pool available.
You have to pay IDR.5.000 for playstation2 rent on games room

But so far its fine for us.
We'll stay here again next time.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

Stay there for business trip at May 2013.
The hotel are clean and new. Room are clean, nice bed and shower.
Check in are fast and convenient.
The most positive thing about this hotel is the pool, imagine you can relax for a bit from a hot city in Kalimantan, is a very luxurious things.
Pool are big and clean, and makes you want to stay all day at the pool.
Breakfast is standard, they serve tradiotional food like lontong sayur, but I think the traditional menu must be more to be serve.
overall this hotel is the best hotel in the city

Room Tip: Choose a direct access pool room

- Spent one night in a "no-view" room and one night in a "poolside" room in June 2013
- My breakfast that was ordered to the room arrived in a cardboard box 45 minutes late
- The hotel forgot to return parts of my deposit and it had to be transferred to me at a later date
- This hotel is by far better than Luwansa, but I am not sure about the rooms in Aquarius (have visited Aquarius several times, but not stayed)
- My receipt was wrong and I had to call and have a proper receipt emailed to me a week later
- I will be returning to this hotel as it is still the best in Palangkaraya to my knowledge... Hopefully they can improve on several points

Room Tip: No View truly means no-view. Poolside rooms are few, but very practical.

I stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights in May 2013 and was very impressed with the quality of service and overall standards of the hotel.In fact this is the best Swiss Bel Hotel I have stayed in,and i have stayed in many.
The pool is a real haven from the heat of this area,and the rooms very clean and comfortable.
Without doubt great value money,this hotel will not dissapoint.
Very well managed and the staff really try and do the right thing.
Only complaint was they did not have the spa operating and so no massage.

As other reviewers have already noted - this hotel is a little bit further out. However, that's not really an issue considering traffic jams don't happen in this town (yet). It takes about 20 minutes from the airport.

The hotel is clean and with english speaking staff.

The rooms are all new - so everything works perfectly and looks good. The bed is really comfortable with nice new sheets and pillows and the TV channel list is super extensive.

The bathroom has a power shower with working hot water on demand (not always the case outside of Jakarta). Note that there is no hair-dryer.

Internet is free and had adequate speeds.

Food is good. The buffet breakfast is good quality and room service quality is good and sometimes surprising (deconstructed gado gado salad!), but there are some misses in the menu.

The one downside is the front-desk service which needs some tweaking:
- They won't let you check-in when there are no rooms ready (not even register your arrival or take your credit card) - so if you come back after meetings etc, potentially you could lose your booking when the hotel is super busy unless you have pre-purchased your room or paid a cash deposit
- At check-out they process your credit card before you check the bill - if there are any issues this could cause some delays while they re-do the transactions

Overall, would be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, ask for rooms facing away from the main road.

Eventhough the location a bit out of town but I pick this hotel any day.
It only take about 30 minutes from airport and cost at 60.000 by cab.

It's a big hotel with very nice lobby, room and facility. the welcoming staff is also very charming in a way.
Quick check in process and informative.

the room itself isn't big but surely adequate. Nice clean comfy. Strong water power. Nice smell. Very good to have your work done here.

Breakfast was simply awesomn it's power breakfast indeed. Love it.

So going back here again. Other hotel won't compare specially on their weekend price promotion. Their quality wins it all.

As usual, after entering the room in hotel, I would check about the availability of internet connection :). I found there was jack for internet on the table but I did not find the cable. I rang the costumer service regarding internet connection. She said that there was wireless internet in this hotel. She gave me the user name and password. The connection was reliable.

I rang the costumer service for prayer mat. Less than three minutes, the prayer mat has come.

In the morning I asked about prayer room, they show me the prayer room at first floor. The prayer room was clean and did not smelly.

Bathroom really comfortable, they provided everything we need there.
