Travellers Hotel Sentani
Ranked #12 of 17 Hotels in Jayapura
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We stayed twice at TRAVELLERs on our trip to/from Nabire, Papua. Located just 5 minutes from Jayapura-Sentani airport it is ideal for a short stopover.
Rooms are very spacious, spotless clean, AC, fridge, wireless internett (slow). Ask for 3rd or 4th floor on the mountain view side.
Big bathroom w shower. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is 99% Indonesian. Do not expect any bacon or ham. Good fruit and juice selection.
Free pickup from the airport. To take you to the airport they charge only 3$.
When you make reservation just make sure they confirm, which can be a little huzzle.
All in all it is definitively worth the 90$ for 2 incl. breakfast and nice filled fridge with compl. drinks and snacks.

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor on the mountain side

Compared to the surroundings in Sentani, this hotel was almost too good to be true. The lobby, the rooms and the pool area were amazing. You would think you could find such a hotel in Bali, but not in Sentani. I would say this is a 4+ star hotel to a very affordable price. They had a good selection of Indonesian and English TV Channels and breakfast was standard. The Spa looked very nice, but was highly priced.

After 5 weeks and 14 hotels, this is a welcome comfort! Room is spacious and very comfortable. The desk is great for work. The pool is gorgeous, food is good, decent selection of TV channels and the AC works well. The breakfast buffet is standard for a good hotel. Why fruit and veg selection is so sparse in the tropics is beyond me. Always the same tasteless papaya and watermelon, boiled frozen veg salad. The internet cuts out frequently and was unavailable all yesterday. The gym is flashy and full of young, helpful happy people. The staff are very sweet, just a bit slow. Everything takes time - so be warned and slow down to suit it. Makes for a very nice experience.

Brand new, with swimming pool, fantastic breakfast. If you land in Sentani, instead of heading straight to Jayapura city, where you are not going to find a hotel of this calibre, why not stay at the Travellers? It's not cheap, but, for what it offers, it is not expensive either. For me, it was an excellent way of recovering from the gruelling trip from Jayapura.

I stayed for a night with friends, transit place before my flight back the next morning.

my first impression of the hotel was clean and neatly placed. the staffs were friendly and checking in was easy, they also showed us how to operate the elevator (because using room key for activated the elevator is quite new in sentani)

we got ourselves a welcome drinks and free fruit platter. nice sentani street view from our room window.

the down side were we got a semi broken bathroom door handle, they just tape it with a ductape and because all of the security, my friends couldn't open the safe deposit box (deposit box also use your room key as ke also) the tech guy got really confused at the beginning but they finally found a way to open it.

One of the limited hotels in Jayapura that has good facilities. I was told it was the only 5-star hotel in the city.

Room is spacious, bed & pillows are comfy for a good sleep, service of staff is good. Overall a good hotel to stay with good facilities (pool, restaurant, mini-bar, etc).

Located in Sentani, its only a 5 minute drive from the airport (pick-up & drop-off service provided by the hotel) to the hotel. Its not recommended for people with work-purpose in Jayapura as its a 45-60 minute drive to downtown Jayapura. However, the road heading towards Jayapura has one of the best scenic views. Be sure to bring along a good camera to capture the marvellous views of the hills, Sentani lake & Pacific ocean. Transport can be acquired from the hotel, however hiring a private car (with driver) is a more economical option to go sightseeing.

The only minus point is the limited variety of an international breakfast buffet. The lunch/dinner menu in the restaurant is also limited & just below average. Expected better variety & quality. But the 'Ayam Panggang Jawara' is one of the best grilled chicken I've ever enjoyed, especially with the chilli that comes alongwith.

Wireless internet provided free in the rooms. An important facility for business travellers.

The Travellers Hotel at Sentani is located 5 minutes from Jayapura Airport (DJJ), which is about 40 km from the main Jayapura town. Great if you're looking for a transit hotel, quite a drive if you have things to do in Jayapura town.

This hotel is a 2 minute walk to a small mall. Meals and provisions are not a problem as the mall has plenty of small fast food restaurants as well as a department store, a couple of small sports shops, as well as a supermarket.

Despite just walking in without reservations, the check in process was smooth and the staff welcoming. The hotel itself has an OK restaurant which is fine for breakfast for a couple of days, with lunch and dinner slightly below average.

There is a small pool with a bar & open air restaurant on the second floor.

The rooms are wonderful. Having spent the previous 2 nights in the jungles of Papua, the very comfortable bed, soft sheets, clean bathroom and warm shower were welcomed luxuries.

Laundry service was also wonderful, with my clothes getting back to me within 4 hours, and with no additional charges.

Wireless internet access was available for free (part of my room package), but slow - fine for e-mails and low size use.

Having driven around the Sentani area the following day, it would appear that This is the best hotel around the DJJ airport area, and I've no hesitation recommending it.

Room Tip: I stayed on the third floor, no problems with noise etc.
