After visiting Tanjang Puting national park we stayed over in Pangkalan Bun for two nights.
We were originally shown to a standard double which was cell-like and the room with a tiny window set about eight feet up in the wall. The room was just larger than a double bed.
We opted for a deluxe room with featured two single beds, a larger floor space and bathroom of sorts. Perhaps displaying my cultural ignorance I was surprised by a lack of sink in the room or much in the way of comfort. Instead, there is a mandi (large water container to scoop out water from), a cold water shower and a western style loo.
To be fair, this hotel is probably fairly standard for a little town like Pangkalan Bun and I would only recommend it as there is probably no where better in town. It's a bed for the night but not much else.
