... fine, but we rode in the Eksekutif class, so we can't say what 3rd class is like. Although our taxi driver assured us that he knew where our hotel was, we did hear him ask his dispatch three times over his radio. Directly in front of our hotel was a park which was a nightly hangout and meeting spot for the locals apparently. We have never seen so many scooters and small motorbikes before. What we did not see from the satay stands to the vendors to the busy skatepark were any ...
... forklifts and trucks. There is nowhere to sit so I finally just lie down on the filthy cement using my helmet as a pillow and get about 20 mins sleep before being asked by yet another young man, " hello mister where are you coming from?" This is a warm up to questions about the bike, my family my age, where I am going and why, and can they please take a photo of my bike? The replies are then translated to all and sundry who have gathered round and much discussion is ...
... of a boutique hotel really. The facilities were amazing, the quality for the money was unrivalled in pretty much every other place we have stayed, but it was out of town. It was impossible to see how they could stay in business.
We showered and decided to look for somewhere for arrival beers and food as we hadn't eaten since breakfast. We wandered out of the gates and onto the main road, but that was where it all went a bit wrong. The ...

Great location, near to everywhere. Friendly staff and great service. The facilities are decent, but some furniture are worn out. The air conditioner was not working well. Cleanliness could be improved as well. No wi-fi access from the room, guests have to go to the lobby to get wi-fi access. Nothing special about the breakfast buffet, no western food... but great fried rice. I'd recommend this hotel to travellers like me who don't stay much in the hotel - who uses the hotel only to put stuff, shower and sleep, because of its great location.
