Hotel Aryaduta Palembang (Palembang, Sumatra, Indonesia)

4 Case Rating


Location

Located in business area of Palembang, around 30-40 minutes from main airport. Location is fairly good, a major shopping mall with over 100 shops hundred next door, plus a major hospital. For tourism not much to do but interesting walking around shops although very busy and quite easy to get lost.

Room

Stayed in one of the suites on the 17th floor that offers 3 suites on whole floor with executive lounge for these suites which offers some free snacks such as spring rolls, fruit and cakes, free drinks including beer, large TV and open WIFI which was free. Unnecessarily large room for one person but company doing business for covered so not sure what it cost. The room offered is a small apartment size with a living room that contained a bar, kitchen sink, fridges, large couch area with 6 seats, large flat screen TV (50′ plus)in this room, a guest toilet and shower cubicle also and working desk. The main bedroom offered a ensuite huge bathroom with bath tub and separate shower cubicles & include a full set of all hotel branded amenities in both toilets. The main bedroom offered a large comfortable bed although pillows were not that comfortable but with also a large (at least 42′-50′ ) TV in front of bed, selection of channels was excellent for any nationality – full satellite and maybe over 100+ channels of known brands like HBO, discovery, FOX, BBC etc.. One of the best seen in Asia. There was also a separate room for a wardrobe and desk. The decor was nice with a mix of modern and traditional artwork and quite Muslim themed with direction sign of Mecca on ceiling and prayer set and mat. Plenty of plugs -all 2 pin shaver except on desk in living room which had 2 English plugs. All other areas used two pin plugs. There was no plugs by the main bed but in front a high tech iPhone docking station alarm clock just below the huge TV. The room also offered a camera doorbell which can be seen in bedroom – presumably for serious VIPs to see who is at the door.

Facilities

WIFI was provided free of charge (however not sure for normal rooms) it worked sporadically though but once connected was adequately fast. There is a lounge bar and a restaurant. Ordered a steak which was from Australia and very nice. The breakfast is adequate with an egg station and buffet of much Indonesian choices (which was quite nice albeit spicy). There is also a spa, modern gym and pool on the 3rd floor. The massage prices were fairly cheap (£15 per hour) but did not use. Pool looked nice and is outside but did not use due to time. Gym is large and modern and offers huge boxing bag.

Staff

Staff again were very nice as all Indonesians are, honest and cannot fault in any area.
Overall had an amazing room so probably unfair review and cannot compare to normal room, however for suite and colleagues whom were in others heard that there was some hot water issues in shower and personally found pillows not that comfortable. However TV had most comprehensive choices ever seen and staff were lovely. Hotel is more aimed to Muslim/Domestic market as seen in decor of Egyptian style but it is a central Sumatra area so understand that.
