A bland yet comfortable chain hotel
This chain hotel has basic modern rooms which are very comfortable, but lack any character whatsoever.
In each rooms is a plush bed with crisp white linen, a safe, LCD TV, air-con, thick windows to keep outside noise to a minimum and hot water bathroom with shower and Western toilet. Free WiFi is advertised but never worked during our stay there and the staff were not equipped to deal with the situation. The location of this place is great, just across the road from the botanical gardens and a 15-minute walk to the main gate. Despite some misgivings, the Amaris feels like a refuge. This can be a godsend for those experiencing culture shock after recently arriving in Indonesia. Prices vary dramatically through the seasons so check rates online first.
