Simply put, Syailendra Hotel offer some of the best value rooms in Jepara.

The largish (for Jepara) motel-style business hotel sits in the town centre about one kilometre from the bus station and two from the port. If you arrive by car, drive though the arched entrance and park in front of your room. The double-storey hotel houses the superior rooms in the street-facing block above reception and the restaurant, and deluxe rooms around the quieter courtyard area behind.

Modern comfortable rooms.

Ground floor rooms are kept cool and free of car fumes by an attractive cascading curtain of greenery. Good-sized, comfortable, air-con tiled rooms are spotless and painted in warm neutral tones featuring locally made modern-style teak furniture with plenty of storage space. Bouncy beds sport crisp white linens and add a bit of style with bed runners. Decent lighting, ample power outlets, flatscreen TV and tea-making facilities are standard, and deluxe rooms include a minibar and extra seating. Tiled bathrooms are squeaky clean with hot-water showers and smart round hand basins.

Included breakfast sweetens the deal, served in the pleasant street front cafe where you can enjoy your meal alfresco under a shady umbrella. Syailendra Hotel also offer a couple of mountain bikes for hire, a terrific way to explore the local area (although it’s a big hill back if you ride to the port).

Staff are sweet and charming and we found the reception staff to have good English. We think Syailendra Hotel is the best flashpacker deal in Jepara, but if you’d prefer a smaller homelier option, The Gecho Inn Town is a good (but pricier) choice, or if a seaside location is more to your liking, go for Jepara Marina.
