The Alpha rooms offer a 22-inch TV and a portable desk, while the Beta rooms offer a 32-inch TV sans desk. Each room can accommodate an adult and a child under 5, reports kompas.com.
Among the facilities guests can expect are a cable TV, access card and USB charging outlet. The hotel is also equipped with a communal shower, free Wi-Fi, blankets, pillows, lockers, bathroom amenities and complimentary bottled water.
