INDONESIA - Affordable design was not until recently a very popular term in the hospitality industry.
Hundreds of affordable boutique hotels have been established throughout the year, increasing the availability and competition.
The good thing is that their prices are competitive and the designs are becoming fancier. You can forget about the same old boring hotel room layouts. Many more features have been added, amenities have been improved and connectivity has been advanced.
Here are The Jakarta Post Travel's picks for good design hotels that go well with your budget.
Artotel Jakarta Thamrin
Claiming to be an art-inspired, urban boutique hotel, the Artotel Jakarta Thamrin is certainly a sight to behold with its original contemporary design, both inside and outside the building. The eye-catching mural on the hotel's outdoor facade, for example, is just one of many unique artistic flourishes that will leave guests marveling while staying in its 107 studio rooms.
"We wanted to create a hotel that is like a work of art in itself by integrating the art into the substance of the building rather than simply hanging some paintings and displaying artworks," Artotel CEO Erastus Radjimin told The Jakarta Post Travel during the hotel's soft launch last month.
