Grand Central one of the 4 star hotel in pekanbaru city, GCH crew not too friendly because when I out of taxi front of the lobby door no body give greetings and no body help me to bring my bag, and I bring my bag until bed alone. For facility no problem complete. Large room and best view swimming pool.

I have been staying in Pekanbaru for business over the past three months. Our client has organised accommodation for me at the Grand Central and I could not be happier with the hotel facilities and the staff.

I stayed at the grand central with my husband who was working in Sumatra at the time. The hotel is nice with adequate facilities. The carpets are a bit old and dirty but the staff are attentive. Their English can be a bit limited sometimes making it difficult to deal with any problems. This is not really a tourist destination... More

For the rate paid, room was reasonable, breakfast was OK, service OK, things worked except aircon took a long time to cool, probably because my room was facing the hot afternoon sun. Location is good if you need to get to the airport quickly, which was why I chose this hotel. Otherwise, nothing much within walking distance except for shops... More

I was visiting Pekanbaru for business purposes . I did stay on Saturday until Monday . The hotel lobby is less relieved and tend to be small , but no problem . Things that make me happy with this hotel is a comfortable room . One unique thing is that you will get a "guling" pillow in the room.

I have stayed at this hotel couple of times last 2 years and the service at front counter seems to get worse from time to time. It took me more than 45 minutes to check on a Saturday night with only 1 staff at the counter who took ages to process the check in. As I strictly mention I need... More

Only stayed a night before going back home because it's centrally located in the city and not too far from the airport. Arrived late about 9pm, fast check in, bed and pillow were comfy and there was also bolsters! Quite rare. My babies love to sit near the window watching cars down there. The breakfast foods were bland, i found... More

Spent the weekend after the new years with my family here, the check in was a breeze, the receptionist gave us a room at the 5th floor with city view. We book the superior room for two nights with twin bed and quite disappointed because the size of the room was small to my liking. The bathroom was narrow, it's... More
