Where to stay in Palembang

Unusually for a city of its size, Palembang's budget-friendly options are not as plentiful as other destinations within Indonesia. By contrast, you'll find luxury hotels ranging from three- to five-star in good supply here. Offering large banquets, Wi-Fi, ensuite bathrooms, indoor swimming pools, and other recreational facilities, some of these hotels rise to an impressive 18 stories, so accommodations should not be hard to find within a midrange to upscale budget. For more affordable lodgings, explore the few backpacker-friendly hostels, bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses.
