Where to stay in Pekanbaru

As an important business center, Pekanbaru hosts a number of five- and four-star hotels located near golf courses and major shopping malls. Mid-range hotels and resorts are available in the city center, but you will be hard-pressed to find budget rooms in this modern city. If you prefer to stay close to exciting nightlife options, look for accommodations in the Tampan District.
