Located in Salatiga, in Central Java, the skinny hotel owes its unusual shape to the tiny plot of land it inhabits, which developers have historically rejected because of its awkward size. Undaunted, Indra took on the challenge and, rather than building outwards, stacked seven rooms on top of one another.
Rooms start around £50 per night, and each has a double bed, a small bathroom, and a large window that, thanks to the hotel’s height, enjoys views of Mount Merbabu beyond. Indra has used rich colour throughout PituRooms, bringing in deep blues, mustard yellows and terracotta reds that echo the sandstone facade of the building.
Guests can enjoy pieces by local artists in each room and order Indonesian comfort food at PituLounge – the restaurant and bar at the top of the hotel.
