Maxonehotels.com @ Sabang

A stay at Maxonehotels.com can be quite a restless experience, unless you ask for a room at the back or at a higher floor (or both); the busy Sabang location places guests close to Sarinah Department Store and Tanah Abang Market, but this means noise filters into the rooms even late at night. 87 guestrooms come with flatscreen TV and free WiFi. Rooms have no phones; communal intercoms are available in the hallways if you need to get in touch with the management.
