Hotel Pati: Good budget hotel

In December 2012 we stayed a night in Hotel Pati. It is the oldest hotel in Pati town, its history goes back to 1926. But it recently suffered a facelift, which makes its architecture look modern.
The layout still is that of a colonial hotel, rows of ground level rooms with small veranda's around a wide courtyard; now with a meeting hall in the centre.

It is a budget choice, the most expensive room doing Rp 300,000. We stayed in a Rp 190,000 room with AC and hot water (but the 10 l hot water reservoir not big enough to fill the bathtub; why do they install a bathtub?). The price included coffee or tea on arrival and in the morning, and breakfast consisting of a couple of sandwiches and two hard boiled eggs.
Exceptional for Pati, there is a large swimming pool behind the hotel, but it is open to the public. Hotel guests can use it at a reduced rate, Rp 7,000 instead of Rp 10,000.

Hotel Kurnia: Clean and quiet

We had consulted the Pati government website for hotels (http://www.pati.go.id/infopenting/hotel.php) , they list just two 1-star hotels and a lot of budget hotels ("Melati" class). The former are Hotel Merdeka and Hotel Kurnia. We found Hotel Merdeka too dirty for our taste, but hotel Kurnia was ok, so we took a VIP room here at Rp 215,000 a night.
The room and the bedsheets were clean, we got a clean towel every day. Only the breakfast - stone cold nasi goreng - was a disappointment.

Later we found out that the government website gives dated info. Hotel Kurnia may have been the top when it was built in 1979, but looks a bit faded. A former "Melati" class hotel, the Pati Hotel, has been upgraded, and is now the only hotel in the city with swimminhg pool (not counting new Griya Wijaya, 3 km from the town square on the western border of Pati town). Hotel Rama and Hotel Sartika also seem competative with Hotel Kurnia.

Kurnia Hotel is conveniently located at walking distance from the town square.
The rooms are arranged around three enclosed gardens. The VIP rooms lie around the back garden, so very quiet, no traffic noise.
The hotel has one suite going for Rp 600,000.- so it must be luxurious, but we didn't check it out.
