Ary Indra, the architect of the hotel called PituRooms said they built the building in the city of Salagita in Central Java province on a piece of land that no one wanted to buy because of its bizarre dimensions.
Ary Indra the founder of the architecture firm Sahabat Selojene, who stated that the 5-storey hotel has 7 rooms, told Tourism FM that each room has a double bed and a small bathroom with shower and toilet.
Stating that the rooms designed by Indonesian artists and interior architects have their own unique texture, Indra said, "I want those who come here to experience Salatiga in a new way."
The architect said he runs the hotel with a team he set up himself, adding that they want to attract more people to Salagita, about 480 kilometres southeast of the capital Jakarta.
Stating that mostly Indonesians stay in the hotel, which opened in December 2022, Indra said that they brought a new perspective to the understanding in this sector, "We had technical difficulties, but the main problem was the typical mentality that is accustomed to words that indicate superiority such as 'the biggest, the highest and the most luxurious', which dominates the accommodation sector. We are the thinnest hotel."
