I had an excellent stay at Sidji Hotel over the weekend. It was a good base to explore the batik villages/workshops nearby. The staff at the hotel will have great recommendations. Clean and new hotel (around 2 years old) in the centre of town, but what made the stay excellent was the staff. Special thanks to Mas Oji, Mas Saiful, Mas Abdul, Mas Abdori, Mbak Nada, and Mbak Ria for giving me such a warm welcome to Pekalongan. Will definitely stay here again when I return. Thanks!
