Want to travel but can't go far yet? Just try a staycation! For a different sensation of staying, you can try a staycation at this container-nuanced hotel in Gading Serpong, Tangerang, called Qubika Hotel. This hotel is in a quite strategic location, because it is close to two prestigious malls in Tangerang, AEON and Summarecon Mall Serpong.
Before arriving at the hotel, from afar you will see the arrangement of black containers stacked in such a way with ornamental plants spreading around it. Once inside, you will be amazed by the piles of colorful painted containers decorated with flowers creeping up on the walls of the containers. Although the design uses containers, the air inside this new hotel is not hot at all, because it is air conditioned and has good circulation. Interestingly, most hotel areas are designed to be semi open space.
Qubika Hotel actually has 133 rooms, but due to the pandemic, only 55 rooms have been opened. The rooms are divided into several types including Superior, Deluxe, Suite and Club Suite. Superior and Deluxe rooms are perfect for those of you who want to staycation with friends without having to pay a fortune. However, if you want a more spacious room, you can choose Suite Room or Club Suite Room.
For Superior rooms, because they are made of containers, they are not like hotel rooms in general. The rooms at Qubika Hotel Serpong are elongated, but they don't give the impression of being cramped at all, instead they are more practical and minimalist. Although there is no cupboard in this room, there are wooden shelves that can be used to put your things.
Uniquely, the bed in Superior room is placed on the wooden floor, as if it gives the impression that you are staying at a Japanese hotel. Qubika Hotel also helps save the earth by not providing plastic drinking bottles in the rooms. But using glass bottles and glasses that look aesthetically pleasing.
Apart from rooms, Qubika Boutique Hotel also provides other facilities such as a restaurant, pool game, and meeting room. To be able to stay at this container hotel, you can spend starting from Rp 389 thousand for Superior Room on weekdays only. This rate includes breakfast.
