You need to have the CEE7 VII standard power point plug (2 pin round). You can just buy a travelling converter for that. Most of new notebook ac adapter can support 100-240V 50-60Hz, so you don't need to worry about the power input from the wall plug. But bear in mind that it is advisable to have sort of voltage regulator if you are planning to work here for a long term, as Indonesian Power Supply is not really that reliable, you might not want to have your ac adapter to be fried.

As for other equipment, as you are staying in hotel, most well known (i mean international) hotel will provide business centre or even internet access in to your room, either via lan or wifi.

I hope that infomation will be helpful to you.
