Stayed at the Aryaduta Hotel recently and there was a card in the room that stated:
"FREE WI-FI INTERNET
US$15/DAY++"

I had to say, WTF!??!

No, I guess I can't. Can you? I suspect they directly translated 'bebas' to "free". What they should have said was unlimited internet for $15/day... I wonder what the ++ means, like are they going to charge per/kb or something as well? I didn't bother to find out.

It was by far the crappiest, worst-managed "5-star" hotel I've ever stayed at. Who in the heck rates these things in Indon and I wonder how much of a bribe it takes for 5 stars? Personally, I'd give it only 2 stars.

this ++ business is really dishonest. 10% VAT, ok, fine, whatever. then the "service fee", which can be anything they want it to be!
