It's a bit of a shame to see the lower rated reviews from some people as this place worked well for us. We checked in which was no trouble, no waiting and was kindly shown to our room. The room was all ok, clean and tidy and had aircon! However the aircon started to leak and so we told reception... More

We have stayed before & it was just as lovely as our last stay.But because it was Jan/Feb.....The pool was a lot warmer than last time. Can't fault this place - great value for money & quiet.It has private parking with a security gate, our room was kept beautifully clean by the housekeeping staff- who came in every day, with...

Staying here did not start well waited over an hour just to book into here. Was always a cue at reception with one person serving most of the time. Rooms ok, we were on the third floor and the ants find there way all the way up there. Rooms not serviced daily which I think they should

Located just one road up from the beach promenade, at perfect distance to walk home along the sea after a dinner out in town (15-20 min), the spacious appartments are well equipped and clean. The staff is very helpful, sun lotion and moskito spray can be used for free at the reception, breakfast is everything you need! Recommendable place to... More

Nice hotel. We had a large room on the first floor. Perfectly clean and all details were OK. Helpful staff at the reception. It is located outside the city centre. About 20 minute walk to the centre, about 30 minute walk to the marina. The restaurant is a good spot for a nice Indonesian diner (but pricy). We stayed for... More

The room was clean, but the hotel is far from the shops and restaurants, the staff took too much time to check me in, and they could be more friendly. The wifi is charged in the whole hotel. Old fashioned.

The location was great! Quick walking distance to the Esplanade and shops. Heaps to do and eat. I was surprised with the room. It seemed very outdated compared to the rest of the complex. My thoughts were confirmed when I realised the TV was so old it wouldn't let you connect a USB media device to play movies. Doesn't help... More

Hotel sure is not 5-star but at least gives a better service than the 600dollar/day Ramada: someone assisted us with the bags, sheltered parking in the garage available. The room is clean (2-bedroom) though it looks old. The room has one bathroom (no tub), tv, washing machine, refrigerator and flat iron. A bit of a walk from the city center,... More
