Dirty rooms both dirty bed linen. When I pointed out that my "western toilet" doesn't have a toilet seat he just said : ah you're in 22. When I asked him to fix it or let me change rooms he just laughed. Very rude staff and a very dirty atmosphere. I can not recommend this place to anyone as there... More

Simple hotel right in the center of town, spacious, own bathroom, clean and quiet. Restaurants nearby. ATM also nearby. Becak just in front of the hotel, goes also to the airport, 4 US$. The center of town can be explored at foot.

Stayed here for 1 night on way to sabang and found it cheap and well located. Plenty of eating options a stones throw away. Rooms slightly grubby but acceptable as backpacker accomodation. Was perfectly happy to book another night on return transit but was given a room on the right side as looking into the complex. These rooms were so... More

If you are looking a cheap place to stay for transit or staying for one night just to sneak peak of Banda Aceh city and don't want to splurge money than this is the place you looking for. I believe for some people it called cheap motel instead of hotel. Found the plus point though about this place. Food market... More

Not many people stay more than a night in Banda Aceh so most will be here only one night, but I was here two and thought it was fine. It is as other reviewers mention, a bit worn down, but my room was clean and comfortable enough. And yes they spray the room with bug spray when you enter, which... More

Don't let the profile picture fool you, the rooms at this hotel are dreadful. When we stayed here, we experienced a dirty bathroom (unclean sink) with bugs crawling everywhere on the walls, beds that seemed dirty and smelly, and just before you're shown to your room, one of the workers goes in and sprays the heck out of it to...

We stayed for one night in a basic room at the Prapat with fan and cold water. For $10 a night the place is really not bad, especially when everything else in town is almost double the price or more. The beds were comfy enough and had clean sheets, the fan worked well (although it was still very hot in... More

This place has the cheapest rooms in Banda Aceh and they are clean, though basic. Best value in Banda Aceh is still a low value for money compared to the rest of Sumatra, but that can't be helped at the moment. We stayed a few times, but only when a basic room was available. If not, the next door Hotel... More

Very near to all food stalls and souvenir shops. Within walking distance to the Raya Baiturrahman Mosque. Rooms are immaculate. Wonderful, helpful and friendly staff. We took the 100,000 rupiah standard room, but no difference in the good service provided by the staff.Towels, soaps and drinking water are provided for. I believe the owner and staff put a lot of...

We stayed here on our way to Pulau Weh. We arrived late in the evening and the staff were really helpful. There were no more basic rooms, so we paid for an executive room, which cost almost twice the price, but didn't seem to have any more amenities or be any better maintained, so I would advise trying to book...
