Close to tourist dots as well as shops. Trishaws readily available outside the hotel but check the rate before you're overcharged!! Hotel transport charges 120,000 Rp to the airport. Bad experience when driver took it upon himself to keep the 30,000 Rp as his tip!! Very bad!

Having talked with other travellers we realize our Sumatran pillow experience has not been unique..... weeks of lumpy, hard and too low, or ridiculously high and unyielding. Sigh. Here however was pillow heaven, billowing, soft and perfect, accompanied by clean white linen and a wonderfully wide bed. (Hotel is three stars but pillows made it up to four!) Staff were... More

Located in the city center of Banda Aceh and has many dining option near hotel. Such as coffee shop, noodles (Mie Razali), nasi goreng, nasi gurih or nasi kuning. This hotel has deluxe and superior room. Deluxe room doesn't have outside view and only have inside view. So, when we are inside the deluxe room, we feel like in a... More

Positive review: good location, a lot of food stalls nearby. Shopping bazar walking distance. Negative review: Wash basin was leaking but they repaired it then the wash basin got stuck and had to call them to flush it again. The wifi reception was poor in the room. It was off and on and only 1 handphone got reception. Electric supply... More

It was quiet tricky to find a hotel in Banda Aceh. So we finally ended up at Sulthan Hotel which used to be the best hotel in town before the tsunami 2004. We traveled as a family and needed 3 beds. When we arrived the reception was friendly, some English were spoken. The lobby was simple but nice and clean.... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way to Pulau Weh, and are still regretting not having looked for something else. Don't trust the professional fotos! The rooms are nothing like what they show, we had what looked like blood stains on the bathroom walls, and mold all over the tiles. The breakfast was nothing special either.... More

I'll admit I am a very low-maintenance traveler male traveler but I thought the staff was very friendly, food was good and price was fair.
