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

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. English is not spoken fluently in my experience but everyone the people in town and at the hotel were very willing to work with me. I understand that experience on this end of Indonesia is... More

old hotel, good location close to city centre, dark and smell like damp room, dusty floor, less tv channel choices, no wi-fi, 'minimalist' breakfast, lazy staff (no one help me lift my luggage to my room when check-in), no window for air circulation.

We ended up staying here for one night unexpectedly when our planned accommodation in Banda Aceh fell through. There is wifi in the room, a TV with one channel in English (HBO, the others are local channels), and A/C. The room is not as good as the hall and corridoor would make you believe however. Admittedly we were in the... More
