“A hotel with big value added...................”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

The hotel had some sort of minimalism design. The room is not so big, but enough. The food is ok, the cleanliness is ok. The location is superb. It is near the toll road. Downstairs its the big mall/ Botani Square. A few steps more and you already arrive in the Big Botanical Garden that is world well known. That's why I called this as a truly a hotel with big value added. What's more, the reception is very kind. When I ask for two room with good view, they give me almost at the top floor....! Also , parking is abundance. On top of all, the price is favorable. Of course there's no refrigerator inside the room, but since the mall is downstairs, the need is minimal.

I made the long trek to visit the Bogor Botanical Gardens (been on my wish list for 25 years). The Santika was a good hotel for this visit, walking distance to gardens, free wifi throughout hotel, nice pool, good room with good air con and bed. The breakfast was ok but I ate dinner in the buffet restaurant one night and it was crap. I definitely recommend this hotel. Oh, and it as attached to a wonderful shopping mall with many restaurants and retail outlets..all up market, modern and air conditioned. I took the time to write to the manager thanking him for a ice time and terrific staff.

Located in Baranang siang.. Which was my campus... This hotel stands in the center of grafity of Bogor. To reach Bogor botanical park (the best park in Indonesia)just need to walk. There are conference hall, in hotel complex, and simple shoping mall embeded. For conference and profesional purpose, this hotel is perfect. The only weakness is that there is no garden nor park in the hotel. Although there is a swimming pool and view of salak mountain from certain spot of the hotel, I think this hotel need garden or open space. Money wise... This hotel is really worthed and the breakfast is good.

Room Tip: Room with view to Salak Mountain

I was staying in this hotel for weekend. The hotel room is so spacious and quite clean, the location is very good in which in the downtown and attach to the mall. I also like the breakfast they serve, various and delicious.

The swimming pool and fitness centre closed at 7 pm, but at the moment the staff allow us to swim at 9.30 pm.

There are many aspects to improve in hotel Santika in Bogor.

Staff
The staff in Hotel Santika is sweet and with many smiles but in the end you just want to receive professional service and not:
- Being confronted with reception staff not taking up the phone (this happened many times);
- Being served by staff of which most do not understand English at all;
- wait 50 minutes and phone 3 times in order to have some ice cubes delivered to your room;
- have to explain how a fried egg should be made (and still not receiving what your ordered).

Rooms
Rooms are nicely decorated with a good bed but also very noisy. We could hear our neighbours, people walking in the hallways and the sound of the showers/toilets of other guests. Be also careful, the doors are not closing well. Make sure you push hard enough.

Breakfast
Breakfast is a big buffet with different styles of (non)cooked food and served every morning from 06.00 until 10.00. We arrived two mornings at 09.00 and faced a nearly empty buffet. The fish was dry, dim sum cold (or not available any more), half the fruit was gone and no refill (‘sold out’).

Gym
Two treadmills and two bikes in a small room. That’s all. Would not call it a gym.

Location
The location of the hotel is great (90 minutes drive from the international airport, 10 minutes walk to the entrance of the Botanical gardens -Please do not forgot to take entrance fee (1000 Ruphiah)- and around the corner of a big shopping mall.

Finally: Bogor is called the raining city with lot’s of showers and thunder storms, so be prepared.

Room Tip: Mention possible noise and ask for a quite room.

I book this hotel by phone and completed the payment on arrival. The receptionist Ken and Dewi welcoming me with warm smile and handle the check in procces quickly. I stay for 12 nights in last June with rate about USD 70 / night.

The location of the hotel is at the center of Bogor, just beside Botanical square. The main entrance of Bogor Botanical Garden is about 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. There is a shuttle bus to and from the Soekarno hatta Airport depart every half an hour from in front of the botanical square, it cost IDR 35,000 (USD 4).

The bedroom was quite large and very clean. The bathroom also clean, cold and hot shower was running well. The hotel provide various western and indonesian food for breakfast, wholewheat bread but they didnt serve oatmeal. The restaurant staff; Ayu, Nanda & Rani were very helpfull and serve the guest with hospitality and smile (typical of almost all indonesian hotel staff). When I asked them about oatmeal, they provide it in the next morning for my breakfast and until my last day I stay at no cost. I really appreciate.

Ayu and Rani also told me where to find a good food for dinner. There are delicious cheap Siomay in front of the botanical square and various delicious dish at "Warung Taman" (Ask them for the exact location and how to get there).

The down point was the small gym room: there ware only treadmill and one another cardiovascular exercise equipment.
Considering it is a 4 star hotel, it should be completed with dumbbell, bench press,
pull-up bar, mattress and other common gym equpments.

Overall I enjoyed my stay and will recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Take the 3rd floor room. It close to the restaurant and swimming pool.

I'm truly impressed with the hospitality of the staff. Everyone is generously smiling to all guest, including the securities staff. I stayed here at 15 - 17 November 2012 during a long weekend, and the hotel has 100% occupancy. Even during the peak hour at breakfast, all staff are keep smiling and handled all complaint efficiently. The property is properly maintained, very neat and clean. Two thumbs up to all Santika crew.

The hotel location is also a strong plus. Either if for a business trip or family vacation, you will get everything you need from food, munchies, stationery to kids playground and cinema since its located adjacent to the most popular mall in the city.

The only downside is the parking slot. Since the hotel is adjacent to the most visited mall in Bogor, it will be difficult to find empty slot during peak hour. Please be aware that if the parking is full, they will close the entrance and you can not enter the complex. Also the drop off area is a bit odd and confusing for first timer.

All in all, it was a pleasant stay and worth every penny.
