Just quickly - older hotel I think a little worn but for the price great value. Breakfast was good, cleanliness of hotel was good and reception was efficient. Location not so good but a short becak or taxi ride to malls, etc. Good Padang restaurant opposite too. BUT the internet in my room was spectacular - the fastest I have ever had in Indonesia and I have stayed in a lot of hotels and this was even Include in the room price too - brilliant! I will stay there again if i ever return to Solo. Very nice!

Room Tip: I had a front room and it was good - view and not a lot of road noise.

This hotel have good location, on main street of Solo City; so it would be very easy to go everywhere while you stay there. Cleaning room and good hospitality give us convenient feeling. Breakfast in the morning also good enough, in addition of Lunch & dinner that I have ever taken since we had meeting there; also delicious and enough variations of the food.

Nothing specail
Two swimming pools shared with the Ibis
So if you go for the IBIS you will access the same facilities: Sauna, Spa and Swimming pools.
Service is poor
rooms are not neat
executive lounge is just a table in front of the elevator : a real joke !!!! nothing more
very disapointing!!!!

Dear Gl0be_Tr0tter_14,

We are very sorry that your stay did not match your expectations, we are pleased to let you know that we are doing a full refurbishment of the hotel included the executive lounge this year. We are adding brand new rain shower as well as changing all the furniture in the rooms.
We hope that you will have the chance one day to come back and see it by yourself!

We stayed at the Novotel in Solo for one night before our flight back home. Staff is helpful and friendly with good English (always handy when your Bahasi like mine is non-existent!). My husband and I especially liked the pool-side area on the Ibis side (Novotel and neigboring Ibis hotel merged a few years ago and they now have 2 pool areas). My husband had a massage at the spa, twice, on one day. He was raving about it! This is a good hotel when you need a clean and friendly place to stay for a short vacation or business at a central location in Solo.

I chose to stay at this hotel on my trip to see an Art Performance in Solo. The first hotel that came to my mind is Novotel Solo, as I hv been there 12 years ago and it was nice experience to come back.
Everything is still the same, only the bathroom feels old!
The service is still excellent. I am welcome to choose the room with my favorite numbers, and when what i want is not available the receptionist was patient to wait for me choose another room numbers.
The room is still well maintained and very clean.
One thing that I think the management needs to pay attention is for the extra bed. It needs to be refurnished.
Anyway, for a 4 stars hotel the price that i paid (rp. 450,000,- or eq. Usd 50) is just worth it!
The location is really good, I just have to walk or go with "becak". It is in the city center. And now its more fun as Ibis is standing next to it! We hv 2 swimming pools to choose... The old one and the one shared w Ibis.
Breakfast is very okay for Rp. 65,000,- we get a buffet !

I stayed 2 nights in Solo. One night I stayed in Paragon Hotel (a new one) and one night i spent in Novotel.
Paragon is off course "fresher" and looks more grand, bathroom is new but with shower (Novotel's used bathtub).
All in all, I still prefer Novotel to Paragon...and am hoping that the management will soon make a minor touch in the bathroom! I shall look forward to go back and stay again!
