Some what out of the busy town centre of Solo you find (at the main street, so be aware of street noise for the rooms at the front) this beautiful old place, full of character and charm. Check in was friendly. Immediately a glass of fresh fruit juice was offered. We booked a junior suite (approx. 60 euro per night) located at the backside of the hotel and were impressed of the space and cosiness. Nice bathroom. There is also a small souvenir shop. No swimming pool or fitness. Internet worked well both in the room and on the beautiful inside court, where you are able to relax and enjoy complimentary afternoon tea. In this area is also the restaurant located. We enjoyed a good diner and breakfast, listening to the gamelan band. We were the only guests in the hotel so were even more impressive that they were playing for only two guests.
We were positively surprised about Solo (previously called Surakarta). The city offers many nice ‘things to see’. We enjoyed the Istana Mangkunegaran (one of the two Sultan palaces in town but a very liveable one), the antique and clothing market (Pasar Klewer) and on our way to Bromo we stopped at the Candi Sukuh temple. All ingredients for a nice, one night stop on the long way between Malang (7 hours from Solo) and Yogyakarta (2 hours from Solo).
