“A Room without Window”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

I stayed for three days and two nights. We found out that the air conditioning (AC) does not working and the room size is too small for two adults and one child. When we ask to switch the room, the lady on the help desk first argue that it is the sun that makes the room feels like sauna. Sorry, but I know exactly which is a broken machine and which is a good one.

Finally they offer us another room with the same type. This one is bigger and more cozy but has no windows. Yep. Wall surrounds you so you'll have no idea is this morning or already evening. Think positive, it'll be noise free.

You get hot and cold water, shower and bathtub. They put a sticker in the bathroom, says not to splash any water on the floor but there's no shower curtain. So how could we take a shower without leave the floor wet? Paradox.

The hotel is located near Losari Beach, Fort Rotterdam and Somba Opu. You can walk or ride a rickshaw (around 8,000 - 15,000 IDR for a single trip). There's no groceries shop and ATM next to hotel. You have to go a little further. So plan your day before back to hotel.

If you plan to stay, ask for a room with the street view. At least you'll know where the sun is.

If you are staying on the wrong site, the street site is the best, the noise of the mosque is so loud, starting at 04.00 in the morning, that it is impossible to sleep.
I asked for a non smokers room, but they didn't had one in the hotel.
The rooftop has a beautiful view, breakfast is on the rooftop and is decent, not special.
In the evening when the Imam is "working", it is not possible to understand eachother.
