We stayed here for one night recently and have nothing to complain about. Both the check in and check out were straightforward. Our deluxe non smoking room was of a good size, the bathroom was modern with a bath and separate shower unit, the bed was very very comfortable and it was quiet (we did not hear anything from the neighbouring rooms). The TV had a good selection of channels. Everything was clean and tidy, as to be expected from this class of hotel.
The buffet breakfast was also pleasant. There was a good selection of food (hot and cold, nice bread and Danish pastries, fresh fruit, juices etc.) and great coffee straight from the machine (you have to ask for it).
The restaurant at to top of the hotel looked very good, with excellent views, but we did not eat there. Maybe another time.
We needed to print out our boarding passes for our flights and the hotel's business centre was very accommodating in this regard. Overall we found the staff friendly and helpful.
The hotel is above a shopping mall which has plenty of places to eat and a good sized supermarket in the basement.
Polonia airport was a short 10 to 15 minute taxi ride away and cost about 30,000 (3 USD). There is a Bluebird taxi rank over the road from the hotel main entrance and the doormen will call one over for you. (Tip: do not get to the airport earlier than you need to if you can help it as it is a grim place with nothing much to do. The duty free shop was shuttered up when we were there and the remaining shops sold mostly overpriced tourist tat. We had to pay a departure tax of 75,000 IDR each, so make sure you have some cash on you!)
