Stayed 4 nights at this hotel because of a very limited 3* and 4* hotel in Banda Aceh. Info : Hermes 4* is the highest category in Banda Aceh. Our local agent claimed that most of the 3* & Hermes is occupied by all the indonesia government bodies for a meeting during our visit.
Errrmmmm....my first impression upon arrival....OH MY !!! Unattractive. Old Building. But...i felt so happy to see the foyer shared with A&W (fast food restaurant). No LIFT. But they will help you to carry your luggage to your room. Room is not bad....not too small and not too big for 1 or 2 pax and its clean. Basic amenities is there. Air conditioned, hot shower, tv & free wifi...even inside your room :-)
You can walk to the famous Baiturrahman Mosque and Pasar Atjech.(about 10 minutes walk) or may take a 'beca' (motor taxi) - cost around RP10,000.00 (+-RM3).
A lot of local restaurant around...movieland (if you want to buy a CD at only RP8000), saloon, massage centre, (for saloon and massage centre, women and men will be in a different building) branded items such as Nike & Levis. Oh...i love this area :-)
The only bad things i could say about this hotel is the breakfast....they only serve noodle and toast bread OR fried rice with toast bread with coffee and tea.
Opsss..we experienced the 'earth quake' on the first night of my visit (15 Nov) due to Mount Sinabung erupted in Medan. It was 4.9 scala richter :-(
But overall...it was a nice stay in Banda Aceh at this hotel.
