I stayed for 3 months in a Parlour Suite, so really got to know the hotel and staff quite well.
The room was very comfortable and clean, with good sized flat screen TV, a decent sitting area, kitchenette, small desk etc. Bed was a bit firm for my liking but still comfortable. Excellent water pressure in the shower. My only gripe would be that the complimentary wifi keeps logging out after a relatively short time.
Most rooms overlook the nice pool, which is a good size and suitable for swimming laps. The relatively new fitness centre and spa is also great, with an impressive selection of modern equipment, free weights, aerobics, yoga and more.
Breakfast buffet was also better than most hotels of this size with decent selection of western and asian dishes, egg station as well as a self-serve automatic espresso machine. Meals generally, particularly the Indonesian dishes are tasty, well presented and relatively good value. I usually preferred to sit outside at the pleasant Colombo bar/cafe overlooking the pool.
There are also some good dining choices within a short walk, including the excellent Nanamia Italian restaurant, some tasty local warungs and excellent coffee from Cafe Lagani on funky Jalan Cenderawasih, where they have two outlets.
The staff are top notch - very friendly and helpful and were able to greet me by name after only a few days.
All in all, would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. A pleasant surprise.
