Well before we got there we were all warned that this place was the "pits" and bottom of the pile. I do not think that this hotel is on the "tourist trail". It was bigger then I expected. Now I always have an open mind when I get to a hotel. And it was no where near as bad as...

Spooky ? Yes. Comfortable? meh. Food? Can't really say, the foods are not refilled. The staffs are excellent and attentive. My issue in this hotel is only one, which is the spooky ambience around the hallway and that's really unpleasant, lights up ,please ?!

This one is a difficult hotel to review. For about $25 you can get a twin room with ensuite bathroom, airconditioning, television, access to swimming pool, free wifi in the hotel lobby, free breakfast and parking. I found the sleeping area quite adequate with comfortable beds, clean sheets and no bugs. The aircon worked wonderfully, even on a steamy wet...

I believe at one point the hotel was the finest hotel in Madiun. And the managament USED TO do many upgrades to make the hotel up to date, but their effort stopped sometime in early 1980s. So the design and furnishing of the hotels are dating back from early 1980s. Even the door of one room does resemble my grandmother's...

I stayed one night in this Hotel last weekend due to a big family gathering and a wedding. I made a last minute reservation through agoda, and quite happy that at least I still managed to get a room albeit the price. Needless to say, everything is basic - and the basic level is on the mediocre side. Basic beds,...
