“A fairly good option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Convenient location. Very close to the airport. The contemporary design of the drop off area was as a warm welcome to the hotel, while the open concept of the lobby gave it a fresh and bright look. Rooms were what you'd expect for a hotel of this standard. Bathroom was clean but may need a bit of a touch up. The lift was ridiculously small that it could take no more than 5 people at a time. Swimming pool and the gym were passable and did not seem to serve their purpose in terms of size. But who needs the pool anyway after a day of island hopping? Other than that, everything else with this hotel was fine.

I stayed here with my husband related to his company event.
We've got everything handled by the company, and was really surprised to be given the junior suite. The room was spacious, and the bathroom also have separate shower (with various modes of showers) and bath-tub. There was individual AC in the room, not 'central'. Funny how they only had 1 bathrobe in the room.
It was during the Ramadhan fasting month, and we got sahur instead of breakfast. Menu was okay: there were fruits, bread, rice, soup. It was enough to have for such an early hour. Food was not that tasteful, unfortunately.
Swimming pool and small gym available - no chance to try them.
Location is just 5-minutes drive to the airport - really nice for those with early flights!

Room Tip: Ask for room at 2nd floor, where the lobby is. You don't need to climb up / down stairs - the li...

I booked thru Santika online, clearly stated to have 2 non smoking rooms, non smoking floor, but one of the room was heavily tainted with smoke...they changed it *upgraded* but still, the smell of smoke was very strong.
The first room was absolutely NOT like what they advertised, its small !! While the 2nd room *upgraded* has a good size and good view, direct access to their tiny pool.
And their first greeting was .... Booking thru Agoda ? *WOW*

* Rooms - beware, smokers left their traces, ask for a change if you experience this, no charge.
* Pool - too small, just like a pond... And kiddy pool is quite dangerous with nail heads popping on the deck
* Breakfast area - small, but its ok if there's no meeting venue, beware of the cleanliness of the cups and so on
* Breakfast menu - mostly not nice.. I had porridge with fish soup and fruits only..
* Room amenities - so far ok, but when it comes to towels, need to make sure they deliver, I had my room without towels, and the other room without hand towel, and the next day, without doormat, make sure to ask and re-ask thru receptionist

In general .. Good looking hotel with lousy stuffs inside...

For start,
I was only for meeting and sleeping in this hotel.
Because of the nature of my tight schedule, I don't stop at gym dan swimming pool so I can't comment on that.

The hotel itself, have a beautiful lobby with ceiling fan and modern sofa and white paint, I didn't experience the check in procedure, but during the stay, the lobby was never crowded, so lets assume the check in procedure is not going to be a problem for this hotel. The hotel itself is situated on the second floor.

The standard room itself is very very spacious, I think its about 30-40 m/square, the room is equipped with balcony, two sofa, coffee table, of course you need to add the sofa and coffee table, else there is too much empty space. The only missing in this room is an espresso machine, he3. But then again this hotel is only 3 stars, but I will rate it as 4 stars.

My room is on the fifth floor, so it's away from the pool in the first floor. The only downside is this hotel is look like a kos-kosan (monthly rented apartment in Indonesia). They don't use indoor AC in the hall through the room and use split AC inside the room. The lift they use only accomodate up to 4 people, so most of my team need to use the stairs on the way to the room. Only us in the fifth floor decided to use the lift.

Talk about the number, the hotel itself is actually 4 floor tall, but the owner omit the number 4 in the elevator, and change it to 5. This is because the word 4 = means death in chinese (also japanese) and Bangka People is consist of malay and chinese.

The meeting room is well equipped, they have at least 5 different type of meeting room, on near the cafe, 3 behind the lobby, and another one on the 3rd level. Nothing is smell rotten or out of ordinary, everything is fresh, and the most important they have restroom nearby.

The location is near the airport, only 5 minutes to airport with car, I think about 15 minutes if you walk from the hotel.

The breakfast consist of,
Local food (yellow soup with sweet, spicy and sour, pecel), Indonesian Food (nasi goreng, omelete, telur dadar, noodle), and Bread
Those with western tongue like me could only eat bread and omelette.
they should at least add sausage or beef bacon to the mix, we with western palate actually easy to tame.

Overall,
I would like to stay in this hotel again. Despite to be the first (oldest) chain hotel in Bangka, the facility is still at its best.

Nice place, to work if you choose the one that have lobby room.. My 3 days worked at this area was good.
This was my second trip, but I love it. Easy to reach from airport. Near banks, and bangka mart, easy to find what your needs.
