“Fading colonial charm with friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2008

This landmark hotel of Dutch colonial nostalgia has still some of the originals from before WOII left, but don't expect a Raffles or E&O type of hotel. The Dutch colonial style was a bit more restraiend, to put it mildly.
Very friendly staff, although they couldn't find my reservation (made by telephone, since you can't via the net). Lovely "wintergarden" for breakfast and a bit more cosy than the Grand Hotel Preanger at the other side of the street.
Clean, but somewhat faded rooms in Art Deco style. Nonetheless difficult to imagine that this was the venue where all of the 2005 Asia-Africa hot shots stayed.
Next time we'll go to the Homann again rather than the GHP

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2006

This grand art-deco building was completed in the late 1930's and has hosted guests including Charlie Chaplin and Yasser Arafat.
The hotel still has lots of its original art-deco fittings and style but be sure to get a room in one of the two old wings as the rooms in the new wing are really nothing special.
The hotel has a nice, if shady pool and the courtyard dinning area is also pleasant. This service is ok but not really up to international standards.

  • Liked — The historical nature of the hotel.
  • Disliked — The service is a little 'rough'.
  • Tips/Secrets — Make sure you get in a room in the old wings
