Pondok Tingal was not my first choice hotel but I have no choice since Manohara is full and Rajasa Hotel mixed up my reservation. I called Pondok Tingal to make reservation few days before we arrived and the reception informed me that only family rooms are available since the Banyumasan rooms are full (Both type of rooms offer hot shower). The room package does not come with breakfast.
When we arrived at Pondok Tingal, we were given 4 family rooms on the ground level. Once we open the room, there is a smell lingering in the room and we left the door open for quite a while. The aircon in our room is faulty and the staff spend quite some time repairing it. The toilet is in very poor condition:
- toilet floor is dirty
- the water from the shower is too small
- the toilet seat is spoilt
- water from the basin pipe is dripping
We ordered dinner from the hotel restaurant and service is slow. The mee goreng we ordered is quite salty.
We requested for a van to Borobudur the next day and the reception did arrange it for us. But they dont seem friendly and helpful enough. The hotel allowed us to leave our luggage at the reception counter when we went to Dieng plateau before returning at night to collect our luggage.
