“very recommended hotel in solo”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

Before we arrived at solo train station, I managed to arrange a hotel picked up service in a very last minute.. and it's for free.. By the time we got there, we were welcomed by a very friendly front desk staff.. Our baby was given a cute hippo toy too, which was meant a lot for us.. The room was clean, which was very important, since we travelled with our 2,5 years old daughter.. Since we stayed at the 7th floor, it was easier for my husband to meet all of his friends and business partners.. it's such a great pleasure to stay at this hotel.. :)

Having stayed at the Novotel Solo many times it's sad to see the hotel standards are dropping, to the point that we are considering somewhere else next time. The staff there are fantastic and always so friendly and welcoming, not only to us but to all guests. The hotel itself is comfortable but in need of a referbishment as it's looking a bit old and tired inside. The suite we had was clean as always but badly in need of repair with the couch split down 1 side, the curtains were different lengths and missing hooks causing them to hang badly and look even worse. We wanted to use the jacuzzi but again it was set to 40 degrees which is way to hot to have a relaxing spa. The excuse this time was that the locals like it that hot so they always leave it at that temperature giving the impression the guests dont count. The food there is good with a different buffet each night and as always breakfast is great. We love this hotel because oif the staff but the accomodation standard is important too as there are other hotels around the area with comparable prices and much better rooms.

I have reserved one room online at Novotel Solo without click the over to save my reservation on arrival after 6pm. Unfortunately, my flight schedule from Jakarta was delay from 3.35pm to 7pm. I have arrived at the hotel almost 9pm. In the information desk the girl said that she tried to contact me to confirm once again about my reservation because it was after 6pm already, but there is an answer that she called wrong number. Even though my reservation was automatically canceled, she help me to get new reservation with same requirement. So, thank you Novotel for made my stay easier. My pleasure to have such hospitality as Novotel .

We checked in and then checked out as the hotel was unable to provide us with a room that did not smell of smoke or overpowering and choking chemicals (used to try and clear the smell of smoke). The front desk was unhelpful and other than shunting us to the Ibis next door (we carried our own bags!) showed no interest in solving the problem. Our short stay in the room revealed an old hotel, showing lots of wear. Avoid.
