“Novotel Hospitality”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We have stayed in this hotel at least 20 days during the last several years. We have always been impressed by the service and attention to detail. Buffet breakfasts are great, and available early for those who may be leaving for the airport, or just sightseeing early in the day.
Rooms are comfortable and quiet.
Location in Solo is excellent. It is possible to walk to nearby restaurants and other shopping such as Grand Mall or the Gramedia bookstore.
We plan to continue staying at this hotel whenever we pass through Solo

Room Tip: Makes little difference. All rooms we have used have been very similar. No-smoking rooms are avail...

We had a three night stay in Solo in an Executive Floor room; overall the stay was amazing value for money (USD60 per night). Our room was on 7th floor (top floor 8 is a family floor) and was large with comfortable furnishings and a nice view over the city. However, the lounge is not a lounge... It is a few chairs in the lift lobby of the 7th floor with some scraps of food offered. Whilst we were at the hotel, there was a school holiday so there were kids running down the corridor and sticking their grubby fingers in the food... The hotel has a family floor, so why not keep kids off the "Biz Floor" as the hotel call it.

The hotel shares a location with an Ibis and they each have a pool that can be used by guests - my partner also had a 1 hour massage for USD20 which helped a back problem.

Breakfast buffet was very good with many Indonesian and Western options.

The hotel is well located for walking around Solo and has an ATM across the road. We enjoyed Solo and would recommend if you want a more authentic Javanese experience. They arranged us a Borobudur trip and transfer to the airport which suited us.

Room Tip: Consider the executive floor, but maybe check if it is school holidays!

We got a nice and clean room for the price we paid. I just wish the room was a bit bigger, but overall I enjoyed the stay in the hotel.

Nice hotel for the price (booked through here). Good rooms although bathroom in our third floor room needs some upgrading of fixtures. Staff was helpful when I needed to print document off a memory stick. Restaurant is good if a little expensive for Indonesia (especially once you add on the ++ service and taxes). The coffee shop was way overpriced!! It's only coffee, not champagne!! Located near the main artery of town which is a nice street to walk on as it has shaded parallel access roads on either side with no through traffic. Easy walk to local palace from hotel. Take a day trip to Candi Ceto and Candi Sukuh and cool off in the beautiful countryside! If you can find AA Trans, they offer good, reliable car rentals at reasonable prices.
