“Please Avoid”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Terrible place to stay.. I was there on 18th April, AC was not working in room, made a complaint finally the office boy came after 2 hours and did something saying it's fixed but no luck with it.

They close their entrance door with chains by 10'o clock @ night and you have to wake up the office boy if you need any assistance after ten. Room condition and Toilet is really poor.. I will never go there again..

Room Tip: Avoid this place..

(+) Nice environment, nice staff, nice service, quiet room. Some people will love the ethnic style of interior.

(-) Unfortunately, my room was not clean enough. I found the dead frog in the corner of the bathroom! Only 2 golf car available for transporting from room to the lobby (it can be so frustating when you in a hurry).

Checking into my 'room' was a very pleasant surprise - we were shuttled to our quarters by a small motorised vehicle. Each unit actually consists of an individual chalet with two levels - as one enters, there is a small narrow sitting area. Going up the stairs, I was surprised to see a huge bedroom - furnished like it is with many Asian hotels - in dark wood. I called for room service - food was excellent. In-room massage and spa facilities are also available at an additional price. There was also a complimentary shuttle service to a nearby shopping mall.

The staff were friendly and helpful. We liked the rooms too, felt cosy. Some of the staff were quite proficient in English, which makes communicating easier. The hotel restaurant food was quite nice. Should try the chicken steak. If you are short of indonesian rupiah, can change at the hotel although rate isn't too good. if you need the internet, you can rent the pc facility. nice swimming pool. the hotel seems to be mostly occupied by business travellers, quiet and undisturbed surroundings.however, not near shopping centres, cabdrive takes 20mins to reach tunjungan plaza. overall, feels like a high-class chalet :D
