Reviewed February 22, 2009

+ verandah was cozy, good music, continental breakfast was incredibly good (fruit platter was huge, french bread was warm and soft, the OJ was freshly squeezed)

- room's decor was creepy, very old air con unit - could not even set temperature, no hot water at that time

I spent a day and a night at this hotel. A few things will stand out to anyone who has made it as far as Padang, Sumatra, Indonesia. One, the hotel has style and charm, a boutique in every sense. Two, the staff is very helpful and hustles to a standard that is more Bali than Sumatra. Three, most rooms are very spacious, and would qualify as suites in many hotels. A few other features of note:

A competent and helpful travel agency works out of the lobby and they can help you book (or change) plans for your next adventure.

The hotel stocks a good selection of ice cold beer, a nice wine list (considering the location), along with premium Sumatran coffee. The hotel menu offers many fresh, wholesome choices (including smoothies) but the kitchen is not set up to make a lot of food quickly.

The rooms, though nicely decorated, do not have TV's. Also there is no pool. If you must have these amenities there is another hotel in town that is a better choice.

Finally, take the time to meet the owners, charming, friendly people who worked selflessly for months doing tsunami relief work in Sumatra's offshore islands.
