Arriving at the Kediri Rail Station in early morning, we simply hired a 'convertible rickshaw' to reach Hotel Merdeka.
The hotel is fairly simple but they have employees with very good manners.
They also have a lovely koi fish pond with waterfalls and a bridge that connects front building (lobby, receptionist, restaurant) with back building (rooms).
So, choose a Deluxe Type room at the 1st floor with fish pond view.
Do not forget to bring a lot of koi food... ;)
Bedrooms (including bathroom) is also quite simple but it's very clean and neatly arranged.
There is not many option for breakfast but everything was tasty and delicious.
The rooms is quite cheap;
Rp500000/night (+-US$54.35) Deluxe Room w/ Breakfast
Rp350000/night (+-US$38.05) Deluxe Room only
And there are still Standard Room with a much cheaper then Deluxe...
So, when I came back to Kediri, I would definitely stay here again :)
To Hotel Owners:
- Please give more pillows at the rooms (two per room is not enough),
- Keep all the original features, or better yet replace your modern room equipment with equipment that does the same function but with an antique-look,
- Can you make a waterways for air conditioning so the room back terrace is not always wet and tarnish,
- How come there's no scrumptious Brotoseno Coffee at your hotel??? :pMore
- Free Wifi
- Free parking
