Room was okay but as previously reviewed it's sterile and functional but it was cleaned well during my ten weeks there. However there was insufficient hanging area for clothes for my extended stay. Room air conditioning had no temperature control and was either full on freezing or had to be turned off. The hotel laundry managed to ruin some of my clothes during the stay but that's pretty much the norm for Indonesia. Next time I'm taking travel wash and doing my own!
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was good but the prices erred on expensive. Food was very good and the breakfast much better than at many other Indonesian hotels I've stayed at. It's a business hotel and not really for families, although it did cater for several weddings during my stay there. The pool was nothing special but the gym facilities were good. Very handy location for going down town and there were plenty of taxis on hand outside should you need one. Overall, recommended.
