For a small city like Tulung Agung, stay in the hotel like Istana hotel was amazing. The hotel even not rated as a star hotel but have complete facilities. The Lobby was nice and the room also was nice, clean and have complete aminities in the bathroom.
In front of my room in the 3rd floor there is a space with some furniture and a big glass of wall where you can see the city. Very nice.
Breakfast was also amazing. The buffet breakfast with variuos food/ main course, porridge and condiments, some dessert local and pastry, and juices. The breakfast price for additional only cost you 25.000 idr. The Kartika sari restaurant huge and also offer various food for Lunch and Dinner with reasonable price. Try their Patin fish steak and some other menu.
Hotel location itself in the city centre near the shopping centre and foodcourt. Railway station also not too far.

Room Tip: Ask the room in the 3rd floor with the living room outside the room and the wall glass for view

I didnt expect to find such a nice hotel like this in Tulungagung. This is my first time spending a night here. Overall, the hotel is nice. I especially love the services given by all the employees. Very polite, helpful, and friendly. I feel like being treated as vip.

The room and the bathroom is small but adequate. Basic amenities. Flat screen tv with cable, tea and coffee.
Breakfast Indonesian food only but they do serve white bread. I tried the food in the restaurant for dinner and it was good. I especially like the orak arik telur that comes with my kakap fish.

The hotel is clean but not very clean. They also have spa and gym.

If you want to rest in a place that is comfortable you can stay here. Pretty close to the train station too.

Actually this hotel can be categorized as value or transit hotel. Because did not much facility like swimming pool. But hotel location is good in the city center of small town Tulungagung. Building is modern with wide basement parking. Decoration is simple and modern and room is spacious. Bathroom is equipped only with shower (no bathtub), but hot/cold water is avalaible. Central Air Conditioner in every room, fridge and ammenities like cofee/tea maker. From room's window we can see Tulungagung city. But sorry no balcony, just looking over the glass window from the above. Also the door lock is already provided with magnetic stripe card and room provide with electronic safety bin, make it secure to leave your belonging inthe room. TV set is LG LCD with sattelite reception. Breakfast is plain average, not so many choice, but we think we get from what we pay. So overall this hotel is good for person or family who may have short stay in Tulungagung city, maybe for transit,leisure or business trip.

Room Tip: Room with window's glass facing the city is good view in the night
