“Old hotel losing its charm”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

I remember staying at this hotel back when I was in elementary school, 20+ years ago. Seems that many of the fixtures do not change. Staying here on company travel. Here is my comment about this hotel:

People: staffs are great. They greet you, nice, and welcoming. Always ready to help without being obnoxious. A-.

Lobby: made a mistake of coming here during Sea Games. Crowded and security is somewhat heavy. Also seems old. The lighting could be improved. Elevators also seem old and slow. B-.

Rooms: Old. Somehow I feel nothing match in the room. Red carpet. Bluish sofa. Kind of light brownish night stands. Seems like they were thrown together by my 8 year old son without thinking. Lighting too dim. Also the same with bathroom. They use combinations of white light and yellow light. Light switch are controlled in one place, but just terrible to use. And honestly the room sonewhat scared me a bit. Curtains are missing many hooks. C.

Summary: C+. service is great, but not recommended. Need a complete refurbish to compete with jakarta's newer and cheaper hotels.

This hotel is not recommended for a long stay. The rooms are damp and smelly. The furniture are old and not well maintained. some of the socket broken. The staf are nice and helpful. The good thing about staying in this hotel, if you have to travel to bandung, shuttle minibus is just next to the lobby. run every 2 hours, for 24 hours. They also have trip to Jakarta Intenational Airport, runs every hour. Good for budget Trip, in compare to taking a taxi.

Room Tip: the rooms facing the main street (jl gatot subroto) are noisy. for a nice sleep, choose the opposite...

Stayed here for a week, from 28th October - 4th November 2011.
Would not rrecommend this hotel for any long stay.
Breakfast was the same every day.
Water coming out of the taps on one day was actually 'BLACK' and I was watching some of my light coloured under clothes, so you can imagine my disgust.
Not all lighting points worked and in todays day and age, you still find a 'box' TV in your room.
At Rp 580,000, one might want to stay at some other hotel.
High time for a refurbishing other wise, it will remain a hotel soley used for goverment sponsered functions.

Room Tip: Think very carefully and consider other options before you book your rooms at this Hotel

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2010

I stayed there for one night and gladly it was only one night. The breakfast was terrible, tasted like foods in hospitals. At night, when I turned on the water, dirty water came out first. I found the bed lamps and the desk lamp could not turn-on because there were no electricity supplies from the wall sockets, but I was lazy to call room service since I would go to bed soon. I read the reviews from trip advisor members before I chose the hotel and finally all reviews came to be true. The reason I chose this hotel because of its strategic location and airport shuttle service from Xtrans.
