Come to Kendari for bussiness purpose, and stay at Swissbel hotel following recommendation from Trip Advisor reviewers.
This is my first visit to Kandari and quite surprise that it is actually a small town despite that its is the province capital.
This is an old hotel apparently, but the people as you may expected from Indonesian is very friendly. One benefit for me that for Garuda Frequent Flyer, I earn some miles by staying at this hotel. As mentioned by previous reviewers, smoking is common in the hotel premises. Fortunately, I can get no smooking room, that although I can smell ciggaret smoke in the hall, but the room is smoke free.
The room it self is spasious, with the window facing the nearby village. Since there is barely nothing in the hotel souronding, I think you can not expect to have good view window. The bed is average, and it is clean and comfy as I can expect. One one is only that bath room is so small, that I need to have abit manouver to get fit in. The equipment is also rusty and look old. The shower didnt work well as the shower head is heavly rusty.
The room service is still in good price for such hotel. A package of Surabayan deep friend duck served with steam rice, sambal, and ice tea cost only IDR 65,000 (approx USD 6.5).
The pool is located just beside the hotel, and despite that the hotel look old, but pool is looked more sophisticated. A small pool, but quite giving a refreshing touch.
Internet is available for free, but you need to be patient if you need to open your email with an attachment.
The food is good, and taste well. It served from 06.00 am, but when we arrive at 5.00 am, most of the meal has been well served. We expect to oder something to be brought out, but since everything is ready we can just have normal breakfast.
