First of all I'm a backpacker so my expectations aren't high...I booked this hotel for one night as it said it was close to the airport...and it is. The old airport. I flew in from Bali to the new airport (not realizing there were two) and it was an HOUR away by taxi (120,000 Rp). It advertised a restaurant which was another reason I booked it, getting in late, but all they had was a few cans of soft drink in a fridge in the reception and a couple of items you could get on room service (like burger or sandwich) NOT EVEN A BEER!
I don't know which rooms they put pictures of on their website but it was definitely not where they put me. First I was on the ground floor (room 210 I think) but I asked to be moved as the toilet was continually flowing and making a lot of noise, so they put me in the room next door. It was so manky. Walls had writing on, curtains were stained, bathroom was dirty and everything looked about thirty years out of date. Real shame as the little chap on reception was lovely (albeit not great English).
The bed was comfy though, so I slept well, managed to get one English speaking Singapore news channel on the tv (and a couple of fuzzy asian ones). Breakfast was inedible. Cold fried eggs covered in salt. Very weak coffee. Toast was ok, but then, when you're toasting it yourself you can't really go wrong!
They do have free bottled water and a computer terminal with internet in reception for guests to use, so that was good.
Last thing I will say is that the area around the hotel is residential. There is nothing here. Wouldn't be so bad if there was an actual restaurant or shop nearby for provisions, but no. That was another taxi ride away. Overall really disappointed. And that's saying something when I'm used to sleeping in dorm rooms!
