I've been visiting Palembang for the fourth time now, and frankly, i didn't stay overnight that much..., in fact, MaxOne @ Vivo was the first hotel I experienced in Palembang. from the first second, I know that this hotel is a minimalist-modern hotel... small, compact, yet stylish. I would say (even before checking in) that the lobby will be small and packed, corridors will be narrow, and not air-conditioned, and above all, room will be just enough and "dense". Turned out everything is true as predicted, but since it was predicted before, I wouldn't put up any complain against it.
Lobby was fine, loving the unique wall clock (numbers are scattered around however positioned as all round 12 numbers)... corridors? narrow, but unique... I would say honestly, I've never seem similar corridor designs... It was fun to see how they define hotel corridor in a different way...
Room was also okay, although it is small and dense... everything was just about fine until... The internet connection... it shows problem... The connection was on and off... You work in bed and it worked, next 5 minutes, it's off. So you move to the table... It was on again, and you continue working for 5 minutes, then off again... it goes again and again from 21.00 to 02.00, and when I passed on my complain, the reception "sincerely" offered me to move to another room, at 02.00 (Which i found to be ridiculous). I skipped the offer, went to bed, and woke up fresh in the morning... Breakfast was good, since I choose to eat fruit and salad only at the time...
My verdict for this hotel was fair. Room rate's slightly high for a minimalist budget hotel, but room, facilities and service was okay (aside the internet connection of course).
