Most reviewers were correct about this place. It is far from the city centre being located in the northern suburbs, the front desk staff need to be warmer and the breakfast spread needs to be wider. There are many things that can be improved upon but most critical is the hospitality aspect.
On the plus side, the cable tv programmes are more than usual, surpassing my expectation. The room is comfortable and cool enough, lighting is cozy, showers are hot, new kettle for boiling water is free of scales, room decor generally agreeable with my concept of "boutique hotel".
If you take the green minibus to "Ciwalk", the distance is relatively short, about 8 mins (costs Rp2500). Because the hotel is located on an upslope and the road is narrow, it is not advisable to walk there and back. "Ciwalk" is a pleasant locale with trendy shops and hip restaurants.
However, if you want city centre convenience, this place is not for you, as it is a good 20 mins by taxi from the hotel. All said, it is fairly acceptable to me but I would give it a miss for some place more central.More
