Reviewed 1 September 2015

this is my first time to stay in this hotel, they said this hotel is the best in town.

check in was fast and simple, i have my room on smoking floor. staff was polite and helpful.

my deluxe room was big and clean, bed are comfort. bathroom big and clean but towels are so date... need to be change with the new ones

breakfast has some type of food, but very basic and not really tasty.

wifi connection was fast and you have to reconnect all the time when you want to use it.

the location was in the center of town, easy to walk around the hotel, there are some shop and place to eat around.

When we first entered the hotel, we recognize that it was a very well managed lodge for a relatively small town. Strategic location to go anywhere, friendly atmosphere, and the room is undoubtely very clean.

Istana offers enough for its price. While the smallest room is around 600k idr, it is not even close to be small.

A big doublebed, cozy lights and far the most important, a silent AC (silence is hard to find in indonesia) and a nice bathroom will give you more than you actually need for a short stay. Escpecially the free gym is an overkill for short vacations.

But the luxury strikes again at thr breakfast. If you want to try indonesian food, this buffet offers most of the traditional dishes, served in a more western way, together with fresh fruity, toasts, waffels and desserts.

Nice to have some luxury together with your beloved one, but it would be too much for me alone

It was hard rain when i reach tulungagung. And it was night. I've been driving for hours. so i was searching for rest. They have deluxe room for me and it was really comfort and clean room. Then i went to spa, it was outstanding. My body felt so well. The food is okay. If i passing through tulungagung again i will come back again to istana.

The WIFI has not been working for a while so if you're there to work call ahead to see if it is fixed. However, whether you stay there or not you must visit the spa. It is the best massage in Indonesia by far; not so much for the ambience but for the actual massage itself. Ask for the bath to be extra hot as the water is a bit cool and ask for Tika. She is fabulous!
