We were there when the hotel was having a minor reservation. But it didn't bother us as we were out the whole day.

Breakfast is simple, starts at 7.00 am.

Located just a few metres walk from Tsunami museum. For those who love to stay fit by jogging/running, the hotel doesn't have gymnasium but right opposite the hotel is Blang Padang where you may go for a run.

Thank Zubaidah Z

This hotel is by far, the best in Banda Aceh. I moved here from another hotel which was completely horrible.

The hotel is located in the city centre, 15 minutes walking from Masjid Baiturrahman. Bear in mind that there is no public transportation in Aceh (taxi, bus, or anything). The option for transportation is either bentor (becak motor) or you can rent a car for IDR 600.000 per day or IDR 150.000 per hour from the hotel.

There is a lift and the bell boy is available upon request. Room is spacious, AC works properly, adequate speed for the wifi but acceptable (consider the location), hot and cold shower. I stayed one night in a superior room and I had to move to a suite because all the superior room was booked for a government official meeting. The price for the suite room is not as expensive as it is in Jakarta.

The hotel has a massage service, but I wouldn't recommend it. It feels like as if the therapist did not put any pressure when doing the massage, hence it feels like she was jut touching your skin.

The room is nice, quite spacious and good bedding although still full with mosquitoes. It is located at the city center, close to Aceh Tsunami Museum, in front of Blang Padang field where you can find a lot of food-stall in the evening, and not far from Rujak Aceh and a nice coffee shop. The hotel is still under construction, therefore, you may be disturb with the noise and the dust from construction activities. Other than that, it's quite nice hotel.

I stayed 4 days in this hotel on Dec 2014 which located walking distance to Aceh Tsunami Museum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aceh_Tsunami_Museum). The room is good and clean and also received good services from the hotel staffs. Breakfast its very simple, but I mostly enjoy to find/explore alternative Aceh food and coffee :)
