GG House - Happy Valley
Ranked #22 of 57 Bogor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 June 2015 via mobile

This hotel is based just outside Bogor. It has a beautiful garden which is very well maintained. I hoped they would have done the same with the rooms. The rooms are not clean, thin matrass, very old bathroom, broken lights etc. There I no air-conditioning. You can't close the windows fully which brings quite some noise into the room from the river and the mosque early morning. The breakfast consist of slices of roasts white bread with jam and nasi. The staff is extremely friendly. But after a 14 hour flight and a year of hard work this was quite a disappointment.

We only stayed here for one night, which might have been enough anyway. The view from the room was absolutely amazing. A great valley with sawa's and one huge river that is extremely loud. You can't hear yourself think, it's so loud. It is definitely worth it, especially for such a short stay.
We had no problems sleeping because the noise subsides quite a bit when you close the door. It is just a bit louder than an average ac. Breakfast and dinner were good.

Quiet, relaxing and happy people. There people who speak english, at least they understand you. Also there is a man who understands dutch and can talk a little as well. The restaurant/garden is really relaxing, there are pretty birds too. Not a lot of choice when it comes to breakfast. Only bread with jam and nasi/bami. In the weekends the road to the hotel is pretty much closed because of traffic in the direction of puncak. At our room, the river was loud. After one day you will be used to it. The swimming pool is amazing. Nice, paradise look. All kinds of insects around there tho.. We enjoyed our stay!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid-September ‘14. It has some very positive features, but there are shortcomings as well.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking a river and agricultural fields. If a quiet getaway is your goal this might be a good choice, but if your purpose is to experience the core of Bogor, be aware that this property is on the outskirts and at least a ½ drive to the center, through Bogor’s typically horrendous traffic. There is little of interest near the hotel, and although there are several restaurants not too far away, it would be a very unpleasant walk along a busy and unattractive street. Fortunately we had a car and driver, and we were able to go out for dinner (we recommend Raffles, about a mile away – attractive setting, good food, and very friendly service).

GG consists of several buildings arrayed down an attractively landscaped hillside. The reception/dining room is at the top and the rooms are in several buildings down the hill, with a very pretty pool at the bottom. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful.

Our room (106) was large with a very pleasant balcony overlooking the valley. There were two twin beds with one night stand between them, a side chair and table, desk, and armoire. The tiled bathroom was large with a shower and there was adequate counter space. Wifi worked well. At one time this was a very attractive room, with interesting built-in features, such as stained-glass sidelight windows around the doorway to the balcony. However, it now is desperately in need of upgrading and redecorating. For example, there was a cigarette burn in one of the bed coverlets, the mattresses sagged, the bed box springs had no cover and the fabric was frayed and dirty, the pillows were lumpy and flat, the bed linens and bath towels were dingy and threadbare, there was only cold water in the bathroom sink, the toilet tissue holder came apart at the slightest touch, and the shower fixtures were rusted. It seemed the owners have given much more attention to the outside areas of the hotel than to the rooms.

Other reviewers have criticized the breakfast offerings, and although we found it sparse it was certainly adequate and the patio setting was very pleasant.

this hotel is located near 2 rivers whith a beautiful view seeing the rice fields. but because of the rivers a bit noisy. a perfect start of your holiday. breakfast is simple but good. as most rooms and other accommodation are not on the same level they are connected by stone stairs which can be come a bit slippery by rain.

Room Tip: try the to get one of the low rooms

Stayed here for two nights at the start of a 10 day trip to Java and Bali. Don't let the road to here put you off - it really is a lovely place to stay. My room was very large and bright and I had a lovely view from my balcony over the river and fields. As other reviewers have commented, the bathrooms could do with a bit of renovation however, everything was kept clean and there were no issues. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and the food that was available in the restaurant I found to be quite sufficient. Wi-fi was also available, but only from the restaurant area. The bed was comfortable and I managed to have a good sleep - the river was no problem however it was the muezzin that woke me up the first morning a little after 4am! All in all, I would be very happy to return to this oasis.

Happily surprised to have found this gem hidden away in an off the road, almost off road valley.
Te beauty of the rice paddies, the ever rushing of the river below the building are stunning.
Surrounded by montains ,lovely plants and flowers one comes to peace.
Lovely gardens, sprakling pool, very friendle and helpful staff complete the picture.
Food and service excellent. To topit up we had heavy rain and thunder at night ,in the morning sunshine and the mist from the rain hanginig in the valleay....
