Reviewed 28 November 2011

I stayed here with my wife and son to attend a cousin's wedding. check-in was fast and pleasant. the room is OK in terms of size and furnishing. some things I don't like:

- TV was not working properly, the channels are blurred
- Shower is fixed at the wall, this is the most impractical kind of shower.....

The location is surprisingly remote... you have to go thru a small lane to arrive there. its walking distance to Solo Grand Mall (although Solo Square would be a better mall).

Breakfast is OK. The biggest problem I have is with the lift. Only 4 lifts serving 25 floors of approximately 30 rooms. waiting time for lift is quite unacceptable at about 10 minutes when its crowded.

I think the website gives an honest representation of their rooms, I got mine exactly like how I saw it on their website.

Other than that everything else is quite OK. Its a decent stay, though not exciting or excellent.

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel and just loved the new-ness of everything. My room is fairly large with a 2-seater sofa facing a rotate-able flat screen tv. On the opposite side is the queen size bed, so you can watch either way. The room is well lit and very comfortable, gives one a very cozy feeling. If you like high floors, this hotel will suit you as the lowest is 9th floor (2nd-8th being apartments) and the highest is 25th.

The staff is very friendly and courteous. Overall, a very pleasant impression.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the ongoing construction work at the next door shopping mall as there are n...

Just stayed for one night at the Solo Paragon Hotel, and my company rented me a 2 bedrooms suite for the night. Basically it is a decent room, although a bit small for a 2 rooms suite. It is clean and has a modern/minimalistic designs so commonly found in many large cities across the nation.

However for me the hotel has no characteristics. When I go to smaller towns like Solo, I kind of expect to see a hotel with a little bit of cultural nuances in it, especially since Solo is trying hard to build an image as a cultural center for Indonesia. This hotel is very much similar like other large hotels that you can simply take away the brand name and replace it with a big brand names and people would not notice the difference. The room is a bit 'cold', not because of the air conditioning, but it lacks a personality. Decent place for a short stay, but me personally would no enjoy a long stay here.

On the plus side, the bed is very comfortable, and I do like the pillows that they use, they are so soft and fluffy that I did not have any trouble at all sleeping in the night.

Food wise is quite decent, I had dinner at the restaurant downstairs because it was raining that night and I felt too lazy to go out. Had a nice noodle and a very good traditional tea mixture. One of the best tea that I have ever enjoyed!

The staff are friendly and polite, and they are quite helpful with my request of doing a more than once a day cleaning up because I used my suite for meetings.

All-in-all, it is not recommended for tourists who would like to enjoy the traditional Solo, but a more than decent place to stay for business purpose.

We were advised to stay at this hotel due to it is newly opened. The facilities are great. Children and big pools are available, with fitness center near it. They have a kid center, where you children can read books, play doll, cars, robots, watch DVD (DVDs are available).

The hotel itself is very clean, with nice and helpful staffs. Good but not so various selection of breakfast is available, with jamu in it! There are taxis with argometer in front of hotel, so it is easier to go everywhere in Solo. If you want to take traditional transportation, there are tricycle (becak) park in front of the hotel.

There is a middle sized mall near hotel (Solo Grand Mall), on walk distance where you can buy light meal or soft drink at supermarket, or have some fast food. There also is a decent Gudeg Restaurant near hotel and several laundry service.
