I did not stay here but came here for the food. It's a very cozy place, serving good food and drinks where services rendered are top notch. The location of the cafe is very near many top attractions in Bukittinggi. Good wifi connection and good place to mingle around with the patrons. I love it.....

i can't consider this is a hotel because it was like a rental rooms on top of a bar. The name itself is a cafe or bar. bit noisy at night time with singging and chatting. for us was fine as we slept like a baby due to exhausted after a day tour to bukittinggi areas. it provides a breakfast which started at 7am but usually the meal will be prepared at 8am. 3 only choices for breakfast 2 western and 1 asian dishes.poor ventilation in the bar. the workers slept on the couches of the bar. no room provided for the employees. the atmosphere was nicotine smokes.
the worst was the spiral stairs. inconvenience for family with baby or small children or even any guest with big luggage. this should not be a rental room or hotel as considered in any hotel booking apps (i booked with Agoda) because the stairs is totally does not conform the safety requirement in any emergency evacuation.
the other emergency exit is through the balcony of junior room which could be locked by the room's guest. i stayed in the junior room with the balcony which i found was a relief as we were the nearest to the exit should anything happens.
the hotel provided the shuttle to the airport which cost IDR60k/pax or the private shuttle IDR300 per vehicle. both are same as if you book the private shuttle there will be another passenger.
my friend make the reservation with the man at the counter . he said IDR300k shuttle we can make the stops at anywhere during the trip. it was like booking the car and the driver.

i do not recommend any traveller to use the shuttle service from the hotel actually the shuttle and the private car were the same.
we waited for 45minutes for the driver to come. we pay extra for the same service. the driver who was the owner of the cafe n hotel came late and without any regret and apologised. he said he wont make any stop as the service was for only to the airport. this was contradict to the man who told us about the service.

the car was his own car. dirty and he brought another man in the car. even he was the hotel employee, i think the driver and the employee were taking the advantage in getting the necessities of the hotel in Padang as the trip to airport was also the trip to buy the stuffs for them. the phone number of the hotel was no longer in used. we try search in the internet for the number and even in the receipt of the hotel it was the same number.

i wont stay in this place again.do not use the shuttle from this hotel. it was their own car and we pay extra for lousy service.

Very Good for family, we've been served nicely and friendly by the staff. I came with my wife with 3 children, we enjoy the wifi, flat TV, AC, anytime coffee or tea, near to Jam Gadang, Fort De Kock, Limpapeh Bridge, and many more nice places at Bukittinggi. So, we enjoy more fun at Jam Gadang and its surroundings. Overall, Two Thumbs Up for De Kock Cafe!

Wanted to go there for a relax dinner.
After order 2 drink and 2 meals, had to wait 45 min and asking twice the waiter of our food.
He just keep repeating that it's coming but nothing came.
The waiter were lazing at the bar, do not care at all about customers and the worst he had very condesentant attitude until we had no choice than to cancel our order.

My advice for the owner, please teach the very basic of attitude to the waiter and at least they could be polite and keep a smile on their face like in the rest of Indonesia except in de Kock cafe. ..
