Not what it looks like
Posted 1-Dec-2011 on Hotels
The apartment building looks to be located centrally, but in fact is accessed through a very busy neighborhood, one that most people would rather avoid.
The rooms perhaps looked like the pictures on the internet years ago but don't look that way anymore. They are dirty and noisy. There was an old pan, two dishes one glass and a knife that wouldn't cut through a plastic band in the kitchen. The lobby smelled of cigarettes as did everyplace else.
The apartments seem to be a favorite of single male visitors to Indonesia with things other than seeing the sights on their mind. I would not bring a family here.
Will not return, but if you want cheap basic western accommodations in Indonesia and don't mind getting ads from massage parlors shoved under your door at all hours, then you might want to try it out.
