Lovely staff - but just a normal hotel, not really "boutique"

Posted Jun 8, 2010
The hotel was fine and the staff couldn't have been more helpful - but don't come here expecting a "boutique" experience. You will get a good night's sleep, and the evening meal (to judge by what I had) is really tasty and well-presented - but if De Solo wants to aspire to "boutique" status, it needs to try a bit harder. The bathroom was clean-ish, but not overly so; the room was a little bit under-furnished (even though I like minimalist places) - there was nowhere to open out my case - and the breakfast isn't great. The TV has only Indonesian channels. In a funny way, I felt I was getting a much more authentic experience of an Indonesian hotel, in what is a very Indonesian and non-Western city. But I just thought I'd warn people who see the word "boutique" and think they're going to walk into a hotel with all Western-style conveniences - this wouldn't be the place for you. If, however, you like somewhere friendly and a laid-back atmosphere and you're not particularly bothered about much else, then book it !
