Best Hotel in Tasikmalaya with Great Staff
Posted May 22, 2016
Tasikmalaya, West Java doesn't have an abundance of good hotels, but among the hotels in the city the Santika strikes me as the best. The rooms are ample, pleasantly laid out in a modern manner with abundant light, and kept impeccably clean by the room staff. The reception area is expansive and, again, modern. The restaurant is also well laid out, and the offerings, which primarily feature Indonesian food (most guests to this and other hotels in Tasikmalaya are Indonesians), are very well prepared and tasty. I preferred this hotel's restaurant to many in town. The hotel also has a small fitness center with two treadmills and two bicycle-machines -- spare, but everything was working and the space for exercise was good. I will add too that each time I spoke with staff or managers (I speak Indonesian) they were superlative -- friendly, eager to help, very professional. All in all, this was a far better hotel than I had expected -- very good not just by Indonesian, but by global standards.
