This hotel used to carry the Sheraton brand name. But not long after the fall of Indonesia's second president Suharto, the hotel was rebranded Lor In Solo, rumor had it that the former President's family had major shares in the hotel, so a name change was intended to fool the people that the former President had sold the hotel to foreign investors.
Rumors aside, Lor In Solo is arguably the finest hotel in Solo. The setting is very resort like, the spacious lobby, the American-sized rooms, and the coffee shop is beautifully decorated with Javanese teak wood and lovely Javanese style furniture. There is also a big swimming pool. The coffee shop (Sasono Bujono) is located right next to the pool and has open-air seating area. The buffet breakfast spread is generous and worth waking up to. Once again, the resort feel is very pronounced, so you might think you were somewhere in Bali rather than in a busy city in Central Java.
The hotel sits smack right in the middle of paddy fields not far from the airport. From the city center it's about 10-15 minutes drive by car. For the leisure traveller, the location is perfect because you can get away from the hustle and bustle of Solo. For the business traveller though, the hotel's rather remote location might become a problem.
All in all, the Lor In Solo is a resort-feel hotel which can be a great base if you want to explore the Solo are or even the rest of Central Java. I enjoyed my stay here and definitely will stay here again if given the chance.
Unique Quality: - The only five-star resort-feel hotel in Solo
- Helpful and friendly staff with typical Javanese hospitality
- Great pool with great views of paddy fields
- American-sized rooms in traditional Javanese teak wood decor
