Nice Hotel to Stay
I have enjoyed myself very much during my stay at Novotel Solo. The staff there are very friendly and the services they provide are good. Although there are not much of facilities, like the swimming pool is not really posh, but still can usable and nice. So I will recommend that any travellers check out novotel solo when they go visiting Solo in Central Java.
Unique Quality: The staff are very friendly and kind. They have a high service quality standard. You can find a nice restaurant in the hotel too. They serve nice food.
I know this hotel since a long time ago now, as coming quiet often in Solo for business. Well situated (town centre), no headache for transport from airport the shuttle bus is free with the hotel booking, just need to state my flight number and I have the car already waiting me at the airport. rooms are ok, clean and maintain, the food at the restaurant is very good, big range of dishes on the menu (Indonesian, asian and western), big plus is the breakfast, you really have what you pay for. staff warm and cheersfull, WIFI is available in all the hotel no broadband. In conclusion, a good hotel with high standard compare to the other hotels in Solo.... I advise you to try the Novotel Solo
Unique Quality: For sure, there are 2 + for this hotel, the location in the middle of the town centre (hotel is quiet even the location) and the big Spa-fitness centre of the hotel, which was free during my stay. I could enjoy everything jacuzzi, steam room, fitness floor, ....
Directions: Just stay on the main street in Solo which is the Jalan Slamet Riyadi and you will find the hotel without headache
Cater more for business travellers
I stayed here for one night on Dec 19, must say Grand Mercure Phoenix Hotel in Jogja is better(both belongs to Accor Group). Although the room is bigger but furnishing is not as artistic as her sister hotel.
The hotel staffs are not well trained as they don't know how much airport tax is for International travellers. Don't change your US$ here as the rate is really exorbitant!
There are not many hotels in Solo so I would recommend to those if they don't mind staying in a business hotel. It is about 20 mins to Solo Airport.
Unique Quality: Nothing unique
Directions: Located in town centre
The Best Hotel in Town
Of all the hotels I checked out while I was here, Novotel seems to be the best hotel with a decent spa, pool and international standards of service. The rest seem a little run down. The rates are pretty reasonable and ranges from USD40-60.
Solo's most centrally located hotel
The Novotel Solo is part of the Accor hotel chain from France and the only international standard hotel that is located on Solo's main thoroughfare Jalan Slamet Riyadi. A stone's throw away from Solo's major attractions (The Sultanate, Batik markets, and other traditional markets), shopping and eating venues in Jalan Slamet Riyadi is also within walking distance.
When we stayed there, the staff were really friendly and tried to meet our needs and always with impeccable Javanese hospitality. The rooms were spacious and very modern and as a nice touch, the hotel provided a mineral water dispenser just right next to the elevator on each floor. So you won't never go thirsty in this hotel :). There are one restaurant (which serves lovely buffet breakfast including traditional cuisines) and a bar, which is frequented by Solo's expats during weekend nights. There's is also a tropically designed swimming pool area.
I was really satisfied with my stay in the Novotel Solo and would definitely stay here again when I return to this city!
Unique Quality: - The only international standard hotel on Jalan Slamet Riyadi
- Close to major attractions
- Impeccable service from staff, with Javanese hospitality
- Water dispensers on every floor!
