For the price we paid, we are satisfied; from the previous reviews, we were prepared for the hotel’s condition (needs updating). The staff are very helpful and accommodating and most speak English well. The place is geared for local travelers, so if you are an international traveler used to a lot of amenities and expect updated decor, this may not be the place for you. The cottages are cleaned/serviced daily, but because of the old condition of the building, the general appearance looks rundown. The bathroom is the one place that can benefit from deep cleaning - the floor and walls can be cleaned more, like what is done to the cottage floor tiles, which are a gleaming white. The bathroom vent needs dusting and the sink can probably be replaced. There is hot water but the water pressure varies.
Please note that the sleeping area is small at around 150 square feet but if you will just use it for sleeping at night, it is adequate. Each cottage is equipped with a small front porch area that can seat 4 so that is additional useable living space.
The breakfast buffet (included in the daily rate) is mostly Indonesian food and varies daily. The Western style items that are constants are white bread (no toaster provided), butter/margerine, jam/jelly, seasonal fruits (they served watermelon and papaya)and fruit juice (guava). There’s also coffee and tea. You should request a breakfast ticket from reception everyday.
