Super friendly guesthouse and good location”

Very friendly and helpful

i stayed here on my way to pulau weh (sabang). although the room was basic with a shared bathroom, i would definitely recommend the crystall guesthouse. the manager, fikri, is super friendly and very helpful. the location is also good. it is on the way to the ferry terminal, yet still only five minutes ) by becak from the town centre, restaurants, atms etc. the food at the stalls in front is cheap and tasty. by the way, the exchange rate at the airport was quite good: to the usd both inside where you pay for your visa on arrival and with the money exchange just outside and to the left. the maximum withdrawal at the danomon atm in the centre is idr per transaction.

Good location, clean but unexpected”

value for money and good location. Around 20 minutes walking from Masjid Baiturrachman.

It's not so far after 001 Seulawah Plane Monument and if you already sees Nusa Cendana Losmen, it is mean that you already passed it. Its building unseen from the main street if you not paying really good attention because of the tree that overgrown in front of it. The location is good and beside the Join Kupi cafe. around the guesthouse is many hawker food and grocery store for your supplies. Although the guesthouse is not really what you've think, but quite descent especially the front room. the sheet were quite clean and room is cozy too. It might need some improvement and build up but the location is superb when it is come to the tourist attraction by walking distance. The tourist attraction around the walking distance is : PLTD Apung, Aceh Thanks The World, Tsunami Monument, 001 Seulawah Plane Monument, Tsunami Museum, Kherkoff, Gunongan, Aceh Museum, and Masjid Raya Baiturrachman (approx 20 minutes). it's proximity to the Ulhee Lheue Port added to it's pros. Very convenient for you to catch the morning becak or by walking (around 1 hour) I got free upgrade to air conditioned room because it's a low season :D

great location but uncomfortable room”

Great location in the middle of Banda Aceh, Easy to go around the city for shopping or sight seeing

A little bit noisy in the night since it is right in the middle of the city. The room is just barely comfy to stay. Toilet is shared with other rooms. Avoid if you can. If you just want a place to sleep and expect nothing else then this is it for you since it is right in the middle of Banda Aceh.

Very bad. Improve or close it down.”

It was a last minute boooking and I regretted immediately. The main entrance was always open but no one was there. I had to wait for about 20 minutes before I got to check in. I didn't put any expectation as I wanted to stay just for one night. Room was very basic and still acceptable for me. However, I really can't tolerate the cleanliness of the ground floor bathroom/toilet, disgusting. The floor was really muddy, very dirty, rubbish piling up. The bathroom/toilet is under the stairs, so people can still see you everytime they climb up the stairs. The only good thing about this was the owner's brother who was really friendly and try to provide the best service. He drove me (with good price) to almost all main attractions in Banda Aceh despite of limited time I had and offered for airport transfer. If the owner still want to do business, please please renovate and improve your guesthouse condition and service or else, just close it down.

Near Tsunami Museum and hawkers area

The room is quite OK for the price I paid. Just there were lots of mosquitoes at night. Some of the room without window but the room with balcony gives view of hawkers selling food at night. Locations just walking distance to Museum Tsunami Acheh but relatively far from Masjid Raya. Good place for overnight stay if you plan to go to Sabang.

staff, location, western toilet

We stayed two nights here, and as it was start for our trip, this place was kind of shock. But we were just happy to have bed and aircon was great. staff was really friendly and talkative, and he gave us room with windows and balcony, which we did appreciated very much. This is not the nicest place to stay as it is very very basic, but location and guy running it make our stay for worth while. There is plenty of food stall around, so we did get food easily though. But not for the price of room as it was told.

We booked fan room for 1 night. At first when we reached the place we had to wait for the owner. Then the room was quite dusty with spider webs everywhere but still acceptable for backpackers. The only concern is the cleanliness especially the bathroom. The rubbish seemed to be piling and had not been taken care of. Hence, the place had less privacy as the main entrance was always open for anybody to come in. The good thing is it is near to the attractions and you can easily find food around.
