Excellent place to stay”

I have stayed with my wife and 2-year-old daughter. We enjoyed our stay very much. It is situated at a strategic location with all the attractions in Ancol area nearby. Ancol is a very large area which cannot be walked. So, you can take the free shuttle provided by the Ancol management which will take you to everywhere in Ancol area. The bus stop for this free shuttle is just behind the Ancol. Alternatively, you can take a taxi which is very cheap. Approx 15 minutes drive will cost you approximately 1.35 USD. The breakfast has lots of variety. It is from 6-10 am. They have a very good selection of foods. There is a restaurant in the opposite of Dermaga 16 which sells delicious foods. The hotel has a buggy ride for free which can drop you off in the Dermaga 16. You can go there by walking which should take approx 10 minutes. Thank you.

location in ancol is superb due to many things that you and family could explore, besides that plenty of restaurants that you could try, from seafood to junk food. Hotel facilities also perfect for kids with splash water availability in the pool, kids club the only thing is missing room service only available before 10PM, hope they could improve this one, as common hotels will provide 24 hrs.

Great hotel with nice facilities. The pool is kid friendly and the location is very convinient if you like to go to Dufan. The only things that makes me turns down is the food. Even though the variety of food on breakfast is much but the taste is not that good. My sunny side up egg is burnt as well as the sausages. But after all I would like to stay at this hotel again for my next staycation.

Best facility to stay if you want to play in Dufan for several days”

we stayed in the hotel during weekend after visiting and playing in Dufan, for simple reason: after tired playing then we can immediately rest 😀, and this facility fulfilled the purpose since the hotel is located very close, less than 15 minutes. the room is clean and simple actually, television signal was not quite good as children wanted to watch disney junior but picture was blurry. they may need to add stocks hair dryer (wifey requested but it was out of stock lent for other customers, not dedicated for each room). breakfast facility was ok with big space although variety of food was not much. overall it was fun to stay at this hotel especially it’s located inside Ancol and close with various facilities there.
