                Recommended only if service means nothing to you”

                I give them credit for location, spaciousness, cleanliness, and polite staff. However, it seems like they either discriminate those booking from OTA or have a very bad internal communication system. I booked two rooms on 1 May 2019 via Agoda for staying 4 nights on 7 - 10 June 2019. I’ve specifically mentioned that I’d like non-smoking rooms, one with large bed another with twin beds, connecting door, early checking, and high floor. Upon my arrival on 11am, I was denied early checking in and told that the non-smoking rooms were unavailable. When I finally could check in near 2pm, I was told that my rooms both had twin beds,, on the low floor, and without connecting door. I understand that any special request depends on availability upon checking in. However I wonder if they ever read my request to completely miss all 5 requests. Additionally, I found a used towel from previous guest still nestled in my wardrobe and the phone didn’t work.

                Dear Mr. Prajnya, Thank you for your review, and it was our pleasure to have you stay with us. I am delighted you enjoyed our service, and our central location enabled you to experience the best of Solo. In the meantime, we are sorry for any disappointed with the room allocation. I'm afraid due to high season period, we could not able to grant all of those request. But I believe, our team has been prepared two twin rooms based on the bookings that we received and also connecting rooms in the second day. However allow me to express my sincerest regret and apologies as I am distressed that we fell short of your expectations. Mr. Prajnya, thank you again for sharing your experience, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Budi Wahjono General Manager

                the location is very strategic, in the heart of Solo (Slamet Riyadi street). Very easy if we want to explore Solo. The Hotel is also nice and clean, but the restaurant is to small i think, because in breakfast time when the room fully booked its very crowded and hard to get a table.

Definitely will go back there next time I go to Solo. And oh, the location is a BIG plus ! And I love the Batik store in the lobby. Simply the best.

                Good service and great location”

                Hotel staff was very friendly and service oriented. Taxis always available in front of he hotel

                We enjoy our stay at Novotel, although there's inconvenient about the room. Water temperature tap can not set up, stuck at hot temperature, but still at acceptable temperature. Safety deposit box was broken, and the cupboard door was very noisy everytime its opened. Soon after check out they sent me a questioner about the hotel, and I told about that. The manager was very responsive, he emailed and call me to say sorry about the inconvenient, and explained that they will soon repairing. Really appreciate they respond, and I have a good impression for they service.
