Great location! ”
Overall satisfied. Great location in the heart of the town. Easy to find street food, all the city attractions are within walking distance. Friendly staff. just need to improved air- con inside the room. room temperature not so cold and uncomfortable to us. Also to ensure iron and iron board is provided as stated in the hotel facilities. Iron and iron board is very very important for us.!
Nice staff, room and location

Hotel with a touch of royal heritage”
I like the display. Its represent a work of art, a traditional heritage of Solo. Not to mention the hotel location, its perfect. The both royal palaces are just walking distance. Surrounded by a culinary display along the way. It would be great if the hotel puts some aromatherapy in some areas. It could give a whole experience of a royal living.
A big home feel”
Pros: spacious rooms, friendly staffs, excellent food (we dined at the restaurant), modern amenities with enough eclectic decorations making you feel like a home. Cons: located in one of the busiest one-way streets in Solo. To solve this, ditch your car, walk or take a rickshaw. The lobby is everbusy, making the stay is less personal and transactional. Third time for me to stay here. Will definitely return when I travel alone, but not when I stay with my aging parents easily get annoyed in a hectic circumstance.
Nicely designed hotel with spacious rooms at good value”
I stayed in a deluxe room on one of the non-smoking floors for two nights and had a pleasant, trouble free stay. The hotel has a nice swimming pool (with cold water haha), a decently equipped gym and huge beds. The only suggestion for improvement that I have is to secure the wi-fi network. Currently the wi-fi connection is not secured.
Dear Robert, Thank you for staying at The Royal Surakarta Heritage. We appreciate so much your kindness compliment of our excellent service and even more glad hear that you have a good time here. Hopefully we still your favorite choice for the future. Cannot wait to welcoming you back to our hotel soon. With warm regards, Galih Abi-Duty Manager.

an exotic retreat in the middle of the city”
The room is very spacious. Despite the fact that the bathroom is a bit run-down, the hotel is very nice place. The staff is very helpful specially Shinta in FO. She let us checked in a bit earlier since the room was ready. We definitely will return. Thank you!

I will share your comments with our department concerned as well as Shinta , definitely it would be another encouragement and spirit for us to give a better service. Thank you for sharing your experience and we look forward to welcome you back soon. Best Regards, Christy Atmojo Front Office Manager
The level of style in this hotel is very high considering the price. Wonderful vast lobby. Big breakfast lobby. Maybe too much clunky oversized wooden furniture in the rooms...and its a bit old-fashioned ..not high on power points for charging modern devices.

I LOVE this hotel! But the rooms need updating”
The gorgeous lobby and common areas, as well as the attentiveness of the staff, absolutely qualifies it as a "5-star" hotel, from my experience. The rooms are large and charming, but in dire need of deep cleaning and updating. Many non-working fixtures, and the bathrooms need complete renovation. The service is inconsistent (mostly due to language issues), but wow...they are all great, and made my visit quite pleasant and memorable. Strongly recommended!
Dear Mr.Andrew, Thank you for sharing your feedback of our hotel. On behalf of the team, I would like to apologize for issues met during your stay. We are concerned by the condition of our bathrooms and we are currently proceeding to the general cleaning room by room. Another action is scheduled with the refurbishment of the rooms, especially the cleanliness in all the detail rooms area. Once again, I would like to apologize if you were disappointed by the condition of the rooms and the housekeeping service. I will review together with the team how to prevent such a situation to happen again. However, we are very pleased to read that you have memorable stay with us. Again, I would like to apologies for the inconvenience you met during your stay. I will like to assure you that the team is working to improve the quality at The Royal Surakarta Heritage. Best regards, Lintangsari P. Handayani, General Manager.
A wonderful experience”
We have been to this hotel the second time and yet again it was a memorable experience. On the first day when we checked in the wifi in the room was not working and we were in Solo for business meetings. Thus the use of wifi was very essential. When we addressed it to the staff at the reception with great interest they attended to the situation and even upgraded us to another room as they rectified the issue. Their care and hospitality is efficient and filled with warm. I would certainly recommend anyone who visits Solo to stay here for many reasons: good hospitality, good location, good breakfast with wide variety and a great Javanese Experience and Hospitality. Thanks.
A great hotel deal -dont miss it”
This is avery well appointed hotel, quite grand and very nice rooms..and yet at usually very good rates. Don't miss it; I can't see why one would stay any where else. Good location ..not far from station, close to tourist attractions and shopping areas. Quiet area at night, not much life in Solo streets. Staff very nice; this is a great deal.
Awesome, happy family happy customer”
Booked for my mom's birthday. Requested for a surprise bday cake cos i am so far away from my family. The request was months before the actual booking date n thought the hotel might forget about it. Than, my mom sent the picture n made me soo happy for their service. It was free of charge!! Awesome awesome!! Love it so much!! Big beautiful room n excellent service
Would stay there again!”
I loved my stay and would love to stay there again. My room was delightful and had all the amenities. I particularly liked the displays of batik caps, the Wayang puppets, and other cultural artifacts from the Solo area. I had a good massage and wish I had discovered the health club earlier in my stay as it is very well equipped and the pool looked lovely. The dining room is lovely and the service is conscientious if not always timely. Their has been a change in management, and they are focused on improving the dining experience.
Great hotel at affordable price”
Enjoy my stay. The ambience brings me to the unique Java world. Staff is very helpful. Check in & check out very fast. Breakfast & lunch is superb. Even they rate it as 5 star, don't expect spa, night club or bar in this hotel. Overall, I enjoy my 32 night stay here.
Solo keraton vacation”
I personally select this hotel from agoda for i want to feel the keraton like atmosphere.indeed it was.. with the decorations and collections especially the MGallery. To maintain the standard of this hotel as a 5* star hotel with Mgallery collection..i strongly appreciate if my comments be highlighted. Ive read a few negative comments on the rooms standard before i came to this hotel not feeling skeptical at all but over the days when i stayed there especially at the mgallery room overlooking the beautiful mountains which i stayed in,im disheartened.Room really need to be refurbished with new furnitures and fixtures..and not forgetting a few nights of my stay. There was heavy rain for 2 consecutive night, i cld hear raindrops on my ceiling..ceiling cld hv cracks..cld hv seepage so before any accidents happen pls look into it. Anyway over all svces are very good. Its high time for the bldg needed to be reconstructed and refurbished.However i will still give a thumbs up. will come back to stay on this hotel again if i could and i hope the next time round the rooms are new with new fixtures and furnishings. good job to the staffs involved.👍
It was lovely. I was staying in Royal Heritage for 3 nights for business. The location is perfectly situated in the middle of Solo city, walking distance or less than 10 mins becak ride from Klewer Market. Plenty of street food around the hotel, even it is near Galabo, a street full of street food vendors and another 10 mins becak ride to the famous Warung Nasi Liwet street. The hotel is M Gallery by Accor, so I expected they put special attention on the interior, and it was. I stayed on the 3rd floor, I was surrounded by silk batik tulis wall hangings, so beautiful. The room was compact and but they really put effort on the interior design. Javanese touch were here and there, I have wayang puppets on the table and in the bathroom, batik stamp material on the wall, matching Kawung bed runner and curtain. My room was cleaned daily with the smell of jasmine essential oil filled the air. The bathroom was not too large but everything was functioned very well. The shower was good. They did a great job on renovating the hotel since it was a bank building before, although the building appearance is not pretty from the outside :) Will definitely stay here again.
5 star rooms with 4 star staff.”
The hotel itself was a sight to behold, where you are greeted with a quite grandiose albeit dimly lit hotel lobby. The staff did their jobs well enough but one would expect more proactiveness from a hotel that bills itself as a 5 star lodging. For example, I asked if the hotel provided day trips to certain places of interests, but the concierge said all is fully booked and didn't follow up with solutions or recommendations for transportation. However I think this is down to inexperience rather than outright incompetence. The rooms itself were spacious and finely furnished and the staff themselves did try their level best to make the stay pleasant (they were smiley and welcoming). The hotel is also very central, with the Kraton (palace), the Night Market/Fair and the Galabo (a whole row of street food dining) just a few minutes walk away. The downside though was the limited offerings for their breakfast, again, one expects more from a 5 star hotel. All in all, it was comfortable and aesthetically pleasing stay.
The hotel is located at one end of the main street in Solo. There is easy walking access to the batik village, Pasar Klewer (batik market) and one of the kraton. Hotel is comfortable and the warm reception on arrival is pleasant. Clean rooms. Internet available in rooms, although can be a bit patchy. A good choice.
The hotel is lovely in the lobby area, along the hallways, and even in the lifts. The dining room was comfortable with a fairly good breakfast and very attentive staff. Two problems surfaced, however, once we arrived. First, our room had no windows to the outside world, therefore no natural sunlight into the room and also a disincentive to even open the curtains, as other guests at the hotel would be able to see into the room. Second, there was quite a strong smell of smoke (from cigarettes) as we made our way from the lift to the room, despite the fact we were on a non-smoking floor. The open design of the hotel, while nice to look at, allows cigarette smoke and smell to pervade the entire building. I would highly recommend the management make the whole hotel free of smoking...and enforce it properly.
nice lobby and near palace surakarta”
we booked the deluxe goument experinece , the food was good..the hotel walking distance to everywhere ..try the Nasi Liwet Wongso Lemu /Cipto Sukani at Keprabon , or the satay at the Bu Haji Bejo..there are also street food open after 6 pm till midnight near hotel..for souvenir , try the home industri wingko solo at the Jalan Bali 7 , not like the wingko semarang..
