My choice for this hotel was based on the central location in Bogor and the review of my fellow Trip Advisors whom I respect their opinion though here I might disagree a bit.
most if no all the stayers we encountered are Indonesian so seam a popular with the locals.
Me and my grp took 8 rooms for 8 nights, starting with the facade of the building it looked really nice, the lobby not so much (but that's a personal opinion) it just lacked grandeur that outside promised.
Staff at the reception were professional and friendly, in fact I'll take this moment to acknowledge all the staff for being very welcoming even those who had limited English speaking ability. and a special mention to the restaurant crew, just delightful bunch.
the rooms were defiantly not big though we took the Deluxe rather than smaller Superior room. Bathroom again small , the wardrobe tiny and with 3 hangers and an odd position for the safe box, where you need to get on your hands and knees to use.
No view from my room, though I requested by email prior & in person to face the botanic garden there was no effort made or acknowledgment to accommodate this.
The towels provided were so tarnished and old they are the one used when this hotel is still called Golden Flower (or something) though clean I am sure did not give sense of professional service.
Food at the restaurant was good & delicious, however drinks I think were over priced and when talking about drinks I mean juices and coffees because this is a "Dry" hotel meaning no bar and alcohol sold.
lastly but not least and this is just I think is unfair but understand its common in Indonesia, when a car/taxi pulls in to pick up or drop off (we are talking (30 seconds) there is a charge of 3000 rps for this every single time. so expect that to be added to your fare, unless stopped out side the barrier and walk the 42 ( I counted) steps to the hotel door.
