A Pretty Good Budget Hotel

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Dec 2017via mobile
We stayed for 2 days at Hotel Safira Magelang. At first when i saw this hotel, it looked creepy, because the exterior seemed old, the painting cracked and i saw some fungus on the outer wall of the entrance. I started to doubt about this hotel and felt a bit worried for my 2 days stay.

When i checked in at the reception desk, all was well and quick. The customer service so friendly and helpfull. They gave us mango juice as welcoming drink.

I got room number 222, and when i entered the room, i was so amazed because the room was so so spacy, so clean, and all furnitures in a very good condition. Very contraditive with the look from the outside. The shower worked well, both cold and hot water, clean towels, and sufficient bathroom amenities. I was pleased.

Breakfast was good enough: bubur ayam, jenang sumsum, salad bar, soup, rice, noddle, vegetables, sausage, pastry (not to many), pudding, fruits (only water melon and honeydew), juice (1 kind per day), coffee and tea.

I think they can do better to make more variety of foods and beverages.

The dining room was a little bit small so during breakfast time, i have to wait sometime to find a table.

I think what Hotel Safira should do is repainting their entrance, make it more modern and sophisticated, because first impression is so so important in building brand image.

As for budget hotel that costs only IDR 590.000/ 2 nights stay (IDR 295.000/day), i overall satisfied with it and would come back again and also recommend it to my relatives.

Thank you Hotel Safira!

When we were booking this hotel by phone, they advice expensive room price & we were think the hotel is good.
But when we had arrieved there, the room is small (not suitable w/ the price). This hotel almost has no facilities (like pool/fitness/spa), meal/drink service not 24 hrs, breakfast menu not variaty but main menu are deliciuous enough for Indonesian taste. And then environment surround the hotel are very quiet.
