This is a very tired and run down place that is dark and dingy and somewhat eccentric. It does have a huge amount of character and feels somewhat homey and relaxed. The room we were given was close to the road and noisy and quite dirty. The bedding, curtains and towels were all dirty, overused and in need of replacement. The bathroom was not adequate, being very old and the shower did not work well; it took about 10 mins for the hot water to start running. The toilet did not work well.
The staff are friendly but do the minimum and sometimes could not be found at all.
The wifi did not work in the rooms. The swimming pool is clearly not maintained.
This place is cheap but not good value. Its location is excellent, right next door to the Tugu which has a very good restaurant,the Melati, which is not expensive, and has a fantastic menu. It is a short walk to the Alun Alun and to the train station.
I noticed that some of the rooms at the Splendid are being renovated so perhaps it is getting the makeover it desperately needs.
It is a shabby old place and quite dark. I may stay again if they renovate!More
