Blending The Old and The New at Ibis Styles and Novotel SoloHospitality Updates
Arguably the heart of Javanese identity, the city of Solo, once the seat of the great Mataram kingdom, is steeped in century-old traditions. Inspired by the local Javanese culture, the recently rebranded ibis Styles Solo tastefully blends the old and the new.
A vibrant and colourful design dominates the hotel, from the lobby - where traditional Javanese puppet drawings adorn the ceilings and guests can lounge on purple, orange and red sofas - to the 152 newly renovated rooms and modern meeting rooms complete with hightech facilities, making it a suitable choice to stay for both business and leisure travellers.
The hotel also features eight family rooms that can accommodate parents and kids in the existing bedding. All rooms include complete amenities, a refrigerator and mini bar, a personal safe box, wardrobe and a 32”LED TV that includes a selection of children channels. Free wi-fi is available throughout the whole hotel area.
A mere 5-minute drive from the train station and a 20-minute ride from Adi Sumarmo International Airport, ibis Styles Solo is easily accessible and strategically located in the city centre, only a stone’s throw from various historical and leisure attractions as well as commercial offices - getting around the city with the hotel as starting point is simple and convenient.
The all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet with both international and local delicacies is served at the hotel’s light-flooded restaurant, held in a bright and colourful design. The poolside links the hotel to Novotel Solo, which also manages by AccorHotels. Adjacent to Novotel Solo, ibis Styles Solo offers extra facilities to all its guests available at Novotel, such as the Kid’s Club, Fitness Club, Sauna and Jacuzzi.
As one of the first AccorHotels properties in Indonesia, Novotel Solo can look back on two decades of exceptional service and hospitality in the Javanese city.
Novotel Solo recently refurbished its rooms and upgraded its facilities to keep the service standard continuously high. This way, the hotel remains a favourite choice among its loyal guests and at the same time attracts new travellers, both leisure and pleasure.
Novotel Solo features 142 spacious and comfortable rooms in three different categories. Freshly renovated, the rooms now introduce a modern décor in a relaxed ambience. But the hotel does not forget its Indonesian roots, as Javanese ornaments embellish the furniture.
The Andrawina Restaurant, located next to the pool, offers a rich breakfast buffet and contemporary cuisine consisting of both international and local dishes throughout the day. To wind down after a long day, Saraswati Bar conveys a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.
A visit to the hotel’s fitness center or InBalance Spa is another option to rejuvenate. The wide-range spa menu and jacuzzi ensure the well-being of the hotel guests. The Kids Club offers fun, entertaining activities for children and families and will keep them happy throughout their stay.
More than just a family-friendly hotel, Novotel Solo also takes care of its business travellers drawing on its long experience of organising meetings, functions and seminars. While many hotel meeting rooms are small and windowless, the Prambanan rooms at Novotel Solo have glass walls, allowing natural light to flow in during the day.
