Expensive rundown rooms
Hotel 61 is located on Jalan Panglima Polem right above the A&W fast food joint.
The staff at reception are professional and the hallways of the hotel look terrific, but unfortunately the rooms are below par especially when considering the cost. The first thing we noticed when entering the room we saw was burn marks on the desk and mould on the shower curtain. Additionally, there's absolutely nothing else in the rooms that makes them feel as modern as you'd expect in the price range. You do get a soft bed with white sheets, air-con, TV and in-room WiFi, but the rooms sadly feel a little rundown. Still, it's one of the better hotels in Banda Aceh and if you're willing to pay the extra money, you may well find the rooms satisfactory.
