De Solo Boutique Hotel & Resto is a cosy friendly midrange-style hotel at flashpacker prices and depending on the room, can be a great deal.

Conveniently located in the northwest of the city centre, De Solo occupies two buildings—an older, but characterful bungalow comprising the reception and restaurant along with a handful of guest rooms and a modern four-storey building with the bulk of the rooms. Avoid the rooms in the older section as they are dingy and run down, and request a room with a balcony in the newer building—a higher floor will offer a better view (there’s a lift).

Smart lodgings.

Decent sized tiled air-con rooms are clean, warm and inviting, however a tad tired, but offer a comfy sleep and some charming local character in this modern-styled stay. Coordinated decor counts wooden beds with spring mattresses, but unfortunately the sheets are a little grey and threadbare and could do with replacing (or a least a decent soak) but batik runners and carved wooden lamp bases jolly the scene.

Amenities include TVs, tea-making facilities and a minibar which is strangely positioned between the beds in some twin rooms—easy to grab a coldie in the middle of the night! For folks who have to work, rooms harbour a desk too. A few rooms (but not all) are graced with tiny unfurnished balconies which offer a pleasant spot catch the breeze. Ensuite bathrooms are small, but clean enough, modern and functional with hot-water showers.

Comfortable dining area.

Suite rooms are not a true suites but offer more space and some seating, we didn’t think they were worth the extra coin and if you are travelling with friends or kids you’d be better off requesting two deluxe rooms with connecting doors. Buffet breakfast and afternoon tea are included in the rate and can be enjoyed in the delightful leafy garden restaurant (or undercover if it’s raining), a pleasant spot to while away a few hours with a book too. Weary travellers can enjoy a massage in De Solo’s spa. Laundry service is also available.

Staff we met were friendly and had a little English but were overcome with shy giggles dealing with a foreigner (yes, we were asked for selfies). If you’re looking for more comfort than a basic backpacker, De Solo Boutique Hotel & Resto is not a bad option, particularly with some booking site offers, but just be sure you choose the right room. Alternatively if a cookie-cutter chain has more appeal, centrally located Red Planet Solo is one of the cleanest we’ve encountered.
