Staycation

This weekend I decide to stay at a local hotel that just opened its premise last year. Santika Mega City Bekasi is conveniently located at the toll exit of Bekasi City. Furthermore, the hotel sits on top of a big mall. However, despite its strategic location, I was surprised that the hotel itself is tucked away from the main street and that the windows offer no view except the adjacent wing and a slight peek into the mall’s cinema. Pretty disappointing, but I guess this hotel is not built to satisfy the holidaymakers. I’m pretty sure weekdays see more customers coming in to do business at this suburban city of Jakarta, Indonesia.

However we do need to give credit when it’s due. The ambience is pretty calming, the service is good and the food is delicious (well, coming from a culinary amateur who knows no other comments except ‘delicious’ and ‘excellent’). 🙂

The lobby is on the 5th floor

I should opt for Aston for the next staycation.
