Nice comfortable bed
Very comfortable bed. Love it. The only setback was a WiFi. You can’t use it in the bedroom, but when you try to use it in the lobby area, it is virtually no speed at all. Please improve on that. It’s very important.

My flight got cancel because of Mount Sinabung eruption last June 2018. Mr.Alan didn't charge me any fee for cancelling airport transfer. My room got cancel because of 3rd agent website system. Mr.Alan did his best by booking rooms at nearby hotel and allow us to have a breakfast at Apollo Inn. The next day when we checked in at Apollo Inn, Mr.Alan give us the biggest room at Apollo Inn. Thank You Mr.Alan.
