“I’ll stay there with whatever reason”, said i one day when this hotel showed 70% of its outer look. 

I always wanted to visit Artotel. I was curious since 2013. I wanted to stay there with a reason more than “because i want to”.

Well, it happens this week! I made a random reservation out of the blue and asked my mom to stay there. Mom never imagine herself staying in this kind of hotel. By ‘this kind’ meaning that a monster-y, surreal illustration too much of colors here and there kind of hotel.

Well, maybe if the hotel offers a non-stop Mahadewa’s series on tv, she would wanted to come. I don’t blame her, i like it too (but not that fanatic though).

It was a great decision. Having a moment together even though you’re just sitting in the same room, doing your own thing, not talking, is very priceless. We’re doing things that we adore the most: the comfortable silence.


From watching our favorite FOX series together (Castle, Cold Case, Criminal Minds, NCIS), fighting over who gets which side of the sofa, debating over why the Dolce Gusto machine won’t work (because we haven’t turn on the power button), talking about future plan during dinner; this 3 days 2 nights has been superb.

Let me finish this post with a video (in bahasa Indonesia) here. More like my attempt to get her attention….
