The place of this hotel is good, next to taqsim square and istiqlal street. The staffs are friendly, the rooms are clean, but somehow hot.Though a 4 star hotel, yet can be better.by walking the Istiqlal street is some minutes away, the center of great brands.

rooms are too small but I got excellent service and house keeping,bathrooms are clean with good supplies, very good breakfast buffet, front office was so helpful, hotel location is perfect, exchange rates little bit less than outside, high floors better to get a good view (front rooms only)
