Stayed in the Sparks hotel for 4 nights on my first trip to Jakarta. My room was really nice, had a view over Jalan Mangga Besar. I was not disturbed at all from the hotel bar on the ground floor At night the bar has bands and dancers. The restuarant was good, enjoyed some Indonesian dishes. Alcohol is quite expensive....
