Super friendly staffs who are willing to serve. Strategic location in my opinion. Variety of choices for breakfast. Tons of food stalls outside the hotel. Room were clean. Didn't try the spa/club though. Noisy at night due to the noise from the club at 8th floor. Weak wifi signal, need to renew every 24hrs. There's a pool table at the... More

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....
