As previous reviews have noted, the hotel is somewhat dated, but what it lacks in “newness” is more than compensated by the quality, helpfulness, and friendliness of its staff. Each of my requests was promptly addressed to my complete satisfaction. The buffet breakfast and dinner have a wide choice of good options, which is good because there are few desirable... More

This is one of the oldest hotel in Jakarta. Pretty expensive for the rooms and maintenance. They still maintain the old school design in room and old school tv. But the good part is, its centrally located. you got 2 shopping malls opposite to the hotel and Anamoli coffee is very close by. The central business district isnt that far... More

Hotel Ambhara is in the 'embassy' area of Jakarta and so there are plenty of trees around to soften the views. The hotel itself is probably about 40 years old and although it is dated in its appearance it is very clean, neat and tidy with a large humber of helpful staff all going about their work in a sound...

If you are here for business, then this hotel is fine. Otherwise, it is too crowded from morning until night. So no one bothers when you arrive and the lobby is quite a mess. Even the security scanning machine has no one manning and everyone walks around it so it is just for show. But the rooms are of the... More

My friends and I chose this hotel because of its proximity to a Mosque. It is situated near a quiet area in Jakarta. There is a mall nearby – Pasaraya Mall – but the area is dead during the night. It was quite hard to find a convenience store nearby and most shops were closed after 10PM. Service was pleasant... More

Stayed here for three days and the hotel is adeqate for my needs. The rooms are cozy with no view and one of the problems I had was fix immediately. The staff was knoweledgeable and very helpfully. Another problem dealt with was the free breakfast. The website I book with said free breakfast and I was also told when I... More

Situated in the south Jakarta, one of the pioneer hotel in town, staff is friendly, room & bath is nice, but not so spacious for my standard room. Food is good, and the ambience suitable for business meeting. Would suggest this hotel for anyone travelling to south Jakarta for sure.

I had regularly frequented the Ambhara hotel in 2009, mainly because of the central location. The past 2 months I have spent several nights there, and noticed that the rooms, corridors, lobby and main restaurant have not changed at all even though at least rooms and the somewhat dark corridors would require renovation since that time. One important improvement achieved... More

The hotel looked old but the room is pretty clean. However, the bathtub has definitely seen better days. The bed is a bit too soft for my liking and the huge CRT TV and its cabinet made the room looking outdated. The staff is able to speak English though some not as good but you won't have much problem talking... More

Actually I have been staying in this hotel a few times before (since 2007),and if meetings are taking place in Jakarta-Pilogadung, I always try to get a room here (not always available). Check-in easy, rooms big enough, a bit cramped, though; bath room sufficiently equipped. Decent breakfast provided in the coffee house (which also has wire less internet access, plus,... More
