The hotel was a pretty great find for the location and the price. We were pretty shocked how large and fancy it was for the price but also stayed in off season with nearly no one there. The room was just OK but definitely good enough and large enough with working TV, air and hot water. The staff was super... More

During our stay in this hotel I enjoyed three things in particular. First, the swimming pool. It isn't some fancy pool that is particularly nice, however, it does what it needs to do which is to provide some cooling down and relaxing. Secondly, I very much enjoyed the breakfast, which is elaborate and great to start the day. Lastly, I... More

Just a one night stay in this hotel. I arrived early, and the staff were nice enough to check me in. However, they then told me that the pool area was closed because of a wedding. I was a little disappointed, as I had chosen this hotel BECAUSE of the pool. When I asked to speak with the Manager I... More

We are 20 people doing a round trip. This hotel is clean and has spacious hotel rooms. It needs at some places some tender loving care. The pool is clean and lovely after a sweaty day in town. Located nearby the old harbor next to a very smelly river. Breakfast is toast, eggs, fruit, coffee, tea and some juice from... More

love it! value for your money, but really up to the standard. i got a superior room, but it is wide and we love it. too bad we don't have the time to try the pool that look very inviting. great location. right next to landmarks so you can just walk around.

VERY friendly staff - not sure if I was in a bad area or if I just didn't what to expect out of Jakarta, but didn't really feel comfortable walking outside at night. Other than that, superb service, free WiFi and very big, comfortable rooms. Good price, too. I'd highly recommend de Rivier Hotel.
