Old hotel but comfortable enough to rest.... the staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and big. The hotel was under renovation at 5th floor, and there has been a lot of changes at the hotel.

This was booked via travel agent for a one night layover after a surf trip. An impressive facade but inside it is very tired and dated. Rooms are acceptable but nothing special. Breakfast was included in the price but limited. Next time I'll stay at the transit hotel at the airport!

This hotel is now known at the de Rivier. Built by the Dutch, it is still back in pre-war times, despite claims to the contrary. Charming staff meet and greet, obviously wanting the place to work. However, there are leaks everywhere resulting in smelling carpet and a general air of discomfort. The spacious, fabulous rooms would have been wonderful once,... More

The only interesting thing is the traditional colonial style and near to Kota Tua (which you can reach by walking), also Kota Train Station, and fast check in. Other things, all poor. Tasteless breakfast, old furniture, and interior. Nothing I can say. totally not worth it to stay here.

We spent 3 days in a sadly run down yet beautiful hotel. The room badly needed to be updated as the furnishings and bathrooms were delapitated however the king size bed was comfortable. The charm of this hotel is its closeness to the historical centre of Kota Jakarta which contains some interesting attractions such as the Wayang Puppet museum in... More
