We stayed here for just two nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable. For Jakarta, the rates were good. There is a convenience store across the road. The staff were not overly friendly, but they did their job. There is a restaurant and bar downstairs and you can get a breakfast buffet, which is good value. Would I stay again?... More

this is the sister hotel of Cemara Hotel. The new one is Cemara Hotel and much better but price more expensive. Location about 5 - 10 minutes walk to Sabang Street to find food. For business is ok but for leisure I will not recommend.

For many years, Cemara was a very good centrally located place for journalists, researchers, NGO-workers and others who didn't like to spend their money in luxurious Mandarin or Sari Pan Pacific but needed middle-class standards, friendly service and good communications. I stayed for long periods. It's IT wasn't upgraded, however, so many of us had to go elsewhere. Recently I... More

I stayed here for business meeting for 3 days. The lobby looked fine and quite artsy but when you go up to your room, it will look rather like villa than a hotel, in a bad way. The ceiling is so short and the air feels stifled along the corridor. Also, this hotel has two lift for reaching different scale... More

A very decent hotel that is tucked away from Jakarta's street noise. The surroundings with trees makes it looks even better. Rooms are decent and cosy enough that makes the stay pleasurable. Breakfast spread were rather limited

nice room for its price. clean and friendly staff. unfortunately i dont find fire escape in the 5th floor, a little bit scary in emergency case though. The internet connection was extremely slow, hardly open my email. if you need a good internet connection in your room, this hotel is not for you.

This very nice hotel. You can reach this hotel from Gambir central station on foot or by taxi. Grand cemara also had a great cityscape view. You can enjoy cityscape from swimming pool in rooftop. Hotel staff very helpfull and kindly.

We stayed here on our arrival to Indonesia because it is near to the train station (Gambir), the hotel is nice and the staff were helpful. We found it very noisy as it's right next to a busy junction, this may have just been because we were in the first room and had a window facing the junction. There is... More
