Rooms were basic, staff only sometimes helpful. The room needed to be cleaned.

I stayed at this hotels a few times over the last 5 years for business trips. Overall, it is a decent hotel. Location is good, about 10 minutes of walking from Jaksa Street, where you can find cheap foods, internet cafe, travel agencies, and a super market; about 5 minutes of taxi from Sarinah Mall and the Gambir Train Station....

I have stayed in Grand Cemara several times in the past and even if I am frequently persuaded by my local partners to stay in some posh hotel (like Aryadutta or Borobudur), I always prefer to go to Grand Cemara. The rooms (in the old wing) definitely need some refurbishment, you can smell the cigarettes there, the internet connection is... More

This hotel is apparently round the corner from the backpacking district. It is a very quiet, nicely decorated hotel, with nice beds and a good shower, and excellent service of the friendly staff. I would definitely go here again if I went to Jakarta again.

We had to choose this hotel as the hotel we normally stay in is full during our visit to Jakarta. It is in the same area but the quality of our stay compared to our regular hotel was the complete opposite. It took us by surprise because we thought it would be a good hotel since it looked nice and... More

The location of the hotel is quite convenient; you can walk to the city center and shopping malls. Opposite is a 24-hout-convenience shop and restaurants are all around. The standard rooms are small and run-downed. The amenities are very limited, shampoo and shower gel are not replaced every day. There is only one closet and one chair, no space to... More

Stayed many many times in Cemara. Oh, sorry, Grand Cemara now... Always smiling and friendly service. Room service is fast. Unbeatable housekeeping service - better than many 5-star hotels. Excellent value for money. Especially after they have upgraded the aircons. Wireless internet is pricey though...

Overall, Cemara is a reasonable hotel. However a couple of things to be aware of. Every room is a smoking room, complete with cigarettes in the mini-bar. Also, every possible extra in the hotel is expensive - for example internet access (slow to medium wireless) is expensive, US$8 for a day - ending at 2pm regardless of whether you bought... More

Fine hotel, with an excellent location in the heart of Jakarta. Average but clean rooms, friendly staff, and a small swimmingpool on the top floor. All in all good quality for your money.
