Good service, easy check-in, although I have some issue with my Credit Card in the my second stay.
Please give more services, like basic amenities, since there is a lot of hotel that offer more services on same average rate basis of yours near your location.

Had a pleasant stay. Hotel was close to the train station and major attractions, especially the planetarium which was within 5 mins walking distance. Always a taxi near by and the 24hr convenient store in the lobby was a bonus. Several cafes also on the lower floor. Disappointed the pool was not included in the room charge, should not have advertised it as it is not a apart of the hotel. Overall a good stay even though the walls were very thin so you could hear people in the hallway. Rooms were very clean and decent, no problems with the AC and the TV even had a few English channels. Lobby staff were very friendly and extra helpful. 24 hr security at the lobby and front of hotel was a extra bonus.

Firstly, if you're visiting Jakarta for the first time, do your research! Hehe. I emailed the hotel and asked the staff roughly how much the taxi fare will cost and they said about 20-25krp. But of course, at the Gambir Train Station, we couldn't find the BlueBird Taxi stand so was cheated by a very expressive taxi driver who insisted that it costs 50krp because 'I pay for everything!" Haha.

Anyway, this hotel is located in Cikini, where you will find many other hotels. There is the sister hotel in Menteng which we were supposed to be staying in but ended up here because of the taxi driver.

Room is nice and most importantly CLEAN. Toilet is compact but clean. There is a convenience store on the same floor as the reception which is great for a late night snack or topping up your supply of mineral water. A public swimming pool is available on the ground floor should you feel like having some exercise. Rate is without breakfast but the cafe is available, but only opens at 7 and we were up and raring to go by half five each morning! - so never had the chance to see what it's like

Staff extremely helpful.

Downstairs there is the Ooh La La Bistro and Black Canyon Coffee.

But, again, room is basic, apart from the 2 complimentary bottles of mineral water, there isn't much else. They do have a nice tv with decent channels (depending on the reception) and the bed is comfy.

Perfect for light travellers or couples.
