“A pleasant stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights recently, during a visit to Jakarta.
This hotel was recommended by a local friend, so that we can spend some time in the interconnecting mall in case we got bored. No doubt, the mall is huge and kept us occupied for a quite a while. It is also very crowded during weekend.

The room is decent and clean.
The bathroom is small; only 1 set of toothbrush is provided, some of the common amenities like comb, shaver, cotton pads are missing...However, the hotel sticks a note on the mirror indicating that extras can be provided with a fee.
Bedding is fine, a seating area would be nice as there certainly is space in the room for a pair of armchairs or sofa. Perhaps this would be available in a different room type.
I like the cute orange flip-flops that the hotel provides, which is different from the normal bedroom slippers given by other hotels.

Breakfast is good, with a wide variety of choices, from western to local to chinese and japanese.
There is a special counter offering herbal tea by a friendly lady. You can try it if you are health-conscious or have 'adventurous' taste buds. The taste of the herbal drinks can be overwhelming.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay but nothing extraordinary.

Have had the privilege of staying at the KG Harris now several times...is a fabulous combination of hospitality & simple comforts while away from home....the concept of Harris I feel is very well thought out, albeit simple. the color scheme sets the brand apart from imitators. Rara & Nur deserve a mention...they both seem to master the coffee machine...something I rate important, Jean Pierre the GM is an approachable person & from what can observe is well liked & This reflects in staff attitude....look forward to my next visit

I believe this is the only hotel in Jakarta that provides aromatherapy burner in their corridor and in your room.

We come in Sunday afternoon, and my son was directly attracted with the pop corn machine located in the lobby near the internet corner. We just share some money for donation and can grab a bunch of pop corn for your children while waiting for check in procedures. I love this children treatment, because waiting for long check in procedures really make them bored.

Our room is in the non smoking floor, and when the elevator's door opened, i saw aromatherapy burner was put on the floor, and i thought how nice it is.

When i entered the room, i found the aromatherapy burner in working desk, and i really love the smell.

There was no bathtub in the room, but my son really enjoy swimming in the pool.

I was searching for the kids club as i read the sign in the elevator, but was informed that the kids club already closed almost a year.

I love the bench in the room, could be used as a free extra beds.

The parking lot in the basement was terrible, we could not get it, because they join with mall's parking lot, but when we came back from outside, we get one in front of the lobby.

The hotel is in Mall Kelapa Gading, so it is really in a very convenient location.

This is my second stay at Harris Hotel - Kelapa Gading for this year. I love the minimalist theme of the rooms and the cheerful faces of their front desk staff. Checking-in was smooth, although I was early they had the room ready in an hour. While waiting I headed to the adjoining mall for lunch. The security in this hotel was good as you will need a room key card to activate the lift to access your floor.
Breakfast at the hotel never fail to impress me with their variety (Western, Indonesian and Japanese ), quantity and quality and attentive service at Rp. 90000 nett per person its good value.
The adjourning malls kept me fully occupied for the day shopping, pampering myself at the salon and enjoying meals at the numerous restaurants and foodcourt.
If you just want a quick getaway holiday and want to make use of your time to the fullest, this is certainly the best hotel to stay in Jakarta you have everything at your door-step, to avoid loss time in the heavy Jakarta traffic.

Very nice hotel in the center of the upscale Gendong district. Great room, good internet and next door (interconnected) to a huge upscale 5 story shopping mall with upscale stores and every kind of food you would want. Hotel has a large (diverse) buffet breakfast for 9000 IDR (very reasonable for an upscale hotel).

Orange is the main color of this hotel. Niice, clean and large rooms and bathrooms. Near by Kelapa gading shopping mall. You can go shopping or get lunch/dinner at big the food court (5th floor). The pity of it is that there no WIFI in the rooms but only a wired connection. At the first floor you can get the WIFI connection.

Room Tip: We 've got 2 rooms with connecting door. The rooms are at 9th floor.

From the website, it may all look like a concept hotel with budget in mind. That was what I had in mind when I made the reservation online.

However, it was way above my expectation when I checked in to the hotel. The lobby, cafe, restaurant, lift, hallway, room and its toilet all compliment each other very well. The Orange design is really unique.

I got myself a basic, king-bed room. The room is consider large with LCD TV, leather sofa, amazing bed and 4 pillows. Also, compliment reliable and fast Internet connection via in-room LAN. The room's toilet's ware are fitted with Toto.

For my first morning of my stay, I went for hotel buffet breakast @90,000. The breakfast was consider average and had quite a variety of food such as Indonesian, Western (bread, sausage, yoghurt, potato), small section for Dim-sum and Japanese food. I wouldn't advice if you are usual patrons to dine here. It may get boring. However, I would suggest the food courts at the Mall for better selection, tastier and yet at reasonable price.

As many in this review suggested, the Hotel is indeed located just right next door to a popular Mall at this vicinity. Mall Kelapa Gading. You could find many retailers offering from basic to designer products. They have huge selection of food!

The hotel is situated quite far away from City Central. I would not recommend anyone to stay here if they intend to travel to City Central, because due to the terrible yet normal traffic condition. I was staying here as my business meeting location was just nearby.

Overall, this is my first time visiting Jakarta and I definitely enjoy my stay with Harris @Kelapa Gading. Its amazing design features and friendly, cheerful staffs.
