“Not worth 5 stars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

The lobby decoration is awful. The red marble tile doesnt match at all with the blue carpet of reception desk. And the reception desk is under treated and lots of scratches on it (looks really old fashioned). The breakfast room is very kitsch and even though it offers a lot of food variant, they apparently focuses on quantity than quality. Milk and soy milk are too sweet. their orange juice is only nutri sari syrup.. not a fresh orange juice. the coffee container is the one taken directly from the kitchen (not transfered to a customer and children friendly container) which is very dangerous if touches by kids. the menu of their indian resto is all printed with ink (so so 80s) thus fades with water...The shower water smells bad and the bathroom joints are not maintained well. The wc functions really poorly and no extra tissue given.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I was transferred to this hotel because their sister hotel was hotel. Don't know the location bad or good because my purpose of the trip was business and not personal/tourist.

Room was spacious, comfortable and clean. Corporate rate with daily laundry was a good deal though their buffet breakfast was not comparable. Dinner buffet closed early and food was so-so and I preferred the a la carte menu.

Pros:
1- we took the family suit, beds were big and comfy.
2- clean.
3- price was ok.

Cons:
1- location is really bad and u got nothing there.we were at Ancol and when it was raining all the taxis refused to transport us back due to "Banjeer' floods! We had to stay in a hotel there.
2- buffet was small and not much varieties. But it wasn't that bad.
3- I took a shower and went to sleep and after 3 or 4 hours the shower door shattered while we were asleep and it scared the hell out of my kids.... Thank god it happened while we were asleep and nobody was injured.... I will post some pics of that incident. I went down stairs and they immediately changed my room.

My client arranged me this hotel and in overall it's pretty good. The room is spacious and comfortable with all necessary amenities included although it's still not comparable to international 5 star hotel.

Nothing much to complain, it's a nice hotel to stay in especially business travelers

I choosed this hotel for my buyer guest from one travel agent who offer a fantastic price for *5 hotel in Jakarta. But after reach hotel , I think, it should be 4 star hotel. Staffs too busy not friendly, services like *3 hotel, lobby is big but standard, room size is big but also standard.

I was staying in this hotel for many times. and the last, I get cover charge IDR 500.000 for take a picture in my room. It's non make sense if we must pay that amount because we take a picture. They said that I'm used a property of hotel and must be told them to get permit.
