“Surprisingly Good Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

I chose this hotel based on the reviews in Trip Advisor. When I noticed that the lowest room category was only 29 sqm, I was a bit underestimating the hotel. Turned out that I was wrong. This hotel brilliantly managed to make the 29-sqm-room looks spacious. The amenities provided were also similiar with 5 stars hotel. The most memorable experience here was the great hospitality from the staffs. The icon from this hotel is its rooftop pool, it is a small pool and not too deep, you can enjoy city view from there. The best time to go to the pool is at 4.30-5 pm so you can experience the sunset beauty. The gym is quite small with only 2 equipments but is enough if all you want to do is a light treadmill exercise. I did not try their laundry room on the 3rd floor though but it seemed convenient. They provide detergent too on the laundry room. The buffet breakfast was average, just normal buffet for small hotel like this. Anyhow, you can find various food & beverages on the neighbourhood. The money changer is just opposite of the hotel. It has good exchange rates too. The nearest shopping mall is Grand Indonesia & Plaza Indonesia. If you went there by taxi, it will cost you Rp 12.000-Rp 15.000 only, however during traffic time the cost could increase becomes Rp 25.000-Rp 30.000. I will definitely come back to this hotel, probably will try their 1 bedroom Deluxe room next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the street instead of a room facing the housing area because the praying sound...

Stayed here with my wife for a week and pretty much satisfied with what we got. The main reason we chose this serviced apartment is for its in-room facility. It got decent kitchen with all the utensils, plate, pans. It got free internet and the bed was pretty big. Only the bathroom is a little bit small, but it's clean; and that's the most important.

It also has washing machine and dryer for guests to use in 3rd floor. The best part, it's free. So if you stay long here, you don't need to worry to pay expensive laundry. Paid laundry is available too, but we didn't use it.

Location wise, it's at the heart of Jakarta, with access to central business district and malls around. There are also plenty restaurants and food stalls within walking distance.

Room Tip: If you're non-smoker, ask for room other than 4th floor where smoking is allowed.

I stayed 4 times in this hotel. I like the styling and the location. Its kinda new and fresh. The room has a good seize, only the shower is very small.

But the main reason was the value for money. They offered a 45% discount for early bookings. The hotel asks more than € 100 a night at the moment. Thats way too much, specially if the nearby mosque wakes u up every day. It sometimes feels like the are praying inside your room, specially the rooms view on jalan Jaksa.

I would book the hotel again if the price is € 70 or lower. For the current prices you can book much better hotels.

It was the first time we stayed in Morrissey Serviced Apartment, and I might stay there again if I come to Jakarta. The lobby is relatively small for 4 star hotel in Jakarta. I didn't mind though, since I did not use it often. The room is clean and cozy. They provide a mini kitchen with surprisingly complete utensils. They came out very useful for us, since we have a toddler with us so we have to dine in room several times. The self-service laundry was also helpful. The breakfast is average for me. A bit disappointing for a 4 star class hotel. More like 3 star rather than 4 for me. The only downside for us was the praying call from nearby mosque. The room is not sound-proof, so we were waken out by the praying call for Sholat Subuh before 5 am every morning. Overall it was very good. It's worthy if you book using early-bird promotion. But for the publish rate, you can have better hotel with the same rate in Jakarta.

Stay over the weekend. As a local, i am interested to try to stay here because it is fairly new hotel and located in the prime area of the city. Prime in a sense of bery central.

Stayed at the studio room non smoking, located on the 3rd floow. Love the room. Modern and minimalist design, quite well concepted. it has kitchenette (stove, microwae, toaster, jug), cuttleries are provided in the room, medium aize refrigerator, there is also an iron board provided. Bathroom is good no issue at all. However, the room is quite dusty (thin dust on table, bedside table, light cap, etc).Either they dont have too much visitor thus the room didnt get cleaned everyday or simply it is just a dusty area.swimming pool is kinda small/medium size. There is a smallgym with set of dumbles, one treadmill, one crosstrainer, 5yoga mat provided as well as small towels. All availabe in the small clear glass window room bythe pool.

breakfast menunis good and it is actually tasted GOOD. Not the kind of the budgeted hotel food.
There is also an italian restaurant on the ground level. Quite hype restaurant at the moment. Went there, pasta was nice, wine and service was below average.

The only thing which upset me was that on the check out day it was an hour before check out time, the front desk rang to remind u that check out time soon. I have travelled a lot and stay at more than 3 dozens of hotels, this was the only time i got a reminder that i must readily for check out. Somehow i found this quite disturbing instead of their chance to have me extendin my stay.

Stayed here again recently for 2 nights.
The hotel now is building its name and hence, it is always fully booked during weekends especially on Friday onwards.
It feels like going back to my own room in Morrissey. Everything in the room functioning well. The only thing that caught my attention was the cushion on the sofa..it already shown a sign of wear and tear. The rest are just nice.
Appreciate the new opening hours of the Residents Lounge which was extended to 12 on Sunday. It was nice sitting on the lounge chair, with Jakarta city on the view. But when I was there, there was a group of young crowd who make noise and it really annoying.
Otherwise, it is ok.
will definitely return back to Morrissey.
