“Good centrally located hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Good, centrally located hotel/serviced apartment. Not the quietest hotel I have ever stayed in (two floor-to-ceiling windows facing a big mosque didn't help -- double-glazing would have), but comfortable, well thought out living space. Reasonable work area and reasonable internet connection. The lobby area -- where breakfast is served -- is small (when the hotel is full it can be a scrum to grab a table. Outside on the terrace is a man making bespoke omelets and waffles -- much better than the slightly tired food at the buffet. Fruits juices, in particular, were poor. The fresh fruit was not quite ripe. The usual Asian/Indonesian breakfast foods weren't really up to it. The Italian-ish (what Italian restaurant would have hamburgers on the menu? They were good, however) restaurant attached to the hotel is excellent. Clearly it's a meeting point for Jakarta's yuppies. The night I ate there several parties -- including a fun/fancy-dress/slightly raucous hen's night/engagement party -- were in full swing. Nevertheless the service was good and the food fine. Also good is the pale green fronted Indonesian restaurant across the street and 100 meters to the right. To get there you have to walk the gauntlet of street food vendors at night. Smelled great, but I lacked the courage to try any of it.

Excellent bed. Sleep quality would have been higher but for the very early morning call for prayers. There are 2 or 3 mosques near the hotel. The call to prayer at one was so melodious that it could seduce even a non-believer. Unfortunately the call to prayer at the other mosque was of the badly distorted, overly amplified sergeant-major type.

The staff were friendly but not very well-informed.

Tip: lower the black-out shade when you leave the room for the day. Otherwise the room will be baking when you return.

Would I stay again? Yes.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the mosque. Or earplugs.

I stayed for a night, check-in was again...swift and courteous. Room was still great, booked a smoking room on the 4th floor. Found a very nice touch in a form of a fruit-choco christmas cookie, taste good too :) Breakfast was awesome! Mozarella tomatoes and spinach picatta..who would thought? I had two of each..LoL. Taxi are always easy to find.. Hopefully Morrissey can maintain their high quality, looking forward to return. A slight minus point, internet at the business centre is waaaaay too expensive... minimum one hour too! It's not that fast :( I won't mind paying that amount for a blazing fast connection.

Room Tip: I got room 428, faces the west...nice sunset light and quiet too..

Overall a great hotel. Something you need in a rather horrible city like Jakarta. great value for money (80 USD/night)

Room: according to latest standard. good pillow selection, spacey room. insulation of the door could be a bit better. Window to outside could be slightly larger as well, but nonetheless it's a great room. Only flaw, the toilet door is not soundproof at all, so you don't want to take a dump while someone is in the room.

food: buffet was fairly good. good selection and good quality. the Italian restaurant inside the hotel is excellent, worth the money.

pool: nice pool, could be a bit longer for swimming, but the marvelous view makes up for it.

gym: a bit too minimalistic. A couple of additional machines, weight would help.

Overall it's an excellent hotel.
Just make sure you don't stay too long. Jakarta is an awful city and there is barely anything to see as a tourist, nor to do. Except you like wandering around in malls.

Room Tip: the street view rooms are probably noisier, so try to avoid them.

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.
