“Impressively designed hotel but leaves me cold with the service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I was impressed as soon as I entered this boutique hotel. There is black BMW motorcycle with sidecar by the door, a Vespa scooter near the elevators, and two strikingly red lounge chairs at the middle landing of the stairs near the lobby. Elegantly modern. However, the reception does not feel welcoming enough. The staff at the reception appear too formal and uncharacteristically smiling less than the Indonesians hotel staff that greeted me in two previous hotels (Jakarta Airport Hotel and Ibis Styles in Yogyakarta).

The impressive design of the lobby extends to the room. I stayed in room 431. The room is amply spacious and nicely laid out. Lighting is splendid with the light fixtures focused on different spots. The floor to ceiling glass wall by the bedside is a very good contrast to the raw cement-finish ceiling and white brick walls surrounding the room. The bathroom needs a little mantenance service, however. The water does not drain quickly enough on the shower floor.

The staff are too formal. Some of the waiters at the lobby restaurant do not smile.

The hotel is in good location, close to where some of the Jakarta highlights are.

The hotel is within easy walking distance of Thamrin.

From my room I could see Monas (which is also easy walking distance away).

I stayed in a studio room. This was a lot bigger than a standard hotel room. Whilst I didn't use the kitchen facilities I was glad to have the option.

The only downside is that during early prayers at the nearby Mosque I was awoken. Not exactly a big problem.

The free internet and breakfast were also welcome.

The sixth floor pool is worth spending an hour or two at.

Room Tip: High room on the opposite side of the building from the mosque.

The room design is one of the why i choose this place to have stay in during this period. It was also quite and very private, but still in the middle of city center so it's still easily to go around.

The room is quite big and have a pantry and also basic needs for your needs such as iron & microwave, stove,etc. The bathroom is quite small compare to the room, i love the couch and and big wide full wall window.

The breakfast is nothing special, not many patron during very early morning.
If you are looking for a simple but complete hotel room in the middle of city with nice cozy design, this might be your one.

One night is not enough to stay at Morrissey. The interior is really homey with kitchen utensils and really possible to cook. It's not more like a hotel, but a home with its urban room decor. I was so impressed once i entered the room. Not finish yet painted ceiling and not cemented white wall make you feel like staying at the budget apartment in New York.

The location of its hotel is so strategic, in the central of city. You can walk distance to find restaurants, convenience stores, street foods and even the bars. Close to "Monas Park", Plaza Indonesia, Hotel Indonesia Roundabouts, Gambir Station and Trans Jakarta lane.

The MORRISSEY is situated at a very convenient location, just walking distance to several restaurants, shopping malls and the national monument. Plaza Indonesia is approximately 30 minutes by feet.

We enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which offers a good variety of food. Try the restaurant "Ocha & Bella" connected to the hotel and you will fall in love with their dishes immediately.

The staff was very friendly and helped us in every situation.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor room and try to grab one, which is not located at the roadside.

I stayed here for 3 nights after pouncing upon the place randomly on tripadvisor, Everything about this hotel was true to the photos you see. The room was indeed spacious and tuly reminded me of a typical American style loft.

The kitchenette was amazing as even pots & pans also, cutleries were provided in the room. I love the amazing large windows that gave a serene morning view & the white brick walls was spot on!

The pool was my favourite hangout, spent most the time there as it was really tranquil & soothing area for your evening chillouts with a glass of wine.
This place was near to Pasar Senen (ultimate place for 2nd hand clothings) & also, the city center Grand Indonesia.

The staffs always had a smile on and really genuinely sincere in accomodating guest's needs. I like how they will ask you to write a lil review through the Ipad after your checkout.

Because you guys are too amazing, I just booked a 5 day stay this coming April '13. Cant wait to see you guys again!! Cheers!
