“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.

The date February 16, 2013 and we are booking to stay at the Hotel Morrissey in the context of my honeymoon, because we (my wife and i) on a motorbike. So we are not allowed to park inside the grounds there is no motorcycle parking. We are asked to park in the parking lot located behind the motor without being told exact location of the motor park.

We ended up parking in a place that we see the motorcycle parking. And the weather began to rain, after we parked the bike, it turns out we were told to move us to another bike by hotel security. Once again they just pointed place only. Finally we move again our motor to the designated place by the security, and the rain starting down . We asked if there was an umbrella that we can use to get to the loby. They just said we dont have it, without any action to look for an umbrella.

Just a little bit surprised, Morrissey premises had no umbrellas for guests who wish to stay there. Finally the rain became more heavily my wife and ran towards lobbying, when we arrived at lobby, I saw they have umbrellas, why hotel security had said there no umbrella when we ask? And it turns out there? Or maybe because we are just riding a motorcycle that is not served as they were driving a car?

but after all,the room is so nice n and cozy, the rooftop pool is great, so our disappointed were disappear

that was our experience, may be considered by the management of the Hotel Morrissey guests who will be staying at his hotel that uses motorcycles.
