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.
