We arrived in Jakarta and had a booking mishap with a Bakcpacker Hostel thus we needed a place to stay in to rest until the next day- thus Hotel Mega Cikini. We entered the hotel thorugh their restaurant thickly clouded with cigar smoke from drunk group of old men. We needed to cover our nose until we reached the lobby.
We booked only for one night, and it was worth our supposedly 3-day stay with a nearby hostel. Expensive but we though it is appropriate since it was a full-pledge hotel. We went up to our room, had our hot showers and fell sleep...only to wake up sweating because our AC was not working. We called reception for help and they sent a repair man who could not speak a word of English making our bad day in Jakarta worse as it is.
The only thing I liked about the hotel is their breakfast buffet. That's it. It's a hotel that would worked for the 80s but not today, especially if eveything (furniture, amenities, et al) were the same since the 80s- dust, mites and all.
