“Best budget hotel for travellers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

stay in this hotel for 3 days with friends, location is pretty good, bit a way from big street, so you'll get nice sleep but close to main shopping area.
rooms ok, bathroom - something NEW!!!
bed comfortable, lcd tv - that's something new for budget hotel in indonesia, also get media player with full loaded movies, wifi - fast, very fast and free.
They give us free snacks & coffee / tea, everyday.

Room Tip: for non smoking travelers, as for non smoking room. also room rate is cheaper during weekdays.

I am staying at Magnolia for two nights with my wife, the hotel is located at the center of Jakarta, nearby many attractions. The room is beautiful, clean and I really enjoy the movies collections they had. the wifi is fast and the rain shower is good, the bed is very comfortable, they used simmons bed. The staff is very friendly by giving us a hand with taxi and they help us by printing our airline tickets. It is recommended for all. We will coming back for sure.

If you're looking for à shabby, smelly place with roaches in your room: this is the place to be! The location is bad, not safe to go out ar night, not a nice neighbourhood!
The place around the hotel is full with rats and roaches. It's noisy, smells awful and the carpet looks disgusting. The staff is very friendly, can't say nothing about that. The shower is Nice. We were thinking they Also rent the rooms per hour.....

I have stayed there on 14 jan 2013 and i have to say that i really like the interior of the room and the facilities provided in the room. Big fridge, good wifi, Nice LCD TV with built in house movies and very comfortable simmons bed. What can i ask for more with the price i paid. They even have extension cords for me to charge my iPad and iPhone simultaneously. First time i experienced that the bathroom without doors and with just a curtain for my superior room.The staffs were very helpful and even on the last day, one of the staff get a taxi with his bike from outside. Actually its not that far from the main road and only 5 mins walk and its also near to Lokasari mall. Overall i'm really satisfied with the room, staff performance and the facilities except that there is no lift. So its not ideal for older people.

First hotel that I checked in with a "doorless" bathroom concept. To make thing more erotic, the walls are fully made of glass! The room is nice but we had problem with the aircond (and yes, the toilet). My friend even asked for an extra sheet to cover the bathroom (I wonder why? hehehe). There is a window, overlooking to an unfinished balcony but you can't open it. The location is quite far from the main road with no major attraction nearby. The FO is friendly and even let me use the printer to print out my boarding pass for free.
