I've had the opportunity to stay at the Gran Melia Jakarta, as my choice hotels were fully booked.
As a five star hotel, it's property represents great value for money with breakfast and free high speed internet included in the room rate. Amenities were as expected for a business traveller in a five star hotel, but I found fittings a bit tired (the shower tap handle fell off as I was turning it!). Rooms are of a nice size and clean. Staff were attentive, big smiles, greeting you at virtually every corner and ever willing to help. The breakfast selection was good - fruit and juice bar, continental style breakfast, sushi bar and local cuisines.
If I have to fault the hotel at all, it would be that if the bill in your stay did not hit a minimum of 2,000,000 IDR, you can't claim points on the MeliaRewards. In fact, they wouldn't even bother taking details or imprint of your membership card. It's just worthless to them. The check-in person did not bother to explain this to me - he just said he would check with the manager, but never came back to me. The other thing worth mentioning is the ambient temperature, at around 25 degrees Celcius in the hotel is a bit warm for my taste.
Location - access to the motorway is exceptional !
