I stayed at the CP for 5 nights. Check in was effecient and I was upgraded to a king suite with lounge privilages on the 19th floor due to priority club status.
First the room - the one I stayed in was very nice. It did have the old wall paper and old style furniture, but other than that it was great. NIce bathroom, great bed, etc.
I ate at both the 19th floor and the 2nd floor buffet for breakfast. Prefer the 2nd floor as it has more variety. The 2nd floor Beranda is spacious and even through there were a lot of people a couple of mornings it was never crowded. The lobby area bar is very nice and relaxing. There is also a dance club on the first floor which was interesting but empty the one time I stopped in.
Staff we very friendly although as most everyone has mentioned in the reviews, service can be hit or miss and sometimes slow.
My room was on the 18th floor facing the back of the hotel and the mosque and traffic noise was not a problem. Note sure what happened to the tennnis court back there but it looks like the area has been taking over by the locals.
From the pictures on the web site i was looking forward to the gym area. It was disappointing as the gym is relatively small, crowded with equipment and not a lot of room to use it, TVs are blaring, and the aerobics classes are in an open area so there is a lot of noise - even through earbuds. The men's locker room is small, cramped, not enough benches, and looks warn out. I changed the first time I was at the gym, but that was it.
My biggest complaint is the internet. At least on the 18th floor is was very hit or miss, and sometimes non-existent altogether. The room had a direct hardwire but it was not turned on. The lobby was the same way especially in peak usage times. This issue alone would keep me from returning to the hotel as I had a lot of work I had to get done.
Overall, although I stay loyal to the priority club brands whenever possible, I will stay somewhere else next time I am in Jakarta.
