Pros: large rooms, convenient location near Plaza Semangi, friendly and competent staff, large pool & fitness center
Cons: older hotel
I'd recommend friends to stay here and stay again as well, both for business or pleasure
Location: the hotel is near Plaza Semangi, right of the highway. The mall is a 5min walk away. It's close to JL Jenderal Sudirman with access to Merdaka Square, Plaza Indonesia, etc, by taxi or busway. There are always taxis (blue/silver bird) in front of the hotel, no issues. Be aware that the roads force the taxis to make a lengthy u-turn when going to the airport or other places in that direction, it's not a scam...
Room: I was upgraded as a IHG Platinum member to a very nice, large room. While the hotel is older, the room was in very good condition, clean and well maintained. There was no noticeable downside to the hotel being older.
I was nervous because of some of the reviews here pointing out the rooms needing renovation - there seem to be different categories in different condition. My room was fine.
The only odd thing (for IHG fans) was that the hotel didn't follow the Crowne Plaza brand standards - no sleep advantage package, no dual shower curtains, etc.. first time I've seen that in a while...
Service: Frond desk was friendly and efficient at check-in and check-out. Housekeeping was thorough. Staff in public areas, pool and gym was friendly and helpful.
Facilities: Nice lobby, large pool and large fitness center with external members. This is more a regular gym than a hotel gym. It also has a jacuzzi and sauna (not working during my stay).
I didn't eat at their restaurants during my stay.
A nice touch was the scent in the hallway to my room - burners were located near elevator.
Value: I stayed using IHG points. I'd consider the price of USD85 at time of booking as good value.
