I have just spent three weeks staying at this hotel! It is a new, modern, clean hotel located adjacent to one of the major toll roads in southern Jakarta (this is a major plus when you seen the traffic on the roads!!). I had one of the slightly larger corner rooms which gave me plenty of space to spread myself out for the period of my stay. The room was very nicey furnished and a very pleasant sanctuary while way from home. The staff were absolutely excellent - very friendly, very helpful, and with a significantly greater command of English than my paltry attempts at Indonesian!! The food in the restaurant was very good - whether it be from the buffet, or from the a la carte menu. There was always something there that to tempt diners. I particularly liked some of the different buffet themes - pasta, seafood, Japanese etc - that the chefs would cook to order in front of you on the stoves behind the servery. Very fresh, very hot, very tasty.
Within a few minutes walk are several local shopping alternatives, including restaurants, supermarkets, specialty stores etc. These are well worth the walk to sample some of the local lifestyle and gather an additional cultural perspective.
I have stayed in several hotels in South Jakarta but will return to the Mercure, by choice, again in ealrly 2013
One of the corner rooms away from the street front - the corner rooms are bigger and the back corner...
