The location of this hotel is horrible. It is located in front of the highway in the middle of nowhere, with nothing around. As traffic is horrible in jakarta, it takes forever to go anywhere from here. Walking distance there is only one basic mall, 10 minutes away, but the way is badly paved and dark at night, and this is not a very safe area after dusk.
The swimming pool area doubles as lounge bar, so it closes at 6 pm. It is just a small pool and a hot spa, enough to relax, but management is so poor that they failed to understand that the only people staying here are those with business in the area, and those people will come back to the hotel normally after 6, a time at which they cannot use the pool because "it may offend guests of the lounge bar". Bear in mind that the lounge bar has virtually no clients, as nobody will bother going to this location and the prices are high.
The hotel is rated and priced as 4-star but it is really a 3.5 star, a little overpriced. The staff is very nice, as is mostly the case in Jakarta.
