“Great place to stay in South Jakarta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

A great place to stay in south Jakarta, Nice big pool, my kids loved spending their time in the pool. We stayed in a 2 bedrooms apartment and we love it. The place was very clean and looked after. A big 19lt water bottle with hot and cold dispenser in the room was a excellent. A nice big fridge, an electric stove and a microwave in the room also for a quick meal. Staffs were very friendly and plenty of smiles. The food was quite good too although the service was a bit slow. We stayed on 8th floor with good view but the hallway smells of cigarette smoke.
A nice supermarket 2 minutes walk from the hotel with plenty to offer. We could use a big fruit bowl in the room as we bought a lot of tropical fruit from the supermarket. We will come back to hotel Kristal next time we go to Jakarta.

Room Tip: If you are not a smoker, ask a non smoking floor (which is only 1 floor per tower, lower floor).

This was my second time staying at Hotel Kristal.

Overall, the hotel hasn't changed much from my last visit in November 2010. The hotel is located at the southern part (selatan) of Jakarta. Hotel staff speak English well.

I stayed in the one bed-room suite. The room is spacious, and is equipped with a 5-gallon handle water bottle, so one does not to worry about the risk of running out of water. The interior is somewhat rundown, but still acceptable.

My room rate included wifi internet connection. Nevertheless, the connection speed did not give me a smooth connection to watch videos on Youtube or making Skype calls. The wifi connection in Cafe Pinang is better.

Speaking of the hotel's restaurants and pubs, Satu Lagi not only wins the applause from guests but also from local people give it thumbs up. The buffet at Cafe Pinang was also not bad. Consideration of widening the food spread is the only recommendation I have for the management.

As set out above, the hotel is located in the southern part of town, and I highly recommend this hotel to you if you are going to spend most of your time in that part of town so you don't need to worry about the traffic. I went to downtown one morning during rush hours, and it took me 1.5 hours to get there.

Generally speaking, I am quite satisfied with the hotel.

Room Tip: If you a light sleeper, please ensure you book yourself in a room which is not close to the Masjid n...

Staff are friendly. Cozy atmosphere, almost like being in a home. Ultra spacious room, provided with kitchen utensils in 3 bedrooms. I also like the fact they provide one gallon of water (instead of 2 bottles of water per day) in each room, so we didn't run out of water.

Room Tip: Facing swimming pool will be quieter.

I stayed in this hotel during my business trip and it was a great experience. I reserved the one bedroom suite but because there are no non-smoking room available, I was upgraded to a 2 bed room suite. It was quite big though for one person as it has 2 bed room - 1 master bedroom & one single room. What I like about the place is that it feels like home when I enter. Even better, it has a whole barrel of mineral water ready for me to drink. I do not have to worry about getting water. Service was great and they have tight security, which is another plus. Breakfast is good, but if you are someone who loves to see something different everyday, you might be disappointed as the food spread is always the same everyday. Room service food (at least for soup buntut which I tried) was good and very reasonably priced. Quiet neighbourhood so you will get quality sleep. 2 minutes walk is the supermarket Hero or diagonally opposite is a 7-11, so you can get your basic nessities there. There are some shops nearby too and there is a bookshop that opens for breakfast too if you want to try something else. In short, I enjoyed my stay there and will request to stay here again for my next business trip whenever possible.

I usually stay in cheaper hotels, but was very happy with the facilities and lcation of this hotel. Rooms arent plush, but clean and functional, and a good size. Free internet was a bonus. Pool and gym were great. The best thingfor me was the buffet breakfast, eat all you want and no upset stomach...staff are also very polite and attentive.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool

The Kristal Hotel is just out of the city centre. Tucked away in a residential area hard to find!BUT VERY CLOSE TO Block "M" and Pondok Indah Shopping Mall one of the biggest in Jakarta. A great situation if you are familiar with the traffic chaos in Jakarta. It has a Western Pub the "Satu Lagi " with live bands most evenings also selling "good pub grub"and great cheap restaurants within walking distance and ATM and good supermart for convenience around five minutes walk. Close by to the International School
Depending on time of day and the traffic it can take 45mins to the airport.
Apartments are available at reasonable rates again depending on length of stay.Good swimming pool and very nice breakfast available

Room Tip: Ask for the biggest room available on the best terms staff will try to accomadate Swimming pool side...
