“Nice breakfast but quite far from city centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

I traveled alone to jakarta and stay at this hotel for 1 night. The room was nice and clean. The breakfast in the morning was amazing. Many choices for the food and the tastes were good.

Too bad the hotel was quite far from anything. It's diffucult to find decent food near hotel and it's quite far from city centre. If you want to see main Jakarta attraction such as Monas, you have to take a taxi from hotel or take any public transportation to city centre. The good news is there are taxi standby 24 hours in front of hotel and it's just 10 min walking to nearest busway stop that can take you anywhere in Jakarta.

Stayed March 2013, traveled solo

This hotel actually is good. Nice and comfy room, but I just wanna take from the side of the services. The services of the Anggrek Lounge is too slow. Its need more than 15 minutes to get the orders and about 30 minutes to get our dinner serve for 3 of us.
They might should improve on this matter.

We stayed at Hotel Bidakara for 2 weeks for a family members wedding. The rooms were very comfortable, clean, and you have a great outlook onto Jakarta City. All of the staff members were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. It was wonderful that they had a small children's play area, as well as a big outdoor pool. We spent most of our time here. The meals were slightly disappointing, so we went out for meals most days. However, the breakfasts in the morning were wonderful with plenty of healthy fruit, cereals as well as Indonesian cuisine as well which was very tasty. Overall we had a good experience here for a hotel that isn't really designed for Western tourists, it is really designed for travelling business people and for large wedding functions.

Totally average hotel!
Not for the vacation type travellers but mostly suitable for business travellers since the location is somewhat nearby Setiabudi Area - Jakarta's Golden Triangle (Rasuna-Gatot Subroto-Sudirman).
The function hall is quite famous in Jakarta due to the strategic location and abundant indoor parking lot, the soon to be married couple need to book it 1yr earlier if they want to held the party here. There are literally nothing to enjoy in this hotel/ area, the good thing is there is a commercial arrea attached so it will helps in case you wanna buy some stuff or food.

Love the asian food here,
hainan rice, mie jawa and others.


The cake is not too sweet (old taste).
Please improve the varieties of foods.


For the rooms:
I did not remember the type of rooms that i took years ago, but it is a bit small than other hotels with the same type of room.

Old fashioned hotel.
Very typical city hotel with less recognition but fast and firm in servicing.
The rooms feel tired and should had been maintained better.
I guess it come to how far you wanna spend in maintaining the product quality...

But it provide huge function room. Good for wedding meeting etc...

You get what you pay for at the Bidakara.
The hotel is a bit old and tired: stained carpet, sheets, corridors that smell like smoke, dirty and missing grouting in the shower. The sun-lit gymnasium is somewhat of a greenhouse with floor to ceiling windows, no airconditioning and rather old rusting equipment. The breakfast, as others have said, was a positive (but don't confuse the chocolate flavoured bread for rye bread as we did!). The hotel has a mini-mart in the basement that can provide you with snacks, beers etc. There are also a number of function rooms that - when dressed up for a wedding reception - look amazing.
If you want a roof over your head then the Bidakara does the trick, but we won't be back.
