This place is very overrated and sterile. It is typical of an Indonesian "city" hotel with a very smart and impressive foyer but the rooms are not very special and the restaurant is terrible!!
When we were there a conference was on and we couldn't even get to the pool as that was where all the men were hanging around smoking.
The hotel has no atmosphere and is very expensive for what you get.
As it was STILL under construction in late October there was plenty of banging going on till 9pm which made it pretty tough to sleep. It is also a fair way out of town with nothing around.
When we were there the hotel did not have a license so we couldn't buy alcohol in fact we couldn't even get a tonic water!!!!
We checked out a day early and enjoyed one night in Jakarta which was a much better experience all up. This place was the only dud on an otherwise brilliant holiday with the Orangutans!
