I held an event in this hotel and also stayed for a night. The hotel is an old one, I did not mind the old furniture but a-expired-looking shampoo and tooth paste were disgusting. It is better not to provide one (thus not charging it into the hotel price). We ordered dinner and they were terrible. However, the hotel porter... More

This hotel was reasonable, and the dining facilities good, but weeks in advance we had booked a suite. The key was handed over when we arrived and the porter took us up, unlocking the door. The room was a total mess. The management had no idea the rooms had not been cleaned, nor had any other preparation been done to... More

The Grand Cemara's best feature was how easy it was to get right into the city scene from it. Only about a block away is a great street which comes alive at night which was a huge plus. It also had an excellent kebab joint across the street which I would highly recommend. Everything else at the hotel was about... More

I'm a fan of both Cemara & Grand Cemara hotel but I have to choose carefully between them because often time the decision factor was on the receptionist who accepted my phone call.

I was been here and so far I noticed that the room is good and maintained, the meeting room also huge for *3 hotel like this, the bar on the rooftop was also nice. Located in very famous place Menteng in Jakarta, and Gondangdia station not far from the hotel which means accessable everywhere. Nice!
