We wanted a nicer place to stay for a change since we got stuck in Jakarta due to fully booked trains. So this is the view of someone who has been traveling through Southeast Asia for several weeks (and often in the years before) before coming here. Book online as they have better rates there! For 440.000 Rupiah for a... More

The location is at the center of Jakarta. Very convenient. However, the greater part is the hospitality of the staffs. They have been very helpful. The room is very clean and neatly made up. I would also recommend the 'Nasi Goreng Cemara', 'Soto Ayam' and 'Ayam Kremes'. The buffet is also awesome. Basically, food are overall delicious. Last but not... More

We stayed here for just two nights. The rooms were clean and comfortable. For Jakarta, the rates were good. There is a convenience store across the road. The staff were not overly friendly, but they did their job. There is a restaurant and bar downstairs and you can get a breakfast buffet, which is good value. Would I stay again?... More

this is the sister hotel of Cemara Hotel. The new one is Cemara Hotel and much better but price more expensive. Location about 5 - 10 minutes walk to Sabang Street to find food. For business is ok but for leisure I will not recommend.

For many years, Cemara was a very good centrally located place for journalists, researchers, NGO-workers and others who didn't like to spend their money in luxurious Mandarin or Sari Pan Pacific but needed middle-class standards, friendly service and good communications. I stayed for long periods. It's IT wasn't upgraded, however, so many of us had to go elsewhere. Recently I... More

I stayed here for business meeting for 3 days. The lobby looked fine and quite artsy but when you go up to your room, it will look rather like villa than a hotel, in a bad way. The ceiling is so short and the air feels stifled along the corridor. Also, this hotel has two lift for reaching different scale... More
