A very decent hotel that is tucked away from Jakarta's street noise. The surroundings with trees makes it looks even better. Rooms are decent and cosy enough that makes the stay pleasurable. Breakfast spread were rather limited

nice room for its price. clean and friendly staff. unfortunately i dont find fire escape in the 5th floor, a little bit scary in emergency case though. The internet connection was extremely slow, hardly open my email. if you need a good internet connection in your room, this hotel is not for you.

We stayed here on our arrival to Indonesia because it is near to the train station (Gambir), the hotel is nice and the staff were helpful. We found it very noisy as it's right next to a busy junction, this may have just been because we were in the first room and had a window facing the junction. There is... More

I stayed here for 3 or 4 times in different years. This hotel is well-situated in the heart of jakarta. Well don't expect too much from the facility, but the room is spacious and nice. But the bathroom is old and needs to be renovated. Well if you travel to jakarta and need to find a simple place to stay... More

We had not stayed in this hotel since June 2010. Still a pleasant experience because the staff are very nice. However the hotel itself seemed to be tired compared with our last visit. Some cracked tiles in the bathrooms, shower doors not sliding and showers quite old. Needs a bit of TLC... The breakfast room/restaurant remain very useable. Not many... More
