Ibis Budget Jakarta Menteng
Ranked #188 of 464 Hotels in Jakarta
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Yes, the location is great. I actually stayed there because it was a closest to a business meeting I had to attend.
I will not make the same mistake next time, and I will take the time to find a less expensive hotel for a better quality. Any will do, really.

The rooms are big, but there are no windows (seriously?), the bathroom is ridiculously small, there is only one power outlet for all the room and it's located near the sink which, for some reason, is outside the bathroom.

The wall are also paper thing and every single whisper from the corridor is amplified by the room configuration. Although if you like noise, the cleaning service working the the room opposite yours at ONE IN THE MORNING will leave you satisfied.

Of course since it's a budget hotel, the wifi is the only thing you'll get extra for your 400.000 IDR.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid.

I stay in this hotel cause so many good review on this site, well the location is just great, its so close to center of Jakarta and located in the very good area of business in this city. In the night some culinary experience waiting on the side of the hotel , yes so many indonesian stall offering from fried rice to chicken or lamb satay. They also offer indonesian traditional drink and juice, but almost in all area of Indonesia the juice is too sweet cause they add sugar!
Ok , the hotel is nice, its on the 2nd floor and in the 1st floor they have star buck, 7eleven and some cafe's. we choose non smoking room in 3rd floor, it was 315. well the room is small, its a budget hotel anyway so the size is just standard of this kind hotel. for me its a bit claustrophobic because no single window in the room , well there is small blurry window to the corridor but i feel its not enough lite :(

Room Tip: if you have a problems with claustrophobic syndrome, maybe just take a room with windows to the out...

when I stay there, I was felt disappointing because there are no glass windows in the room. It make me like living in a bunker or prison. put glass window on the room then will make it more comfortable.

Jakarta is truly not a tourist friendly city, with instances of mercenary and unpleasant encounters with locals. This hotel was professionally staff, clean though basic, it offered great value for money. I don't deny the rooms are relatively small, but it is common among 2-3 star standard hotels. The bathroom clean but quite small. Advantages was easy access to some must visit place. Taxi is in abundance outside the lobby. A bit expensive price for a good place to stay on a 1st trip to Jakarta.

Minimalist....yet still maintained the cleanliness, friendliness, comfort, privacy and safety. Especially for budget hotels in Indonesia, this is a 5-stars hospitality.
