I have stayed at Hotel Indonesia Kempinski three times to date, and can't have been more pleased. The hotel is very well maintained, check in is a fairly seamless process. Staff are attentive, bell boys are very helpful.
The lifts and walk to the rooms are also pleasant, but the only thing to note is that the rooms on the extreme right and left of the lifts have a very narrow corridor. It almost feels like you're in a forbidden or forgotten part of the hotel.
Once you enter the rooms, you feel immediately at home. Rooms are spacious, beds are nice and comfy and the bathrooms are my favourite part! They are big, spacious, very well organised and they have these amazing Japanese toilet seats that are sensor-operated, self warming, with plenty of fancy controls. Wifi is provided free to all guests everywhere in the hotel, which is fantastic.
There's a nice lounge in the lobby with comfortable couches for meetings or if you just have some time to kill till your flight. The lobby has a direct connection to Grand Indonesia Mall, which is very convenient if you want to do some shopping or pick up something you forgot to bring. There are also quite a few dining options there, the nicest being Social House (must make a reservation in advance!) and Sky Bar.
This hotel is located right in the city centre which is perfect if most of your work is in the area. If it isn't, beware. Traffic around the area gets really bad during peak hours and when it rains, you can get stuck at the roundabout for a good hour!
All in all, I like this hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Jakarta and staying in the heart of the city.
