I have just spent a week at Hotel Indonesia Kempinski and found it a fantastic hotel. The room was very well appointed (the automatic toilet was quite novel) and my room overlooked the Selamat Datang Monument roundabout, so I was in a prime viewing seat for the infamous Jakarta traffic! The traffic noise was not too disturbing but did creep in every now and again, mainly the sirens of police and military vehicles.
The staff at the hotel are wonderful, all so very welcoming, friendly and helpful. By my second day there, the staff in the breakfast dining area knew me by name.
As I had to work some quite long hours in my hotel room I got to experience their in room dining menu which has a good range of both western and Indonesian cuisine, but I would have liked a little more "kick" in the Indonesian meals as I think that they may have toned them down for the western palate. I also took advantage of a wonderful massage treatment that was wonderful.
Being next door to a very large shopping mall complex was very convenient, although I only got to experience it on the Friday night before flying out. Next time I am back I will explore this more particularly for all the restaurants and cafes. I did get to experience Kopi luwak coffee (cat poo coffee beans) in a cafe and well worth the experience, a very nice coffee indeed!
Overall a fantastic hotel with great staff, highly recommended, great staff and facilities.
