Oakwoods in general are great places to stay. While not exactly a hotel (more short- to medium-term corporate housing), Oakwoods are happy to rent an apartment for a short stay, if one is available. The premier Cozmo in Jakarta, like another Oakwood we stayed in for a year in Bangkok, is run in an excellent manner. The manager, Michael Price, makes personally sure of that.

In terms of location, it is in an area called Mega Cunningham. The area is very modern, with recently built hotels, embassies, some shopping within walking distance, bars and restaurants. Watering holes include Cazbar (expat bar), Pepe Nero (an OK Italian restaurant), Loewy's (a Belgian/French restaurant and bar), great brunch buffet in the JW Marriott, fried noodles and sushi fast food, & the restaurant & room service in the Oakwood itself.

The Marriott and the Ritz across the street were bombed by Islamic terrorists in 2009. That may sound scary but I do not think it detracts from the attractiveness of the Oakwood in any way.

The staff at the Oakwood is incredible. Front desk, room service, maid - everybody. We were away for a year and when we returned to do some more work in Jakarta on March 1, the concierge brought my laundry left behind 12 months before, as if they did it every day!

My present office takes almost an hour to reach, and we could find housing in Kemang in a house with domestic staff for about the same price. Yet, I prefer to live here because of the quality of the service, elegance and ambiance.

A few practical tips:
1.- Traffic: The location is quite convenient if you work in Mega Kuningan or nearby, i.e. in the stock exchange area. Any other area of Jakarta can take 1-2 hours to reach when traffic is heavy. Keep in mind that Jakarta has generally poor public transportation: a few lines of decent buses, but no subway or skytrain, unlike Bangkok, Singapore or KL. If you do not have a car & driver, Blue Bird and Silver Bird taxis are you main means of transportation. A Blue Bird (usually a Toyota Corolla) will cost about US$ 7 halfway across Jakarta. A Silver Bird (black C-Class or E-Class Mercedes) will cost about US$11-12. The nearest upscale mall is Pacific Place next to the Stock Exchange building (10 minutes by taxi on a good day, 1 hour when traffic is bad).

2.- Noise: The Oakwood is generally very quiet and, if you are staying on one of the upper floors, there is no road noise. However, Indonesia is a Muslim country and the first prayer call from the surrounding mosques comes quite early. When reserving an apartment, ask for one where the bedroom window faces the Kuningan traffic circle. The other sides of the building have mosques in line of sight. Unless you want a 4:30 am wake-up call every morning, follow this advice.

The panoramic views from the apartment are out-of-this-world! The staff are professional and more than friendly. Kids had a great time in the pristine kids playroom and the infinity pool is a great place to relax. It's location next to a supermarket is very convenient for families. My son lost the toy he'd bought at the store next door and the staff, without hesitation, offered to buy him a new one. We really felt right at home.

The location of the property is absolutely magnificent. It is right in the middle of the best area in Jakarta. Close to many embassies, shopping center, great restaurant etc...
The property is very clean with cleanign staff are very friendly and efficient.
However, the security staff of this property is terrible. They do complete body search to their own customers, including opening your bags without permission. I saw 5 years old children being searched! it is ridiculous.

These people need to stop being stupid in the name of security.
