The hotel is good but it lacks the luxury to make it 4-star hotel.
It only took 30-40 minutes from Airport to this hotel. The roads nearby this hotel are always crowded and you will encounter traffic jam in no time. Location-wise, the hotel is an excellent choice if you are going to visit primarily Ancol/Dufan/SeaWorld and Mangga Dua shopping centres. Less than 10 minutes of cab ride (IDR 10,000). Yes, the hotel provides free shuttle bus to these locations. However, they are too infrequent. Considering that the location is very near, they could have a 10-minutes interval shuttle bus or a ride upon customer request (i guess there won't be too many hotel guests taking the shuttle bus). Other destinations in the central area might cost you 30 minutes ride and IDR 50,000.
We stayed in 2-bedroom-unit and it was good in overall. But there were a couple of minor things that they could have done better. It was generally clean, but if you can find that the floor is a bit dirty at the gaps between your bed and the wall. Avoid going to balcony as it's dirty. There was water leaking from i-dont-know-where to the balcony. The ceiling paints (right above the dining table) was falling down. You need to clean the table and the chairs before you eat on the table. I would prefer carpet to tile flooring as well.
There are two bathrooms. One is in the common area and the other one is attached to the master room. The one in the common area does not have bath up, but the shower was great. The other bath room has bath up and shower cube, but there was no curtain to prevent you to wet the floors. Oh ya, the lighting in that bathroom is not good either as one of the bulb spoilt. I was quite disappointed to know that they don't provide toothbrush. I expected a good hotel to provide the full bath-ammenities.
The bedrooms are okay. The master room has television and queen-size-bed.The common room has two twin beds but they are somehow separated by a partition and you can't see each other.The aircon in the common room is not working well. You need to wait for an hour before you can feel the difference.
Breakfast is good. They offer many choices, but you can really eat some of them.
