Reviewed November 18, 2013

The hotel has a fantastic location close to shops, malls and other major hotels. The staff are all friendly, courteous, hospitable and always smiling, especially Fidia. The rooms are clean, spacious and the hot water always works. The lobby lounge and bar area has a pleasant ambiance with a singer or band playing quiet music on most nights. Wifi is a decent speed but could be faster, and having to get a new password every day is a real pain.

Was here for 2 nights for business in that area. Location wise very good, just opposite Jln. Abang, the hawker street of Jakarta. Jln. Thamrin on the corner and not too far from CGK airport, it tooks me 1 hour during jam-time..! Had a deluxe room and paid around 110 usd/night. So this review is based on the 'high' rate I paid for..Public area was nice, well maintained, except the restaurant where the breakfast is.. Almost on acceptable.
Check -in and out, went smoothly and efficient. Staff good knowledge of English. Breakfast very good, enough choice for both Asian as western travelers.
Room was disappointing.. Looks rather a room of a budget hotel nowadays... Very noisy AC. Next time I have to be in this area, would rather try a few doors further... Where a budget hotel is of a big western chain... I bet those rooms are way more up to date as the rooms in the Akmani are... And definitely 50% less cheaper than the 110 usd we paid for...
Wifi was free, but not realy reliable...

We paid about US $70 per night, so my review compares the Akmani to hotels in this price range.

The pros:
- Great location near train stations and central Jakarta
- Staff is very friendly and helpful, speak English well
- Room amenities include free wifi if booked online, it was mostly decent speed
- Breakfast (included) is served over a wide time period (6a-10a) and has good variety of items
- Pool is outside but sheltered and has a nice view
- Shower is big and luxurious
- Rooms are modern, clean, and well-appointed
- Boiler is provided for preparing drinking water

The cons:
-Our "King" bed was actually a Queen turned sideways -- we're not very tall so that was OK, but if you're taller than 5'8" your toes will be hanging over
- Wifi access code is reset every day, it's a pain to call and get a new one each day
- Only one power outlet in the room! Luckily we had a USB charger that charges 4 devices at once, whew!
- Breakfast buffet could be more vegetarian-friendly
- Only two bottles of drinking water per day are provided, additional bottles are 50K Rupiah

I would definitely recommend the Akmani to people staying in Jakarta.

We picked this one based on it's location near the shopping an business cneter of the city based on Airport booking reccommendations.
It's a real gem-- boutique style hotel, locaed near the Sarinah Shopping center and central to everything in Jakarta.
I stopped twice, first time during Ramadan when the prices were lower due to slow demand, and later at a sightly higher rate.
Nice Rooms, Good service Good breakfast-- everything positive.

This is my third stay, i loved the suites last time.the greatest evaluation goes to the staff who are always smiling, hospitable. Will do injustice if i did not mention Fidiya in the lobby restaurant.extremely friendly and forceful pleasant marketer.

Food overall good.

The breakfast area needs new paint and refurbishment,

Bedlinen need to be completely replaced as they appear old and for the present business traveller they need less stressful stay sans complaints

Overall very satisfied as a business traveller

The hotel is very nice and especially personal who are very friendly and helpful although with poor English language. Main issue that I faced was with the elevators which are functioning randomly and I had to use stairs very often to the 7th floor. There was also short issue with very dirty water only once.
Location of the hotel is perfect. Room is spacious and very well equipped. Much better than expected.
