I stayed in Prasada Mansion after one night in StudioOne, not because the latter was bad, but because I got budget upgrade, so I decided to take up a hotel. And so, I decided to stay in Prasada Mansion after a few search in google.
I was using Taxi from Ambassador Mall to Prasada Mansion, and I got some difficulty reaching it. The thing is, the road to get there is narrow and almost like a maze if you take the wrong turn. And I don't think this place or the road to it is familiar to many Taxi drivers.
I stayed in Deluxe Non-smoking room (yes, I think they have smoking room) for approx. USD 50 plus USD 20 for deposit. They use magnetic key card for the room and elevators. The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable, and its size met my expectation. Two complimentary PET bottles of mineral water, along with complimentary instant coffee, teabag, sugar, and diet sugar (corn sugar) - two each - was already in the room. There's a water heater, but I think the water heater and the complimentary mineral water were not necessary actually, since there were hot/cold water dispensers in the hall, but it was a good gesture. They provided standard bathroom amenities. The shower got hot water, but when I used it, it took sometime for the hot water to rush in.
They got quite a selection of channels for TV, not too great, but it's good enough for me. The air conditioner worked well. And they got free WiFi, albeit the low signal strength, so make sure to ask for username and password at the check-in counter. But the connection speed was pretty decent for a free WiFi. They also had room service, which I used to iron two of my shirts for approx. USD 1,50. The foods in the room service menu weren't expensive, Fish & Chips were only USD 3, tho I don't know about the size of the meal. There was no telephone in the room, to call the front desk or room service, you have to go to the hallway, next to the elevators. The bed was comfortable and I slept soundly on it.
Breakfast consisted of a few choice of main course, on my occasion, the choice were Fried Rice, Fried Noodle, Omelette, or Chicken Porridge. There were also toast with butter and strawberry jam, cereals, mini salad & fruit bar, juice, coffee, and tea. I personally had Fried Rice with Omelette made to my preference along with salad, toast, a glass of juice, and a glass of water. The taste was quite good. The staff is helpful and friendly. They could also provide taxi if we told them 30 minutes prior to departure time.
Overall, we (my and my colleague) are pleased with our stay in Prasada Mansion. But I think they really need to update their website, with how-to-reach-us tips. If it's not because of the difficulty to reach it, I'd score a perfect 5 for Location. The only thing that made me score them 3 is that they're actually in the center of some major business districts, namely Sudirman, Kuningan, and Setiabudi. But I'd still recommend this hotel for Jakarta business travelers.
