“Raw, hip design. BUT...”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

My husband was temporary transferred to Jakarta on business, so I decided to visit him for a long weekend. We chose this serviced apartment instead of Alila, upon hearing it's award winning design reviews.
Positive points:
1. Good value.
2. Good location. Menteng's a hip area for yuppies, and the hotel is smack in the middle of it. There's a bar downstairs with live music in the evenings. From the pool deck, you could see Monas and the CBD skyline. It's also fairly close to Grand Indonesia (only Rp.10,000; equivalent to about USD $1- by cab)
3. For the price we paid, we were fairly pleased with the breakfast options. During holidays (we were there during Chinese New Year), they offered a Chinese-themed menu.
4. The common amenities are well designed, comfortable.
5. Convenient. Knowing Jakarta: as much convenience as possible is highly required! Fortunately, a taxi stand is there. Blue Bird, most trusted taxi operating company in Jakarta.

Negative points:
1. Service was rather slow.
2. Maintenance. The staff need to clean up the place more. The glass, cladding is staining. The sink of the bathroom in our studio was a little clogged.
3. The room need to be furnished to be a little 'warmer'. We understand the 'raw' design of exposed concrete ceiling and exposed brick walls. But a hint of timber, warm hues will contribute a lot in making us want to stay in the room longer rather than wandering about in common areas.
4. Some may consider its close proximity to the mosque as a negative point. The prayer calls may tend to be a little on the loud side.

Room Tip: Get a room which has a view of the Jakarta CBD skyline.

This is my third stay here and will always be whenever i'm in Jakarta. The room is still clean, spacious and great. The only downside was the customer service which i found not as efficient as it was before Morrissey took over (it was under Ascott last time). However, despite that, breakfast spread was way better than before!

Morrissey will always be the place for me. :)

This was a great no-frills service apartment. The rooms were basic, but most importantly clean. I found that I got excellent value for what I paid for. There is a delicious "bakmie / noodles" place 5 mins walk away and the restaurant at the lobby has an nice vibe with an acoustic band playing. I would definitely stay here again.

Price/quality this is a good hotel in Jakarta.

The location is good and the staff is very friendly. The hotel is top design. The rooms are minimalistic (in my personal opinion rooms focus too much on design and not enough on cosiness) but well appointed, even including a kitchenette.
Wifi was working fine and is free.
There's an excellent Italian restaurant downstairs. On the roof is a small swimming pool with lounge area.

Breakfast is average. Also the noise from the neighbouring mosques is a minus.

Hotel morrissey was a pleasant surprise. Wonderfully designed,has a great modern contemporary feel with a vintage edge. Rooms were clean, spacious and secure. Customer service was fantastic everyone was very nice and helpful. The hotel has a great bar/ Italian restaurant if your tired and want something easy and stress free. The roof top pool is fantastic, with a great lounge area. This hotel has everything you'd want from a 4 star hotel, it's in a great location, offers free wifi , free breakfast,with plenty to choose from. It has all the extras like pool, flat screen tv, safe and housekeeping. There is only one problem. It is located close proximity to a mosque that projects prayers that not even ear plugs can drown out 4am and 6.00 am in the morning. The noise from the closest mosque is so loud it feels as if someone is screaming outside your window. We asked to move our room but were told we were already in the quietest area of the hotel. I read some of the reviews about the noise before booking and thought it must be light sleepers or perhaps the area in the hotel your staying. The previous reviews about the volume of the noise are no exaggeration. I arrived at the hotel after a 14 hour transit at 1am in the morning exhausted and still got woken from a deep sleep at 4am. The morrissey is truely a fantastic hotel, the design, the facilities and service is beyond wonderful, if it weren't for the unbelievably loud noise, I would recommend this hotel 20 times over.

As the title suggests the Morrissey Boutique Serviced Apartments gives the impression of a very zen-like home away from home. In my mind it's perfect for business travelers or those who want a more quiet and laid-back setting.

Simply walking into the Morrissey Apartments is a pleasant experience as the interior is well decorated and clean. All of the staff are very polite and were eager to meet our requests for taxis or assistance with room-related requests such as kitchen utensils and toiletries. Another positive is the low population within the building - it always seems quite quiet and it's never long to wait for an elevator.

A basic room at the Morrissey is more spacious than basics at most other hotels. Clever use of space means the 29 sqm seems quite large and features a sofa as well as a kitchenette. Chic furnishings make it seem more boutique and designer than basic rooms at the higher end hotel chains as well. However, as mentioned by others there is some very very light noise that comes from the mosque and the sun-shades aren't strong enough to completely block incoming light.

Other features such as breakfast buffet, rooftop pool, residents lounge, gymnasium and sky garden were all pretty nice additions to the hotel and great for the price. It's even got a self-serve laundry room which opens 24/7 so you're able to get your washing done quickly and easily. Great if you're planning a longer trip!

Overall, staying at Morrissey was excellent compared to the other hotels throughout Indonesia. A couple of minor adjustments would make it pretty much perfect but it's already exceptional value at the ~$70 AUD per night paid.

Room Tip: Not sure about the orientation of the rooms. Sound of the mosque in 912 was a lot quieter than 907 b...

Everything in this hotel makes us feel we're not in crazy traffic Jakarta eventhough they're in crazy busy location, right in the central of Jakarta. Easy Check In, they served apple at the front office. the room is always my favorite. Feel like we're in somewhat Western Country. The surrounding was very quite and private, which Me and My Husband like. The pool is small but divinely nice (glasses pool), and they have this living room on the same floor as the pool. Very modern interior and feels homy. Breakfast simple but right taste for foreigner.
