I chose the Morrissey due to its close proximity to the office I was working in while in Jakarta. It offered excellent value for money and comfort and I was not disappointed in my stay.
My studio room was spacious and clean, perfect for the solo business traveler. The staff were helpful and friendly and available for all enquiries. On my first day I noticed that the door required some extra effort to lock properly and a maintenance man was sent immediately to fix the problem. Requests for taxis at reception were promptly acted on and advice and assistance from the reception staff, including updated wifi passwords each week was delivered with a friendly smile every time. I requested a late check-out on my final day and they were more than happy to help, updating my keycard on the spot and ensuring I was comfortable with the additional charges which were not extravagant.
My room was an a floor that appeared to allow smoking and there was some smell of it in the public corridors and in the rooms. I bought a small disposable air freshener to use for the length of my stay and didn't notice the smokey smell much after the first couple of days. My room was also facing the mosque nearby to Jalan Jaksa and the call to prayer was quite loud, but I soon became accustomed to it and didn't notice it much and was not woken by it during my stay.
Travelling alone for business means lots of meals out which can become tiring, so it is nice to have a small kitchenette where some meals could be prepared during my stay. Pots and pans, crockery and cutlery and cooking knives were all adequate.
The housekeeping staff were fantastic, patient with me when I was still in the room when they arrived to clean and quite flexible about returning at a time that was more convenient to me. My room was always cleaned well and the laundry service was also great.
The one thing that is missing from this hotel that would take it up to a 5 star review would be some form of room service for those times when you just want to flake out in front of the TV. Although it was certainly not difficult to grab quick meals in the neighborhood and the café downstairs was quite nice, its a bonus in hotels to pick up the phone to reception and order some food without having to think too much about it.
