Amaris Hotel Mangga Dua Square
Ranked #343 of 471 Hotels in Jakarta
Reviewed March 7, 2013

One of the main reasons we had picked this hotel for this trip was because it is one of the closest hotels to the Jakarta International Java Jazz Fest 2013 venue at the Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran. True enough, it wasn't quite close and despite the jam, we got to the venue and back in good time. It was also a good distance to all the other places we wanted to visit and to the airport too. And, as far as location goes, the bonus is that it is only like 10 seconds away from the Mangga Dua Square mall! Seriously, the entrance to the mall is right next to the hotel entrance - how convenient! This means that you can easily pop over to the mall, never worry about rain, transport or getting lost! Lots of shops, so, you can do a bit of shopping, have your meals (a variety of local food & international fast food brands) & there's a Carrefour too! Nice!

Having stayed at Amaris Cimanuk, this Amaris is considered huge! Alas, the rooms are still small.. but the space was well utilised and you get a small space (with hangers) to hang your clothes, a space beneath it that fits a cabin bag snugly, a small writing desk (of sorts) & bedside tables. The bathroom is of decent size with hot/cold water, good water pressure & there are soap & shampoo dispensers. The room also has a TV with numerous channels & a small safe. No tea/coffee making facilities but there's a hot/cold water dispenser on every floor. So, you can still make a hot beverage if you like as they do provide mugs in the rooms but.. NO spoons! You may want to bring one of those disposable spoons back after a visit to one of the fast food joints at the mall next door! Haha.. The room we stayed in was one in the middle row and although it had a window, it looked out to an empty space in the building. This wasn't not disappointing in the least, in fact, it turned out a blessing as it made the room really quiet and sleep very peaceful! Plus, the air conditioner worked well, the bed & pillows are comfy & the room was very clean.One minor snag though - the common area light shines in from the window & window shade is rather thin, so, don't expect darkness at night. Fortunately for us, we were quite tired and it didn't bother us!

Buffet breakfast is included in the room rate & the spead consists of mainly Indonesian fare, but there is also an egg station, bread for toasting, congee & fruits. Personally, I found the food to be fine, especially 'uncomplicated' dishes like congee, fried rice & fried noodles, but my friend didn't enjoy the food as much. There's also a cafe in the hotel, but then again, you have the mall next door.

I enjoyed my stay here and wouldn't mind staying here again.

I stayed for 3days and 2 night last september 2012 with all my office colleagues as we are on company teambuilding trip.

Ihave arranged the booking through Air Asia Go website. Upon checked in the hotel reception area was packed of guest lining up for registration and only 2 person handling check in. Waiting area or lobby is too cramp and small. By right only one person from each group which was assigned to be the leader handling all delegates and refer to the listed that we have provided should be sufficient. The hotel staff insisted to see individual passport of guest for verification thus making the counter crowded. It should not be the way to handle big group.

The room is clean with modern facilities and having flat a screen TV hangging opposite to the bed. This hotel is very suitable for those who preferred simple and convenience as on the ground floor connected to the building is the shopping mall. If a traveller just need a good rest at night without bordering so much on thier facilities, this is the right choice.

Dear Mr. Rahim E.

Thank you for taking your valuable times in writing your review about our hospitality and services. We are proud of having you as our loyal guest. It is an honored to be able to give our excellent service to you while you were staying with us.

The passport verification is a regulation for the hotel. We do corrective action by separate check-in when handling group to avoid crowded in lobby area.

We are much looking forward to welcome you back in the future visits.

- my second time staying here, and I'm satisfied with my stay.
- polite staffs, always smiling and greeting us.
- very clean room, eventhough simple, but adequate.
- I especially love the location, attached to the Mangga Dua Square mall. I can even go shop at the mall till it's closed and have a safe journey back to the hotel. Just 2 minutes walk from the mall :)
- nice free breakfast. I love the chicken porridge.
- within walking range to ITC Mangga Dua, Pasar Pagi, Harco
- complimentary mineral water provided, and hot/neutral/normal water dispenser is provided at near the rooms

Room Tip: ask for a room with the wash basin inside the toilet. I got a room with a wash basin outside the toi...

I have been staying for 5 night. The first two night was only for trial and i were happy at there. Then simply because i have changed my itinerary, i extended my stay for another 3 night.

It is in very very good location. I can go to Mangga Dua, jAKARTA Old Town and other public locations easily. The best thing is the hotel just in front of DAMRI Bus Depot which you can use to go to airport.

I also like their Nasi Goreng which is superb!. The breakfast food is also very good and delicious. The staff are very helpful and polite. The Internet is very fast and reliable.

I found that booking from the INternet was cheaper than book in the receptionist if you want to extent your stay.

However, I would like to have a laundry service in the future and phone call facility.
I am sure will come back to Amaris Mangga dua in the future when visiting my family in Jakarta.

Room Tip: We had been given a deluxe room and so far I have no problem at all.

The hotel is a conversion of what was a parking lot in the shopping mall. Most of the rooms don't have windows facing the outside, however all rooms are equipped with window for emergency exit.

The location is good, its within a shopping mall (trade center) of Mangga Dua Square, nearby to the Mangga Dua area, about 1 km away from the Ancol theme park and with easy & direct access to the Jakarta outer ring road toll gate, connecting to the airport. The old town located about 2 km away.

There's a public bus to the airport from the compound and several travel agent providing minibuses to Bandung, the TransJakarta busway also passes right in front of the complex.

The hotel lobby is located in the back side of the mall, first-timer might not easily find it.

All in all, it was a good stay, average budget hotel with quite decent breakfast (and if its not enough, there are plenty in the surroundings). Location, access and surroundings are the best part of the hotel, especially for leisure activities. Service was ok.

Room Tip: all rooms are the same
