“A nice boutique hotel”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

This small hotel has a nice classic design . Although the building is old however I think they maintain it well. I like the design and the hotel smells fresh. The bed and the pillow are very comfy. The hallway is very quite. All the staffs are very helpful.

Gran Mahakam is a boutique business hotel with a touch of luxury that really outperforms its bigger 5-star competitors. It attracts business and NGO people and Japanese and Korean guests and Indonesian officials from nearby offices in South Jakarta (the Attorney-General's Dept is just around the corner). Service and food are first class - the cafe breakfast and lunch buffets feature Western, Indonesian and Japanese choices and the house restaurant (Aoki) has good quality Japanese cuisine. The spa is newly renovated and the services are excellent. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, though a little pre-loved and close to needing refurbishment. The abundant fresh flowers and really thoughtful and warm staff really make you feel at home. Boutique means small, so while exquisite, all the features -- pool, small, cafe, lobby, meeting rooms -- are smaller than you would find in a bigger property. Bonuses are a park steps from the door and a pleasant local neighbourhood for early-morning strolls, as well as convenience stores and cafes on the same block as the hotel. Location is excellent for meetings in South Jakarta; Blok M shopping mall is a block away and the upmarket South Jakarta malls such as Senayan Plaza are a 15-20 minute cab ride away.

Stay here if you have a meeting, seminar or workshop in the neighbourhood. But its a bit far from Central Jakarta and you need to ride a taxi there. But then again, taxis in jakarta are clean, very reasonable tariffs, and the drivers are polite and obliging and don't smoke in their taxis, unlike for eg. KL where your driver can refuse you a ride if he choose to (which is illegal).

The GH is exactly as it claims...a boutique hotel, located In Jakarta South, or more precise in the Block M suburb. Its a bit pricey of course, but it fully deserves its five-star rating and befits what you pay for.The breakfast, lunch and dinner are just so excellent. And they really give you personal service, Its as if they want you to try everything on the menu. Smiles are aplenty and abundant. And the spread on the table would not disappoint you.
If you wish to eat food for the masses, there are at least 50 road side vendors selling authentic Indonesian fare, one minute walk away. If you prefer to be less adventurous, try Burger King, KFC and the like at the well-equipped Plaza Block M, which is about 5 minutes slow walk.

The rooms are very comfortable and very clean. The swimming pool is more accurately a lap pool, but the view is magnificent. If you prefer jogging, there's a small park with a jogging track nearby, about 5 minutes slow walk from GH.

This hotel was a great surprise, as I tend to find Jakarta hotels charmless... I felt like I was in Europe at a smart clean boutique hotel!

Staff was lovely, even though I checked in at 5AM - clerk was perky and awake and sweet, my room, 619 was fresh and clean and lovely comfy bedding and Siberian Air con! Much needed in Jkt! ;-)

The breakfast was really wonderful, the decor tasteful. Can't wait to go back and actually explore the rest of what the hotel has to offer since I was there for a very brief night!

One of the best features was my own router in the room with no password, I am so SICK of these fancy hotels that make you log on to a page and then retype user name and password ad nausem.. and then kick you off every 20 minutes... This hotel understands that wifi is as necessary as hot water in a room: Thank you Gran Mahakam!

Beberapa kali ke hotel ini untuk menghadiri acara di Magnolia ballroom dan bulan lalu baru akhirnya saya mencoba menginap di hotel ini. Kami memilih Gran Suite yang merupakan duplex room. Bagian bawah menyerupai ruang tamu dengan sofa dan tv dan di bagian atas terdapat bathroom dan kamar tidur. Sangat nyaman dan homey. Luas per lantai tidak terlalu luas tapi dengan high ceiling dan dua lantai itu jadi berasa tidak sumpek. The duplex complex juga memberikan privacy jika kedatangan tamu atau ingin menghabiskan waktu sendiri di lt bawah/atas. Pilihan breakfast sangat menarik, lengkap dengan dim sum dan customized pasta! Thumbs up.
