“Everything is okay perhaps ... not sure”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2010

I spent only one night at this hotel with my friend for business purpose and I don't have any major complain for the hotel. But I think the hotel are is not spacious enough for people to move around because of its big European-style furnitures. The hotel theme is unclear, either for business traveler or for tourists as I didn't feel either formality or hospitality from the hotel employees.

Wow, this place is amazing! Old french style rooms, lobby & furniture creating a great atmosphere. The staff is the friendliest I ever came across, always smiling, helpfull and decent. They offer their help for any problem or question you might have.

The rooms are really quiet at night, the breakfast is excellent in a beautiful and cozy location - what more can you ask for?

Recently has a very good short stay at Gran Mahakam. Check in without incident. Room very nice, bedding great, excellent sleep. Renovation noise in the afternoon, voucher given for a selection of complimentary snacks or afternoon tea (not used).
Shopping Mall very nearby (Blok M Mall), a number of eateries close by, mainly Japanese restaurants, but did eat at Italian Restaurant and Nasi Padangrestaurant across street from hotel, both good. Hotel Buffet breakfast (included in Agoda rate) was very good.
Apparently nightlife nearby in Blok M, I went to nearby Kemang (short taxi ride), where there is plenty of bars and restaurants, recommended.
Hotel has a nice (albeit small) pool on the 6th floor.
Overall I had a good stay. Would recommend to others, and would stay again.

Only stayed here for 3 nights but it is a comfortable place.
Fantastic piano bar is very good hospitality.

What i Liked — Beautiful hotel with good decoration.
Location is good, as shopping centres are in easy reach.
The rooms are very comfortable, a bit small but quiet.

And what disliked — Quite noisy in the area next to reception area. Only sometimes but worth to notice.

Small issue and big winning point here is that we still love this hotel.

Check in was fast and the staffs were friendly. Arrived there late afternoon and I don’t know whether the hotel does it everyday (because my husband and I only spent 1 night there), or because there was a wedding reception held there later at that night : the lobby was filled with hundred of little candles in a small crystal place. It was a lovely sight and very romantic atmosphere
The Junior Suite was quite spacious with exquisite décor and on top condition. The room was spotless. The amenities were very nice like any other 5 stars hotel. Love the cotton ball on a glass jar. Felt like a homey touch.
Breakfast was a huuuge delight. Abundance options and all range from delicious to very delicious. Satisfying!

I stayed at Gran Mahakam early August and have no bad comment .
The hotel was having some renovation at the restaurant which didn't bother us at all. Hotel was kind enough to give us free bites due to this.
I would like to suggest the hotel's shop carry some Jakarta postcard and stamp. Some tourist may like to send postcard to friends during their stay and it's frustrated that the hotel & near by shopping center have no one selling postcard at all.

...in the european colonial style...very indicvidual and very good services.

Beside lousy shavers and cheap dry cleaners metal cloth hangers, the hotel makes an effort to please.

The massage room cannot provide soothing music by disc....computer use is US$7.00 per hour when outside it is US$0.50 cents....

Excellent and fast laundry services, great buffet choice.....a very intimate themed pool on the 6th floor overlooking the city....

A manager cannot be found...they are adverse to be confronted by customers...WHY ???

The hotel is top priced in this market segment....

Well centrally located, this mid size 5 star hotel is to be recommended.
