“nice room and excellent service”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I loved the room and the bathroom because it is cozy and spacious.
I also appreciated very much the excellent service of the butler, as well as the friendliness of the hotel staff.

The breakfast buffet is very good and appetizing. They offer better variety compared to other hotels. Unlike with the others, even for long stay, you won't get fed up with the breakfast choices. (I personally like the japanese and some asian choices, and the fruits)

I would like to commend them as well on how they make the room up. I like the amenities. They replenish regularly. The body wash and shampoos also smell good. When I went back to the hotel at nights, the bed sheets are always clean and well fixed.

The study table is also fit when you need to do some work.

Actually, this hotel is almost perfect.. if only the location is better. There are no nearby establishments. You would have to take a cab to go somewhere else, unless you want to dine in the hotel or have room service. The food in the hotel is quite pricey, too.

The Dharmawangsa is a marvellous luxury 5 star Boutique Hotel with many special qualities. It is located in Kebayoran Baru, south of Jakarta business district, which is one of the original founding expatriate areas. Guests are always treated with the utmost courtesy - the traditional sound of the Gamelan is audible on arrival and played during the day and evening. The Dharmawangsa is well known for its stunning Sunday brunches, Friday night BBQ evenings presented with great style and its formal dining in the superb Sriwijaya Restaurant. The Chocolate Martini is unique to the Dharmawangsa Hotel and not to be missed! The outdoor pool area is amid a beautiful tropical setting in keeping with Resort style living .. the Bimasena provides all other amenities including excellent gymnasium, indoor pool, hairdressing and spa & wellness centre. Shopping is nearby .. if you are looking for a truly luxurious & relaxing holiday, a few days outside the business sector, a very pretty wedding venue or an apartment in which to live longer term, the Dharmawangsa cannot be surpassed.

Room Tip: All rooms offer great views .. service is excellent.

The Dharmawangsa offers exceptional service in a very pleasant, calm surrounding. Different from the other 5-star high rise hotels in Jakarta, The Dharmawangsa has only a few floors in a colonial setting. Lot's of wood and local art in the public places. Huge guestrooms, to the point that the flatscreen TV has almost too small a diagonal to be watched from the bed at the other end of the room. The bathroom is very big with separate shower, bathtub, toilet and two sinks. The bed is very comfortable. We arrived late after a long flight and although the pretty and large outside pool officially closes at dawn, they "opened" it again for us. Great gym, too. All around a great place for business or pleasure.

Had 1 full day meeting in this hotel. This hotel occupies a very big area in Kemang and the external facade is nice and well maintained. A pity that the hotel name is not clearly indicated on the gates. Internal decoration is very traditional and feel warm. Good service from the staffs during the day meeting. Food quality is good but not exceptional.

For those who fond of James Bond films, there is a long list of Martini selections named after James Bond's movie titles, names used in Bond's movies, and everything about James Bond, in the Dharmawangsa hotel's lounge. Those variety of Martinis are so great at the lounging/ cocktail hours. It is IDR 155,000 ++; but worth, as the Dharmawangsa hotel is a gorgeous place, the decorations and the crowds are great and beautiful. So exciting, really.

Although, one time I was there savoring the martinis, on the 19 Aug 12, Sunday, 5 to 6pm;
I got my martini glass, served with a trace of someone else' waterproof lipstick, that was not being cleansed up properly :(

(I didn't complain that afternoon since that is the 1st day of Ied Mubarak holiday, I didn't want to ruin the feeling of the staffs who are on duty that afternoon;
I did really think they did so much extra miles by happily attending their duty on the 1st day of nation's big holiday,
I could understand they might be feeling they wanted to be at home celebrating the big day with the relatives :)
and I don't want to disturb the happiness of the companies I was being with)

I hope this would never happen again to other customers. Take care.

Cheers!

I have checked out a number of Jakarta hotels this year. This one is the best - closely followed by Hotel Mulia. Peaceful, well run, great staff, good food. . It is close enough to the centre of the city to get in reasonalbly quickly (traffic is awful though) - but has the feel of being out of the teeming madness. Large rooms - and gardens, and a great outdoor pool.

This is probably my favorite hotel of all, in over 30 countries i have been to. I love the look, the peace and relaxed atmosphere that i come back to after a busy day of meetings. I could stay here a month! The beautiful balinese / javanese design is great! I would chnage one thing though - toiletries, specifically soap, shampoo and lotion. They don't fit the look and feel, and smell of the entire hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool or garden.
