Stayed 3 nights at Hotel Ciputra Jakarta and booked an Executive Room directly through the hotel's proprietary website. Citraland complex comprises of an apartment, a shopping mall and a hotel.
The process was smooth and I was being greeted by the front office staffs with a smile. Everything was done swiftly and within 5 minutes. Although the front office staffs are friendly and courteous, I felt that there was no personal touch to the service.
Hotel Ciputra is a property that is strategically adjacent to Mal Ciputra and in the vicinity of two other major malls in the area - Mal Central Park and Mal Taman Anggrek. Since the property is adjacent to Mal Ciputra, hotel guests are given the convenience of purchasing necessities from the mall itself since the mall comprises of a supermarket. However, I felt that the mall is rather old and more like a gathering place for university students from UnTar, Trisakti in Grogol area. Not that impressive but is good enough to purchase our needs. The hotel is approximately 15 minutes by car (assuming no traffic) from the Bunderan HI area.
Rooms are newly renovated which is good and enhances guests' stays. Amenities are replenished daily and are decent. Hotel Ciputra prides itself as "a 4 star international first class business hotel catering to the discerning traveler looking for exceptionally good value without compromising on luxury and comfortable" and I would say that indeed, the property is able to live up to its vision. In addition, we are given complimentary access to Executive Lounge and the availability of free WIFI makes it more convenient for business travelers.
Both fitness centre and the swimming pool are located on the 7th floor. Size of the pool is moderately small. Fitness centre is decent for workout however, some treadmills were unusable during my stay. Reach the gym at 07:15 but was not given any towels probably due to late preparation by the staffs, facilities are basic but good enough for a morning workout.
As it was my 3rd stay in Hotel Ciputra, I notice that the breakfast have somewhat improved as compared to my previous stays in the hotel. Varieties of the breakfast were extensive and good in terms of quality.
If you are looking for an affordable and value for money hotel in Jakarta Barat with comfortable rooms, then I guess Hotel Ciputra will meet that criteria. +Point for its strategic location and adjacent to a shopping mall (which not all hotels in Jakarta have).
