Excellent located old hotel with average to good services in the center of Jakarta. Rooms are okay and good furnished, but the bathrooms are narrow. Breakfast contains local and intercontinental food.

Room Tip: Suites are better furnished than the Superior Rooms. If you do not mind taking a shower in a small b...

I really like the jogging tract, the olympic size pool and the fitness facilities. The garden is so huge with a lot of outdoor activities, especially for walking/jogging. Feels like an oasis in the middle of over crowded and bad traffic in jakarta. The bad thing is it made me want to stay all day, enjoying all facilities than going out of the hotel :-)
The room is oke for me. Lucky that I'm small so didnt have problem with the low shower position. I think it is really give big problem for a person more than 165cm to get a good shower in the bathtub. Also got a good price for staying 3 night, only pay 2 night. Definitely cheaper than others.

The room is not big but clean and comfortable. The SPA is wonderful with a reasonable price and good service (US$33 per hour, including 20% service charge). I also like the swimming pool and jogging path. The staff at the concierge desk was not helpful. Given the traffic condition, we rented a van with a driver, which costed $60 for 4 hours.

One of the first 5 star hotels in Jakarta. They have spent money to refurbish and keep the hotel nice. However, it's still an old fashioned hotel and I guess just not my cup of tea.

Biggest minus - I am missing the beautiful smiles you find in other hotels in the country. All staff from check-in to check-out are polite, but no one smiles.

For the culinary management team, a suggestion, your hotel is famous for 'Sop Buntut', why not consider serving it for breakfast?

I stayed with a friend in the private garden suites so I cannot comment on the hotel rooms.

The apartments in the garden wing have a kitchen, dinning room, balcony and large living area, bedroom and bathroom as well as walkin robe. All furnishings were in good conditions and apartments were cleaned daily as well as I could order room service from any of the restaurants on the property.

This property I believe is on 25 hectares, so it is huge. The pool is the biggest pool I have seen at a hotel, and very clean with bar and attendance service by the pool. They have tennis courts a great gym a number of restaurants and café and I enjoyed a few coffees and cakes in the café.

The gardens in the property as very well maintained, beautiful during the day and at night also. A lot of local animals come out at night so a walk about the walking track is recommended to walk off dinner as well as listen to the night noises of the nocturnal animals.

I used the Day Sap a number of times and the services were fantastic and really cheap so I recommend a massage or facial the services were great.

Hotel security is outstanding with checks on all vehicles and all bags being checked via scanner and metal detectors that everyone must go thru. I felt very safe during my visit on the streets of Jakarta and whilst I was at the hotel.

Services provided by all staff I came into contact with was excellent, always happy, friendly and accommodating.

The hotel entrance is beautiful and there is a play area for the kids as well as a kids pool.

Taxis were always available at the hotel foyer and hotel staff always assisted to ensure the taxi drivers knew where we wanted to go.

I would recommend this hotel to all travellers and the hotel location is excellent with local parks and monuments within walking distance.

The Borobudur is located next to Merdeka monument right in the heart of Jakarta. Taxi are easily available at the hotel entrance. Very cool lobby with fresh flowers and traditional pictures. Very good lobby bar.
Big and spacious room, very clean and soft bed. Nice TV... Good service, smiling and polite front desk. No check-in/checkout queue.

Only minus is shower - it is low, height in unadjustable. Very inconvenient for tall people.

The hotel worth every dollar paid.

My 5+ rating to this hotel.

I've been to Indonesia four times so far and I always get a room at Borobudur hotel in Jakarta. The rooms are very comfortable: the hotel is quite old but it's been repeatedly revamped and the rooms are worth the price. It has a good position, very close to the Monas and the main moqsque, Mesjid Istiqlal. The main asset of this hotel, however, are the sporting facilites, which are unbeatable: a 700 mt jogging lane, an enormous swimming pool, a very good gym, tennis and squash fields and a wonderful steam bath/sauna complex. The steam bath in particular is excellent, hot and very steamy as it should always be. Moreover, it has an icy cold pool which provides the right shock to your overheated body. The breakfast is excellent, also, with a vast choice of every kind of food, both for Western and Asian customers. I definitely recommend it, if you want to unwind after the 20-hour flight from Western Europe.
