I stayed for two nights on business. I hadn't been to Jakarta for a while and was shocked at how high the hotel prices had become. In cities like this I usually choose the older established hotels since these lower their prices in competition. Hotel Borobudur was one such place. I have been travelling long enough to know that this hotel had been one of the most reputable hotels in Jakarta once upon a time and had belonged to an international chain.
The facilities and grounds we fine. The room had good views. There was a robe and bathroom amenities were good. But of course the most appealing feature of the hotel is its low prices. I got a room for less than USD 100/night. It's hard to beat that. If you want more luxury in Jakarta you should be ready to pay for it. The fact that internet only comes via cable I can easily put up with for lower prices.
The breakfast was excellent with good service. The area looks out to a green garden and I also had lunch here. Too bad I didn't have time to have their legendary sop buntut. The location was perfect for me: between Pasar Baru and Sudirman.
