The Sultan Jakarta is an impressive hotel, but I did have a few issues with it.
I would recommend the hotel for anyone attending a conference at the Jakarta Convention Centre - the hotel is linked by an underground tunnel, which means that you don't have to battle the traffic on the streets.
The hotel itself is aesthetically grand, and the staff were lovely and friendly, but it lacks attention to detail in some aspects, and seems like it's getting a little old. While my room was large and nicely appointed, the carpet and bedspread were stained. The bathroom was great, but the water in the shower seems to drain very slowly, so it's like you're showering in a shallow bath at times.
One thing that impressed me were the beds and the pillows - I haven't slept that well in a hotel ever.
There are several restaurants to eat at, which were all great except for the Peacock Cafe, where breakfast is also served - the buffet food wasn't all that appetising.
The gym facilities are good and the equipment seems quite new. The spa treatments are also cheap and excellent.
One big problem was internet connection, which is wireless in most areas of the hotel. Apparently there are some rooms with LAN connections, but I don't know where they are. The wireless was painfully slow at times, and it might be better to use the computers in the business centre.
