We only stayed here for one night. The entrance was impressive, the hotel looked fancy. We were taken good care of when we arrived from our long flight. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful when we found out our train tickets didn't arrive yet (another company's responsibility). The English was a bit of a challenge though. The room was okay. Quite small, but clean and we had a great view which really astonished our kids when they awoke (we already enjoyed it at night). We only discovered how busy the neighbourhood was when took a sneak peek at night. The hotel was very quiet though. The staff arranged an extra bed and baby cot for us, which was cool çause it seemed to me Santika is rather a business hotel than a family-place.
The food was okay, not really special in our opinion. Quite expensive for Indonesian terms. The staff was sweet for our kids during dinner. Breakfast was nice. In the morning we discovered that the hotel had a nice garden with a small playground, which is nice. BTW: the train station was quite close, despite the busy traffic.
The only huge disappointment was that we couldn't take a plunge in the pool at night. It was about 15 minutes before closing time. Since we had to leave early morning the next day and we had this long flight, we were really looking forward to it. And we didn't really understand why the employee there wouldn't let us take a quick splash. But well, maybe that were the rules or something...
All in all I think Santika is more like a really nice business hotel than a place to stay for families. We don't have other JKT-experiences to compare, but I would recommend it though. OK for a night, or 2.
