I stayed here mainly because it is not far from Lapangan D Senayan (was in Jakarta for Weezer). The location is good, surrounded by malls, cafe, restaurant and boutiques. Breakfast was OK although not much choices. Love the roof top swimming pool and the view. The staff was helpful and the most part I love is that there is a reflexology center in the opposite mall which offer RM20 massage per hour!

Ok then, honestly the hotel itself was great. Strategic location, nice and comfortable room, good wifi connection even from inside the room. But the food and the breakfast had messed it up, so I could only give an Average :(
That was my second time staying in Favehotel, I had previously stayed in Favehotel Bali. And that was my first time trying Favehotel menu, twice. The first one was on dinner in the restaurant located in 1st floor; their spaghetti was unsatisfying. Second one was on breakfast; corn fritters was horrible.
The other uncomfortable thing was the window position in my room. I was facing other room's window. Consequently, I couldn't open the curtain as me and my bed would be so exposed to the neighbor opposite.

(Stayed 6 nights, standard twin room no breakfast)

I chose this hotel from a friend's recommendation. It was a comfortable stay. You can get rooms for about Rp. 300,000 ++ (++ means plus a 21% tax) per night.

The room is not large, but is big enough for two people to live in relative comfort. There aren't any cabinets or drawers in this hotel, there is one large sliding door for the bathroom which can hide the cabinet area with the safe. The bathroom has very basic amenities, two toothbrushes and two bottles of water (daily with room clean) and soap dispensers for both hand and body in the shower. The shower can flood if you run the water at the highest pressure for about 10 mins, I just took the drain cover off and it was better.

Staff are friendly and speak good English. The area is vibrant and offers excellent dining options, a 7/11 is right across in the small shopping/dining complex La Codefin. KFC and McDonalds are both in walking distance if you're feeling for some fast food.

The location is a tad far from the airport being in South Jakarta. The fare is around Rp. 100,000, but don't forget tolls of Rp. 12,500 and also the airport taxi tariff that some companies have. (max Rp.10,000) A taxi to the Busway (TransJakarta) is about Rp. 12,000, to Grand or Plaza Indonesia it is about Rp. 28,000.

I dislike a couple things about the hotel though, the safe is not bolted onto the wall so it could theoretically be picked up and replaced with another. There is no fridge here as they don't offer a mini-bar facility. The Kemang area is prone to suffer through Jakarta's rainwater floods. The main road is down hill and the road where the hotel is on is in the 'valley', I just about missed my flight as waters raised to the road height of a Toyota Vios/Limo car (popular Taxi model). Besides this, I'd recommend the favehotel chain, but I may try the one near Grand Indonesia just for location wise.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road are quieter as you don't hear the horns or car engines as much.

For those who wish to stay in the Kemang area and are not willing to spend an arm and a leg Favehotel is a wonderful alternative. For less than 500,000 Rupiahs it is a great deal and walking distance to plenty of restos, bars and Lippomall. This is my third time staying there and unless fully booked I would always prefer to stay there.
The rooms are a bit on the small side and perhaps not suitable for those traveling with plenty of luggage. But if you are content with that, the rooms are bright with a comfortable bed, flat screen tv and free internet.

Room Tip: If you prefer rooms with windows not facing the interior request the ones facing the back or the fro...

The newest hotel at Kemang, the location is near of La Codefin and just a few step to main street of Kemang, this hotel have a superb location. The prices is reasonable, is cheaper than another hotel in this area, with smile and kindly services, free wifi in the bedroom, breakfast buffet, cleanliness, swiming pool at the rooftop, everything are great to me as a solo traveller. But, not for family traveler, I think.....

Budget prices for a simple yet clean, friendly, safe and efficient business hotel, with boutique-hotel interior design aspirations. The rooftop lap pool offers great views of South Jakarta, the free wifi works flawlessly on all devices, the breakfast buffet of rice/noodles plus egg station is basic but tasty and the staff are always ready to chat and offer help. In the maze of traffic-congested, small one-way streets that is Kemang, the hotel makes an ideal base and somewhere it is a pleasure (or relief) to return to. I will return here for future mini-business trips to Kemang.

Booked the room (with breakfast) from internet site with special rate. Check-in process relatively fast and easy. The receptionists are in casual uniform (typical budget hotel).

Enter the room, its quite small but cozy. There are queen size bed (as requested), couple of bed side tables, a corner table (pretty small, i even cannot put my netbook), and a plastic chair (unfortunately no room to sit on it). The room also equiped with LED TV (26inch i supposed), safe deposit box, AC, and full body mirror.

The bathroom is simple yet practical. Shower box, closet, washtafel, and a big mirror become standard. Nothing to complaint about (for now).

Breakfast at Tomodachi resto, they provide indonesian style food. The staffs are nice and helpful. They also had "egg station" where you can ask for omelette, sunny side egg, etc (which i didnt expected from a budget hotel).

The hotel also has a little swimming pool on 7th floor. You can swim and in the same time enjoy the view of Kemang.

However, there are things to be improved.
I just noticed that "the peek hole" in the front door, can actually be used by someone outside to peek inside your room (yes you read it right, someone can peek you while you dancing inside your room). This is the first time i experience this. Actually you can easily put a tissue to the hole, but still there is privacy issue for those who dont know.

Another thing is an exhaust fan inside the bathroom doesnt work. So everytime i took a bath, the bathroom become misty.

The last thing is the air conditioner. I stayed in room 630, and water dripping out from the AC. Its not much, but it still make a little bit uncomfortable.

Dear BowieSiregar,

Thank you for your compliments and valuable feedback (especially mentioning the room
number is extremely helpful) We have since fixed the AC and exhaust fan in the room, as
well as replaced the “peek hole” to be up to our usual standards (only able to see out of the
room, not into the room)
