“Pretty OK, regarding Indonesian budget standards”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Stayed in this hotel for five nights for business purposes.

Location:
Located besides a bussy street (but which street in Jakarta isn't). A 7Eleven is located 100 meters from the hotel and a shopping center is within walking distance of the hotel (15 minutes walk).

Hotel features:
The lobby is quite spacious and air conditioned, as well is the breakfast room, but there are only a few comfortable sofa's to hang out in the evening. WiFi signal and speed are OK for Indonesian standards. Breakfast was extensive, but not very tasteful, featuring toast, omelets, Indonesian breakfast stuff like nasi and mie, and fresh fruit, coffee and tea. Perhaps the worst point about the hotel is it's laundry service. First, it's pricey (i.e. €1,- per shirt), secondly they mixed up socks and t-shirts between people of our visiting group and secondly, they ruined a few shirts and neat trousers by ironing it too hot and too long. Multiple >€100 trousers were ruined during our visit, and after extensive discussion with the hotel staff, the only compensation was around €5.

Rooms:
The hallways, leading to the different rooms were, in contrary to the lobby, not air-conditioned.
Rooms were average size, but were clean. The beds were of outstanding quality and the air-conditioning was quiet and adequate. Our room was quiet, but a bit dark with a window facing a wall of the next building at three meters offset. The bathroom was a bit thorn and we were greeted by some insects when entering the bathroom sometimes (although no cockroaches). The fridge was a bit noisy, but the tv had a good range of channels.

All in all: average hotel, even for Indonesian budget/midrange standards. The essentials are good (beds, aircon), but all the secondary features are so-so.

Stayed here for two nights in the superior room. Generally rooms in Jakarta are expensive. It is situated right opposite Taman Ismail Marzuki (TIM), which is the Art Centre. When I was there, it was lively, but am not sure if art festivals is held at that venue all year round. It can get quite noisy and you can hear it from your room. The room is quite nice and water pressure for the bathroom is good. Channels on the TV is adequate and you need to go outside of the room to get hot and cold water. There is nothing in the fridge, and the room does not come with safety deposit box. Wi fi in my room is really sucky, as you need to stand near your room door to get it. Breakfast ain't that great either. There isn't much in Cikini or Jakarta in general. Everything seems expensive and of course the constant traffic jam makes you don't want to go anywhere. However, there is a 7Eleven nearby the hotel, you can buy/make any type of coffee you can possibly imagine, and for eateries, there are a few along the street (ain't that great), but watch out when you are walking along the road because vehicles that are passing by usually don't give way to people who are walking along the road. It's dusty, crowded and dirty. The hotel has a small pool ( I didn't bother to swim there) and you are allow to swim for an hour max.
