“Good location, reasonable price, but a bit dated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

Stayed late 2012 for 3 nights in a suite which had king size bed, large bathroom, living room, and guest toliet. Hotel is situated just off the main toll way leading into the CBD area of Jakarta. Easy to access and also close to a couple of big malls. If you need to be central then this hotel is good for that.

Price was reasonable - US$90/night. But the hotel and facilities are getting a bit old and in need of replacement etc. The rooms you could smell the musty air and the carpets were really very stained in some spots.

Breakfast was included which was good, but not great.

No wifi in the rooms, but if you had laptop with LAN access it's OK. Just don't expect lightning quick internet (to b expected actually).

All in all, I would stay there again mostly because of the price and location. There's newer cleaner places in Jakarta CBD but prices would be in excess of $130+, so you get what you pay for I guess.......

3-4 star hotel at 3-4 star prices.

Menara Peninsula has always been my 2nd option for business trip in Jakarta. The hotel location is excellent especially considering it's price tag. The breakfast is another plus with wide selection from indonesian, western, asian & vegetarian breakfast. The internet connection is better than average hotel in Jakarta with the selection of wifi & wired LAN, all with satisfying speed.

However, there are some factor that make it my 2nd selection. Firstly, the furniture and carpet in the hotel is clearly been used in quite some time, almost all is still functional but surely can be better. The trip from your room to the lobby in the morning is also quite frustating with long q and the elevator stopping in almost all floor. Lastly, during my trip in last year i got there at 11 pm and the only room they got is in the second floor. The room condition is very-very bad : no internet connection, smelly room & poor lighting. Avoid this floor at any cost.

Overall, with a good room selection this hotel is quite nice espesially for business traveller.

Room Tip: Anything beside the room @2nd floor

the room is adequate eventhough at sometimes the smell of cigarrets didn't wear off from the previous customers. The room is at average size, quite comfortable, the hot water sometimes goes so hot and then get so cold (unstable). I stay here in about 3 times in the past 6 months, and they manage to maintain all the good things. Specially the breakfast. Love the power breakfast here.

Room Tip: if you are not a smoker, please ask for a non smoking room, the smoking room still smells sometimes

The Menara served it's purposes well for me.
I was doing business in West Jakarta and so it worked out to be a great location.
Note: if you have not been to Jakarta before, the traffic is crazy. You need to factor in over an hour for most travels within the city.
As a result it is important that if you are there for business, you find a hotel close by to where you need to be. Otherwise much of your day will be wasted in a car.

That being said, the hotel is nice. The rooms are large and clean.
The service is good.
The breakfast is a great spread.
The beds are comfy.

I was a little disappointed with my room - esp my bathroom.
There were stains on the wall, the shower curtain was broken, the water pressure and temperature fluctuated greatly.

Overall I would consider staying here again if I was in West Jakarta, otherwise would definitely be open to other possibilities.

One of the many positive features of this hotel is its proximity to the international airport. And while traffic can still be excruciatingly slow - particularly for the final kilometer - it is still better to be located in North Jakarta than somewhere further away.

On check in I was upgraded to the Club Floor - a welcome and unexpected surprise. This meant that I had three nights in circumstances of considerable comfort. The room was spacious, well equipped and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. It came as no surprise to discover the hotel manager has several decades experience in running high quality properties around the world. His professional approach is everywhere to be seen.

The surroundings of the hotel are not especially pleasant - but the same thing can be said for all of Jakarta. There is a small cluster of shops opposite which can be reached by a pedestrian bridge and a supermarket is there which carries a good range of basic products. Major shopping malls such as Manga Dua and Taman Anggrek are only about 15 minutes away by taxi - traffic permitting - and they have every possible shop a person could require.

The Menara Peninsula is very good value for money.

Room Tip: Inquire how much the Club Floor costs. If it is not too much extra, consider paying the difference.

Checked in at the hotel and were upgraded from Superior room to Junior Suite or Superior suite ( I have forgotten ). The room is spacious and has living room. The room has 2 tv sets.

The king sized bed is big and can accommodate 3 persons.

The room has bathtub and the bathroom is considerably big.

On the next day going back to my hometown, it takes less than 30 minutes to reach the airport.

Overall, it is a good value hotel :)

I like to stay here a lot when it comes to business trip. Quite busy on weekdays, but I'm totally fine with that. The service is good, breakfast is terrific, the lift? I don't wait too long. The bed? Excellent! They also concerns about safety and privacy, that's one plus point from me also!

Room Tip: On the highest floor will be better. 21st floor is great!
