I had booked a junior suite in the Sparks for two nights, and it is
well located in the chinese district of Jakarta.
I came with my girlfriend. The room are quite clean and well
designed even if we found some blonde hair on a pillow.
The first estonishing detail we saw was a complete
set of flavored condoms and a tube of librificant on the night
table, what was not exactly what we expected according to the
hotel web site.
The staff is very nice and the service is Ok, and the food is good.
On the first night, we went to the hotel bar to have a drink. There
was a concert with a local band, which was soonly replaced
by four stripper performing pole dancing and simulating sexual
intercourse. A moment after, two of them went in the bar offering
to touch them for the price of a shot. And although I was with my
girl friend, I have been proposed a threesome by one of them for
$30. This was not what we expected so we decided to go to bed,
which then revealed not to be a good idea : even after 18 hour
flight and a jet lag (arriving directly from Europe), and although
our room was on the 5th floor, the music was so loud that there
was no way to sleep. Even with earplugs, the vibration of the
music propagated in the bed, and we had to wait for the bar
closing at around 4AM to be able to fall asleep.
This is my worst experience ever in an hotel, and the second
night was similar (except we didn't go to the bar...).
So go there at your own risk : try the room in the upper level
(there are eight floors but I doubt they are less noisy), or go their
to fetch a cheap hooker in the hotel bar...
