Spent a night in this hotel during a business trip in December 2011.
Location: There's no fast food and pub near the hotel. The nearest shopping complex was 30 minutes walking distance away. Nothing to do at night.
Room: Room was old and not well maintained. Toilet was full of yellow and black stain. The mirror was full of water stain as if no cleaning has been done by the house keeping. If the house keeping did clean, then they must have done a very lousy job. There's no WiFi in the room, only LAN cable. And the speed is annoyingly slow and not stable, about 6~10kbps. This reminds me of the 28.8kbps era. WiFi is available in lobby. The speed was faster at about 200~300kbps. However the WiFi router was switched off at about 11pm, after the live band performance ended.
Food: Had breakfast and dinner there. The food was good. Had a soft shell crab cooked in spicy herbs during dinner and that was excellent.
Value: USD76 a night. Not cheap but reasonable. Hotels in Jakarta are generally expensive. But the up keep of the hotel made me decide not to stay in this hotel again.
