I stayed at Hotel Grand Kemang for a workshop for several days over the Eid ul Fitri holidays.

Pros
• Free wired Internet in room, free wi-fi in lobby and restaurants
• Very nice room with refrigerator, TV with premium channels
• Very good breakfast included in room rate. Good variety
• Extraordinarily tasty food at main coffee shop/restaurant. Understand they have Australian chef. Recommend back ribs and baked salmon
• Friendly and helpful staff
• They provided 2 pm late check-out
• Don't know if plus or minus, but lots of wasted space.
• Good location with little competition in Kemang area
• Walking distance to many restaurants, Kem Chick supermarket
• Comfortable bed and pillow

Cons
• Noisy. The room next to mine was one of two rooms rented by two families, one after the other, with children running between rooms and knocking on doors.
• Many families over the holidays. Don't know about business days
• Have a function room with separate entrance but crowds often spill into lobby

Perhaps because we got a special rate over the Eid ul Fitri holidays, I felt this hotel was a very good value, especially because of the freshness and quality of the food.

I stayed here for 12 nights. The hotel is comfortable and reasonably priced. The rooms were comfortable although the linen and bath towels were sometimes still slightly grubby. My real gripe concerned the incredibly slow Internet facilities. For a hotel of this calibre catering to the business community it shoul be much quicker.

The room was small, dirty and tatty and the shower / bath covered in mould, when asked to change rooms i was told there was no other rooms available and the staff on the front desk had a real attitude problem ie there was no way they wanted to help me.
Breakfast was much the same, apart from whats your room numnber the staff seemed to do their best to ingnore you.
They decided to ask if i wanted a coffee at the end of my breakfast, like the rest of the hotel the breakfast was less than average.
I will not be staying here again

Spacious room, wide variety breakfast, spacious and clean lobby and convenient location. Only down side is that there's no wifi in the hotel/room. If there's free wifi in the hotel/room, everything would have been excellent.

A nice little hotel right in the heart of it all. Everything that you could possibly need is just a stones throw away. And in the heavy traffic of Jakarta that can only be a good thing.

This hotel must be very popular in the area among locals and foreigners, as it seemed constantly busy (and early check-in was not possible as all the rooms were occupied until the check-out time at noon). It is pretty good value for money (around US$100 per night) compared to the size of the hotel and the quality of facilities and services. I had a best available rate inclusive of free wi-fi in the room, but unfortunately the wi-fi did not offer good connection. The hotel is situated well in Kemang with a gourmet supermarket right in front. The double room where we stayed looked a little worn out with dirty carpets on the floor. While the hotel itself did not seem old, I guess this was because of its constant occupation. The breakfast was excellent with many different choices from Japanese and Indonesian to continental. The services were good. The hotel has an agreement with the golden bird (part of the bluebird group, which is the most reliable taxi company in Indonesia) to go to the airport. Due to my previous car accident in Jakarta while in taxi, I tend to use silver bird (executive taxi service). On the day I checked out, I asked them to call the silver bird, but for some reason there was a delay. The hotel informed me of the option of taking a golden bird at IDR150,000 inclusive of toll fees, which is a very good price, given the fact that it usually costs between IDR200,000-250,000 with silver bird plus toll fees. Overall, I was satisfied with the stay.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker, make sure you get a non-smoking room.

Stayed in this hotel for about a week on a business trip to Jakarta. It is in a good locality which is considered safe to walk around in the night (they told me that Jakarta is not very safe in night). Most of the expatriates stay here and so has a nice domestic feel about it. A good food court is nearby, but you do not get crab or much sea food there (mostly it is chicken). A shopping place with loud music is nearby. Check if internet is included in the tariff. Normally it is a wired plug in and not wifi. Also not broadband. Food is okay in the hotel.

Room Tip: Check for internet. And if you are from India and hence need vegetarian food, then it is tough to ge...
