Stayed one night in October between flights. It is a long way from the airport if it is either raining and the traffic is bad or if it isn't raining and the traffic is bad. But then everywhere in Jakarta is a long way from the airport, unless you stay at the Sheraton there. And the traffic is always bad!
That said, courteous, helpful front desk, check-in and -out a breeze, nice large room, clean, comfortable bed, phone, TV. Everything I need in a hotel. Breakfast included was a good selection and well presented.
I didn't try the restaurant in the evening, preferring to pop across to the "Eastern Promise" pub just across the street which has a good atmosphere, live music on the weekends and live sports on a big screen TV (catering mostly to the expat contingent). They do a fine curry and I have always enjoyed my time there, although I haven't been able to review them on TripAdvisor.
The pub attached to the Grand Kemang has been almost totally empty the last three times I have been in, but i got my drinks quickly. Food was nothing to write home about, though.
Yes, I'd stay here again - it was good hotel reasonably priced and if you need one in this area, an excellent choice.
