I enjoy staying at Ritz properties and this was no exception. I originally wanted to stay at the location attached to the Pacific Place mall but it was sold out. This location was okay but there was nothing within walking distance so you basically walked out of the hotel and into a cab to get most places. I wasn't hugely thrilled with Jakarta. It was mostly dirty, hot and overly crowded (the traffic is truly a nightmare here). I enjoyed my room at the Ritz..really spacious, separate bathroom, nice shower, large soaking tub overlooking the city..and the restaurants were also really nice. The staff are helpful, too.
The only problem I had was that I got sick after eating dinner one night just before I was due to leave. I felt bad because the hotel had gone out of their way to make me a dish that was not on their menu so I did not tell them of the adverse effects I experienced after eating this meal (which is my fault...I should have). In any case, I thought it was food poisoning and that it would go away but when I got back to the States I ended up having to be hospitalized because I had caught a much more vile illness from the food. I guess it's par for the course for a third world country like Indonesia but I expected the food handling/quality at the Ritz to be a little better. This was probably a fluke but I can't give this hotel 5 stars as a result.
