I have just returned fom my second stay at the Kemang Icon. This is a charming hotel in the middle of Kemang, a trendy part of Jakarta. It's a great area to stay as there are shops and restaurants all within walking distance once you manage to cross the road full of Jakarta bikes! The doorman at the Kemang Icon comes out to help you if struggling.
The bikes can be a bit noisy at night. This is a problem with Jakarta rather than the hotel.
There is no sign at the front of the hotel as this is the style, it is more like boutique apartments, but the restaurant The Edge is clearly marked. Make sure you pick up a hotel business card with the address so taxis know how to bring you back.
The food in the restaurant is gorgeous. The choice is small and breakfast is al a carte but everything I have tried is delicious. The only disappointment is when your choice is not available that day but there is always an alternative offered.
I felt at home here and the staff all knew me by name. This is the Jakarta hotel that my company chooses to use when we travel to Jakarta and I hope they continue to do so. Swimming in the rooftop pool before breakfast is a great way to start a long day visiting the factory.
