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.

stayed 3 nights and found the hotel lived up to my expectations. The hotel has a vibrant feel to it. The rooms are large and individually designed. Liked the added touch of having an Ipod hooked up to the surround sound system.
Bistro and bar on the rooftop was nice place top relax after fighting traffic in rush hour.
All the staff were very attentive and nothing seemed to be too much bother.
Will definitely stay there next time in Jakarta

Despite it's reputation as a fun and style area of Jakarta, Kemang is only worth staying in if you have a business reason to be there. Links with the rest of Jakarta are clogged with traffic jams. Even within Kemang one needs a taxi to go more than 300 metres, so awful are the pavements and the traffic. The Kemang Icon is a haven of quiet and style. The suites are spacious. The small bar/ restaurant is pleasant. However, the idiosyncrasies of the hotel's complex "designer" style means that it is difficult for management to deal with wear and tear and keep everything updated.

Just checking out of the Kemang Icon after 3 great days staying in the Insignis suite. This is my first trip to Jakarta and I am so glad I stayed at the Kemang Icon. The suites are beautifully appointed, staff are friendly and very attentive and the location is great if you like art galleries, fashion and design in a very interesting neighbourhood. I will miss eating breakfast on the rooftop and swimming in the incredible infinity pool which makes you feel like you're going to swim over the edge of the building. This is one of those places that actually lives up to the reviews and raves that you read on trip advisor. In my experience it is unusual to find a hotel with such style and "substance" - delivering the full package of both aesthetics and service. Highly recommended!

Spent 3 days in Jakarta with my partner, and we chose Kemang Icon based on Tripadvisor reviews and the pictures.
We had a wonderful stay. The experience was spot on from the start. Walking into the quirky boutique hotel with fascinating architecture, we were greeted by hotel staff who correctly mentioned my name. Impressive.
The suite (named Insignia) was very spacious and very well designed. We were fortunate to be shown around the other unoccupied rooms by the friendly PR manager - each suite has its distinct decor (and distinct name).
The service standards were as good as the architecture/decor. Staff were well trained and extremely help.
I would highly recommend this. The Kemang area is an up-and-coming neighbourhood with a strong focus on the arts.

I booked a room (Edge Suite) at the hotel for my wedding day. The overall design, cleaness, service and facilities were good, except 1 thing that I think was very crucial for our comfort: the air conditioning system.

There were 2 Air-cons in the room, and I don't know if both were broken or not, but overall room was not cool enough and make us uncomfortable.

Please be noted and check them regularly. Our overall impression was good, too bad the AC dissapoint...

I was given a complimentary up-grade and was rather pleased as it was not expected. The staffs were great and attentive. As this is a boutique hotel, there was no mad rush for breakfast etc and it was relaxing to stay there.

Throughly enjoyed that it was situated away from the hustle and bustle but at peak periods, the traffic fronting the hotel could be quite bad. Getting the bluebird taxi is not an issue at this hotel.

I was staying at the ICON room and had a deep bath tub which was fantastic. this is the place to stay for couples or if you're saying alone as the bathroom is an open concept. Overall a unique concept and exceptional staff!
