A wonderful modern boutique hotel in the hip area of Kemang. Stayed for 3 nights in the Edge suite for business in July and really enjoyed it. The hotel is clean, tidy and the rooms are very spacious. The bathrooms are completely open which was fine for a solo traveller. Housekeeping are impressive seeing the small things (ie; I removed the bed cover on night 1, they saw this and didn't put it back on). Free in-room wifi was very good and easy to connect.

Pool was really pretty although no time to swim. Restaurant food was great and fair value. Sadly, the restaurant is fully smoking both inside and outside which was really surprising and not nice eating next to smokers.

Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. No issue getting taxi's from here. All in all a great stay and would reccomend for anyone looking for a modern boutique hotel with a personal touch.

I stayed here recently with my uni student daughter. I have mixed feedback, but if the areas of concern can be addressed, it will be a good option.

First, the things that are great. The staff were all fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble - there is a genuine warmth to their welcome and in our daily interactions. The room size and layout was also great. We were in Illumina on the 3rd floor, looking out over Jalan Kemang Raya. The room was very quiet (good double glazing) and lovely and light . The room (s) was very large with a good sized sitting area, a large bathroom, and a large bedroom. The roof deck is lovely especially first thing in the morning and at sunset. The rooms were equipped with a good hairdryer and an ironing board and iron.

Now the areas that could do with some improvements. The pool was under maintenance while we were there ( a disappointment on a hot Jakarta day). The restaurant was often understaffed at breakfast, even though the waitress worked, very, very hard. The menu was quite limited for meals and often many items on the (already small) menu were not available. The rooms were very dusty, could benefit from a very thorough clean and the sofas were stained and need replacing. 3 coat hangers for 2 people is not enough. These small things add up and need to be addressed to ensure guests receive good value for money.

Hopefully these issues can be addressed as we are frequent visitors to Jakarta and this style of hotel is a nice change to the large international chains.

I stayed at the Kemang Icon by Alila for 3 nights with my family. There were quite a few of us and we booked a total of 5 rooms. First, the pros.
The size of the rooms were big - which is what attracted us to the hotel to begin with. Breakfast was decent, made fresh with your order and quite tasty.
We ordered room service - spaghetti bolognese. It was surprisingly delicious.
We also had dinner at the rooftop on our last night - there was a selection of grilled meats and we tried the steak and the grilled chicken. Both also very nice and reasonably priced.
Service was excellent - always with a smile.
The location is quite good - in the heart of Kemang, near enough to some shops / starbucks / mcdonalds / nasi padang - so very convenient.

The cons:
The lift can only accommodate 4 people at one time. This was a pain when traveling with large groups.
The suite we stayed in had an open concept and so the bathroom was completely open, leaving very little privacy. This was difficult for me as i have a pre-teen son. So not recommended if you are in company of those you are shy around!
The biggest complain that i had though, was that the Wifi was unreliable and extremely frustrating. It was constantly logging us out and made going online extremely disruptive.
The restaurant only had one chef in the mornings, so when in a big group, the wait for the food was quite long.
There is no gym.
The pool was under maintenance when we went.

Room tip: Our room was on the left side of the hotel and was quite noisy.

Dear Ms. Novia Maximillian,

I recently had a job in Jakarta filming for 3 months. I wanted to stay at a boutique home away from home style accommodation.
Kemang Icon is exactly that.
Small and luxurious, and ran by a small professional team. Herman is the manager, and left a lovely gift of red wine for us on check out.

The pool over looks the busy streets of the Kemang area and when cleaned is a great way to start the day.
The jacuzzi is a great way to unwind from the Jakarta traffic.

The breakfast was always fresh and a good selection. Fresh juices were great. Along with the honey & Ginger shots.

My room felt very James Bond.
They are all different and offer unique touches.
In hindsight I wish I had spent a few weeks in each room. But I loved my vast ceiling.

It is under going renovations to give it a little face lift, and I think it will just go from strength to strength .

Ideally the top private dinning or meeting room which has amazing view of the city could be turned into a gym.
Otherwise you have to brave the traffic on foot or jump on a motorbike taxi to the local gym. Celebrity fitness.

Perfectly positioned for the local shops and restaurants and only a short walk to Kemang mall , it is a great location that helps you to live like a local.

I will recommend it to all my friends traveling in Jakarta.
And also any local folk for rooftop parties.

I'm sure I'll head back at some point.
I loved it.
