“Comfort in the center of town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Modern hotel with large rooms and good bathrooms. We'll situated in Jakarta center. When we were there some smoke problem occurred in the corridors which the staff tried to control desperately. Bizarre. But it was solved later-on.
Excellent choice of European and Indonesian breakfasts.

Room Tip: Not on the main street. But then Jakarta is never quiet.

Hotel is located almost at the end of Jalan Jaksa, what used to be a backpakers street. Really heavy traffic in front of a hotel and it' difficult to cross the street. Rooms were old but clean, and staff was friendly and helpful. There's a nice restaurant behind a reception and a five minute walk to Jalan Jaksa bars and restaurants. A good place to stay if your expectations aren't too high.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

Old hotel, worn out furniture and carpet, smelly bathroom and sloppy maintenance. Expensive for what it offers. If you get a room above the kitchen then you'll smell all the variety of food offered there... since early morning!

Having returned from my short trip to JKT last week & stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, I would like to share my personal views with travellers who may be considering this hotel as their preferred choice.

Hotel reception is extremely friendly and transportation is easily accessible and it takes approx. 40 mins ride from Int'l Airport to hotel & vice versa. I stayed at a standard rooms with 2 single beds and toilet is well kept clean & spacious as compared to other 3 star hotels. However, one disadvantage is that the hotel breakfast isn't that appetising and the choice is quite limited.

Do take extra caution when you buy from street vendors as the main road is full of bajaj and motorcycles and I witnessed one motorcyclist who tried to snatch a chain unsuccessfully from a lady tourist who was on her alert!

Room Tip: The hotel rates for a normal standard room is desirable for short stays.

We had problems with language to sort out our booking. Staff is not well trained and they cannot speak decent English. The hotel is very old and not well maintained. Very expensive compared to what you get, a bare minimum.

We did not enjoy this hotel. Bad customer service and a room full of problems. Smelly bathroom, cold shower, worn out furniture and maintenance unable or unwilling to fix anything. Area is central but not a good neighbourhood.

Stayed here for two nights. I can't be faulted for its location, but it's interior is old and dated and in need of a major refresh. The room that I had was gloomy, the curtains didnt close properly, the lighting dismal, bathroom had a filthy shower curtain, the shower didn't direct the spray of water at you properly and the tv was an ancient relic with a flickery picture. Wifi was only available at reception. On the positive side the aircon in the room was good.
The breakfast was ok, the usual fried rice, noodle soups and chicken which was very like what you get at KFC. There was a KFC nearby! Orange juice was clearly watered down.
The hotel is located across from Jalan Jaksa area so it is close to the reasonable drinking and eating spots. Hotel Cipta is ok for a short stay in Jakarta but I didn't think it was worth €40 per night.

Stayed June 2013, traveled solo
