I stayed for 3 nights for about $35/night and you could get discount if you book a room online. The receptionist was very kind. The room was quite small but the cleanliness was great and it was cleaned every day. It was great because it's facilitated with aircon in every room which is good because of the local weather. Hot water, wifi, television were available and work great!
You could find local food at next to the hotel at night and remember to ask for the price for 1 portion.
You could find 7eleven, several ATM, starbucks near the hotel.

This hotel is a really good deal for many reasons...

Location: Menteng is one of the best neighborhoods in Jakarta, is near to 2 amazing malls (Grand Indonesia and plaza Indonesia) where you can go walking and it takes 10 minutes. Around the hotel are a lot of restaurants, and for all the tastes (starbucks, italian food, asian food, sandwiches, J.CO the best donuts.. etc). There is a Starmart on the first floor working 24 hours, and across the street there is a 7/11.

Price: for the area is a good price, we paid in average us$42 at night

Service: the stuff was always helpful, and friendly, and available 24 hours

Amenities: what i appreciate is the water provide and the water dispenser. Every day when they clean the room they give you 2 bottles of water, and the dispenser has cold and hot water all the time!

Internet: is free, available 24 hours. the only problem was that at night it was really slow.

For all of this i would recommend this hotel, has everything you would need for a good price!

Formule 1 is a budget hotel, kind of like a Motel 6 equivalent. The rooms are not huge and have no windows. The decor is kind of tacky, and the toiletries are minimal (bring your own). The shower varies from weak to powerful and from hot to room temperature, but it's good enough.

But the positives of Formule 1 far outweigh the negatives, and I would gladly stay here again if I'm on a budget: The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, and they speak pretty good English. The rooms are spotlessly clean. The electricity turns off when you leave the room, but the A/C is powerful and cools off the room within 5-10 minutes of turning on. The location is great in the Menteng area, and it's never too hard to find a taxi outside. On the ground floor of the building, there's a Starbucks, a good pizza place, and a small 7-Eleven-type grocery store. Directly across the street, there's a shopping center with a J.Co (great donut shop), a Vietnamese restaurant, a Thai restaurant, and a Sate Senayan (also a good, reasonably priced, safe option).

All in all, I had a pleasant stay and the hotel was reliable.

Its already my 3rd stay in this hotel and I must say that it has never disappointed me. I asked for a room with window preferably at the top level and I was really suprised and pleased when they gave me a room which offers a panoramic view of Jakarta/Menteng from the window. Something which I didn't really expect but that was great Another delightful thing was the free wifi recently made available. For such a price, this is amazing! The hotel is really so convenient because its very close to many amenities, eating establishments and located somewhat at the heart of the city area. Do check out the new shopping mall (Menteng Central) right opposite the hotel. I also discovered that the hotel provides packed breakfast for a small fee which was not bad at all plus complimentary local newspapers upon request at the reception. To sum it up, I feel this is simply the best unbeatable value no frills hotel in Jakarta.

My friend and I had to move into cheaper accommodation as she had to sort out some personal matters in Jakarta. Jakarta is truly not a tourist friendly city, with instances of mercenary and unpleasant encounters with locals. This hotel was professionally staffed, clean though basic, it offered great value for money. The location is superb and sound proofing was good as there was a concert in the park next to it and only could hear the music on opening the window.

I stayed at Formule 1 Menteng Jakarta, very cosy yet clean and easy to go to city center. Taxi costed less than twenty thousands rupiah. At ground floor there is 24 hour convinience store that sells everything. Outside the hotel there are some good restaurants. The only negative side is the unseparated smoking and non-smoking floor.
