We stayed here for 2 nights. The location of the hotel is not bad. There is a convenience store (Circle K) just opposite the hotel. 7-11's about a 5 mins walk from the hotel. There are also a couple of small malls 5-10 mins walk away. A couple of huge malls, Plaza Indonesia and Grand Indonesia, are not too far away (15-20min walk/5-10min cab ride. The hotel also provides a complimentary shuttle to Plaza Indonesia. This service is not available on Sundays). There are also a few restaurants near the hotel. Some of the restaurants are pretty good. Traffic just outside the hotel is bad though. Really bad. It was quite scary crossing the road (similar, but I hear that it's worse than places like Bangkok and Vietnam).
Room: The hotel room itself was nice. Similar to what is shown in the pictures. We stayed in the Grand Deluxe room. Very spacious. They also have decent entertainment on TV. HBO, Star Movies, Animal Planet. The bed was quite hard though. Both my husband and I did not feel very comfortable. The bathroom's decent, but there was no curtain or door between the toilet area and the shower area.
Service: Not bad. Once or twice, housekeeping did not bring up what we requested for. We decided to just get it from the front counter itself. Overall though, I have to say that the staff were helpful and smiley.
Swimming pool: Very small. You may not want to swim in the morning though. It overlooks the breakfast area.
Breakfast: Don't expect too much. The variety's not bad, but I didn't find the quality of food particularly good. We ate there only because we had paid for breakfast.
On the whole, it was a pleasant stay, although I don't think I'll stay there again because the firmness of the mattress did not agree with my back.
