“fun place”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

I stayed here for several nights while my partner was on a business trip in Jakarta. I enjoyed it. By no means a full service hotel, but funky and in a lively area reasonably close to the centre of town.

Small but well-designed rooms with excellent wi-fi coverage. Compact but nice rooftop pool and tiny gym. Breakfast selection not huge but fine. No room serve thru hotel but Italian restaurant with outdoor bar on site.

The price was right too. If I were going back to Jakarta and paying out of my own pocket, I think that I would stay at the Morrissey again.

Stayed at morrisssey this weekend, and had such a pleasant time.. I wish i could live there.

Rooms are big and neat, for such an affordable price.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast spread was delightful. They have waffles eith honey, jam and chocolate syrup.

Wifi is fast, only annoying thing was you'd have to login again after every now and again.

Swimming pool is small but the cabana is very comfortable and cosy to hangout with friends.

Theres money changers, circle k, 7eleven and a few decent pubs nearby. Also quite near to grand indo mall (bluebirds will cost you less than rp10000)

Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for four nights in July 2012. My first impression was positive, the hotel radiates a hip and welcoming vibe. The lobby is full of carefully selected mid century furniture and knick knacks. Unfortunately the hotel suffers from a bit of a 'style over substance' problem common to many boutique establishments. The check in process was painful. One staff person was overwhelmed by the number of people waiting at the front desk. Once we were finally checked in we went to our room on the sixth floor. Unfortunately the room was filthy and stank of cigarette smoke. All of the surfaces were covered in a layer of dust and grime. The white brick wall was coated in white dusty powder that came off on our suitcases. Im at a bit of a loss to explain why this room was so gross, maybe it had been empty for awhile? I decided to run a couple of tissues over the surfaces in the room and ugh, they were black with schmutz.

I asked the front desk if the room could be cleaned when we went out for dinner. The response from the clerk was that the room would be cleaned in the morning. Alas. He didn't seem to understand what I was asking for.

The rest of our stay was alright. The electronic room keys died twice necessitating trips to the front desk. The pool area was quite nice on weekdays, but on the weekend it was overrun and looked like an Indonesian village, full of chain smoking adults and naked children running around, rendering the entire area unusable for relaxation. The traffic in the street below is amplified by the roof over the pool and, combined with the sound of the afternoon call to prayer, creates a cacophony that is enough to make your skin crawl.

The breakfast was adequate but on weekends there is not enough seating for all the guests. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and with a bit more training and support I'm sure they could be running a top notch hotel. The location was absolutely perfect for our needs and the room was comfortable aside from the initial dirtiness. Talk of the bath rooms being too small is overblown, the bath rooms are adequately sized for one or two peoples use.

I may stay here again because of the value and location, but be aware that the hotel doesn't quite live up to the hype. They need to put just a little more focus on training and customer experience. Don't shoot me but if they improved their customer experience a bit they could probably raise their prices and really become the exclusive property that they think they are.

Stayed here when it had its first launched as Citadines. Location wise is great as you are in the Menteng. Plenty of food options and getting around the city by Bluebird is never a problem.

I am (one of the big fans of ) MORRISSEY..
Where should I start…hmmm…
First, Morrissey is really cool..strategically located in Sabang, the center of Jakarta.. surrounded by great restaurants like Ocha and Bella (back-to-back with this hotel), Tiga Nyonya, Toko Tiga, Watobi, and so many more..Not far from Sarinah Plaza with its handicraft centers, Plaza Indonesia and other cool hang out hubs.
The room is nice…sleek and clean..IKEA-inspired studio, comfy bed tho’ it’s a bit small …and very handy kitchenette…
The pool is nice…located in the rooftop, not so big but it’s adequate..with fitness room and coffee shop next to it..
The food reminds me of home..delicious Indonesian menu…breakfast is great..with fresh waffles and omelettes ready..
The decoration is really catchy..I love all the antique collections displayed…orange scooter, radio transmitters, books, sewing machines, trunks…love it..
Check-in process is smooth and I have no complaints with the service
Starting from 700.000 Rupiah per night, I will definitely come back..

As the Harris hotel was full, my Company booked me here. Pleasantly surprised although a bit further away from the main shopping malls, that was compensated by friendly attentive staff, a nice sized clean quiet room with a kitchenette. The Japanese/Italian fusion restaurant was very good and the bed was comfortable. The put me in a twin bed room when I requested a double, but they had no doubles available so the hotel made arrangement to make the 2 twin beds into a double which worked! Well done Morrissey ;)

Room Tip: Check out the roof top pool, all rooms seem ok.

They describe themselves as being Dutch Design and having stayed there 2 full weeks I agree that the place is cool. The swimmingpool is on the roof with an excellent view over the city (as good as it gets in Jakarta), the decoration in the rooms is minimalistics but practical and done with taste. The hotel has an excellent Italian restaurant downstairs, breakfast which is included is not great but ok, service is friendly and usually very helpfull. The hotel is in a street with shops and restaurants. Price is very reasonable for the quality provided, The only negative point is the lousy noise insulation and with several mosques starting their prayers in the early morning it is not possible to sleep in
