The Morrissey certainly has a different feel about it. The entrance and reception area is fairly basic and doesn't create a very good first impression. The rooms are definitely different to most hotel rooms with a rather unusual blend of materials from the wooden floor to a white painted brick wall and a bare concrete ceiling. Sounds a bit like a warehouse but strangely, it all works to give a rather pleasant and relaxed feeling. I stayed in two rooms. The first had full width windows whereas the second had a window only extending over a third of the outside wall which gave a rather dark and enclosed feeling. Unlike a lot of hotels, everything in the room worked - the lights, the shower, the TV and the powerpoints. Everything was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. And if you want to make a small snack there are tea/coffee making facilities and a microwave. Perhaps the only frustration for me was the noise from footsteps in the room above and the frequent sound of closing doors. The breakfast is basic but adequate, The variety is not great and when there is a crowd the dishes are not replenished frequently. Another frustrating feature was the fact that the food was spread out and there was no cutlery on the table which meant that unless you are very well organised you can be walking backwards and forwards to collect the various items you need. On the 6th floor rooftop there is a pool and relaxation area which is well set up and give a good opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of Jakarta. Lastly, food. The Morrissey has a small cafe and a separately owned, adjoining Italian restaurant which has an interesting menu but don't expect truly traditional Italian food - watching the pizza making in progress is, however, entertaining. Nearby there a wide range of eateries from the traditional small bars and restaurants just around the corner to the western style fast food chains and steakhouses just a 500m down the road. Overall, the Morrissey is definitely worth considering at a reasonable price.
