Since extensively travelling in Indonesia the favehotel quickly became on of my favorite low budget accommodation in the country. Favehotel Wahid Hasyim as a great value for money hotel when business or pleasure takes you to the heart of Jakarta. It is very well located on a sidestreet perpendicular to Jalan Thamrin and a short taxi ride away from places like Plaza Indonesia, Grand Indonesia Mall and many government offices.
Like all favehotels it feel is modern and light, the rooms are equipped for guests who do not bring too much luggage with them and stay only for a few nights. It lacks storage facilities and does not have a wardrobe. Just a rail with a few hangers on it.
Bring your own toiletries and room slippers for the hotel management only provides those for an extra charge.
The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom very clean and functional. Hot water is indeed hot, something I really appreciate.
The flatscreen TV with international channels and free wifi in the room are also something I do not want to do without.
Breakfast is included and the typical buffet mix of Indonesian staples like fried rice or noodles, fruits, etc. For those who cannot bring themselves to have a warm meal for breakfast there is toast with jam, honey and chocolate spread. Good enough to start the day.
The restaurant also serves food for lunch and dinner up til which I welcomed when I arrived late in the evening to check in. It is also convenient to have a circle k mini mart right next to the entrance.
The receptionist was friendly and no nonsense. Just like the rest of the staff.
This hotel will always be an option for me in future, however, not until I have tried a few others in the same area.
