I stayed at Intercontinental MidPlaza in July-August, 2009. I was in a Premier Room, which has recently been renovated and upgraded. The room was wonderful, stylish, and spacious: the marble-style bathroom had a separate bath and shower; the bed was very comfortable; there was a large LCD TV in the room; working desk's layout was good with an excellent business chair. Room service was quick and good.
Swimming pool was nice, with a separate jacuzzi. The pool wasn't very long, but it was sufficient for recreational swimming. Fitness club was well-equipped and the staff there were friendly and helpful. I've also used the sauna and a steaming room, both of which are highly recommended.
The breakfast had a large spread of a variety of dishes, an omelet station, fruits and veggies. The service was once again outstanding. There is some variety from day to day, but the main spread was constant. It would take several days to try everything, as the spread is quite large. The staff were very attentive, bringing unlimited supply of a wide variety of coffee: espresso, latte, kopi tubruk (the Indonesian-style coffee; a must!).
The only complaint was that the internet connection was at an extra charge. A premier-style room should have that included. I believe they have changed this policy and the internet now comes included, but am not sure.
The location was good: taxis are readily available. Of course, you have to put up with the congestion in Jakarta, but that's not the hotel's fault. There is a smaller mall, just next to the hotel, with a variety of restaurant choices: Indonesian, Thai, Indian, Italian, Vietnamese etc. The food was excellent there as well.
All in all, a highly recommended hotel.
