Stayed at Ibis Arcadia recently. The hotel is well positioned within Central Jakarta where it is about 5 mins walk to Sharinah Bus Stop (for Transjakarta Busway) and about 15 mins walk to Hotel Indonesia Traffic Circle (for Grand Indonesia Shopping Town). There was a local branch of Bersih Sehat next door which gave good value massage in a clean and healthy setting. This was a safe neighbourhood which I had absolutely no issues walking around.
I was given room 403 that had a street view. It was a bit noisy given that drivers tend to sound their honks quite frequently. My bed was comfortable and the room was quite spacious. Bath was quite small but I appreciate the powerful shower with good water temperature. Complimentary bottled waters were provided for my convenience.
There was one night when there was a power trip in my room and the technician arrived within 5 mins to resolve the problem. I noticed the air-conditioning took a while to cool down the room every time when I came back to my room. But it was ok after that.
I opted for the USD 5 buffet breakfast one morning and while the spread wasn't fantastic, it met my needs. Coffee was grounded from the machine and there was even an egg station. The staffs appeared quite attentive.
Given the good price that I paid, I found that Ibis met my needs. I wasn't expecting a luxurious experience. The traffic in Jakarta was very bad so I relied on Transjakarta buses, the commuter trains and of course my legs for most of my commute. I found some of the Bluebird drivers to be dishonest for my trip to & from the airport. This was a shame really! I would recommend if visitors could arrange an airport transfer directly with the hotel if you can for USD 16.
