Solo traveler, stayed here for 4 nights. This is my fourth trip to Indonesia and third time staying in Jakarta. Room is small and basic, but clean and comfortable. Great for solo travelers or couples seeking affordable accommodations. Got a great deal on Travelocitty for around 40USD/night, so was extremely pleased with it!
Room available for ironing on the 4th floor is a convenient touch.
Nice looking pool
Blue Bird taxis available 24 hrs/day
Quick check in/out
Lots of food stalls right in front of hotel if you want to save $$$ on food/drinks
You'll have to rely on taxis since it is not adjacent to any Transjakarta lines. Many locations, like shopping centers, located cheap cab ride away ($5-10 USD)
I stayed in the hotel on a business trip for three days and was out most of the day. Staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms are clean. Internet is fast and available also by cable in all rooms. Check in and check out was fast for me. The only issue I had, that I could not open windows. Even though it is very hot outside, I prefer to get some outside air instead of AC.
Just as the title states I was surprised at the layout of this hotel. For a three star hotel it's fantastic. The service in the restaurant is closer to a 5 star. Always attentive and willing to serve you. The buffett food was great as they had a mixture of Indonesian food with a few western creature comforts. Nice patio to eat and enjoy a cocktail or two with family and friends. I wish I was staying longer, I will most certainly be back to Ibis Slipi next time we come back. Thank you Slipi for making my trip enjoyable!!!!!!! Rooms are tad small, upgrade to a deluxe if you can!
