I used to stay in Alila Jakarta from 2010 till 2012, spending 1 to 2 weeks every month in this simple but nice hotel. It is the simplicity coupled with top notch service that kept me coming back.
+Room with wooden flooring. I hate rooms with old carpet or cold ceramic/marble tiles in many other hotels.
+Breakfast spread is good for those who like Asian/local foods. But they do provide good varieties of freshly baked bread. Egg station, coffee machine, and fruits. If you are staying in 'executive' rooms you can have breakfast in the lounge that provide some ala-carte breakfast selections. The same lounge also provide drinks and snacks at certain hours in the evening free of charge.
+room service selection is reasonably good as well.
+Shanghai Storm Restaurant at the basement level serves very nice Chinese noodles.
+very good gym at L6. And heard that the Spa/massage service at L6 is very good as well.
+very good free WiFi hotspots accessible from each room.
+Biggest plus is for the impeccable service provided, from reservation, flexible check in/out. I must admit this may have something to do with the fact that I and many of our colleagues are very frequent guests to this hotel, but nonetheless I would rate their service as the best for any similar 4 star hotels in Jakarta, better than many other 5 star hotels!! examples: flexible check in time unlike many other hotels that will cancel the booking if I didn't check in by 4-6PM, even after providing them with flight itinerary. One time I forgot to keep stack of cash, left on the bed side table without any envelope, I was so surprised to find it untouched after I got back from work in the evening while the whole room was cleaned and neatly re-arranged. Another example is the fact that I can leave my unwashed laundry, and collect, pay during my next visit.
I am a frequent guest for several other hotels in Jakarta too mainly because I couldn't get room in Alila due to peak season, but none can provide such service regardless how many times they have seen me coming.
-not many negative points I can find with this hotels, nonetheless here are some: mosquitoes in Buzz Restaurant, lobby lounge. Slightly difficult to get taxi during rush hour in the morning. Location wise it is near (10mins walk) to many restaurants in Batu Ceper, Batu Tulis, but it is not a pleasant walk due to traffic and road side parking, street vendors.
Lastly, the management has changed for sometimes now, front desk personnel come and go, I notice the tripadvisor rating has dropped, but personally I have not feel much decline in their service.
