Stayed for 5 nights on business—an absolutely first-class experience from beginning to end. Every great thing I’ve ever loved about previous 5-star hotel experiences was present at Dharmawangsa, but with just a touch more elegance.
The check-in was smooth as clockwork. The staff were always respectful and courteous, and somehow managed to remember my name after the first day. I dined in the “Jakarta” restaurant a few times for dinner and visited the breakfast buffet too—I also ordered room service for lunch and dinner. Everything I ate was delicious.
The room itself is simply superb—luxuriously appointed, well-kept, comfortable and massive. The bath-tub must be bespoke as I’ve never seen a tub so deep. It felt less like a hotel-room and more like the guest wing of lavish old mansion.
Basically, you could tell that this hotel strives for perfection in every tiny detail. If I’m being really honest, some things were not perfect e.g. one room-service order was mixed-up a little, and there was some confusion when I booked a car. But these tiny blips were handled so graciously and thoughtfully—I could tell the staff was more upset about these errors than I! The next evening when I ordered room-service the butler said “I can assure you sir, we will get your order right tonight”. And that is the sign of a truly great hotel, wholly dedicated to delighting the guest.
I hope to return.
