The hotel has an exceedingly poor approach to an essential service. Deserves avoiding until free wifi is provided.
I was astounded and shocked to be told that internet is only through cables in the room (are laptops still made with cable connectors any more?), at a charge of US15 per day. Wifi in the lobby lobby, also at a charge of US15 per day. This is the sixth hotel I've stayed at in Jakarta, and all provide free open internet service.
I suspect this reflects the general management approach - every move one makes is logged as a transaction. The room fridge is locked until a credit card deposit is paid. One signs a bill before entering the breakfast. room, etc., etc. It's really not relaxing at all.
