“An average hotel - definitely not a 5-star.”
Reviewed 7 September 2009

Overall: definitely not a 5-star hotel. Hotel is old in need a full refurbishment. Service doesn't meet 5-star standards.
Reception: although there were no other guests, it took 15 minutes to check-in.
Concierge: dealt several times. Arguably worst assistance one can find in a supposedly 5-star hotel. They hardly spoke English; wouldn't know where to find places of interest in Jakarta other than giving the travel brochure; and, didn't know where to find tourist information.
Rooms: stayed in the "superior" wing. Room looked old/dated (looks very much like a cheap North American motel room). Room had some unwelcome visitors (i.e., cockroaches).
Breakfast: average - nothing memorable. Service is rather laissez faire.
Spa: average.
