“Friendly & Clean”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

I ended up here on a business trip and occupied a little junior suite on the top floor of the main building.

The hotel decor is cheerful and minimal, it can be compared to Travel Lodge in the UK and Motel One in Germany. Everything was fairly news, spotlessly clean and the service very friendly. They even remembered my name by the second day.

The bedroom of my suite had no window and the window in the sitting room could not be opened. The air-condition unit can only be switched on when one is in the room, which is environmentally friendly I think and the room cooled down fairly quickly.
The bed was king size and very comfortable.

Great pressing and washing service!!

The food, like others have mentioned, was nothing special but perfectly edible.

Checked into Pomelotel for a 2 night stay in mid Sept 2013 and have no regrets at all. Especially if you are not the type who likes the glitter of the city yet want to stay close by.
The outdoor ambience is great with a lot of greenery at the door step. (a plus point for this hotel) If you need some essentials, a 'Hero' supermarket is like a 10 minute walk along Jalan Gatot Subroto. Variety of food is not overly great and have a decent selection for a hotel ofr this class. Staff needless to say as every where else in Indonesia are very helpful and cheerful. I loved the quietness around this hotel.

Room Tip: Any room will be good at this hotel. Always ask for a non smoking room.

I chose Pomelotel for its proximity to my friend's house, rather than convenience for sightseeing locations. As a result I spent an awful lot of time stuck in either a taxi or tuktuk in traffic jams, trying to get to a different part of Jakarta (the city isn't very good for pedestrians, unfortunately)

That said, the hotel was perfectly comfortable to stay at. The room, which was in a separate building from reception and restaurant, was clean, quiet, modern and secure, and had a spacious ensuite bathroom with a good shower. Two bottles of water were left in the room, which were replaced every day when the room was cleaned.

The quality of breakfast wasn't amazing (juice tasted like cordial, cereal tasted odd etc), but because it was a buffet, there was plenty of it. I helped myself to a lot of fruit salad and some congee.

Staff were always friendly and helpful, although they were overly cautious in estimating how long it would take to get to the airport by taxi - they suggested it would take three hours on a Friday morning, but actually traffic was clear all the way, and it only took one hour. Another customer took the taxi I'd booked, but the hotel were able to get me another taxi quickly because there is a Bluebird taxi stand outside the hotel.

Pomelotel cost more than I expected to pay (about £44 a night through Agoda) for a room in southeast Asia, but this seemed fairly competitive with what was available at the time near that part of Jakarta, and despite the cost and location, I would consider staying there again.

i stayed at this hotel for one night at the rate $70 a nite. it is a brand new hotel so everything still looks fresh and clean. the hotel gave us two breakfast which to be honest wasnt great since the variety not much and the taste of the food not so freshly cooked. however the hotel provides you with good amenities, two mineral bottled water, two bath towels and two toothbrushes. it is free wifi in the lobby and in the room, and the room has windows to the street. both of the room and the bathrooms are spacious and the location of the hotel near kuningan cbd make it more perfect. the hotel give you validated parking yet you still have to pay 10k rupiah on the way out, and the parking apace is ample. i think pretty nice hotel and defintely i will come back again

I have just spent 3 nights at this Hotel and feel I have to write a few words.

I am an experinced business traveller and foodie.

If your wishes are for a 5 star Glitz Palice that takes you to the cleaners with totaly insincere welcomes and bowing and scraping with false smiles especially when you pay this may not be for you.

HOWEVER if a really well run family hotel suits , this hotel is for you.

A real warm welcome, rooms that are of a high end Comfort Inn type standard but better, very clean, lovely walk in shower, great beds and in this city what is so important, an ability to have peace and quiet , are a few issues that are important to me, maybe to you also ??

I have nothing to do with the owners or managers and was reccomended to Pomelotel by a business contact " In the Know"

Yes the food is simple the menu a little short, but I really enjoyed every meal, do not expect Western cuisine top to bottom of the menu but if you enjoy Asian food of a High Standard this also will suit you, just ask the locals, they flock here !!!

the hotel does not have a beauty parlour, it does not have a flower stall in the entrance, but who wants that anyway ???

This hotel was first class for my location needs, if however you desire to be in the real hub ub of Jakarta think carefuly as a 2 mile taxi trip can take an hour !!! The location is very close to most Embassy's

Given I paid only Rp512K including taxes and two buffet breafasts, this place is a bloody bargain

It opened in 2012 so everything is clean and new, and the decor is pleasing with a green / bamboo / fresh kind of look, including corridors

The staff are fantastic, always smiling and willing to help, even the bell boys and long-suffering breakfast waiters

Overall it is an IBIS kind of experience, with clean and no-frills being the operative word

The rooms are pretty ok, with a real mattress which was comfy enough, not lumpy or hard as per the usual Asian-made crash-mats. TV is a wall mounted flat screen with internation channels, pleasant teak wood decor with a tiled floor. Door entry is a new proximity system, so can't fool the power system by putting my starbucks card in the slot. Wardrobe is open with no doors due to the compact budget style all-in-one unit, so staying here for a while you may get dusty clothes. Free 2 water bottles

Bathroom has a peepshow window with shade, again clean and new. Shower is fine. Couple of annoying things, no soap dish, no shower curtain. Towels are a bit musty

In fact, overall the rooms didn't smell too fresh, like someones bedroom in the morning. My colleague said they were fine, not sure if this is a wider thing, but some better use of fragrant detergent for cleaning and linen / towels is needed

Back to the property; the breakfast joint is standard fare, with cooked sausages etc for westerners, congee for the Asians, and toast, fruit etc. As decent as a 3-4 star hotel

The location itself is a problem, right off the major thoroughfar Jendral Gatot Subroto. Nothing much on this highway, with a small shopping centre (Hero supermarket, Guardian, some cafes) about 8mins walk away. Nothing here for tourists. The hotel itself is down a small side-road, with a 5 mins walk past a bit of forest next to an ugly creek. Its dark at night, not for the ladies, and the road doesn't have a proper footpath and gets wet/dirty

Overall, it was close to where I needed to go on business, so I was more than satisfied, hence 4 was my rating. Tourists should think hard before staying here
