“Unique boutique hotel”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Although the room is relatively small, it was very nicely decorated. The use of old furnitures mixed with the modern ones was really creative. The bed was very comfortable too. Amenities were well equipped.

However, the bathroom was separated with the room only by a semi see-through glass walls. It might be quite an appealing concept to couples, but not so much when you're there with your children or mother. It's kinda awkward to take a shower when you know the person outside can kind of see you.

The breakfast buffet spread was quite limited but you can order main dish from the main menu. The Nasi Goreng is really good.

All in all the hotel was really nice, totally worth the price.

Beautiful design and really nice use of space in all parts of the hotel- this is worth seeing! The view from the rooftop bar is great, but the service could be improved (drinks weren't amazing, and service was varied).

I stayed at Kosenda hotel for one night while in Jakarta. The staff here is young and nice. They allowed me an early check-in at 11am, which was nice after a 20-hour travel. Food at the lower level restaurant was good and quick. Hotel interior is nice and artsy. My room was a bit on the small side, and bathroom is a bit small too. Location is close to the two large shopping malls (10 min walk), but the hotel itself is on a bit of a side street. Overall, I had a good stay.

Room Tip: Supposedly, upper level rooms are a bit noisy because of the rooftop bar/resto.

I loved this place. We stayed near Christmas, and the place was kitted out with really cool decorations. The staff were really helpful, breakfast was fantastic and the rooftop bar was also really convenient. The location is good if you're looking for a short walk to shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this place, it's got a good vibe, and the restaurant downstairs is also great for evening meals and coffee.

Well I really don't know where to start. I had high hopes for this place, perhaps that was the problem. Really the first rule of any hotel you stay in is that you are able to get a good nights sleep. Not so if you stay here. Your sleep will be interrupted by a number of annoying things for example constant drilling in the walls. Or maybe the traffic which was actually lower than the average traffic flow in Jakarta due to the day. Or the housekeeping barging into the room at 8am in the morning! not only once might I add. Well if this wasn't enough the food was something you should avoid at all costs. All I have to say is MSG! better to try a decent restaurant in Jakarta, of which there are many. It's unfortunate but even the parking situation is a complete mess. Misinformation was given by the reception staff and parking at Kosenda it seems is not free. In my opinion nothing is as it seems at this place.

I stayed here for 2 nights for its location, surprisingly the room was really small, and I meant really small. Cafe downstair was nice although a bit crowded, the good thing is you can go to nearby mall by short distance, but traffic made me took an hour just to reach 10km. Overall an ok hotel but overpriced.
