We stayed in Kosenda hotel in Jan 2014 as part of our honeymoon trip. It is definitely a gem in Jakarta not only in terms of outstanding interior design but also in terms of service (which is so rare in Jakarta). Very good food, choices for vegetarians, a lot of cocktails, and generally a cool place to hang out.
We stayed in suite - could not recommend that one enough. Beautiful and exceptional design, in style of '50s, attention to details. A lot of small details in the room that we loved - e.g., nice bathrobes (not the boring white ones as in other hotels), cool desk kit and interesting books (especially for people who are into creative industries). We also received fresh fruits on arrival as well as were given vouchers to use at Kosenda's restaurant.
Someone mentioned about small size of the rooms - yes, they are not massive, however, the whole concept of the hotel will make you to forget about it. However, if you are still concerned about it, you can always go for a suite - these are much bigger, and definitely worth the money you pay.
Also, the location of the hotel is very good - it is in central part of Jakarta, close to all the attractions as well as the best malls.
Definitely recommended! Try it, even if you are not into different type of hotels - surely, you will not be disappointed. It is something really worth attention.
