Picked this up through a hotel booking site, and was delighted. Good location up town, and fun feel. Well-used lounge with a mid-century modern feel, Peranakan food in the restaurant, great roof-top bar - the place has a real buzz about it. Rooms are (mostly) well thought out and good for working in. Strong wifi, plenty of sockets, proper desk with stationery supplies. Downsides? Only one lift which makes it slow at the best of time, but there isn't even a service lift so you end up sharing with all the behind-the-scenes stuff - on one occasion with the dirty laundry cart, eeuw! And the glass-walled bathrooms - call me prudish, but that left me feeling uncomfortable. Sometimes designers don't know when to stop. Overall, a good experience, and I'm happy to know that I may never have to stay in a faceless chain hotel ever again in Jakarta.
