“Good for staying but far from Jakarta's attractions”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Old furniture, AC not really cool, B'fast is standard, but the staff is very helpful. Nice swimming pool especially when it is rainy! You can see high buildings around. Restaurant in 5th floor is better than in Ground floor near Lobby with the view is the swimming pool.
Large room with double LED TV. They provide Jakarta newspaper (English). Blue Bird Taxi (trusted taxi) ready to take you anywhere.
Near to traditional market and small mall with some restaurants like Dunkin Donut, Pizza Hut, local restaurants. Near to bus station (Transjakarta busway-public transportation).
Because, it is located in the junction road and very crowded, you have to be careful to cross the big road, try to cross bellow the fly over road to go to the small 24 hours mart a cross of the hotel (for getting some good breads with drinks with good price in the late of night).

Room Tip: The room is okay face to roads, no other choices.

Dear Ms. Theresia,

Terimakasih telah memilih Menara Peninsula Hotel sebagai tempat anda dan pasangan menginap pada April lalu.
Untuk kualitas rasa dan variasi menu breakfast sedang kami tingkatkan untuk kenikmatan para tamu. Pelayanan juga lebih ditingkatkan dengan disediakannya shuttle car bagi tamu pada hari akhir pekan menuju salah satu mall besar di Jakarta Barat, yakni Mall Taman Anggrek atau Central Park.

Terimakasih atas inputnya ibu Theresia, kami senantiasa menantikan kunjungan anda berikutnya di Menara Peninsula Hotel. :)

Salam,

Excuse me for my 3 star rating but having stayed in best of best 5 star hotels in Jakarta, I could not give more than this to this hotel.

Seems like built in early 90's; many things still give that retro look. Imagine going to a spa and room smelling like old cupboard. Spa room has adjoining bath area with corners peeled out. It is so much a downturn.

Swimming pool and fitness area is good.

I had food and drinks 3 times in different restaurants in the hotel but nothing could give my stomach a jittery to return.

Breakfast menu is good but when comes to vegetarian they tried to do have a mock non-veg menu with 2 out of 4 dishes repeating every day.

Room size was pretty good and so was the bathroom. Amenities were good but I could trace some small insects in the room.

Room rate v experience is the only best match that this hotel can give you. It is opposite to a one time visit mall and other than this, you have to always take taxi to other places.

If you ask for airport pick up, the best thing is that the person will pick you up from the baggage collection area and escort you to the vehicle; all at just over USD 10 extra.

Stayed 1 night in this hotel. Situated in busy district in west Jakarta, near to the city central as well, The room was ok, and has a bathtub to enjoy. Cleanliness needs a little attention. Breakfast on Sunday morning was busy and food was empty at the buffet. Staff at the breakfast cafe was friendly but need more quick action. Overall the hotel was enjoyable.

I enjoyed my stay at this Hotel, the room was very good and quiet. I thought the amenities in this hotel were excellent. I used the gym a couple of times and the equipment was of a very good standard. The food both at breakfast and for dinner were of a high standard, in fact breakfast was one of the best I have ever had. My only criticism of this hotel was that they lock the minibar and require you to pay a substantial deposit to open it, which I thought strange.

This hotel sits at a corner of an intersection. Almost all taxi drivers know the location. It is very popular with locals and has its fair share of foreign guests. It sits almost between West and Central Jakarta. There are government offices and hospitals nearby. There is a small mall Plaza Slipi Jaya nearby which has a supermarket, fast foods and restaurants. The other nearby choice is brand new Central Park Mall which is 3km away.

The Good :

This hotel is very well maintained. The staff are friendly and approachable. The concierge tries their best to get you a taxi. They would shout, signal, gesticulate earnestly to taxi drivers which can be two intersections away. The hotel staff can manage English well to address all your needs. The breakfast spread is good. Fellow guests are polite and during the morning buffet, they do not appear to be having their last meal (rushing) like in even some 5-star hotels.


More could be achieved here :

These are just minor observations but should not take away all the good job the staff are doing.

The check-in was rather slow even though I had a booking in advance. Sometimes, your calls are not answered probably because of the high volume in the hotel. During breakfast, Whitney keeps on reminding you that she will always love you. On my fourth day, I was telling myself it could not get worse but it did! The song on that day was not sung by the original singer!.
It may be ok if you are also fine with Chicago telling you daily that you are the inspiration ...

Concierges have very good memory. They do not open your taxi door / entrance door if they remember you never tip them. I do not remember this happening in other hotels ...

Tip: Ask for a non-smoking floor if you are a non-smoker. Somehow, the default is smoking here. My room which was overlooking the intersection is good but take note that Jakarta's skyline is eternally smoggy.

Gym opens at 7am on Sundays+Public Hols (not 6am)
