We stayed here for just the one night a t the start of an Intrepid Advetures trip through Java and Bali. One night was enough for reasons that were not totally the fault of the hotel.
To be fair, it's a perfectly decent hotel without exactly setting the world alight. Its pretty 'middle-of-the-road', nothing special, but certainly not a bad joint and certainly not somewhere I would warn travellers away from.
One if the main problems is its location, most decidedly underwhelming. Jakarta has many 'centres' and this purports to be in one of them, but I have to say, the area around the hotel was horrible. And boring. Eating out options are pretty poor, as are drinking.... but in fairness again, we were there during Ramadan!
The rooms are okay, clean enough but again,. nothing to write homer about. To be honest, the whole place was so samey that even after a week I couldn't remember much detail about it except what I wrote in my journal - which I raided to write this!
The staff were great though, really friendly. The breakfast was adequate, the wifi was geologically slow.
So stay in the Paragon by all means and have no worries about it. Just don't stay too long, you;''ll be pretty bored. We were not fans of Jakarta at all!More
