Kristal is located far away from the center of Jakarta, so the traffic jams make it impossible to go 'down town', unfortunately. On the other hand, it is relatively quiet as well.
The Indonesian fare is good, but don't try the international buffet, at least not the Italian one. As of 18.00h the meals are simmering and cooking.
Unfortunately Kristal has moved its café to the main building. The pastries are awfully good, but the atmosphere has disappeared. Probably this removal is due to the opening of a reasonable Starbucks, 100 m down the road, but they offer less attractive cookies etc.
Spacious rooms with a kitchenette is a great advantage. We'll be back next year.
