“If you tire of the normal business hotels ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

I recently undertook a 6 week consultancy post in Jakarta and previously had stayed in one of the city centre 5 star hotels. It was fine, it could have been in Jakarta, New York, Glasgow or anywhere in the world. What is more it was about 5km from where I was working which meant a taxi/ car ride of anything between 20 minutes and 2 hours depending upon the prevailing traffic conditions. So during my recent trip I stayed at the Bidakara Hotel which is part of a small complex of shops, cafes and so on. The Bidakara is in Pancoran on the south side of Jakarta, less than 10 minutes from my work. Now the comfort was fine, the breakfast was great, the evening meals did leave a little to be desired but the best thing about the hotel was the uniformly friendly and helpful staff. Even when they were uncertain as to what I wanted the staff did their best and my 6 week stay was very easy. The hotel has a pleasant outdoor swimming pool, a small fitness suite (which very few people use) and, although the decor is rather dated and old fashioned the I soon got used to this and saw it as an advantage. So, don't stay at the Bidakara if you want world class facilities (at a world class price of course) but if you want convenience, friendliness and competence I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. And finally, every weekend the Bidakara hosts the most interesting and colourful weddings which were very good free entertainment.

I have stayed in this hotel with my family and relatives. Lobby wasn't so organized, maybe because there were some institution's activity held. the room is clean, comfort, nice, quiet, although air conditioner was too strong for us. I love all food in the restaurant, even I didn't go out for eating, very good cooking, two thumbs!!. Overall I love this hotel.. ^_^
