Overview

The Review

Jakarta buzzes around the clock, but this modernist block in the midst of the city’s kaleidoscopic melee provides a calming refuge. Guests enter the soaring, Asian art–filled marble lobby — which creates an immediate contrast with the frenetic city outside — while upstairs, contemporary furnishings and polished wood are paired with cloudlike beds and bathrooms with bathtubs built for two.

Set in old Batavia, Jakarta’s charming Dutch colonial quarter, the hotel is well situated for exploring sights like the National Museum and the Presidential Palace, though the clientele skews heavily toward business travelers who appreciate the proximity to the commercial district.

The closets made me wish I’d packed more heavily — or done some more shopping — and I found the soothing hues a welcome break from the city’s assault of color, which is visible out the floor-to-ceiling windows.

The hotel’s restaurants are worth visiting; hit the TNC café for addictive chocolate cakes and fresh fruit smoothies, and Buzz restaurant for authentic satays and rice dishes — though adventurous eaters should explore the street stalls just outside the hotel for some of Jakarta’s tastiest, and cheapest, eats. Work off the calories at the well-equipped gym, and don’t miss the sixth-floor swimming pool, which offers jaw-dropping city panoramas. By day the latter is a calm haven; at night the decibel level can rise significantly.

The Alila brand got its start in Bali, so the zen spa feels like an island oasis — and I never leave without purchasing a few favorite Alila spa products, like the avocado hair smoothie. Every treatment on the well-edited spa menu is exceptional, but book the Balinese massage for some deep, jetlag-erasing kneading.

If you need to get away from the city and smoke and you are strapped for time then this is a place for you. It’s unassuming private and warm approach ensures that you feel at home. Staff were consistent and professional. Breakfast in the Executive lounge was personable and with good variety. Our Club room was comfortable and quite with a great view of the swimming pool. If you have the chance visit this great hotel.

Hotel is good. Additional things needed.

Hotel service is good and at pleasant level. But there is no good circumstances, because restraint is few around the hotel. This may be overcome if the map on the area is at the front desk. Please prepare additional outlets around the desk for PC and others. Some are not working.

The facilities are great. I love the swimming pool. Breakfast was nice, many variety of food... There's only one thing really bothering me: some ants in the bathroom. Location was good, perfect if you want to explore night culinary around Pecenongan.

Excellent stay for the value

I was only here for a day and a half (2 nights) after a 6 hr flight getting in close to midnight. Hotel room was comfortable and clean, and the king room had a lot more room than I expected! I could sprawl out my luggage contents and my SO still had enough room to walk around :) The 24 hr room service was a huge plus after getting off of a long and late flight. We also enjoyed being able to lounge by the swimming pool.
