The Grandkemang’s exterior makes a terrific first impression; the sleek modernist cubic architecture is reminiscent of Le Corbusier. Set far back from the busy street, the location gives the hotel a sense of repose. There’s not a whiff of heritage here; design throughout the hotel is cool and contemporary, enhanced by occasional fine artworks. The lobby and lounge areas are furnished in primary colors, with recessed lighting that creates a relaxed ambience.
Bed and Bath
Standard guestrooms are efficiently laid out and finished in a contemporary style, with wall coverings and throw carpets in primary colors and bold geometric designs, and paintings tasteful and interesting enough to find a place at one of Kemang’s better art galleries. The inner wall facing the bed has a console equipped with a 32-inch flat-screen TV and a fine work space with a desk phone. Bedding is soft and plump. The bathroom is small, functional and paved in marble.
Breakfast is served at Sperta, the all-day restaurant that overlooks the pool and garden. Two lounges offer a full range of cocktails, including a menu of 60 martinis, excellent for informal business meetings. The best option for unwinding over drinks and snacks is the Stanford Arms, a cozy British-style pub with a polished mahogany bar, stained glass windows and sports memorabilia.
How to Get There
Stayed only one night to have a good sleep for my drive home the next day. But at midnight the water pipe in the bathroom leaked. I called maintenance the next morning, it was fixed. Wanted to have a quick nap after breakfast, but couldnt cuz kids running around wildly n screaming like the hall was their playground. The hotel should have put signage for kids n parents not to use the room hall as their playground. Play outside.
The room n bathroom are small but clean and completed with adequate amenities.
The breakfast buffet is great, but the guy tending the omelettes n pancakes was always tensed n rude. This is my impressions after several times staying in this hotel. The waffles were overcooked. The guy should have been trained for courtesy, and put more people at this section.
Recommended business hotel in Kemang area of South Jakarta.
The hotel is very nice and is in a buzzing part of Kemang with lots of restaurants etc within very easy walking distance (not that you would want to drive anywhere unless you had to). The common areas are very nice and clean and the staff are very friendly. The restaurant is lovely with a great buffet breakfast offering a wide selection and variety of food. There is a good pool and a nice gym. Neither were very busy whilst I was there.
The rooms were nice, large and clean with the amenities I would need such as working WIFI. It was my room faced into the pool area and was nice and quiet.
The Lippo mall is close by which is a nice way to spend an evening without having to get a taxi through the mad traffic.
The hotel also has taxis waiting within the grounds ready to be called upon so you just need to turn up at the desk at the front door and you will get a taxi straight away.
Security is also really good with a bag search and metal detector as you enter the hotel and the all vehicular are checked before being allowed onto the hotel grounds. In spite of this it doesn’t feel very intrusive and the guards and staff always have a smile for you.
I would recommend staying here for business travellers if your work is in South Jakarta. For our office was in the Arcadia complex near the zoo so some of the other hotels in central Jakarta weren’t very practical due to the distance and the traffic.
Have stayed here several times.
