My wife suggested that we stay here while visiting her family in Indonesia. This was one of the better places that I've stayed at in Jakarta. The staff and facilities were outstanding. I really enjoyed the grounds since I am a runner. Having a 700m track to run on outside was great. They also have a really good pool, tons of tennis courts, and even a basketball court. They had a lot of activities going on if you are interested in a more resort like experience. All of the restaurants that we tried in the hotel were great. I really appreciated the fact that they even had actual pork bacon at breakfast. That is so difficult to find in Jakarta.
"Convenient, Walking Distance - Pasar Baru, Comfort"
The hotel is a chained-hotel in Jakarta and it is also walking distance to Pasar Baru. There is a mart attached to the hotel where you can find everything there ie. Toiletries, Food, and etc. This hotel is located at a main road thus it is easy to find. Staffs are friendly and helpful, room (on the non-smoking floor) was very clean and comfortable!
I got a good rate for this 4 star property so decided to book it. It's a large tower (upto 20 floors I think). The room was very nice. The en suite had both a bath and a separate spacious shower. The decor and cleanliness was to a high standard. The air conditioning worked well. Food was good with a good choice at breakfast time. I tried the Indian restaurant which was good. The hotel offers 24 hour room service which is always helpful!
I think some renovations were in progress whilst I was there. There are 2 outdoor swimming pools on around the 5th floor. One was out of action, but the other was available. For some reason, they consider one of them to be indoor - probably because it is covered! Water was clean and I enjoyed a swim after a hot afternoon outside.
The main lobby is very strange. A very large space with red shiny floors and black panels on the walls. Not my taste and not a very inviting our welcoming space. The reception was on an island in the middle of it! But the decor at room level was fine and the colour choices in the rooms were pleasant and neutral.
The hotel is a bit of a walk from the centre, so bear that in mind. Probably 25 to 30 minute walk.
This hotel is just great. Bed is very big. We were three persons sleeping in one bed, this is a "super king size bed".
Locations is very good, not far from Gambir station, next door to a small shopping centre, where they have good and cheap food. Breakfast is also super great, a lot of choices, and you can also order something to the cook on site.
Great value. Nice, clean, modern room. Very good and substantial breakfast included in the price of the room. Very friendly and helpful staff. After staying here I sought out Amaris hotels in other locations I was stayed, and I was never disappointed.
I used this hotel as a base for a recent visit and it was excellent. The staff were efficient and friendly, the room was clean and what I wanted, everything worked and I had a very enjoyable time.
The food downstairs in the Buzz restaurant was excellent and I did like that the evening dinner was both á la carte and buffet. The buffet option allowed you to try and mix and match the Indonesian dishes that you might not have met before, while the á la carte menu had a good choice of ‘old friends’.
The only minor drawback was that it is not in the best area of Jakarta, but this should not be a problem, if you intend to go to and return from your destinations by taxi, which is the best option anyway. They do have a taxi rank beside the hotel and a taxi will appear quickly.
Room Tip: Following the usual tip, I suggest that you ask for a higher floor and try to get the non-street side, but that said, it was not too noisy an area anyway. Usual tip, before geeting into a taxi, be very sure that you know where you are going and get the hotel staff to confirm it with the taxi driver. This is no issue for them, as they want you to have a pleasant stay.
