I have to wait for room to be ready even though I arrived after 2 pm. Reception have some problem to check my reservation as my booking name was changed to Kayswee Tan. Expedia should NOT move my surname to the back.
Overall, the hotel is a great buy for the price. The staff, the room, the bed, cafe and everything else was really nice. It's a shame that i checked in at 11PM and had to run out in the morning the following day. Never got to explore the neighborhood, but the hotel info says that it's very close to shopping centers and all.
"Good location and great cost benefit performance"
I stayed in this hotel only for one night. I booked a standard room, but the staff gave me and my two colleagues an upgrade for one of the best rooms. The room was big as well as the bathroom, very clean. Less than 40 minutes by taxi from the airport and less than 30 minutes for other business areas.

"One of my best best travel experiences... Really can't wait to be that pampered...."
The hotel itself is no less than a 5 star hotel.. Having been to Jakarta several times I was a little uneasy about the neighborhood. Cleverly enough the front office manager felt my unease especially that I arrived 9am and the room was not ready. In no time he comforted me and found me a great great great room and I really mean great. I am used to staying in 5 tar hotels and was a little reluctant about best western. But let me tell you ,if this is what best western is about then it wil always be Best Western. The free shuttle to all surrounding areas is great, clean and punctual for drop off and pick up. It is a really personalised service to each client.. I do advise everyone to visit.. You will never regret it.

Location is great in China town area where you can get lots of food nearby (walking distance). Rooms are a bit old but big and clean. Shower/Washroom is also big with good water pressure. May not be a high end hotel but for my travel needs, this hotel meets everything that I want. Food is pretty decent in the cafe for breakfast, have not tried the others like the chinese restaurant.
