DoubleTree Hotel Jakarta

By Nyoman →
DoubleTree by Hilton is a new 4-star hotel in Jakarta. It is the second time the Hilton group ventures in the city. The group opened its first Hilton in Jakarta in 1976, but the hotel changed its name in 2006 after the 30-year management contract had expired. It is now called the Sultan Hotel. DoubleTree will be located in Menteng, close to the CBD, close to Jalan Diponegoro with its numerous  embassies and government offices. The hotel will have 253 rooms, which makes it rather small compared to other chain hotels in the city (usually 350 and more rooms). It is aimed to be a big convention center with several meeting rooms and a business center. Food-wise, there will be a fusion-style tapas restaurant: The Vicolo.

Hotel Kristal (or Kristal Hotel) is located in South Jakarta, near the Jakarta International School. It is rather big with 328 rooms.

Morrissey Serviced Apartment Entrance Morrissey is a very trendy place. It is a long-stay hotel full of expats and executives working in the area. Everybody knows Morrissey originally for their famous Italian restaurant, Ocha & Bella with charming modern design. I like the atmosphere in the lobby of this hotel, full of old-fashion objects like a 1950's motorcycle, a Vinyl reader or an Antique typewriter. Except for the first picture, I took all the pictures myself with my cell phone for this review, sorry for the approximate quality !  1950's Sidecar Motorcycle in Morrissey's Hotel Lobby 1. The Location Morrissey Serviced Apartment is a located on Jl. Wahid Hasyim, in the Menteng area. This Hotel hosts on his ground floor the famous Ocha & Bella Restaurant , which is one of my favorite Italian restaurant in Jakarta.

Kosenda Hotel Jakarta

Kosenda Facade After being to Awan Lounge Rooftop Bar in Kosenda Hotel , I was curious about this place. Now that I read the Wall Street Journal Review, I thought that international attention on this Hotel must be a good thing and I had to try it. 1. The Location This Hotel is located on Jalan Wahid Hasyim 127, very close to Thamrin. Jalan Wahid Hasyim is a busy street for Hotels (Oria, Akmani, Ibis but also Morrissey , FaveHotel), Restaurants (my favourite being Ocha & Bella) and Bars like Beer Garden Menteng. The street is very close to Thamrin which makes it a very central location, with a close access to Bunderan HI and Sudirman. The location is thus perfect for a 2/3 days business trip in Jakarta. 2.
