Best Western Mangga Dua Hotel and Residence Jakarta Reviews
Good Hotel close to many malls around Mangga Dua Dec 17, 2012
I booked the hotel through hotels.com website as it has special discount and I have an event to attend to at ITC Mall just opposite the hotel – 200 meter away. Location of the hotel is great for people who like shopping as the hotel is close to several big malls around Mangga Dua areas and the hotel provide free shuttle service to and from those malls on hourly basis, but you need to book with the reception in advance (example, one hour before). It seems this hotel also serve as an apartment.
When I arrive in the hotel, the bellboy is very courtly and opens the door for me, and directing to the reception. The lobby is modern, huge and very inviting, with bar, coffee shop, and restaurant for hotel guests and public. However, the receptionist takes his time to find my booking and it takes some time to fill in the form for me before he finally gives the key and take my credit card details for any room service charge, even though the hotel was prepaid. From first impression, this kind of service is not a four stars hotel, as usually when I stay at big hotel, all the booking is ready (when I booked from the website) and I don’t have to fill in any form, just sign it.
As requested, I have room on high floor on the 33 floor storey and it has good view toward the city with big dirty windows, and the shape of the room is a bit awkward and looks small as it was on the round tower (even though it was mention has a room dimension of 25sqm). The room has one big double bed, one big sofa, dresser, 32 inch flat screen television, empty refrigerator, desk and very modern but small bathroom with a glass shower. All toiletries are provided even the shoe polish and slipper. The bed is very comfortable with many big pillows for good night sleep. Free wifi in the room with fast and strong connection.
Surprisingly very quite at night time at this hotel and couldn’t hear the traffic noise from down there. Unfortunately the room and the lobby has plenty of mosquitoes and it wasn’t nice experience being bitten by those tiny insects which leave the skin feel itchy and red.
The discount price of this hotel is usd 70 per night inclusive tax and breakfast for 2 people. I found the buffet breakfast at downstairs restaurant is quite good with plenty of selection from omlette (you can ask the cook to cook the eggs they way you like it), bacon, sausages, salad, muesli, fresh fruits, traditional Indonesian breakfast such as fried rice, fried noodles, porridge, vegetables and meats are available and plenty of croissant, donuts and cakes, free refill of tea or coffee and orange juice and 3 other juices serve service. The breakfast really fills me up and I still full by lunch time.
The swimming pool on the f2 floor is quite big, very nice and worth the time. It is open space and the water is cool on the hot and humid weather in Jakarta. It is free for hotel guest to use and you can ask the towel from the pool attendance. Overall, it was a nice stay and I did use their free shuttle bus service to the malls and it was very convenient.
