Bi Executive Hotel Jakarta Reviews
Hidden Find Oct 20, 2011
This particular hotel surprised me mainly for its value for money. On the exterior, the hotel oozes of classiness and formality. Located in North Jakarta, it is a 5 minutes' walk to the nearest shopping mall called WTC (pronouned as WAY-TAY-SAY), and also to a train station called Stasiun Kampung Bandan, which provides direct routes to Tangerang, Serpong and Bogor.
A rather small hotel I might say, but you will be warmly welcomed by the counter staffs dressed smartly in crisp black suits. A standard room in the hotel is around SGD (Singapore Dollars) $50, which is definitely lesser for USD and it comes with 2 welcome drinks (fruit juices).
You will be guided to a BEAUTIFUL room with a HUGE mirror by one side of the wall (girls love this, hehee) and a soothing ambience music playing in the background. The standard cable TV, and spacious bathroom (no bathtub, though).
The background music in the room is centralised, so you cant switch it off (not that I ever requested for it) but trust me you'd appreciate waking up in the morning listening to sounds of soft waves and rustling of leaves. MMmmm.. simply beautiful!
Breakfast was splendid- I ordered an American club sandwich breakfast set which comes in a presentation that I couldnt help smiling about - 2 sunny-side up eggs for the eyes, 2 club sandwiches as the "ears" ,2 sausages that formed into huge smile and fries that became the "hair". A rather generous serving, and on top of that, this hotel serves some wicked coffee, unfiltered.
I dont know how they do it, but about an inch's worth of coffee powder settled at the bottom of the cup (I thought the coffee machine's filter was broken) and not wanting to appear too demanding, I sipped the coffee along with the powder, and guess what! It was meant to be that way! DELICIOUS!
Asked for a second cup, drank more coffee powder, and a third, and more coffee powder til I cant drink no more..haha.
So yeah, if you're on a budget but is also looking for a nice and way-beyond-expectation kind of hotel, this is it. Oh, but the only downfall was that WIFI connection does not reach into the rooms, but who cares! Throw back your legs in the lounge area, snuggle up some pillows whilst using the WIFI and you'd be glad you did it =)
Hope this helps!
