Ibis Tamarin Jakarta Reviews
Modest Price in the Heart of Jakarta Mar 17, 2010
The Ibis is a decent hotel for the money, which you can book online for about $40-$50 per night. The location is good because it is within walking distance of a lot of things, including a mall. It is also near the backpackers district. Security was a little more lax than at some of the other big hotels, but I still felt safe here.
The building is older, but well maintained. They have a nice spacious lobby, onsite restaurant, outdoor pool beside the restaurant, and a lounge. Like most hotels in Jakarta, though, the food and drinks are over-priced. We only ate once for room service and once for the breakfast. The breakfast was nothing to write home about.
As for the room, I have some complaints.
1) The adjustments for hot and cold water in the shower drove me crazy.
2) The cable TV had limited channels and the HBO didn't work half the time I was there (minor complaint since the TV wasn't used much).
3) The room was small, and with all the luggage, we felt very cramped.
4) Wireless internet was available but you had to pay for it. And even in the lobby they charged 6USD per hour.
5) There were little ants that you could barely see, but if any kind of food was left out they would find it.
Overall, I'd give this a 6.5 out of 10. Will definitely look for something different next time.

Business Hotel Jul 24, 2010
Ibis Tamarin is a mid class business hotel in the center of Jakarta. Located at the 24 hour active area, next to the backpackers' hostels area, shopping centers, nightlife, office buildings, etc, makes this area so crowded especially during office hour, the street in front of the hotel is always busy.
The hotel has the basic facilities, also has a small swimming pool, one restaurant where we had our breakfast. Our package was room only so we had to pay for our breakfast, which was just so so, nothing special. we could find better restaurants around.
The room was small, but clean and nothing to complain about. It was just okay.
The internet connection is available at the lobby and lounge but we have to pay for that. We preferred to have coffee next door with the free wi fi, enjoying the busy morning of Jakarta.
The hotel is always busy and crowded, a bit less during the weekend as it is a business hotel. We did not really spend much time or enjoy their service as there was really nothing there, went out a lot.
In general, the hotel is average, but the price we paid was a bit too high for it.
