Sheraton Media Hotel And Towers Jakarta Reviews
Affordable Luxury in Jakarta Jan 11, 2013
Good hotels in Jakarta are quite cheap so we decided to stay somewhere really nice for a few nights after 'roughing' it in guesthouses and hostels for the previous few weeks.
This is a 5 star hotel in Jakarta and we only paid 60 AUD per night to stay in this beautiful hotel. It was previously the Sheraton and it is still known as the Sheraton to taxi drivers however it is now named just 'The Media Hotel and Towers'.
The hotel is located on the northern side of Jakarta, however taxis are so cheap and Jakarta is so big that it would be hard to get the 'perfect' location. There is a big shopping centre and chinese food court within walking distance, however the main sights in the city are a few km's south. Don't both taking the motor taxi's unless you're going a very short distance as they cost even more than taxis and are really just a way to rip off unsuspecting tourists.
We stayed in a standard room which was well appointed with a very comfortable king size bed, tv, wifi, beautiful bathroom with big shower and plenty of hot water with great pressure too.
Included in the price was buffet breakfast. There was great choice at the breakfast, plenty of options including american style, continental, cooked and standard indonesian style.
The hotel has a beautiful pool, restaurant and bar as well as a spa. Unfortunately we didn't get to use the pool as it was closed for a wedding reception whilst we were there.

Sheraton Media Hotel & Towers is a deluxe business hotel close to north Jakarta's must-sees, including Mangga Dua Shopping Complex – the largest retail shop in south east Asia, Ancol Jakarta Bay City and Dunia Fantasi (Fantasy World). (taken from web-site)
I stayed in a large and very clean room, good bed and very nice bathroom area, with five-star comfort.
* Writing Desk
* Cable Channels + central dvd system
* In-Room Electronic Safe
* Free Daily Newspaper (Local)
* Bathroom Telephone( i'v fallen and i can't get up phone :)
* Coffee and Tea Maker
I also enjoyed my time relaxing at their spa as a complimentary facility for guests. It was a great place, they also have an outdoor pool, bars with billiards, lounge and restaurants, very good breakfast and friendly staff!
I love it here and it's affordable, not expensive for a five star hotel!
I am keeping this simple, because simply put this place was AWESOME, see the pics, "THE ACROPOLIS" spa area was the best. There were many great things, from the room guy (mas yudi) giving us a great show on making the bed to the great people during breakfast like mbak Ageng , it was just a very enjoyable experience all around!
BTW = I give my ratings based on what I expected for the price I paid.
Expensive rating of 4 = in comparison to other Indo hotels, but
about 1/4 the price of what a place like this would cost in
