longstanding favorite
location, price, breakfast
I used to live in Jakarta, so am familiar with the Borobudur from way back when. Jakarta has 2-3 hotels that were at one time under one of the big international hotel management arrangements, and the Borobudur is one of those (I think it was an Intercontinental, formerly). What typically happens is that you have these big, nice businessmen's hotels in central locations that eventually drop out of the big management arrangements because they do not want to spend so much on maintenance and upgrades. But the Borobudur is still in good shape. One of its hidden strengths is that it has great sports facilities, if travellers are interested in that. Its location is more convenient for visiting government offices than the business community, because in the past 20 years much of the business community has moved 2-3 miles south into the Central Business District (and travel time is a concern in Jakarta because of traffic). Lots of decent in-hotel restaurants with reasonable prices. My favorites still for lunches in descending order are probably the Borobudur's Japanese, Italian and Chinese restaurants.

Oasis in central Jakarta
Swimming pool and garden, staff friendliness, food
I have stayed a number of times at the Borobudur. Its big attraction for me is a 50 metres swimming pool and large gardens quite near to the centre of Jakarta. It is so peaceful after dealing with Jakarta all day long.

Great location and clean room
Large room, friendly reception and location
The check in was very fast and the room is clean. The breakfast lack variety and some food is not so fresh. Anyway for short stay, this is an ideal location.

An old hotel in the heart of the city
Strategic, huge pool, nice garden
A very strategic place, when you are on business trip since the nearest to many government office building

Great resort!
Location, Safety, Cleanliness
I stayed here for two nights at the end of trip to Java and very much enjoyed the room and staff. The location is excellent; easy to access the sights and commute to/from the airport. I did not find that the food was excellent. It was of average quality but was varied and there were many options available.

Still Elegant
The location, pool, and general feeling of safety
I continued my stay at this hotel and expressed my view previously. I liked this hotel very much, although I am a stickler in room comfort. I think the linen, for example, was good but not great. The pool was immense and well maintained as well as the gym which I used frequently on my visit.

Elegant Hotel
Pool, Gym, Breakfast
This hotel exhibits many of the characteristics of a grand hotel, and therefor is one. Despite a few worn room features, I would still return, though maybe consider an upgrade from the standard accommodation. The assistance from the staff was always gracious. The club lounge small but cozy--perhaps more people would imbibe on the premises were there more reasonable incentives.
