What I liked best was the outstanding buffet breakfast, with dozens of delicious Indonesian items, all clearly labeled.

Business Traveller - Ambhara Hotel Jakarta ”
This was the third time I have booked accommodation at the Ambhara Hotel Jakarta. As a business person working in Indonesia I find that this hotel suits all my needs. I have stayed at other hotels in Jakarta for special occasions but for business travel I highly recommend this hotel. The hotel is located conveniently close to a large shopping centre, Pasaraya Grande which would suit all types of travellers whether business or tourist. For the nightlife it is also close to one of Jakarta’s well known destinations, Blok M. The Junior suite which I stayed in this time had internet access, mini bar and very comfortable as well as very clean, neat and tidy. Staff were very pleasant and service was excellent. I will return again to the Ambhara Hotel Jakarta whether for business or pleasure and I highly recommend this hotel to first time visitors to Jakarta because of its great location.
Unforgettable positive experience! ”
My wife and I made a really last-minute decision to visit Jakarta. With the internet being an efficient tool, we secured bookings for our flight itinerary and hotel bookings barely hours before we took off. I made the decision to choose Ambhara Hotel because of the many good reviews that the hotel had received. True enough, we were not disappointed. Upon arrival at the hotel, we were allowed to check in immediately despite the fact that it was still very early in the day. And, when we saw the room, we were certainly pleasantly surprised as it was very well furnished. Overall, the hotel was certainly well-maitained. The staff were undeniably helpful, warm and pleasant. The breakfast spread was good. We were able to travel to the Monas and Ancol easily from the hotel, using public transport as the Plaza M terminal was just across the road. We will certainly make a return visit to this hotel!
Spare time in Jakarta ”
I had a business trip planned that got delayed after my arrival. Having scheduled my stay at the Ambhara, I would not have preferred to been delayed anywhere else, in Jakarta. The staff is WONDERFUL and the value is very competitive. Most every day I had the pleasure of walking the local town and spending, more than my share of, time at the Blok M Square. I have nothing but good to speak of Ambhara Hotel. Love their staff!
The location just in front of Terminal Blok M South Jakarta, the busiest bus terminal in Jakarta, the Trans Jakarta Station is also in this place, the Pasaraya Mall also in front of this hotel, you can get variety food in that mall, the gym and swimming pool not that big but enough for morning excercise, the breakfast really nice, for the room not that big but enough convinient for business trip, easy to get taxi......good hotel for bussines trip.....recommended....
My first time”
Excellent! I can see why my parents love staying here so much. One of my favourite malls is near this hotel and the area is very safe. The best taxi's highly used and recommended in Indonesia- Blue Bird taxi's- are just outside the hotel gates so it was easy to get transport to go to Blok M Plaza mall. Though if you truly wish to try something new that you may have never tried before- try using a BaJay. They're the little motorise vehicles you will see on the streets. The older ones are orange colored whilst the blue ones are newer. If you decide to try this, take the blue. Their motors are more softer and less noisy . Don't forget to barter with the driver before you hop in. Unlike taxis, you can banter with the price when you take a BaJay or offer them a price up front and see what they say. Also a tip for those who take taxi's. Always use Blue Bird or Silver Bird. If you go through a toll road and the driver asks you to pay the fee- just tell them to use their money first and then add it to the tab on your meter rather than you taking out your wallet/purse because you can pay the final amount in the end. That's what my mother did everytime we used a taxi but she always gave a bit extra for the driver as a tip for their service which isn't recommended but it just depends on you.
Excelent hotel in great location”
This was my first stay at the Ambhara hotel and it was great. All of the people working here from front desk to house keeping were very warm and friendly. The breakfast has a very good variety of Indonesian and Western style foods and of a quality to be expected from a hotel of this standard. The hotel is idealy located with Pasar Raya mall locaed accross the street. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel and will be staying here again during my next visit to Jakarta.
Best Location For Nightlife”
I liked the hotel so much the first time I refused to stay anywhere else. The friendly staff and warm welcome back was very much appretiated. How close it is to the Blok M bars is a major plus, only walking distance. The overall condition and cleanliness is remarkable and the rooms are spacious and comfy. This hotel you are definatley getting valur for your money and I look forward to returning the next time I am in Jakarta.
review on ambhara hotel jakarta”
Jakarta is a very busy city. Since I went with my old aged parents, walking is a tedious stuff for them especially having to climb the bridge to cross the road from Ambhara hotel to block M shopping area as the traffic is very congested. Otherwise the hotel is a good choice for those who likes shopping. The room size is O.K for double but for additional bed it is a bit small. Be prepared to go early for breaskfast as the table is limited. You might end up eating outside the restaurant as I do to enjoy the view of visitors coming and going out from the hotel. The food spreads are good actually. Food suit my taste and have variation of cuisine.
Luxurious and Cozy Hotel”
I might be stayed only for a night in Ambhara Hotel, yet the experience was more than enough to put it in just mere words. Located in the south of the capital city of Indonesia, where business and pleasure melt, the Ambhara Hotel delivered me a nice and cozy atmosphere wrapped in a luxurious hotel design. With so many choices of restaurants in this Ambhara Hotel, seemed one day is not enough to discover the greatness of this hotel. With excellent rooms and refreshing swimming pool, it's only a matter of choice whether you stayed at your cozy room or have a nice workout!
Great service and great staff”
My girlfirend and I stayed here for two nights, and used it is a base for visiting Jakarta. This is definitely one of the nicer areas of Jakarta if you are going to do that. South Jakarta seems to have a cleaner atmosphere and there are more options in terms of restaurants, nightlife and shopping, which more or less sustain your stay once you're done with Jakarta's fairly limited sightseeing spots. The Hotel Ambhara is conveniently located if you want to mix up these aspects.
1st Time In Ambhara Hotel”
After searching the hotel list under Agoda, I decided to book Hotel Ambhara finally. Frankly tell you, I had no regret during my 3 nights stay there. It provided me with the expectation that I wanted. Busway and shopping centre was just walking distance away.I would strongly recommend to anyone visiting Jakarta for business or leisure.For me, I would definitely come back to stay during my next visit to jakarta.
Ambhara delivers unpreproposing relaxing comfort”
Ambhara Hotel, Jakarta is a charming hotel that invokes a bygone era of restrained comfort. It offers a relaxing environment surrounded by delightful restaurants. Its great attraction is its proximity to Pasaraya Shopping Centre and Block M - an eclectic mix that will satisfy every shoppers dream holiday. The staff of the Hotel are always courteous and nothing is too much trouble to sort out. A good four star experience.
Good Value Great Location”
this is a repeat stay at this hotel and as usual the staff were very accommodating and friendly. the hotel is clean and has good a/c and good waterpressure with plenty of hot water. location is great being close to some of the best shopping in south jakarta and is also close to blok m nightlife.
Best keept secret”
This is the third time I have stayed at the Ambhara, Twelve of stayed there on a Jakarta Golf Tour from Bali and not one complaint, this is pretty rear. All made comment of the great location and fabulas choice of breakfest,with a shopimg Mall just two minitues away, not to mention the buss terminal just over the road and the best night life in Jakarta just 3min walk from the hotel.
Again a great stay with a lovely service”
It was my second time to stay at the Ambhara and, again, I was impressed by the super-friendly staff. The clean rooms are basic but comfortable (still impressed by the comfort of the beds). Its very good value for money, the hotel is in a good location in Blok M (businesses, restaurants,shopping). Two minor negative points: (a) After some time the menu in the restaurant gets a bit boring as it NEVER changes. ALso, although there are 3 restaurants (plus a Japanese), the menu in 2 of them is identical. (b) If you happen to have the misfortune to have a room over the side entrance to the hotel, you will be exposed to a mind-boggeling "community fitness" on a Friday morning at 06:30 (!) for a full hour withj blaring loadpeakers. The event takes place on the side road and is attended by the hotel staff - quite annoying if you look forward to a good night sleep. Otherwise a very nice hotel and I shall stay there again in december and January.
This hotel is fantastic in every was. The service is fast and efficient from all the staff. Everyone is very nice and helpful. The gym facilities are good. The location is great for shopping. It is also located right on Blok M where all the western bars are for a great nightlife. The resturants are very nice with lots of variety. The is also a cafe and a sushi bar in the hotel. The room service menu was very good with plenty of variety also.
Perferct time in Jakarta”
Very good hotel Easy access to shopping center in Blok M during our stay in Jakarta. This hotel also near to airport and easy access to among famous area in Jakarta like mangga 2 and stadium senayan.
Ambhara Hotel is great hotel in Blok M Area”
Ambhara Hotel is great hotel in Blok M Area, cheap, clean n close to shooping mall dan business centre
Always A Pleasure”
Everything was great again regarding my last stay at Ambhara Hotel. However I did request a late check out upon check in for the next day (seeing I had a late plane flight) which was approved, only to find when I arrived home later that night/earlier that morning of check to find a note under the door saying that I had to be out by normal check out time due to the hotel being fully booked, which was a dag considering I had 6 hours to kill from check out time with a major hangover. Apart from that everything was fine, as always.
My new favourite place to stay in Jakarta”
I've stayed in Jakarta about a dozen times over the past ten years and stayed in quite a range of 3-5 star hotels - the Ambhara is now my all time favourite. I found it to be really well located, a nice home-away-from-home for a few days, and I've already recommended it to a friend. I just want to know how the door staff learned my name to provide me with a personal greeting - a gold star to you 'guys'.
