      Colonial and retro hotel palace feel”
      We felt like renaissance elite. This hotel has it all to take you down in history. Large ballroom and everything. We paid a promo price and for that we got a very luxerious tay, al though it seemed abandoned at times, large spooky hallways, which was actually kind of fun. Rooms are very luxerious. Go to this hotel for the historic feel, don't expect an actual four star hotel, expect an experiance. For us the only place possible to stay in Jakarta Kota

      Next to train station, Old Town, near airport”
      Honestly, it's a hotel. It's not 4 stars--those days seem long past--but as a hotel, it's very functional. The bath was a nice option, while the room itself was clean, with a mini-fridge. It's an ornate building on the whole, and I would recommend it. The neighborhood puts it next to the terminal train and bus stops, so transport is easy (or just use Uber) and the OId Town area is pleasant.

      What the Heck.”
      This hotel was one of the iconic land marks of Jakarta. I had previously stayed at the hotel some 6 years back. Not sure why the Name Change. Even the taxi drivers say they dont know where it is. Use to be the BATAVIA HOTEL. New owners and management have let this place go down the canal. In one word look at another hotel before you considered staying here. Staff with limited etiquette, breakfast so poor I choose to just have some fruit, room old and tatty. Sorry as a frequent visitor to Jakarta will not stay here again.

      The best part of this stay is the location. Just a couple of work to most part of the old quarter in Jakarta. The price is right but the room needs to be updated and renovated.

      Why the Name Change.”
      This hotel has for sure seen better days. Had stayed here few years back when it was the Batavia hotel and service was first class. A name Change perhaps ownership change has seen the lights go out on a truly beautiful hotel. Its Charm, magnificence and historic values have been overshadowed by neglected incompitanc and poor management.

      All the staff are participating in destroying this GREAT hotel. It is a well organised plan. Everybody of the staff is trying to give a very bad image and a very bad reputation of this nice great hotel by harassing the customers or not attending to them. The previous manager told me they don't have safe deposit box stating that this is the only hotel in the world without such facility and it is very bad.He was trying to tell me why I booked this hotel.But next morning I was assigned with as safe deposit box which was just behind the reception, by the morning shift manager. The management is playing ALL the tricks to make the customers leave the hotel. They keep telephones ringing and not attended to the calls at all,they intentionally not making the rooms. They intentionally not cleaning corridors and other places. They are showing their unhappiness and dissatisfaction wit

      Good location. A lottery with the staff and ability to understand English. Roomsall seem to have adjoining door so you can hear everything from your neighbour, from the quietist conversation to the loudest moan. In need of refurbishment about 30 years ago. Great potential.

      The hotel isalmost half closed”
      I usually dont gove negative only reviews to hotels, because every hotel generally have somethign positive to talk about but here -none seriously.. okay.. one thing.. hotel is big building..rather big remains of a building. - I arrived on new year eve. Roads to hotel were closed.So i had to walk 1 kms to reach hotel. No problem, as i understand on new year eve certain roads can be closed to control the crowed. What I didn't understand that when I asked their staff to talk to my Indonesian friend and guide about the location of hotel.Pretty standard, right? but they asked me to talk to one person after another and ultimately, i had to whatsapp the local GPS location to my friend.Nobody cares to entertain the guests. - Hotel room is big, but its more of a hassle. Lighting is not sufficient. Bedding okay. but toilets not good.Towels given were worn off smelly. Room AC was gushing out dirt in the room which i asked the helper to clean, and he did. - No tea/coffee, hotel manual or service catalog in the room. No sign on the phone to call reception, room service etc. - NO EMERGENCY EXIT ROUTES DEFINED. I had to really struggle to get out of the hotel as there are no exit routes marked. Its such an old building the fire could have broken out anytime.. and no exit marked? are they playing with our lives? Half of the rooms are closed for renovation. Agoda - How are you even listing this hotel on your site.. don't you have any reputation to maintain? - Swimming pool is not maintained.. offcourse.. because that area is undergoing renovation.. you can see the poolside bar's remaining plywood and dirty structure.. maybe at one point it was functional.. -- I can simply go on writing on and on .. but if you want to book this hotel even after reading thins much.. nothing would make a difference.. Its your choice.. i checked out the next day.
