Gran Mahakam Blok M Jakarta”

Nice clean and very friendly. Excellent rooms.
Not really near to city center.

The Gran Mahakam is a nice clean and very friendly hotel situated in south Jakarta. It is conveniently situated close (very) To Blok M Plaza, but to be honest the Blok M Plaza is one of the smaller Plaza in Jakarta, it really does not have much to offer, the larger Plazas are in Central Jakarta, quite a trip away. If you like nightlife, bars etc, then the Blok M nightlife is a few minutes away in a taxi (maybe 15,000 rupiah). And they get very busy with plenty to do at weekends, they are open during the week but much quieter. The hotel buffet breakfast is very good, but mostly not included in the price of the rooms. The only downside really for me is Internet, although available i thought it was very expensive for what it was at some 60,000 + per hour! Overall happy with hotel and would and have use it again.

Excellent Value”

Very nice location (near some nightlife and a mall), but at the same time on a sidestreet so it was still quiet. Place was very clean, very professionally run.
Lacks some facilities, rooms and bathrooms were small. Broadband was a tad slow. Not many dining options within the hotel itself.

Gran Mahakam was the best value for money hotel I've stayed at in Jakarta. It's run by the Sofitel group, so minimum standards are assured. However, the professionalism of the staff, cleanliness of the place, and just how "well run" it was surpassed my expectations. The biggest selling point of this hotel is it's proximity to Blok M and some other malls. Within the hotel, the rooms were basically spotless and very clean (although the age does show sometimes). Broadband was a tad slow compared to other hotels I've stayed at, but if all you're doing is email and light surfing, it shouldn't be an issue. The rooms were also smaller than usual, and the bathroom itself didn't have space for a separate shower stall. Still, it was of a reasonable size. Definitely staying in Gran Mahakan again my next visit.

Nice new hotel, a little pricey”

great breakfast, convenient to Blok M

The Gran Mahakam is in a fairly quiet side street West of Blok M and the Blok M Plaza, making it very convenient for anyone with business in that part of town. The shops and restaurants of Blok M Plaza are an easy walk. The hotel is new and well equipped; the rooms have elegant high ceilings. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with a wide range of dishes (Indonesian, Japanese, Chinese, Western) that varied from day to day, but it was a bit on the pricey side for Jakarta -- about USD$20. The internet charges were steep, too: also about $20 per day. All in all a superior mid-range hotel that cost a little more than it should have.

good location for south Jakarta hotel”

I used to live in Jakarta, met people often at the Gran Mahakam, but just stayed there for the first time in conjunction with a Depok event. It is a good hotel, which I would recommend for anyone who needs lodgings in South Jakarta (traffic is an issue in Jakarta, so you stay close to wherever you have meetings, etc.). It is in the Blok M-Kebayoran Baru neighborhood but still relatively close to the CBD and quasi-govt like the ASEAN Secretariat. Since KB is traditionally a residential and shopping district, beyond business visitors traditionally you might see a few expat families there for 2-3 weeks while house-hunting, plus there are NGOs in the neighborhood who also put people up there. Bfst buffet was fine, but it was harder than it should have been to get a cup of coffee. Recommend it none the less, comparable otherwise to something like an ordinary Sheraton.

South Jakarta choice for business, plus”

I used to live in Jakarta and still come back several times a year. If you need to be somewhere in South Jakarta all the way down to Depok, I recommend this place in Blok M. The larger (and more expensive) business hotels on Sudirman, Thamrin or in Kabayoran Baru are nice, but probably cost twice as much or more. I would describe the Gran Mahakam as more a boutique hotel, but I think it is up to international standards even if it does not have Hyatt, Mandarin, Four Seasons, etc. in the name. Very helpful staff, good breakfast. Traffic and travel time are issues in Jakarta, however, so I would recommend it as a good choice if you need to move around in South Jakarta. But maybe with the coming of the subway (MRT just opened, have not tried it yet myself) you could also use it for meetings further uptown.

Top Hotel”

Very Upmarket, Very Clean Very Nice
Nothing that comes to mind

The Gran Mahakam Hotel is Located in South Jakarta close to the Famous Blok M Shopping centers, it is a very upmarket Hotel with all that you would expect of such a Hotel, the rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. The staff are extremely curteous and friendly at all times. If you need to go anywhere in Jakarta just ask reception to call you a taxi (Bluebird are normal and good price and service) Within minutes a BlueBird Taxi will turn up at the front door and take you for a very small price to anywhere in Jakarta, they mostly have a little bit of English and are very traveller friendly. In room dining is very good and available 24 hours a day as well.

Weekend trip to Jakarta”

Good value for money, excellent location.
Bathroom rather small.

My wife and our two friends stay in Gran Mahakam Hotel during our weekend trip to Jakarta last weekend. Gran Mahakam is located next to Block M and Pasaraya which forms and excellent starting point for both night life and shopping. The hotel is neat and clean, the staff nice and friendly and we will stay here again another time. We have a house in Jakarta, but this is outside the city center, and we tend to stay in a hotel if the purpose of our trip is shopping and party.

intl standard boutique business hotel mid to South Jakarta”

I used to live in Jakarta, and would call the Gran Mahakam a boutique business hotel on the south side of Jakarta. It is close enough to the Central Business District to stay there, but too far really from the Government ministries centered around Monas if you have dealings there. My only criticism of it as business hotel is that, oddly enough, they do not have the standard business channels on cable to watch at 3am (bloomberg, CNBC, or Fox business). But the breakfast is good, as are the facilities, and the staff is attentive. As example, when I left I had already checked out but then on the way to the taxi the minibar checker called in that I had left an adapter and USB cord in the room, which I then recovered. I would no longer have those after exiting most business hotels, so I suggest staying at the GM and watching bloomberg on your internet device of choice. There are also fine south Jakarta b-hotels nearby like the Darmawangsa, but they are 2-3 times as expensive as GM.

We stayed in Gran Mahakam for 10 days. Its a wonderful hotel. Very clean and neat. Very prompt in service and atmosphere. Very professional and courteous staff who will go an extra mile to help. Nice location to all the facilities...Block M is just a min away and Pondak Indah is jut 10 min even in heavy traffic. Very safe place. The pool is small but very nice and clean. Great sauna too.

Lovely Property with Classic European Feel”

Stepping into the Gran Mahakam hotel surely feels like stepping into a classic French or English hotel. The decor feels very European with grand staircases and wonderful balconies perching over the reception area. And just like typical European hotels, the room that we had were unusually small for a five star hotel in Asia, although we did know this prior to booking thanks to the information provided by Agoda. But be there as it may, the room were cozy, with a wonderful bed that was throughly enjoyable. We didn't get to enjoy much of the facilities, we tried going to the swimming pool, but due to the fact that it was tiny (it's an understatement, I've seen Jacuzzis bigger than that pool), and that it was a very crowded stay (new year's eve), we didn't get to use the pool due to overcapacity. It's worth noting however that the swimming pool overlooks a wonderful view of Jakarta skyline and I would imagine on a quiet day, would be a sublime experience.

Decent place to stay in Jakarta”

room and service, facilities, good location
extra fee for internet access, small gym

I stayed in Gran Mahakam several days in April 2010. First time in Jakarta I was quite surspised by good service in Gran Mahakam. It may be difficult to see from outside as it is hidden by big trees but inside it is very well decorated in classic 19th century stile. It reminds me Sofitel Metropol Hanoi very much. Though room was not spcacious but oveall service was good, hotel staff friendly, check in/check out quick. Quite a lot restaurants are very near to the hotel and Block M shopping mall is just 5 min walk away. There is a bank outlet right to the right from the hotel and money exchange little bit farther to the right. I believe Gran Mahakam is a good choice for both business and leisure travellers in Jakarta.
