This boutique hotel is approximately 6 floors. I stayed on the 6th floor, room 618. This is the best room I believe. The room faces the street, so the mosque noises in the middle of the morning (typical throughout all of Jakarta) were not heard. The room was not the largest room, but certainly not as small as the rooms in Singapore or other countries. I did not feel cramped as others have suggested. The television played shows from various countries. The internet always worked and was quick. The internet is free in the room, as well as free wireless in the lobby or lobby restaurant. The room came with free breakfast. Usually, breakfast consisted of an egg station (fried, scrambled etc.), cereal, toast, and 3 hot items (rice, noodles, and potatoes). It was a large amount of food and we enjoyed the meal. The taxi stand is right out front so you can always get a bluebird taxi (preferred by foreigners). Although on a side street, the hotel is walking distance to plaza indonesia or grand indonesia (two very large malls with lots of restaurants like Sushi Tei, Kitchenette, Cork&Screw and shops). There is also a good money changer on the first floor of the department store on the corner of wahid hasyim and thamrin, as well as a Bakmi GM (cheap yet good noodle/rice shop-approx. $3). There is a spa next door that, while expensive for Indonesia $30, is pretty well priced for other countries. The spa is lovely. After a long international flight, you do have to wait for your room as you cannot check into your room until about noon if the room is available early. However, they did offer to watch your bags and place them in a back room. The staff makes efforts to speak English, which I appreciated. There is no closet in the room, just a pole with the ability to hang about 6 items of clothing. Otherwise, everything must stay in the luggage. We paid about $50 a night. We thought the hotel was clean and well situated. We would return to the hotel and recommend it.
