If I were looking for absolutely nothing more than just a bed to sleep, then this is surely not the place to stay. But that was what I simply needed, just a bed. I didn't even bothered with the standard of facilities because I'm not expecting anything. If I want a cheap bed, won;t be spending time in a hotel, be in a great central location, get easy access to fun and everywhere, then City Icon is not a shabby decision.

Room Tip: There's no good room. So get over it.

The value for your money is worth the clean room in the almost central Jakarta location. I've stayed in cheaper hotels that offer a better breakfast- this one just has fried rice and black coffee.
The street is busy and has a good local feel. It is next to an indoor fruit/health store, pharmacies, and great street food stalls (from spicy noodle dishes to live cobra and snake shacks).

There are so many hotels on this street that I wished I would have stayed just one over-check out Hotel 88, Big Hotel, or Hotel California.

Oh, and I got a call from reception at 6:40 am asking if I was checking out today. Not what you want to wake up to.

Room Tip: Non of the rooms have windows, but rooms on level 3 have the least amount of sewage smell coming from the drains.

Was supposed to spend two nights here but had to leave after one night because the room smelled terrible. Only reason we stayed for one night was because our flight came in really late so we just stuck out the terrible odour and requested a new room the next day. They moved us to a new room which smelled okay for about 30 minutes and then started to smell terrible as well. They sent up a pair of housekeepers to "fix" the smell but all that entailed was spraying huge amounts of deodorizer into the washroom. We had to move to another hotel across the street. If you have a nose, do not stay here. The halls are also really really narrow and it was hard getting around with our luggage. The Internet on the upper floors also was not working.

The room was not as huge as I thought it would be. Overall, my stay was very pleasant. The staffs were very friendly, always greeting whenever they saw me. Services were very good. They helped me throughout my stay here like giving me local tips, telling me which places are good for souvenirs and how to bargain. They're very nice people. Love the stay here. Will return again one day :)

Reception was not impressive. The staff hardly spoke English but was resourceful by using an online translator.
They seemed to be renovating and painting last April. The room was quite small but clean. Towels looked new and clean, too.
One thing that I didn't like was the very narrow hallways in all floors. Our room didn't have water sprinkler in case of fire. Although door locks and security bolts were good, I did not sleep well thinking that in emergency cases, we still have to run through the hallways.

Room Tip: Rooms near the stairs might not worry you with the hallways.
