i would not say that it was unpleasant visit but it was a dissapointing one. When i was booking this hotel, I carefully compared with other hotel in Jakarta. We are Jakartans, so we expect something pleasant from a promising 5 star hotel. The room was nice and clean. We got this 2710 room with a promising Jakarta skyline view at night. Unfortunately we checked in sometime at 3pm so the view when we glanced over the windows was biased by a very dirty glass window! What an awful first impression. But I thought, let's forget and enjoy what's there. We were about to chill out with some cold drinks when we noticed that there were only 2 glasses. Didn't we book executive triple bed? i mean, triple? So, I called the receptionist. Asking them to complete all the aminities. First, they came with a towel and slippers. Second, they came with toileteries. And third, they came with glass. What a service! We went out for dinner and came back late night. I told my friends that I wanted to watch the EURO 2012 match between Spain and France. To my horror, they don't have the premium cable TV. I called the receptionist again. they said something about watching together at the lobby. oh no! I was so tired. I did not want to change my pjamas to go down to the lobby to watch with bunch of strangers. I wanted to watch it in my room. This is not a cheap hotel! Then I opened my ipad to watch it by live streaming. And you know what? There is no Wi-Fi connection in the room. Crab! I had a bad dream staying there. really! Well, at least Their breakfast was okay. Not much of Indonesian cuisine, some pastries that taste like rubber when you chewed it. But other international variation are nice. Just unexpected from a five star hotel. And for me, unacceptable.
