Well, back to Jakarta with the well known Jakarta traffic. First time to Kristal and never expected to be an apartment hotel. Suitable for family with kids and long stays. Stayed at the third floor and was thrilled with the room size that has 2 bedrooms, too spacious for a single person. It comes with a kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a big living room as well. 2 buildings, depending on where you are located. The second building looks new to me with shops, business center in there but still ok.

Breakfast was nice with local Indonesian dishes as well as Western breakfast spread. Warm reception and staffs. Newspaper provided every morning and nice views of the surrounding. No noise from the traffic below. There's a great swimming pool below, with a bar in the middle concept. Too bad no time for a dip. There's a dining bar with live band every Wednesday and Fridays. So pop down for some chill and nice food being served there. Waitress are nice and warm just that the tabacco smell will be the only minus point for me.

There are some dining places outside the hotel just across the street with a supermarket (Hero). If you want more choices, roam there and explore. Overall, nice stay at Kristal and would be back to stay if visiting JKT again.

A great place to stay in south Jakarta, Nice big pool, my kids loved spending their time in the pool. We stayed in a 2 bedrooms apartment and we love it. The place was very clean and looked after. A big 19lt water bottle with hot and cold dispenser in the room was a excellent. A nice big fridge, an electric stove and a microwave in the room also for a quick meal. Staffs were very friendly and plenty of smiles. The food was quite good too although the service was a bit slow. We stayed on 8th floor with good view but the hallway smells of cigarette smoke.
A nice supermarket 2 minutes walk from the hotel with plenty to offer. We could use a big fruit bowl in the room as we bought a lot of tropical fruit from the supermarket. We will come back to hotel Kristal next time we go to Jakarta.

Room Tip: If you are not a smoker, ask a non smoking floor (which is only 1 floor per tower, lower floor).

This was my second time staying at Hotel Kristal.

Overall, the hotel hasn't changed much from my last visit in November 2010. The hotel is located at the southern part (selatan) of Jakarta. Hotel staff speak English well.

I stayed in the one bed-room suite. The room is spacious, and is equipped with a 5-gallon handle water bottle, so one does not to worry about the risk of running out of water. The interior is somewhat rundown, but still acceptable.

My room rate included wifi internet connection. Nevertheless, the connection speed did not give me a smooth connection to watch videos on Youtube or making Skype calls. The wifi connection in Cafe Pinang is better.

Speaking of the hotel's restaurants and pubs, Satu Lagi not only wins the applause from guests but also from local people give it thumbs up. The buffet at Cafe Pinang was also not bad. Consideration of widening the food spread is the only recommendation I have for the management.

As set out above, the hotel is located in the southern part of town, and I highly recommend this hotel to you if you are going to spend most of your time in that part of town so you don't need to worry about the traffic. I went to downtown one morning during rush hours, and it took me 1.5 hours to get there.

Generally speaking, I am quite satisfied with the hotel.

Room Tip: If you a light sleeper, please ensure you book yourself in a room which is not close to the Masjid nearby. The Masjid will broadcast prayer reminders as early as 4 in the morning.

Staff are friendly. Cozy atmosphere, almost like being in a home. Ultra spacious room, provided with kitchen utensils in 3 bedrooms. I also like the fact they provide one gallon of water (instead of 2 bottles of water per day) in each room, so we didn't run out of water.

Room Tip: Facing swimming pool will be quieter.

Room Tip: Ask for the pool view
