First time there at the Manhattan - check in excellent and place looks great. Room was terrific - great views, clean room and spacious. TV good reception and aircon good. Breakfast really good with Indian food too. Well done! Room boys/girls very friendly and helpful. Bathroom in my suite was really nice and a nifty bath too looking right out over Jakarta. Taxi men out front from BlueBird Taxis do their best to get taxis from a very congested and crazy street out front.
Not so good things - internet strength not so good (voucher system difficult to work - why not free like the Mandarin?), in my room wardrobe doors a brilliant example of BAD design (can almost cut ya fingers off if you are not careful) and dirty windows outside so the fabulous views of Jakarta are spoilt. Minibar prices (as usual in all hotels and i will never understand this) ridiculous markup and Coca Cola for example from Room Service at a whopping 9 times the street price. Just wander up to the adjacent malls and stock up if you need mini-bar type stuff. The cocktail bar near the top of the building looks good (empty on the Friday night i went there) and just to let you know a glass of beer is around $10 - two for one is available thank goodness otherwise prices quite silly!.
Check out slow even tough not busy! Then check your accounts as they were trying to charge for things from minibar BUT not taken. Aqua in room being charged on my bill was quite unexpected as the bottles sat right next to the free coffee and tea, etc, on the mini-kitchen bench.
Room Tip: rooms at front have problem with some traffic noise - go high up too
