“Quite good but usual issues (for me anyway) ..”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

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

My wife and I stayed at Manhatten for the 3rd time from 14th - 22nd January 2012
(after a period of 18th months.)
We were happy with the services rendered, although telephone and internet signals were very erratic.
We were upgraded to a suite as all non smoking rooms had booked out. This is the 2nd time we have been upgraded.
The food spread at buffet breakfast is by far the best , I have seen during my stay at several hotels in Jakarta. If you are looking for good Indian food, then Manhatten is one of the better places.
The plus point now is that there is the new shopping complex located just outside of the Hotel.
You would be spoilt for choice.
The minus point is that there is a perpetual traffic jam outside the Hotel. (due to the building of the fly over.
Walking distance to the ITC Mall and several 5 star hotels.

Room Tip: A great place to leave your wife, while you go out to work in Jakarta's business district.

The hotel is located at the center of the city. Have good access to various area with but with good knowledge of alternative routes (through Pendurenan area and Kuningan). Access from ITC Mall Ambassador may take up to 30 - 45 minutes just for 1 km travel.

The front office (Ms. Yenni) was very rude to us. Answering the questions only as necessary with harsh tone and not helping us at all. The bellboy were a lot better and friendly.

The room is spacious, with various amenities, but have a heavy trace of tobacco smell, which makes it very unpleasant.

Room Tip: Suites are generally better than standard room with small difference in price.

Not all the memorable, but that is Jakarta. We stayed for a cricket tour and nothing to complain about. Lots of concrete and stuff. Location was ok, there was a mall somewhere nearby.
