The entrance is blinking and shiny, the personnell friendly, but their English was not very good, so we had some misunderstanding on taxi time, even though we wrote it down. The rooms are fine. Beds are OK, and the swimming pool looks very nice. Still we had the impression that the hotel has had better times and not all floors...

Ideal located if you’re interested in the Batavia history. Hotel is close to Taman Fatahillah, just a couple of minute walk. The room was very spacious, but the bathroom was not really clean. Hotel is huge but also kind of spooky. Breakfast is basic but well organized.

I would not be surprised to find out that this place is haunted, it seems as if it is dripping with history. Very big and grand but it could do with some renovation in some areas. The staff open doors for you, insist on carrying bags and are very friendly indeed, however their english could be improved. Location is walking...

The only part of Jakarta which has the slightest attraction for me is Batavia,therefore this old giant of a hotel was the perfect choice. The hotel is huge and on my two visits in Feb and March this year we seemed like the only guests. Its a five minute walk to the popular and historic Batavia square with its many...

The hotel is ok, but the rooms and hallways smell like smoke, and the breakfast was just ok. The lobby looks good, a little worn-down, but the rooms and the rest of the hotel even more so. Could use some renovating... There is a pool-table and a dart board in the bar which is fun, and the pool area is...

The hotel was a pretty great find for the location and the price. We were pretty shocked how large and fancy it was for the price but also stayed in off season with nearly no one there. The room was just OK but definitely good enough and large enough with working TV, air and hot water. The staff was super...
