"It's all about location" Ibis Arcadia Jakarta Tip by wild.goose

Ibis Arcadia Jakarta, Jakarta: 366 reviews and 1 photos

Well, apart from its great location (45min from Sukarno-Hatta airport and in the heart of the business district) and mostly savvy staff, I don't think this hotel justified its price much. It's located just round the business district, near Taman Sari Spa (which apparently the Indonesia's Miss Universe likes to frequent), a Batik Keris Boutique (famous Indonesian textiles) and 2 internet joints - which is great bcos the internet at the hotel is very dodgy and they charge alot for a slow connection and an unstable system. The internet cafe 2 blocks down above the McDonalds does a better job and at a better price. The hotel offers many services, probably more than you could use, and some you shouldn't use like the house-call doctor who has an obnoxious consultation rate of USD50, on top of this the hotel will take a 5% commission and they might not inform you of this prior. I'd only go back bcos of its proximity to everything and considering the high rates of other hotels in this district, but I wouldn't if I could help it.

Unique Qualities: The hotel staff can connect you to and locate almost anything in the city - well informed, well connected.
