Chances are if you are arriving to Jakarta Indonesia its a bit of a long haul flight from anywhere except Malaysia or Singapore. So like us you want to get into your hotel bed as soon as possible to rest up to enjoy the rest of the trip.
Aloft Jakarta is a very standard experience, of a city hotel and the brand in general, but it was truly a worthwhile way to spend the first night. Arriving at 10pm a shower, bed and delicious breakfast were all we needed before we set out the next day to the various luxury hotels we would be staying at the rest of the trip.
It is very well located and it is not the most upscale neighborhood but a safe and central part of Jakarta. There are lots of cafes and very nice shopping centers nearby too.
The room is small but very well appointed. The service was very straightforward from check in to check out. Everything we asked for we received in a timely manner. Due to loyalty status with Starwood we received a complimentary breakfast with fresh, good quality food. There is complementary parking and the hotel has a business casual vibe with trendy architecture and comfy social spaces.
Aloft Jakarta delivered as a property exactly what we needed it for, a place to refresh and recharge, a good first night in Indonesia after long hours of flying.
