Recent guest reviews
Borobudur is a good 5 star hotel located in the heart of the city, it is an old renovated hotel, well maintained, has a good swimming pool and jogging track, gym facilities and a tennis court. The price is affordable with a good complete breakfast, there is also a saturday night buffet servicing the best octail soup in town, should try this.
Borobudur hotel is without doubt a great hotel paired together with the professionalism of their staff. However, the hotel is very much stalled in the past where once you enter the grandeur of its entrance, you can smell the very heavily perfumed air due to the fact that it still allows people to walk around its property with cigar or cigarettes in hand. It's such a pity that a supposedly a 5 stars hotel still very much unwilling to make its property a non smoking one. I understand that the majority of the population in Jakarta are still heavy smokers. However, please separate it from the public/ common areas and/Or restaurants/ bar/ lounge. I'm talking specifically about the beautifully decorated Pendopo lounge. As a non smoker, I can barely stand 5 minutes being there. There are very much visible cigarette stained/ burnt on their beautiful furniture because of that. Such a pity! The heavily perfumed air is not only a chocking hazard once you enter the property but I believe it is not going to be good for the health of your employees who are there most of the time. Please management... consider moving forward to a healthier environment. Not only for your guests but also your employees.
Sorry for the late reviews. Love this hotel for their image of green and indonesian culture style. I stayed in this hotel twice for business. But the second time i bring with my big family too. We're chinese and my sister cant speak english at all. When i still had meeting. She got some little wound and need to buy some medication. So after so many efforts to ask where to buy some bandages. The staff finally know her meaning and bring her to the inhouse clinic. Surprisingly the female doctor overthere can speak chinese!!!..she helped her alot. Thankyou so much for helping my sister whenever there is no one in this hotel can speak chinese. I hope someday this hotel can always provide 1 or 2 staff that can speaks chinese . Thankyou for ur great work. Will come back for sure this summer.
We stayed for 1 night on 31 dec 2017. Overall, it was a nice staycation because we got early bird price and hotel's facilities are good. A little note is the time that need for check-in quite long, so it made a long queue at the check in counter. Because the check-in counter was crowded that day, the AC was not enough to chill the room. Thanks to the management for the welcome drink, quite refreshing on hot day. A little disappointment is the parking space, because it was new years eve the hotel was fully booked so it was difficult to find a parking space. One of The security staff we met at the parking was not helping at all, he didn't give us any solution..beside, he said that we're not the only guest here, if you want to complain just complain to the management, what a rude gesture :(
I used to stay here on holidays. A lot. I always book the hotel room before I go to Jakarta, to make sure that the room availability is guaranteed. I always book the non-smoking room. But the last time I came here, the receptionist told us that the non-smoking rooms were full. So they gave us the smoking room. And me and mu family couldn't deal with the smell of the room. But we thought that's ok because they didn't have any non-smoking room. Few days ago, on new year, we came back to spend our holiday in this hotel. As usual, we already booked the non-smoking room. But, again, when we got there the receptionist told us that the non-smoking rooms were full! He suggested the smoking room but we didn't want it because we already booked the non-smoking one. He kept saying that it was fully booked from early december and no more non-smoking room until new year. We argued for minutes. After waiting for several minutes, he came back and turned out he gave us the non-smoking room! So in fact, the non-smoking room were NOT full. But after that we still have to wait for 1 hour and 15 minutes to get into the room! Even though it was already 3.30 pm, the check in hour is 2 pm, aren't they supposed to be ready at that time? But the Sop Buntut is still good tho, too bad that the service was not good enough. Hope it will be better next time.
I recommend this hotel, especially for the amenities and facilities + location If you can get access to the Discovery Club Lounge, try it Friendly staff, yummy food, ideal for family weekend I will certainly come back for family weekend
its always crowded during new year and idul fitri, but they managed to handle it such as open additional breakfast space in the ballroom. The facilities is great, but it will be better if they can add a little bit of things to add the fun in the kids pool such as water slides, as it is very plain. Re the room itself, it was spacious but not as clean as i remember (maybe because it was during new year and pretty pack?) the sink was clogged and glass in bathroom has those white stain from water (like never been washed for very long time). Bath towel is greyish and looks like its been used very long time. But other than that, it was pleasant stay.
Enjoy the fireworks only from the window of my suite room... Amazing!!! There's a lot of venue for the show at lobby and several activity for new year eve The room is very big and comfort for my family to enjoy the new year eve
The event for the fireworks is very good. I would give it a 9 of 10. Although my car full of fireworks residu. Food is just average here. Room condition in my Club Suite is average also. But breakfast was just too standard in my club suite. The queue is long in the Bogor Cafe for breakfast morning in Jan 1. The hotel is just too crowded at swimming pool at 31st. I think the room should be renovate to adjust the ambience to newer era of interior design.
It was a very good experience during the stay of H.E. the Vice President of Afghanistan and his accompanying delegation. The staff were cooperative and friendly. The stay of the Afghan delegation was comfortable. Four staff of the Club Discovery Lounge, namely: Ms. Arinda, Ms. Annisa, Ms. Dewi and Mr. Hasan were extremely helpful, nice and cooperative. On behalf of the Embassy of Afghanistan in Jakarta, I would like to thank all the staff of the hotel, especially the four above mentioned staff of Club Discovery Lounge for their support and pleasant behavior. Wish you all the best, ZALMAI WAFAMAL DEPUTY CHIEF OF MISSION EMBASSY OF AFGHANISTAN, JAKARTA
