3rd and maybe the last stay at this hotel. Many problems with the room, starting from the noisy bed and the problemS we had with the bathroom. Bathtub in the manhattan suite smells so bad, which probably was due to the whirlpool system. The hotel needs to have a full maintenance as we also have problem in the mara and venus suite on their bathroom and bed.
I stayed in the Mars and Venus suite for a week. Pros were the room was spacious and clean. The location is great. However, it was not a pleasure to interact with the staff. They forgot to return my deposit. I had to fight for the deposit that I had paid. The breakfast has a wide variety but is cold. Overall the cons supercede the pros for this hotel.
In the busy Kuningan area or casa blanca area according to some is Manhattan hotel. Right next door is Bank Maulamat building and next two blocks are shopping and eating joints. Shopping ranging from international brands to local shopping and ditto for the eating joints close to the hotel. They are multiple ATM's as well all within 3-4 minutes of walk. Its a busy street with traffic buzzing all night and if you have road facing room and a light sleeper you will witness it like I did. I have stayed with them twice simply because they are located in central Jakarta, they have an Indian restaurant and they are Value for money. The Executive rooms are spacious with a decent size washroom with a Bath tub. The big picture window overlooks the prime residential and business district of South CBD at a distance. Beware of the bed though its corners are dangerous for your shin/knee caps. The best thing about the room was the huge electronic safe, I have never seen one of this size in any hotel till date. It works the best for someone like me who carries a lot of paraphanelia of electronic gadgets for travel. The AC could be funny at times excessive cooling or otherwise. Before fully unpacking spend hour to see if it works or you would need a room change. The rooms have a mini bar which is priced higher than the marked prices with tea coffee machine which I rarely use. There is a in room Iron board but the Iron was missing on both the occassions, had to call for it. The recent trip though I was shocked to hear them say that Iron is available only for an hour of use and HAS to be returned....Serioulsy...they have invested for multiple iron boards for all rooms with limited rotating irons. Also mind you the cable lenghts are short hence it makes ironing painful. The also provide two bottles of water everyday of half a litre. There is only one International charging point. It would be wise to busy a convertor...Ambassador mall next door has multiple shops selling them for 50k IDR. The foyer is very small with basement parking and valet services. The lobby is basic with live piano playing some of the evenings. The check in is usally a breeze where you have to block amounts on your card for stay and or consumables. At the time of check in you also get a set of Breakfast coupons if its on the plan each with dates and also a set of discount coupons to be used at the restaurtans, bars and spa. The breakfast is at 3rd floor Coffee shop....Beware the timings are sacrosanct It is open till 10am but they start wrapping up from 9.50 hence be there on time or simply miss out. The coffee shop is big enough with a large open air seating in case you want to smoke and or enjoy the after hours of fresh rainfall which is common there. The spread is huge but largely devoted to local fares. There is small section of Indian food and of course the Egg counter which was the saviour all the time. I didn't explore much here. At the roof top is the Indian restaurant which is usually frequented by Indian folks who stay here and sometime local or expats are to be seen. Most of their dining or bars are usually not busy except for the coffee shop for breakfast. The Indian restaurant offers views of the main street below. The open air seating will offer you views of the bank next door and Westin Hotel which is right behind. The fare is good with option like mini meal which covers all the aspects of Indian food in small portions. If you are a small eater like me its a best bet for the price. The service is good, decor is average and music is simply loud and annoying sometimes. Guess since locals are running the show they are not able to distinguish between what is good bollywood music and what is noise. This time around I spotted the chefs too who are passing the restaurant to catch on the IPL match which was being aired. The wifi at hotel is free and of decent speed. You are allowed to use upto 3 devices which was blessing. Not sure if the same rule applies for double occupancy then it will been shutting on and off devices periodically. The staff is overall good, language could be a barrier especially dealing with service staff of restaurant and or house keeping. The bell desk has a handy blue bird taxi for you for the airport. plus there is a golden eagle ready at hand too if you wish to travel by more cleaner and chic cabs. The rates are similar to what is charged from Airport to hotel. It can be paid by credit card and saves the hassles of paying for toll, etc. The Kuningan city mall offers variety of coffee shops - Starbucks, etc and multiple eatching joints like Burger King, Outback (steak house) plus a lots more at their basement level. Plus there are international brands of apparels, pharmacy, VFS Visa services and Lotte mart too. Overall a good place to stay....traffic could be killing at times as the road is narrow around here.
I had business at the Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta. The hotel was just beside the Embassy. It’s at the centre so there’s a lot of shopping malls and stores. The hotel itself was fine. The staffs we friendly and helpful enough. I would definitely stay again.
I have stayed at Manhattan hotel for three times. I like the hotel because the location is so close to Kuningan city mall, the place where VFS located (for applying Visas to Schengen, UK, etc). The hotel was quite big. The room was just OK.
2x times staying in this hotel. I love it because near to mall, kuningan city. Just by walk. The room was good, comfy bed. nothing to complaint. They have a really great city view too. I like it. There are many restaurant in this hotel. cafe, lounge, dimsum, indonesian, western, they have it all. But for me, it's a lil' bit over price for the room. Standard room, standard hotel, no special treatment or special facility, but overpriced. the parking area is too small. and no lift from parking area to lobby. they're not connecting either. So if you drive yourself, or rent car, and you need to park the car yourself, you need to take stairs to get to lobby. (the stairs is not inside the lobby). pretty much not convenient for someone who driving alone, and bring a luggage. overall, everything was great.
I ve been there a couple of weeks ago, I ve booked a non smoking room but I had to take a smoking room good position but rest just average, she went to the breakfast 15 min before closing it and they were taking the food off the table in front of me
Food and room are the best.. i got comfortable of ambience from restaurant .... the good view the best view 😍😍😍 service from nita and rinda good they are helped me to get some food and gave information about the food thanks all ❤️ Will come back soon 👍
i booked mars and venus suite by online apps, fast registration and theres a regulation to put some kind if allotment, deposit IDR 500k, which will return back at check out time you will received voucher welcome drinks and should apply to restaurant, and discount voucher for event item or hotels vendor mars n venus room so spacious, i can play hide n seek with myself, i stayed at 16th fl and have multiple view of jalan kuningan business district bathroom is marvelous, theres bath tub and also have shower sprinkler ; separately, which one you prefer, just make a choice ; shower sprinkler style in the morning, bath tub mode on after office hour the room have a minibar complete with snack, and light drinks ultimate breakfast at the 3rd floor with various food and drinks, but so crowded, i think the hotel should rearrange the table position, at some point theres crowd traffic, ex : queing for juice corner next to my table the swimming pool located at 8th fl an open deck of pool surrounded by office building, theres also gym and spa at the same place housekeeping is remarkable, fast respond worth and highly recommend
The hotel is dirty, I even found a piece of dry rice on my desk, slippers were worn before, has marks and re packaged back to the plastic cover for next use. Toilet seats has cracks. Internet is terrible, not stable at all. Doors have water marks. Bed is old, hard. Towel is old and turned yellowish. Ciling has black finger prints all over. Cupboards are chipped.
