Menara Peninsula Hotel Jakarta4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I've been staying here for many times for work or family matter. The hotel is in a good location (maybe because it's next to my office hahaha...) and not too far from Grand Indonesia shopping mall. The newly renovated executive floor is nice and modern, but room service price is way too expensive for a so-so food.
My first impression was lack of hospitality. The room was not too amusing, but with affordable price, I say this was better. When I arrived at the hotel, there was nobody on the concierge helping me carry my travel bags. The AC was broken, sometimes it turned off. Towels were not clean and quite raggy. At first I was planning to give 3 stars rate, but the breakfast buffet was too good, that's why I rate it 4 stars. Menus were vary and they tasted delicious.
Menara Peninsula is an old hotel i guess. The building looks old but the service is great. I like the breakfast, they serve many menus, lots of bread, drinks, fruit and even other desserts. And I like all the taste, it fits perfectly on my tongue. The position of the hotel is less strategic, several times I booked a taxi and the taxi driver was confused how to get into the door of his lobby. But I keep recommending this hotel. Not disappointed.
I love the room, it's spacious, bathroom is also spacious with a great shower and tubs. The television is a bit small and outdated, need immediate improvement here. Cleanliness is okay, bathroom amenities are perfect, and a newspaper every morning. Sound insulation needs improvement, specially in the bathroom, the shower sound from next door is really loud. Breakfast choices are great, tons of choices, but tastewise is a so so. I didn't get the chance to try out the pools, spa and fitness tho, maybe next time. In room dinner menu is great but expensive. Location is easy, close enough to get anywhere, very close to slipi jaya plaza, just a few meters walking distance. It was a good stay, will stay again.
This is my second long weekend stay at this hotel, so I thought I would take advantage of the newly renovated Executive Floor. I have been fortunate enough to travel to many countries and stay in hotels with Executive Floors, so my expectations were probably high. As you will read, I was somewhat disappointed. I have to say that the rooms are spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. The staff are very polite and courteous, and check in is a breeze. I would just like to share with you, some of the things I find to be misleading. The hotel advertises that each room on this floor has a Jacuzzi, a Rain Shower, a Spa Bath and Iron and Board. In fact, the rooms do NOT have these. There is a Jacuzzi, but it's in the Spa. There are baths in each room, but NOT Spa baths. The Executive Floor package tries to entice you with such things as free drinks and food, in the Executive Lounge. Unfortunately, this extends to 1 glass of wine each, or 1 beer, per person, per day! The hotel now offers Afternoon Tea, where you can get finger buffet food, in the lounge. This is advertised as 1500-1800, which is then changed to the advertised 'Canopies?'. In reality, this is the same tired and dried up finger buffet that is left over from the Afternoon Tea. A Dinner Buffet was also advertised, but when I went down to eat, I was told that due to low occupancy, this would not be happening, so I had to order 'a la carte'. I actually paid more for this dubious pleasure than if I had taken a Suite! All you get for the extra money is: 1 drink, three pieces of laundry, some dried up and tired looking food, and a 'free mini bar!' Ah, I see that got your attention. Well, don't get too excited, as when I opened it, it contained..........2 BOTTLES OF WATER!!! I had to call the lounge, and they said they would come and stock it. They did! 1 can of Coke, a bottle of Milo and another bottle of water!! I have to say, the food in the hotel is very good, and the breakfast buffet, even though available in the Exec lounge, is much better, downstairs, and with a wider variety. I was informed that on checking out, I could do that from the lounge. However, when I tried to do this, I was told that staff would have to go to the main reception, to get my paperwork. That being the case, I just went there, myself! Would it have been too difficult to send this up, knowing that I was checking out that day? I would definitely stay here again, as I know that cleanliness of rooms is of a high standard, so when I return, I will go back to the suites, and give the Executive Floor a miss!
I was staying in this hote for 2 night, on suite room. the room is quite large, and I love their concept of separate room for work and rest. the bathroom is also spacious, and over all the room is clean. the only problem is noise that I bet came from AC. it was quite disturbing. the swimming pool is great, the tiny waterfall is really good.
I guess it is at best, described as Average. Not luxurious, not well located, and no one certainly goes out of there way for good customer service, Got a pretty good price booking online, or else it was just an ok stay, with nothing memorable. Hotel is located in Slipi, which can be 10-30 minutes into central Jakarta depending on traffic. Lots of better choices.
The hotel's proximity to enter and exit toll gate to Soekarno-Hatta International airport will get you to the airport within 1 hour in a taxi. It is located just outside Central Business District. While the hotel was first opened in the late 1990's, the tall lobby entrance is grand and very welcoming for a 4-star hotel with swimming pool, and the spacious bedrooms have been renovated quite a few times. The bedrooms in the executive floor have just been newly renovated and are very nice.
Good hotel which has a good location. Hotel room is spacious but the interior design is quite old. Breakfast taste is good and it has some food variation. Check in and check out process is fast enough.
The rooms are spacious, there is a bathtube. The amenities are complete. Unfortunately the condition of the room is very old, need improvement from the interior side of the room. Similarly, the speed of internet access is very ordinary course, lagging far behind the budget hotels are rampant everywhere. For breakfast menu is available quite many choices.
