Kartika Chandra Hotel
I wonder why Cosmotourist doesn’t have Kartika Chandra Hotel on the list; this is a great fancy 3 stars hotel about half hour or so from the international airport of Jakarta (Soekarno-Hatta). Surrounding this hotel are shopping center, tourist attractions, embassies and so on. Many of the nice hotels that I have stayed in while in Indonesia are also not on the list of Cosmotourist though, so once again, let me introduce you to another nice place where you can list down as a place to check and stay when you are traveling in Indonesia! ;-)
Before I continue more, if you see the pictures below, please do excuse the kind of dark pictures (unless the outside shot). Many times when we stayed in a hotel, we hardly took pictures but video shots, the pictures I uploaded here are also from one of the video shots that we took, so the results are a bit dark.
We stayed for 3 nights at Kartika Chandra’s Executive Suite Room. I am not sure about other rooms’ rates, but ours was around Rp. 1.200.000 (about USD $ 130). The view from our room was downtown Jakarta with busy traffic. The service in this hotel is really good and the lobby has unique style and ornaments which I think authentic Betawi culture (authentic Jakartans).
They always refill the mini bar in our room daily. Comfortable complete sofas along with the coffee table and the material is matching the bed sheets are available in the guest room area inside our room. Toilet for the guests is even available in our room but of course separately from our own. So it’s similar to an apartment or condo, different from other 3 stars hotels that we have stayed in before.
I don’t remember the address exactly, but I still have the phone numbers for Kartika Chandra if you are interested in staying there; 62 21 5205000 or 62 21 5251008
*NOTE: This hotel is located at Jalan Gatot Subroto, border of South Jakarta and Central Jakarta; near Semanggi Fly Over. I can not find the exact location on Cosmotourist, so I am posting this in "Semanggi" [more ]
