This was my first visit to Jakarta and H.I. Express Jakarta Wahid Hasyim proved to be an excellent choice for my stay.
On my late arrival I was assisted by Randy at the front desk who was
welcoming, friendly and professional. The property was situated in a strategic location close to shopping, eating and transportation. The Sarinah Mall was just a few steps away crossing the major street. The hotel had a contemporary and "fun" decor with a "boutique" feel..
Rooms were nicely appointed and I would say that this particular establishment is one step above what one would find in the U.S.
The buffet breakfast featured both Western and Asian dishes with local specialties that are rotated on a daily basis. Service was friendly and attentive during my two visits there with the managers on hand helping out.
However, I encountered some minor issues like noise outside of the room (during the call to prayer from a nearby mosque early in the morning) which was not under the hotel's control and body wash being depleted after taking a shower. However, this was remedied right away after I told the front desk the following morning.
Overall this property met and exceeded my expectations for a hotel of this category and I would gladly go back next time I am in Jakarta. [Less]
