    People may choose to stay at the Batavia Hotel for:

    – It being the nearest star-rated hotel to the historical Kota (a.k.a. Old Town) district. From here, you can walk (as I did) or rent a bicycle – including a rider/tour guide – to tour the area.

    – Its proximity to Kota train station (where many intercity trains start and terminate) and the airport toll road. This can very handy for early or late departures and/or arrivals, as it was for me.

    – Being in a relatively quiet part of town. I had no problem with noise from outside or neighbouring rooms.

    – A very competitive price compared to other 4-star hotels in Jakarta.

    The check-in and check-out process was quick and easy enough. You have to give a room key(card) deposit of Rp100 000.

    The room itself was spacious, well-furnished and clean. The main room lights were activated by motion detection; this was nice because you didn’t have to find/reach a switch, but they regularly went off if reading, watching TV, while taking a shower in the bathroom, etc. The TV remote control didn’t work very well. The shower was nice, although in my room the plug was difficult to open (to release water), so when having a shower, I was doing a heel and toe polka every couple of minutes. On a lighter note, I swear the room had the world’s crappest in-room pencil!

    The included buffet breakfast (available from 6 until 10) was tasty and had many choices. It was easy to miss some of them because the food was placed in different areas of the restaurant, rather than in one location.

    There is a fitness centre and a pool. The pool (open at 7am) was very nice. I didn’t get to use the fitness centre (open at 8am) because I had to leave at 8:30. It would be a rush to do exercise and have a shower before eating breakfast.
