5-star hotel with European style
If you need a change from Jakarta's boring business hotels, the Gran Mahakam is a nice change of scenery. The hotel tries to create a European feel with elegant furnishings and art and very gracious service.
My room was small, but was very clean and nicely furnished. The style is more elegant than modern and the Tv is the old style. The bathroom is good with marble counter tops and a bathtub. Internet is an additional charge and it's quite high at $7/hour.
There are also all the facilities you'd expect of a 5-star hotel including a swimming pool, gym, spa and restaurants. I was quite happy with the breakfast buffet as the coffee is the real deal (not nescafe) and there are some Indonesian dishes to try as well as the usual western breakfast foods.
The Gran Mahakam isn't as luxurious as it looks online, but it's still a good place to stay.
