The Hermitage Jakarta

The hotel is located in the upscale residential area of Menteng.   The location is not far away from buzzling Thamrin and Sudirman area but you can find some tranqulity in Jakarta which is rather rare.   Navigating to the hotel may be a bit a challenge if you are not familar with the area as the streets around are mostly oneway street.

Here is the entrance of the hotel taken from the roof top.

Here are the picture of the hotel lobby.  It is nicely decorated and many pictures of old Batavia (the old name of Jakarta during colonial time) and also map of the Menteng area during the colonial time.


As a Starwood Platinum, I was upgraded to the Executive Suite room (which is the second highest room category in the hotel).

The hotel has a huge living area with a door that separated the living area with the bed room area.   The bath room is quite long with seperate bath tube and shower area.   I found the wardrobe area is too big.  I guess this probably the limitation imposed by the old building stucture.

Most (if not all) of the suites room located in the old building and the Deluxe rooms are mainly located in the new tower.

Here are the pictures of the room.

The room was pre-prepared for me and here is the welcome gift which is very beautiful

The hotel does not have a lounge, but they provide evening cocktail and the best choice is to use it in Le Vue which is at the roof top of the hotel.

It is advisable to go up before sunset as the view is very nice and the place tends to get very crowded.

Here is the menu for the Platinum

The swimming pool and gym is rather small and located just below the roof top.

Breakfast has a quite good selection also.


Here is some random pictures taken from the hotel

I found this hotel is good for someone who wants to have some peaceful time in very busy Jakarta.  It is not too far from Thamrin and Sudirman area.  The service is also very good.
