"Cozy ambience with good buffet"
After years, I stepped myself again at Aston Marina Ancol. The hotel is still quite the same with its warm and cozy ambience. Love the scent since my first smell into the lobby area. Continue to have a buffet dinner here, at Cumi-Cumi Restaurant. The dinner theme is about Jakarta's food because tomorrow, on 22 June, Jakarta will reach 490years! Love their Laksa Betawi, especially the soup. Also the Nasi Uduk and Nasi Kunig with perfect condiment. Haven't visit a hotel which prepare some variety of fish, they even have catfish! My recommendation, you need to try! The restaurant also provide a refill beverages : juice, ice tea and iced water - while some other hotels will give another charge for this. For the dessert, all the fruits array are fresh, mostly a tropical fruit. And also love their Es Buah! Last but not least, try a glass of iced cappucinno in their lobby lounge, which will complete your dinner here! FYI, the waiter and waitress at Cumi-Cumi also doing a good job. They are very polite and always know when to clean our finished dish.
"Nice place to stay"
Comfortable, clean rooms, really close to Taman Impian Jaya Ancol (you can basically walk to the entrance gate). Good breakfast options too, complete with middle eastern menu. Swimming pool could be cleaner though.
I've been in some bad hotels but this one takes the prize. Very very long check in and not faster checking out either. Don't be fooled by the photos provided by the hotel as these are not the same as what is reality. I'm guessing that they're photos that were taken when first furnished. We had a 2 bed apartment and the air conditioning was in both rooms was shocking. The AC in the living room was ok. Luckily we had only booked there for night .
"Short Trip for Ancol"
I was arriving from Marina and went to this hotel with my spouse on foot because of its short distance. It was difficult for us to find the entrance of the hotel because the hotel was apparently build in with the residences (apartments and flats). The welcoming was so-so, and the check-in process was awful. The manager was discussing something with the staff at the receptionist desk, and the other staffs were talking about closing cashier by the end of their shift while assisting us for check in. The check in process took about 10 minutes. I ordered a pass to go to Ancol but they did not seem to take note on my profile, because the next day I have to repeat my order. Upon departure, somehow the bellman was real helpful when I thought that I left my snorkelling CD from Tidung in the room. He put his 100% concern if I could not find the CD. The restaurant was great, not with the staff but the meal. I love the soto corner and mostly the meal were tasty :) The room was great with affordable price, very spacious and great shower pressure. Love it!! But they need to pay attention to the defects in the room, there were many from the wall and from the balcony.
Good hotel staff service, but many things need to be fixed. The bed is a bit old and rundown. Not sure if I will stay there again other than I think the hotel staff is really nice. I could smell the smell from smoking in my room. The previous customer must have smoked in my room.
