Hotel Borobudur Jakarta
Ranked #38 of 471 Hotels in Jakarta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 October 2006

My wife, our 1 1/2 yr old son and I stayed in Jakarta for 4 months. We first stayed at the Hilton, now called something else. because it was right across the street from work. The rooms were spacious though a bit dated. The facilities were nice, many tennis courts, two pools, a nice fitness center, ok restaurants and located close to a park with soccer and basketball courts. The childrens' play aria was a bit lacking. There wasn't much grounds to speak of.

The borobudur was recommeded to us and we checked it out. The room was spacious enough for all three of us. The two bedroom was TOO spacious if you can believe that. We found the security comforting, the staff at all levels to be consistently professional and courteous and the grounds very nice to walk around. The facilties includes a covered full length basketball court (the sincher for me), 2 uncovered and 2 covered tennis courts, a 700m cushioned path for running or walking that flowa around the perimeter of the grounds, a gym with strength machines, free weights, aerobic machines and classes, saunas, very attentive staff and beautiful large pool. There is a nice outdoor play area and indoor kids place also. We tried all 3 or 4 of the restaurants there and were very pleased with them all. There is also a bakery for fresh baked treats, cakes, quiches and loaves.

The very comforting environment made us forget that we were in the middle of Jaktown. Tho' not in the center of the city, there is easy acess to the main roads and highways. It is also near the national mall, which, being from Washington, DC, rivals the US national mall easily. There are also basketball courts and soccer fields across the street in addition to a full size track.

Next time we need to stay for more than a bit in Jakarta, we will stay at the Borobudur.

Stayed: December 2005

The hotel sits in a cool green oasis right in the middle of central jakarta which is a huge attraction however the hotel itself is a little less grand.
The rooms are fine but seem a little bare and really don't match up to the grand lobby and grounds. As well the hotel is very large so some are a long walk from the lift.
The hotels' biggest weak point however is its service which can be a little abrupt even verging on the rude. certainly not 5 star standard.
Although the grounds are lovely and the food good in my opinion better hotels can be had for this price in Jakarta.

I strongly recommend the Borobudur as a base of operations for anyone visiting Jakarta for work or pleasure. I have stayed at this hotel for almost 12 months in total, and I have yet to find any reason to go anywhere else. The restaurants are excellent (the beautifully remodeled Bogor Cafe has just reopened) and the service is friendly and efficient. The grounds are truly magnificent and include a rubberized 700 meter running track that complements the fully equipped health club. The executive suites and lounge are the best value in town. The Borobudur is not as flashy as some of its newer five star competitors, but overall it provides a wonderful oasis that is much needed in this hectic city. Enjoy your stay!

I found Jakarta a hard place to love, but I did like the Borobudur. It's 23 acres of high security country club in the middle of the city, with tennis, olympic pool, health spa, and great dining. Service from the staff was superb. I'd go back again just to stay here.
