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.
