The main problem with Park Lane is the location. It is relatively central enabling reasonable access by taxi to the CBD, but in its immediate setting it is very isolated, surrounded by roads and residential units. There are no shops/ restaurants in the immediate vicinity meaning access to basic needs has to be done via taxi, or in the exorbitant hotel restaurants.
The hotel is also very tatty around the edges. Probably once grand, it has not been well maintained, although there were some renovations occuring on one floor when I visited. The quality is not what one would expect from a hotel of this rating and price. The windows are also not soundproofed and the sound of traffic, taxi calls from the megaphone outside the lobby, etc, is constantly audible, even on a high floor.
For business travellers the services offered are pricy and inconvenient. E.g. internet access is an obscene Rp85,000 a day, and having purchased the access you can only use it (a) wired in your room or (b) wireless in the lobby (wireless access in the pool area was broken when I was there), and even then, only on the laptop you registered with. Using wifi on your smart phone will set you back an additional Rp100,000.
There are far better located, maintained and serviced hotels in Jakarta. I had planned to stay here three times over three weeks but cancelled my second two visits.
