Sofyan Hotel Betawi
Ranked #298 of 470 Hotels in Jakarta
Reviewed 7 November 2014

I stayed for 1 night to get a "shari'a" hotel experience. It was not a big different to a regular small hotel except if you are for alcoholic beverages and things in that nature prohibited by Islamic Law. Hotel is small and do not expect any decent "hotel view". It was just a big house - the former embassy building. I stayed in room 349 and air conditioning was bad - not helping in this steamy hot Jakarta in the mid of drought season. Breakfast was pretty basic, don't expect any spectacular meal. To conclude, all the above is expected considering the relatively low hotel fare.

Room Tip: Ask for room with good air-conditioning

Stayed here for 1 night just for 1 night by friend's invitation. Exterior is classic, homey feeling type of hotel. Lobby isn't so big aswell. Only have 1 restaurant with a limited choice of menu. The room is not bright aswell. Some of it only have next door building wall view. Though the window can be opened, but not enough lighting in the night. Bed is comfy enough. Basic amenities, but they dont provide bath gel / shower gel. Hot water didn't run. A/C took long time to get cool enough. Wifi didn't working properly (both in the room and public area). Not so friendly staff, most of them are like they worked there for years. The only good thing is that it is closed to most of government offices and embasies. You can walk for a few minutes to the movie theater, art center (taman ismail marzuki) and museum. Try other hotels near by when you visited Jakarta.

We stayed here as backpackers because of a nice budget deal on Agoda. The hotel and rooms are nice and clean, but for traveling this is not the best pick. The hotel is mostly filled with businessmen and there is really zero travelers atmosphere. The next time in Jakarta I will look for something else.

Should you go to Jakarta for vacation with your family, recommended to stay in this hotel. Clean hotel, friendly staff, nice food and syariah rule are the some reason that would be suitable for you and family as well as really valuable for money you paid for.

The hotel's great for those who appreciate calmness and wanna get away from the large occupants of big hotels. 3-storey hotel with lifts. The room is basic but acceptably
clean. No alcoholic beverage served here, staff are reliable and friendly. Food is nice.
You'll feel safe in this hotel.
