Sofyan Hotel Betawi
Ranked #298 of 468 Hotels in Jakarta
Reviewed 8 May 2017 via mobile

I stayed here for a wedding event at a nearby place. The hotel location is pretty strategic although it's not located in the protocol street. The room size is like budget hotel, but I don't know why it felt so small and cramped. Maybe because of the furniture. The furniture is quite old btw, started to worn out. Big dissapoinmet was there were no electric plugs by the bed side so you can not charge your gadgets while laying in bed.
The breakfast was below average for a 3 stars hotel. Not too many options and taste wise was not good enough. The quality was also pretty low. Big dissapoinmet was the milk served was not good and so watery.
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, and probably that was one of the good thing about the hotel. Definitely need lots of improvements. I've stayed at another syariah hotel before, and I must say the other syariah hotel was much much better. I must agree with previous comment, why name the hotel with "betawi". I didn't see any betawi culture touch in the hotel.

- Location is in the city centre, located near an elite, quiet residential area (Menteng)

- If you're a muslim and like to go to the mosque for daily prayers, the hotel is in front of a mosque

- In front of the hotel is a park (well, more of a field), there are many street cuisines there
- Polite and helpful staffs


- There aren't many electrical plugs in the room. Especially near the bed so you have to go to the desk. In my room the electrical plugs are very loose.

- The TV is really small, there aren't entertainment channels such as HBO, etc. (i know it's a sharia hotel but i think the programs in local channels are far more degrading and stupid than what's on HBO).

- I particularly cringe when i see the bath towels, the color isn't white anymore, it's grey-ish, and the hotel should really consider replacing them because at home i don't even keep towels after they discolored like that.

- When i arrive at the hotel there's a really damp smell from the wet carpet hall (i think there have been a leak from the roof) and they didn't dry it off, they just cover it with some towels, so i had to smell the damp for two days.

- I don't see anything Betawi except the colonial-style building. If this hotel markets itself as a Betawi hotel, i suggest they really all-out with their sharia and Betawi theme, otherwise i don't see the difference.

I really recommend the hotel to do some updating on the facilities, because for the price it offers and for a 3 stars hotel you can have better.

That's hotel is cheaper vs location strategic. It is a good camp for training centre if you stay 1-2 months. Variety menu is good. Need for improve facility standar and service guest room.
It is also good for family packed.

This hotel have warm environment with "Betawi" local jakarta touch culture.

Nice and warm staff at the hotel, the room is quite big for two, and price is fairly cheap with great hospitality.

The location is strategic mostly close to all mall in centre of jakarta, and museum or other jakarta icon landmark.

You can use any online transportation which is cheap or else you can take a walk for free.

Food stall also available across the hotel they are ready along the side road with many indonesian cuisine. (Satay, Fries, chicken, local soup "soto, rujak/pecel "local salad" etc.)

One of good spot relaxing after Explore jakarta!
