Review: Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim Aloft Room

My mom & my sister visited Jakarta on 27th December 2018. So I booked a room at Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim. This is the first Aloft brand in Indonesia and if I’m not mistaken, they just opened about 2 weeks before the time I stayed in.

Aloft Hotels probably has a similar concept with Moxy Hotels from the Marriott. Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim offer a modern and savvy tech-forward experiences for the guest. Each of the hotel’s urban rooms and communal spaces boast an energizing atmosphere with a vibrant mural illustrating Jakarta’s rich culture and heritage, created by Indonesian recognized artists Nugroho Pratama, Artyan Trihandono, Motulz Anto and Nur Cahyono.

The sun was almost set in the horizon at the time I reached the Hotel. Like in the most hotels in Jakarta, the hotel has an ‘airport-style’ security checkpoint at the entrance of hotel’s premise.

The front desk was so simple but really effective. The agents was really nice and helpful, They even recognize me as member of Starwood Preferred Guest, even though that I’m not an elite member ;).

It was just 2 days after christmas at the time I stayed in the hotel, so the christmas ambiance was still in the air. The lobby was decorated with a creative yet minimalist christmas tree which I like.

Also in the lobby area you would find a colorful chairs, interactive screen of hotel’s directory, and mini business center.

Next to the lobby is public recreation area which called ‘Re:mix’. There you could find a full-sized billiard table and a few comfortable chairs to lounging around.

Beside the recreation area was lobby bar named ‘W XYZ’. Here you can get your welcome drink after you finish your check-in process. The drink selections wasn’t bad, though they could be better.

After sipping my welcome drink, I headed to my room at the 5th floor. I love the mural displayed displayed by the hotel in the wall of lobby area.

The corridor leading to my room was dominated with a yellow lighting. It gave me a warm and welcoming ambiance.

The room wasn’t big, but nicely appointed and functional. Considering that the hotel has just opened a few weeks ago, everything was still feels so fresh and brand new.

My bed preference is actually a king bed. However that time I stayed with my mum and sister, so I request for a twin bed instead. I love that the hotel provides a bolster on each bed. I rarely found bolster in the hotel room, not even in 5 star hotels. They also put a classic alarm clock and telephone in the middle table between the beds.

You can lounging in the mini sofa inside the room. Or probably you want to finish your task? You may want to use the working desk, the WiFi inside the room was pretty fast tho. There also a flat screen TV hanged in the wall of the room.

The room also has a mini bar, though it was empty so I don’t get the point why they even bother to place a mini bar inside the room.

The bathroom adopted a semi-open concept. I found out that there are a few room facilities & amenities in the cupboard inside the bathroom.

In the cupboard you would find an iron complete with the full-sized iron board, slipper, refreshment, safe deposit box, hair dryer, and a few magazine.

The bathroom was clean and in a very good condition. You would find basic toiletries though it wasn’t the branded one, therefore I use my own toiletries instead ;). They also provided a lot of towels, just like my preference.

You won’t find a bathtub inside the bathroom, instead the hotel installed a shower. The water pressure comes from the shower was so good, anyway.

Before I get some rest, I decided to check the hotels swimming pool and fitness center. The swimming pool named ‘Splash’ located at 1st floor. I guess it is more likely suitable for kids since the maximum depth was only 1.2 meter. But the pool side area was quite nice, with a few chairs and sun-loungers spreaded in the area.

Next from the pool side area was a fitness center called ‘Re:charge’. The provided equipments was adequate for a quick workout while you staying in the hotel, but it wasn’t the case for me :).

Before checking-out, I managed to have a breakfast in their restaurant ‘Nook’. The restaurant was also located at the 1st floor, along with the fitness center and swimming pool.

They got 2 dining area: indoor and outdoor. The indoor area was bright and spacious, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling window surrounding the restaurant. The outdoor dining area was also nice, with umbrella in most tables.

The breakfast was served in single buffet. The selection was limited, consist of several Indonesian cuisine and a few western cuisine. But the quality was good enough, I guess up to standard of Starwood’s properties.

When checking-out, I learned that they has a mini-store named ‘Re:fuel’ where you can purchase some snacks, foods, and drinks. I guess the price of the stuffs was pretty reasonable.

After check-out, I’m rushing to get a taxi to go to my office while my mom and sister still in the hotel until the afternoon.

Bottom line

For me the location of Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim was one of the huge advantage. the hotel prominently located in the heart of Jakarta, so It is really convenient for me to go from the Hotel to anywhere. Overall I enjoyed my stay in Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim. The hotel offers warm and fun ambiance without being sassy. Perhaps Aloft has a similar concept with Moxy, but I prefer more Aloft rather than Moxy. So  in the future., I guess with no doubt I will stay with this brand
