Royal Kuningan Hotel In Jakarta

During my visit to Jakarta for the first U.S.-ASEAN Young Leaders Summit last December 2012, we stayed at the Royal Kuningan Hotel, a relatively new hotel in Jakarta. As soon as we arrived at the International Airport, we were headed straight to the Hotel and thanks to the infamous Jakarta Traffic, it took us around 3 hours to reach the hotel.

It is newly opened and the immediate surrounding area wasn't really fit for a "royal" structure. I am expecting though that in the near future, more establishments and improvements will be sprouting in the vicinity.

The hotel lobby was not as huge as I would have expected considering that the view of the hotel from outside made that impression. Or perhaps the 130 delegates who were crowding before the reception area waiting for their room keys made the lobby look small.

All of us were given twin suites and our rooms were really comfortable. It has two queen-sized beds, spacious bathroom and a small office table. Unfortunately, there is no wi-fi in the rooms. The wi-fi was only within the lobby and the huge conference room on the ground floor.

Every morning, we would have breakfast at the hotel's restaurant in the lobby floor. Indonesian food is delish although I would have expected more variety in the hotel's buffet. It felt like we were eating the same kind of food every day.

There is a swimming pool in the hotel where guests can find time to just relax. Other than that, there is really nothing much to see and do inside the hotel.

Of course, if you are in Jakarta, you shouldn't be staying inside your hotel.

Since the conference including our stay in Jakarta was paid for by the U.S. State Department, I wasn't sure how much were the room rates in Royal Kuningan. I did check a booking website and it seems that the regular rates would range from 150 US Dollars to 200 US Dollars per night which already includes breakfast.

Hotel staff were courteous and the food they were serving for lunch and dinner were very delicious. Overall, Royal Kuningan Hotel is an okay hotel for me. Not too bad but not too great either.
