Aloft Wahid Hasyim – Contemporary Playful Hotel
The Aloft brand is well-known for its contemporary design and unique touch for each property. Commonly found in the city center and nearby airports, the Aloft brand has risen to be a recognized brand for great leisure for young generations due to its chic design. Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim, located in central Jakarta, offers a nice break after long meetings for business people and a group of young people on vacation in Jakarta.
Another notable element that you may appreciate are that this hotel location is not facing any main road, but is still within the heart of Jakarta. You can find a lot of street food just within ten minute’s walk from this hotel. Do come early so you can avoid any long queues if you plan to dine at the street food area nearby the hotel (Sabang street).
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim Lobby Decoration
The brand put significant efforts into the details of the design, starting with its round table receptionist to welcome guests. You would not see some boring long table for greeting guests but a round table decorated with lovely LED lights. Warm receptionists are ready to welcome you anytime and have an excellent proficient English accent that is quite clear and precise.
Do take some appreciation of the lobby design, as it offers contemporary feels and is mixed with local elements to bring out Indonesian feels into the overall design feels. One prominent and noticeable thing is the high lobby ceiling gives a great impression. You can notice some of the murals painted on some of the walls.
Find the local product they display in the lobby, from wine to coffee. Sumatra and Javanese coffee is commonly said here, but of course, you can ask one of the hotel staff if you want other island coffee beans too.
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim Outdoor Decoration
There is an outdoor area for you to relax and chill under the sun or at night. This place will have a good amount of sunlight during noon, so if you like to work outdoor, this place is an excellent spot for productivity. People commonly use this place for smoking and drinking.
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim Room
There are two types of rooms available here, standard and large rooms. The difference is in the room size and is insignificant compared to the standard one. If you are two people in the room, it is worth taking the bigger one.
The bed quality is considered good, and also its linen bed sheet. You can request more pillows from a receptionist or thru the Marriott Bonvoy app chat.
The design of the shower room and also the dressing room is a bit unique. To a safe space, the place for you to make coffee and boil water is quite near to the toilet. You can pull the door to close the toilet area while showering or using the bathroom. All the toiletries are near the shower area, so you can use them and ask the hotel staff to refill them if it is finished.
The only notable from this place, the TV is not a smart TV, so you can only watch hotel TV channels. We wish they upgraded it to smart TV so we can watch streaming TV channels such as Netflix or Disney plus.
There are international plugs near the desk so that you can use them for your laptop or your smartphones, but the rest is an Indonesian standard plug, so you may get a universal plug if you need to use more than one plug in the room.
The internet connection at the hotel is superb and fast. If you are lucky, you may get 100 Mbps speed at one point, depending on the hotel guests’ occupancy. When we try this, the hotel is about 90% full. So this speed is considered a much faster average speed than you can get in other Indonesian hotels.
We do notice that nearby the hotel building, there is a mosque. So if you listen to the Adzan sound, you can request the hotel staff to change the room so they can give you the quiet one.
