As one of the best luxury hotel in Jakarta, Mandarin Oriental (MO) has one of the best offer available. Best breakfast, best service, and even better, the location is right on the "bundaran HI", where most of large corporate offices are located. When I first arrived in this hotel, the most interesting is the uniform of the staff in this hotel. Their bright red uniform complemented by their round hat is very unique and gave a glimpse reminder of Tintin comics =D.

We stayed in Premier Club Room, which offered direct view to Bundaran HI. The room was very nicely designed. It consists of three separate areas, bedroom, bathroom, and living area. They provided to large comfy pillows and unlimited supply of drinking water, which is very thoughtful considering the weather in Jakarta.
During our stay, one of the unexpected event, but also quite interesting is having to watch students demonstration right in "bundaran HI", where we can see the students chanting using large speakers and banners. There wasn't any chaos or anything other than a bit of noise. The thick glass window pretty much blocked most of the noise.
Their bathroom facility offered the most complete range of options. There are rain shower, handheld shower, and full-sized bathtub. They used "Acqua di Parma" brand for the bathroom amenities, which gave a very pleasant fragrance. There is also full-set of other amenities that you can find in other five-star hotels.
Tonight during our stay we also provided with dinner-buffet complementary of the GM, which we were very grateful for. The dinner was of Egypt themes, which were very unique and interesting. Some of the food is quite authentically mid-East style, such as kebab and roasted meat. Some dessert delicacies also available, such as Baklava and Finikia. I used to lived with Greek families during my University times, and I can tell you these desserts are definitely authentic and mouth watering!
There is nothing I can say about the breakfast other than pictures… Well, it was said that picture speak of thousands words, so here they are.
