Shangri-La, Jakarta, Indonesia

Another very nice hotel, this time in Jakarta.

This is the second time I’ve stayed at the Shangri-La, and I even think I got the same room as last time!

The hotel itself is quite nice, and the rooms are a good size. They do take security quite seriously. You will have to go through a metal detector as you enter the hotel, and your bags may also be searched. Better to be safe than sorry.

Unfortunately, due to work commitments, I didn’t get the opportunity to do any sightseeing nor use many of the amenities of the hotel but the breakfast buffet in SATOO is excellent and allows you to fill up your tank for your day of work. SATOO also has a sandwich / cake shop that makes excellent food, which was good for me as I needed to provide my own lunch over the weekend and the recent public holiday.

Last year I did eat at Rosso, the food was very good but also quite expensive. Once I converted the bill back to aussie dollars I almost fell off my chair. But you have to splurge every so often.

If I had to travel back to Jakarta I would stay again at the Shangri-La.
