10 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

More than 10 million heartbeats power Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital and most populous city. It’s hard to describe this city — megalopolis, really — any other way than as a hub of frenetic human activity. And somehow it’s still finding new ways to grow at a clip that puts most other developing cities to shame. But one look at both the facade and the graciously designed interiors of the Gunawarman, nestled in the central business district, is enough of a reminder that not everything in Jakarta is focused on the future.

Jakarta’s centuries of history includes a history of European colonization, too. You’ll be struck by how the vibe at this hotel is indisputably Western, a nod to an old-school social club with its floor-to-ceiling wood paneling, gilt-frame mirrors, and dark leather chairs. You’d be forgiven for asking the butler (yes, they have one on staff for your convenience) where the drawing room is for after-dinner brandy and cigars. And yet the Gunawarman somehow feels perfectly modern too. Only fitting, we suppose, for this city of contrasts.

There are 35 rooms and suites to choose from, in three distinct design styles to suit your taste. The white rooms are elegant and airy, and the wood rooms feature a stand-alone bathtub to unwind en suite. And the mansard rooms, up in the rafters, are the most modern of the bunch. All share access to the aforementioned butler’s services, as well as a fitness center and Csaba, a private space for hotel guests and outside members to socialize and relax. The two restaurants on the premises are worth your time as well, particularly if you need a break from Indonesian street food (thought we wouldn’t blame you if you don’t). European cuisine is the menu du jour — but with requisite Asian influences too. Pop by Kitte for standout baked goods and join locals in the know for dinner at Sofia.
