Artotel is considered one of the best boutique hotels in Jakarta and the location is good, too. A short walk from the city’s main business thoroughfare, the 107-room hotel celebrates local art. A bold black and purple mural by local street artist Darbotz, featuring his signature “squid monster”, decorates the building’s façade and each floor displays the works of one of Indonesia’s up-and-coming artists.
Business centre It’s small but provides the basics for business and social communications.
Wi-fi Free throughout the hotel for guests.
Food and wine The Roca restaurant offers Asian and Western food around the clock and from 7pm, BART – bar at the rooftop – serves up signature cocktails such as the Traffic Light, Jumping Monkey and Spicy Rita.
Fitness and wellbeing There’s no fitness centre or pool. For those who want to stretch their legs and check out the local scene, ask the hotel staff to point you to Jalan Sabang, one of Jakarta’s most character-filled streets, where you can buy satay cooked at street stalls and watch the milling crowd.
Jalan Sunda 3, Central Jakarta
