Another chance to stay at one of Mercure hotels. Yaaaaay. This time, we got to stay at Mercure Jakarta Sabang. What a lovely staycation. It’s not far from our place, and it’s a great chance to stroll around Sabang area.
Mercure Jakarta Sabang is a 4-star international hotel, strategically located in the heart of Jakarta, nearby Thamrin street where corporate, Banking,Government offices and Sabang culinary street are only a few steps away. 5 to 15 minutes walking distance to the National Monument (Monas), US Embassy and Gambir train station. 45 minutes’ drive from the international airport. Ideal for both business and leisure travellers with free WIFI connectivity. Feel the intimate hotel atmospere and quiet stay.
The lobby isn’t very spacious, but friendly. I love the murals at the lobby. All about history of Jakarta. The ambiance was attentive and intimate. The 24-hour front desk are available to help guests with laundry and dry cleaning requests, arranging massages at the on-site spa and wellness centre, luggage storage, and concierge service.
Deluxe with Double Bed Room (room 507)
Our 28 m² Contemporary Deluxe Room with Double Bed features comfortable bedding, Free WiFi, bathroom shower and 32′ LCD TV supported with selected international TV channels. Garden or swimming pool view are available for your preference.
Lucky us, we got free upgrade to Deluxe Room. It’s quite big with lovely ambiance. The interior of the room is very nice. My hubby was in love with the room, for sure. When I asked him to go with me, he said, “I wanna spend some good time in our room. You go by yourself lah.” LOL. I let him enjoyed the room, then.. hahahah.. I went to one of coffee shop at Sabang area to meet Hans. It’s a really nice experience. Just walking-distance. Lovely!
The pool was a modest one. Not too big, not too small. Located near smoking area of the restaurant. When I came there’s no one inside the pool. But I was too lazy to swim all by myself. So I just stay in my room waiting for my hubby.
We had complimentary dinner at the Lobby Restaurant. They devided into 3 areas. The lounge, the dining area and the smoking area. The dinner took place in the lounge area. A very comfortable place. I really recommend the place for meeting with your colleagues or dinner with long lost friends. Psst, they have 2 massage chairs in the lounge area. Woohoo!

Love the Sop Buntut Sabang. Tender meat and well-seasoned broth. The Nasi Goreng Mercure was good, but I ate it when it's already cold. So, it's only good. I should ask them to reheat it but I was too lazy. It's ok lah. But the best was the US Prime Beef Back Ribs. Delicate and very tasty.
We did our breakfast in the dining area. Got a pretty nice sofa in the corner. The place is quite big but not many variants of food, according to us. But I found a nice chocolate bread hahaha.. Too bad the next day, it’s plain *put a cranky face* Overall, the breakfast was okay. But I think they can do better.
Thank you Mercure Jakarta Sabang and Accor Hotels. Definitely one recommended hotel around Sabang/Menteng area.
