Kosenda Hotel, Jakarta, Indonesia


Toronto, Vancouver, Manila, Jakarta.

After 21 hours of flying, we arrived in Jakarta absolutely exhausted. We checked into Kosenda Hotel Jakarta, laid down in our amazing beds, fell asleep at 3pm, and didnt wake up until 8am the next morning.

After freshening up, we made our way down to the stylish lobby to relax, and enjoy breakfast.

Welcome to Kosenda Hotel

We were so drained the day before, that we barely payed attention to our surroundings, so arriving in the lobby was a nice surprise.

Kosenda Hotel is original in design. It has a blend of traditional Indonesian culture, local style, and 1960s cool.
We loved the mid century furniture, some of which includes Hans Wegner chairs. Hans Wegner was a world renowned Danish furniture designer, his furniture is modern and classic, and I absolutely love it.

Kosenda Hotel was designed by an all Indonesian team of artists, designers, and architects.

The exterior of the building stands out among the dreary office buildings that surround it.

Local artwork can be found all around the hotel, from paintings on corridor walls, to a floor to ceiling mural; even the hallway walls on every floor are beautifully designed with three dimensional wood sculptures at every door.

Breakfast was included with the room and was excellent. We had the choice of a meal from their menu, and a small (but good) variety of buffet style food as well. Being Vegan, we did not order eggs with our breakfast, so they allowed us to choose 3 items from the menu.

The Breakfast Buffet

I enjoyed asparagus, rosti potato, and baked beans, and Cody had the potato rosti, grilled tomato, and baked beans. We also had fresh fruit, salad, toast, jam, fresh fruit juice, and hot tea.

Breakfast was great, and in the most stylish dining area we have been in, in quite a while.

Our room was small, but it made up for that in style. Dark teak wood furniture, burnt orange sheets, geometrical accents, a cool lamp that I wanted to stuff in my luggage, and pretty cotton kimono robes with matching slippers. And like I said up top, the beds at Kosenda Hotel  were amazing.

Love the design and style.

No matter how beautiful a hotel is, no matter how incredible the service is, if you cannot offer a comfortable good night (or day) sleep, you are not a valuable hotel to guests.

The most comfortable beds!!!

Our bathroom was small, but functional, with a fantastic waterfall shower.

On our second night, Cody and I made our way up to Awan Lounge, Kosenda’s rooftop bar. The view was beautiful, the crowd was buzzing, and my passion fruit caparinha was delicious. A stylish modern bar and garden. Fab.

Our first impression of Jakarta has been a very stylish one, thanks to Kosenda Hotel. It really was a great choice after 21 hours of flying. Comfortable, and jazzy.

Loved it!

    This place is such a gem in Jakarta. I had 2 nights booked and then ended up staying for a week. This will be the only place I stay when I go to Jakarta.
