FM7 Resort Hotel Jakarta (Tangerang, Indonesia)

3 Case Rating


Location

Hotel is located less than 10 minutes drive from airport, just off the main airport road.

They do organise complimentary shuttle service, but you must book ahead via email at hotel website.
To get to airport, they have various times to get there & you book via reception.

There is nothing really to walk too outside of hotel. However it’s great for needing to be close to airport and avoiding the nightmare of Jakarta traffic.

Room

The deluxe room was slightly disappointing. It is very large but feels like a former office building made into a hotel.

Large but soulless empty space. One feels it needs a rug or something on the hard floors. Since it is quite cold looking and with dull lighting.

The queen bed was sufficiently comfortable though and each side there are bed side tables with lamps. However no nearby power sockets, only one against wall below TV.

The flat screen TV faces the bed and has 46 channels including HBO, BBC & other international channels.

A large glass desk is offered and is suitable for working from. Plus a small coffee table with wooden chairs, luggage rack & large wardrobe also in the room.

There is a very small safe, not suitable for laptops. A fridge also exists with some small mini bar items & above a basic kettle hot drinks facility.

The bathroom was also spacious but again a little characterless but is was clean.
A basic looking shower is offered with a small sample of hotel branded amenities.

One of the main gripes with the room, is the old AC unit. Possibly due to size of room, it doesn’t get that cold despite cold setting of 21C and is quite noisy.

Overall though it is quite good value for an early morning flight but it’s quite a bland un-functional bedroom that isn’t that comfortable.

Facilities

Facilities are certainly the highlight of this hotel.

WIFI worked well in all areas and is complimentary and secure to two devices per room.

Leisure facilities are fun, there is a large indoor pool area that has a hot very large steam room & sauna with large hot or ice cold dipping pools great after the sauna.
The area is clean and the changing rooms gives at least men – flip flops, shorts to use and towels with your own locker. It’s great, open from 6am until 10pm.

There is also a spa with comprehensive menu of reasonably priced massage treatments. I tried the unique Tibetan Steam Bath and was impressed. Other leisure facilities include a karaoke lounge, a hair dresser and a convenience store right in the lobby. There is also a pool table in the bar.

Catering includes two 24hr restaurant – Thai & Indonesian cuisine with western meal items. Tried room service which was reasonably priced. Breakfast is complimentary but was quite limited in choices and with unusual items such as Cajun chicken.

There is also a cafe patisserie healthy tea place with cakes plus a pool bar. Quite good ambience.

Overall impressive facilities are offered here, they are clean but do look quite dated.

Staff

Staff are an asset to this hotel at the spa and bars. Really friendly, kind and upbeat. Check-in however was a bit inefficient, initially checked me in as someone else but check out was fine.

Overall not a great hotel for Jakarta but fine for airport. The facilities are fun and the strongest reason to stay at this hotel.
