Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim - Booking
To book the Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim hotel, you can redeem 7,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. Check whether it’s worthwhile for you to redeem points instead of paying for your stay in cash (bear in mind that recurring promotions to collect more points or benefits during your stays are only applicable to paid stays)!
I chose to pay for my stay with my Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card to take advantage of a promotion available at this time and earn 5 points per dollar for this stay.
Get Marriott Bonvoy points
The best way to earn Marriott Bonvoy points for free stays at over 8,000 hotels worldwide is to be a holder of the Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card (and/or the Marriott Bonvoy® Business American Express®* Card).
In addition to the great welcome bonus on both cards, you’ll earn 2 points per dollar on all purchases and 5 points per dollar at Marriott locations. And each year, you’ll earn a certificate for one free hotel stay (35,000 point value) and 15 Elite nights toward your Marriott Bonvoy status.
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim - Location
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim is located in the heart of Jakarta, Indonesia. It is ideally located close to tourist attractions, airports and local government offices. Nearby sites include the Grand Indonesia shopping center and the National Monument.
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim - Check-in
Like all hotels in Indonesia, a security check is carried out before accessing the lobby area. The first check takes place at the parking entrance (which is free, although I wouldn’t recommend driving in Jakarta). The second takes place before entering the building.
The lobby area is spacious, and it’s nice to sit back and enjoy a drink at the WXYZ bar. Incidentally, as my room wasn’t quite ready yet, the front desk offered me an iced coffee to tide me over.
You can also borrow small bicycles to get around Jakarta.
Near the reception, you’ll also find a convenience store and a pool table (as in all Aloft hotels worldwide, such as the Aloft Bangkok Sukhumvit 11 hotel I visited a few days earlier in Bangkok).
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim - Bedoom
My room at the Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim was on a high floor. Like what you’ll find in other Aloft brand hotels worldwide, I wasn’t disoriented.
To personalize this standard room, the staff at Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim arranged the towels in the shape of an animal on the bed.
As for the bathroom, it features a large shower (with good pressure).
What’s more, a welcome note was waiting for me on the room mirror (along with a lovely welcome gift). A much-appreciated touch of personalization!
Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim - Breakfast
Due to a 6 a.m. takeoff, I was, unfortunately, unable to enjoy breakfast at this Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim hotel.
Please note that there are several eat & drink options:
- The Nook restaurant offers a wide selection of Indonesian and Western dishes near the swimming pool.
- The WXYZ bar is a popular evening spot for cocktails and background music, located close to reception.
- Re:Fuel is a 24-hour convenience store where you can get takeaway meals, including fruit, bagels, sandwiches and drinks.

Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim - My overall impression
The Aloft Jakarta Wahid Hasyim hotel is a good option if you’re looking for a low-cost hotel, both in points and money. However, for a more extended stay, you may prefer a slightly more upmarket property such as The Hermitage – a Tribute Portfolio Hotel – Jakarta or The St. Regis Jakarta.
