Business travellers can add another international-standard business hotel in Jakarta to their list with the opening of the Pullman Jakarta Central Park in Indonesia's capital.
The Pullman -- the business-level hotel brand from the Accor group, which also includes Novotel and Sofitel -- sits in Podomoro City Super Block, close to the Central Park shopping complex and handy for the Sudirman Central Business District area.
Location is especially important in traffic-snarled Jakarta, where business travellers are used to sitting for hours in gridlocked taxis.
Room decor strikes towards the modern, with bold colours, designer fittings and furniture that strikes a balance between comfortable and stylish.
In terms of facilities, the hotel offers two restaurants, the Sky Terrace rooftop garden, an outdoor pool, new gym and fitness centre, and over 5700 square metres of conference space.
It's also integrated with all the shopping and leisure options in Podomoro City, which sits at the base of the hotel.
