Mercure Jakarta Batavia: Comforting History

Story By
Cita Arsita Farani

With historical design and modern comforts, the hotel brings the new into the old.

Located in the Kota Tua area of Jakarta, a remainder of Dutch colonial Old Batavia, the Mercure Jakarta Batavia embraces those historical roots and surroundings. Its classic architecture stands unchanged, in harmony with the museums, cafes and restaurants, art galleries and old art-deco buildings that fill the area. Inside, locally-rooted design is combined with modern twists that complement the building’s history. There are even mini historical galleries on each floor, from the third to the ninth, telling stories of the olden days. 

Both business and leisure travelers will enjoy the 376 contemporary Superior, Superior Garden View, Privilege, Family Room, Junior Suite, Executive Suite and Presidential Room, some of which feature tall, arched windows looking out onto history. A complimentary minibar and coffee machine facility are available for Privilege and Suite Rooms.

For events, the Mercure Jakarta Batavia offers the Nusantara Ballroom and 18 multifunction rooms that can accommodate up to 800 guests, complete with modern audio visual equipment. Offering authentic local and international dishes, the Malaka Restaurant is the perfect place to linger. The Lounge & Bar serve a variety of beverages and light meals, while the pool is accompanied by the Soenda Kelapa Pool Bar. Facing the garden, the gym is filled with plenty of high-tech equipment, but you can always head to the spa if you want a more relaxed time to unwind.
