Located about 2 minutes away by foot from Sudirman KRL Station, I opted to try out Clay Hotel Jakarta for my trip this time due to its easy access to both trains and buses to get around Jakarta easily.
Clay Hotel easily stands out from the walk from Sudirman KRL Station with its unique modern exterior.
Heading into the hotel to check-in.
The lobby area of Clay Hotel Jakarta.
The front desk of Clay Hotel Jakarta. Check-in was smooth and fast as I had already made my payment through agoda. A deposit of Rp.100,000 in cash was requested to be left with them for my stay.
I booked a Clay Superior room for my stay. The room was sufficiently spacious for a night’s stay.
To maximise space, the size of the toilet is reduced, with the sink and mirror placed outside.
The side table and luggage rack is integrated too.
An air well is located at the corner of the room beside the TV for ventilation if you require, but I didn’t use it throughout my stay. Asie from the air well, there are no other windows in the room.
The toilet bowl has an integrated bidet spray in it.
The shower is located just in front of the toilet bowl by the cubicle door. The water pressure and temperature was quite pleasant.
Toothbrush kits are provided by Clay Hotel.
A 3-in-1 soap is also provided in the toilet, but the dispenser pump wasn’t working. I had to resort to opening up the cover to scoop the soap out.
Breakfast was included in my stay, and was at the restaurant at the lobby level.
A western buffet line was set up at the main counter featuring simple options.
Fruits and juices were available at the breakfast buffet.
For mains, breads and eggs were available.
Over at the elevated side, the usual Indonesian hotel breakfast staple of fried rice, white rice and porridge were available too.
Overall, Clay Hotel Jakarta might feature simple rooms and food but the location makes it very convenient to get around in Jakarta and the reasonable price point makes it even more attractive. With the opening of the MRT, getting around from here would be even more convenient. I’d foresee myself coming back again.
