    Owned by one of the prominent hospitality company the Santika Indonesia, Santika Premiere is also a wedding/conference venue; one where many non-staying guests might crowd the elevators and lobby. That being said, do not book here expecting boutique experiences.

    However, despite its slightly corporate edge, the 4-year-old hotel has been executed with a winning, elegant restraint.

    The Deluxe room (or the standard class room in this hotel) makes good use of 22-metre-square width: twin queen beds, ergonomic cable TV, and mini bar.

    Huge windows views across Glodok district to local area (the noise does not intrude), Monas, and beyond.

    A few flashier decoration details (khaki-colored walls, chandeliers, hand-painted artwork), are kept judicious minimum.

    Decoration and ornaments fit the modern-minimalist design, but still extravagant and mature.

    The much-vaunted luxuriousness extend to every detail makes my sleep experiences more hassle-free.

    For instance, the spacious bathroom has seamless sliding door.

    Some may find it vulgar, but watching the large LCD TV while pampering my body is my kind of luxury.

    You can then secrete yourself in the two available restaurants – 22 Sky Longue would be my preference – an undeniably cosy refuge in the 22nd floor of the hotel.

    Note: the main wedding and coference room are secluded, so the hotel and its 217 bedrooms remain relatively peaceful.

    All room reservations in Santika Premiere include breakfast which is as impressive as the bedrooms.

    As a weekend getaway, and particularly 65 USD for hi-spec bedrooms with great hospitality, Santika Premiere is an obvious gem.

    So when in the need to get away from those boring Excel office weekly reports, enjoy!
