Hotel Monopoli is the new cool kid on the Kemang block. Perfect for the young weekend staycation-er or the creative business traveler on a budget, this indie neighbourhood boutique stay ticks all the right boxes.
The past few years have been an exciting time for Jakarta’s hotel scene. A new breed of boutique hotels have opened ways for travelers who prefer the contemporary and playful, while still requiring a serious bang for your buck. Hotel Monopoli answers the call with a laidback luxe-for-less appeal, all while being located in the heart of Jakarta’s most charming neighbourhood. Perched just around the corner of some of Kemang’s best bars and restaurants, guests will be a mere a hop, skip and a jump away from the city’s hottest spots – which any veteran Jakartan will tell you is a luxury in itself, thanks to the city’s infamous traffic.
At Hotel Monopoli, guests can stay in the Deluxe, Grand Deluxe, Junior Suite, Superior Suite, Executive Suite or Monopoli Suite. There are 68 rooms in total – all relaxed and understated, with a modern retro vibe that makes full use of its minimal space. Palm-tree headboards, bamboo tray tables, and rattan fixtures bring a tropical feel to this urban stay – and believe it or not, rooms are a steal starting at less than IDR 1,000,000. Top notch amenities come in a collaborative form, an effort made by local labels like modern Indonesian textile brand Sejauh Mata Memandang, home living label Svas Living, and genderless skincare brand Good Vibes Organic. Guests will also find a fully-stocked minibar every room, though all you need for a quick nightcap is to head down to one of Hotel Monopoli’s happening bars.
In town for a business trip? Make power moves with a breakfast meeting at Bloom, Hotel Monopoli’s all-day lobby eatery, which serves a range of casual fare. Whether you’re in the mood for smoothie-bowls, cold-pressed juices or fresh deli-style sandwiches, it’s the perfect haunt to rub shoulders with the creative crowd. Once you’re off-duty, head upstairs where The Moon, Hotel Monopoli’s outdoor pool lounge and sprawling rooftop space, serves a mean drink and light bites to graze on. Craving something stronger? Slip down below to the basement, where the hotel’s underground club The Room opens late while the resident DJ spins R&B and hip-hop tunes for a bit of dancing before bed.
