Accor has opened its third Mercure-branded hotel in Jakarta, located in the emerging business district of Simatupang in the southern part of the city.
The Mercure Simatupang has 232 rooms designed to be modern and minimalist, but with local elements in the design such as images of city scenes incorporated. Rooms all feature workstations and there is complimentary wifi throughout the hotel.
There is a business centre offering workstations and copying, printing and fax services, with support staff on hand. There are four function rooms that together have the capacity to hold 200 people.
Other hotel facilities include a gym and a spa with Jacuzzi and massage services. For eating and drinking, there is Graffiti, which serves international and Indonesian dishes at lunch and dinner, and S.L.A.M, an open-air rooftop lounge bar.
According to Gilles Tressens, the hotel’s general manager, Simatupang, about 15km south of the centre of the city, is rapidly developing as a prominent business district.
“In the last three years, we have seen more and more businesses moving their operations to South Jakarta to benefit from its proximity to executive residential areas and easy access to the international airport,” he said.
International companies that have offices in the Simatupang area include petroleum giant BP and the telecommunications company Siemens, while Jalan TB Simatupang has been dubbed as a “business corridor”.
