DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Jakarta – Diponegoro is a 5-star hotel located in Cikini area, Central Jakarta. Situated at Jalan Pegangsaan Timur and literally near Cikini train station, the car entrance was quite small from the road. But after you get into the hotel, you’ll be surprised. It is spacious, homey, and comfortably-inviting.
There are 5 dining spots in DoubleTree by Hilton and one of them is OPEN restaurant, an all day dining buffet restaurant located right next to their fabulous and beautiful lagoon pool. You can enjoy views of the sparkling outdoor lagoon pool in a light and airy atmosphere or choose to eat al fresco on the outdoor deck. First things first, let’s take a tour around the entire ground!
OPEN restaurant has an ‘open’ concept when it comes to interior and also the kitchen with live cooking stations. You can clearly have a very nice view of hotel pool area while dining there. Especially at dusk when the lights are on, it such a lovely and romantic vibes.
Dinner Buffet at OPEN restaurant priced at IDR 328,000++ per person. There are three main sections inside the buffet: Local Indonesian, Asian, and Western. In addition, there is also salad, fresh seafood, and dessert area.
