Strategically located in the West Jakarta business district, Aston Kartika Grogol Hotel & Conference Center is connected to a shopping centre and office building and has easy access to a hospital and university. With 189 rooms spread through its 25 floors, the hotel not only offers comfort but also services in line with five-star hotels such as a rooftop restaurant, fitness centre, spa and swimming pool.
The hotel is led by General Manager Suwarjono, who has more than 30 years of experience in the hotel industry and a rich understanding of hotel development and various markets. Having been part of 12 hotel pre-opening teams in Indonesia, each of which has had its own level of difficulty, pre-opening is his favourite time as this is when the hotel’s performance is tested so that improvements can be made to provide the best service.
This has evidently taken place at Aston Kartika Grogol Hotel & Conference Center and Suwarjono noted that it excels as a one-stop business hotel thanks to its executive lounge, eight meeting rooms, as well as a luxury grand ballroom that can cater for up to 2,000 people, having been designed to accommodate conferences and weddings.
In its debut year, Aston Kartika Grogol Hotel & Conference Center has already organized multiple events. Suwarjono has prepared his team to work hard and always be creative and, going forward, he is confident that Aston Kartika Grogol Hotel & Conference Center will be able to compete as the best four-star business and leisure hotel, meeting the needs of national and international guests.
