Where to Stay in Jakarta Indonesia

Jakarta Indonesia is not a tourist destination, in fact, it is notorious for having horrible traffic so it is very important to choose a hotel that is near a shopping center or restaurant so you don’t have a problem when you want to buy something or you want to eat out.

But despite the fact that Jakarta has traffic problems, what caught my attention is their hotels. My husband is a frequent visitor to Jakarta, Indonesia, and for the past few years, he was able to try different hotels and one of his favorite hotels is located in Indonesia.

So if you are planning a quick visit to Jakarta after your Bali trip, if you want to have a family staycation, or if you want to have a relaxed business trip then check these hotels.

Where to Stay in Jakarta Indonesia 

1. Hotel Mulia Senayan Jakarta 

Among the hotels that my husband has visited, Hotel Mulia Senayan is his favorite hotel so far. I have no doubt about that because Hotel Senayan is an award-winning hotel. It was part of the Top 15 Hotels in South East Asia in 2015 and Top Hotels in Asia: Readers’ Choice Awards 2017. Even their hotel in Bali Indonesia is also an award-winning hotel.

They are true to their word “Experience a stay like no other” because when it comes to service my husband was very pleased. Service is excellent, and you will feel spoiled and pampered especially for returning guests.

The bed, pillows, and duvet are very comfy that you just want to sleep and sleep. They replenished fruits and toiletries every day. They also give complimentary chocolates every night and sometimes they give a voucher that you can use at their restaurant. They have 5 restaurants, one lounge, a bar, and a cake shop. For amenities, they have a fitness center, swimming pool, and spa.

5. JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta

JW Marriott Hotel Jakarta opened its door in the year 2001, this hotel has been attacked by terrorists in the year 2003 and 2009. And because of these two incidents, the hotel increased its security.

6. Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel

Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel is ideally located near Gandaria City Mall so guests are just a few steps away from shopping, dining, and entertainment. This hotel has a 24-hour fitness center, outdoor pool, Anige restaurant, and Lobby Lounge.

These hotels are not budget-friendly hotels but if you don’t mind spending more for good accommodation and service, then treat yourself. I’ve mentioned before that Jakarta, Indonesia is not on my bucket list but if ever I will go there, I will have a staycation. Eat, Sleep, and Repeat.
